I wish I had ...
1. some short, humour, story links.
2. some interesting newspaper links.
3. some photoshop/illustrator (technical), plugins ets, links.
4. some search engines other than Google.
5. some commas.

Glenda, you are the soul of generosity!
Here's my favorite newspaper link:
There's a sale on semicolons- I bought you some.
Sorry, here's the newspaper one again. Actually 1 and 4 are both story links:
#5e. should have been this:
Thank you Glenda, I feel much better now.
Pam, really, you are spoiling me!!!
Les these are fantastic!!!
It feels just like Christmas has come early.
Now if you were a real nice kid you would pass this on to those on the U.S.P. by transferring all these hyperlinks to the thread called: RESOURCE CENTRAL
p.s. I went to school with Santa Claus, not much of student really.
I am not a child.
Les, tad concerned, do you think you are an elf?
Leiky, helps if you read them.
Here are a few I found:
FRONT PAGE NEWS 41 COUNTRIES AT A GLANCE.
12 Most Luddite Films of All Time.
... still no photoshop/iiustrator links sniff
... still no short funny stories sniff
Marian-NYC, many thanks, there are so many American newspapers it is hard to know which one to choose.
Thanks Les, nursefriendly!, sweet! - your clean humour site is also good.
I found these for myself, thought I'd share
Is the word Poetry somehow unclear to you, Leicxky?
hmm, p-o-e-t-r-y, poetry? po et ree? ...
... there is Poetry in wishes, is that not true?, Hugh.
OK, I wish for ...
... some poetry about the body seen as a ladscape, happy?
OK, I wish for ...
... some poetry about the body seen as a landscape, happy?
I've heard "po-et-tree" and "poy-tree" and "por-et-ree" and I only want to say that in my opinion the word POETRY ought to sound as if it includes the word POET.
Poetry about the Body as Landscape
Leicxky--would you be interested in PROSE about the the Body as Landscape? Without waiting for a reply, I will direct you to some:
Jonathan Lethem essay that includes this: "My body seemed to me vast and ponderous, a felled redwood on the forest floor, a Sphinx poised in the sand." [www.randomhouse.com] />
Kurt Vonnegut's awesome novel MOTHER NIGHT has a long passage about the "nation of two" that the lovers create in their imagination, and how he superimposes a map of that nation on her body.
I think you'll find a lot of good stuff on Bartleby.com. I was going to try that, search the VERSE collection there for "body + mountain" and "breast + river" and things like that. First I typed in just "body" and up came a poem that begins: "MY body which my dungeon is..." To my great surprise, that's a line from RLS: A Child’s Garden of Verses!
The thing about Bartleby is: To search for a combination of words (say BODY and MOUNTAIN), you have to search for just the word BODY, and then when the hits come on screen, add the word MOUNTAIN to the search field (no plus sign) to limit the search.
A search for BODY and MOUNTAIN led me to a sexy Frost poem called "Putting in the Seed." So I think a few imaginative searches will get you lots of good stuff.
I love it!!!
Thanks so much!
Yep! this is the kinda stuff I've been looking for!!!
It seems that way, since we're a large country, but per town, we tend to have only one or two. Now newspaper buying in London- that's a treat!
Mother Night is magnificent and always seems to be neglected or forgotten
"corpse carriers to the guardhouse" !
OK, and your point is ...?
I haven't a point......just a fan of Mother Night !
I am happy you are happy shrugs
I'm starting with The Onion, it's America's finest, dontchaknow!!!
Really is amazing reading!!!
If I have brought another reader to THE ONION, then my living has not been in vain.
And if Johnny Sansculo*and I can bring more readers to MOTHER NIGHT, then our livings have not been in vains.
There is a little-known film version of MOTHER NIGHT. It's the most faithful novel-to-film adaptation I know of. But I really can't imagine what the movie would be like to someone who didn't already know the book.
*Please, please, let that be short for "Sansculotte." The alternative is too painful to think about.
No sorry....it's as bad as you imagine ! It's my mob nickname...
Johnny No-Ass !
I'm constantly teased about it......I happen to think its fine but others with larger posteriors seem to find it amusing to point out my lack thereof !
and YES I have seen the movie of Mother Night and wondered EXACTLY the same thing.....what a person who never read it would think.
and I read the Onion as often as I can !
Love "Our Dumb Century" best piece of satire since the National Lampoon "kennedy" issue of 1977 or thereabouts !
Yes, THE ONION does brilliant satire of life in today's U.S.A. ...
and satire is a DYING ART in today's U.S.A.
My favorite all-time ONION headlines:
President Asks Congress for $30 Million to Fight Criticism.
Area Girlfriend Still Hasn't Seen APOCALYPSE NOW.
I can't sya specifically what my favorite Headline is.....from "our Dumb Century"...but it concerns the Moon Landing
(can i say "Moon"?)
and dont say "Emily Dickinson" here or you'll get hollered at !
I think Colin Polyps's son is watching you !
i just love spongmonkeys
i wish very much to see them playing alive in my coutry. hopefuly the environmental conditions will be ok for them here.
so please don't shout at me if they are not quite your blood type and you feel i wasted your time. i just want to help them become famous
