Blatant Lies, Lies, Lies!

Lies can be useful tools in seeing the truth.  And parodies may be easy humor but there’s always room for them in our bowls.  In fact, we make extra room for them around here.

Stargazing: WikiSky and beyond!


WikiSky is an incredible site.  Look at comets, stars, the whole shebang; move your cursor over them and see what they are named.  Pick one and make it yours.

Or check out this site for some incredible photographs like the one featured here of Messier 51, aka The Whirlpool Galaxy.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
