I know it's weekend, but let's work on some political awareness, shall we? President Bush always claimed he had no personal relationship with Enron chairman Kenneth Lay (I love that name). The Smoking Gun however, published correspondence which seems damn personal to me ("Dear George, how's your knee?") Another amusing document is this pamphlet, distributed among the Nicaraguan population by the CIA. It encourages them to sabotage the Sandinist regime by being lazy, wasteful and to indulge in every other act of civil disobedience that could lead the country into utter chaos.
Tomorrow: something more light-hearted.

Did anyone ever see the foreign film oscar nominee 'Everybody famous'? Well, if you didn't. Here's the movie in one startling image.
Friday is game day, I know. But hey, I'm sorry, I just couldn't find anything decent this week (except the Ant Game that I posted yesterday). Xiao Xiao has come up with an 8th animation, which is still cool, but somehow has lost that certain edge. However, last Friday I asked to tell me how to win Pearls Before Swine and as I haven’t had a single reaction so far, I suggest you play it again. I know I did.

After the endless loading of this guy's banner overloaded macho website it's natural to feel a certain aggression. Maybe even a destructive urge. If so, go here, don't go here.
Another good mixer to test your producer skills

Well, it's official: we are funny men here at PLAY. The Weblog Review says so, so it's true. Don't forget to vote for us.
I don't agree with the entire review, though. We try really hard to make this site child-friendly, you know. It's not like we have a lot of dirty stuff on here. But just to make amends for any possible non-educational posts in the past, we'll present you with some wholesome info and responsible linkage today. Let's start off with some art. The Korean Web Art festival started and it really looks promising. Hell, while we're at it, let's all enjoy some shakespeare (warning: quite boring introduction and surprise ending). Although I have to admit it's a chat-internet version of lovelorn fantasy. But the kids will relate to it. And if you can't even stand that, well why don't you just shut down the entire Internet.
It's time to go back, back in time. The Internet Archive is an amazing website, archiving more than 950 educational and commercial movies from the 40's, 50's and 60's. Among them such beauties as "Dating: Do's and Don'ts", "Act Your Age", "Drug Addiction" and the classic "Duck And Cover". Find them in the index and check them out! I mean it!
The main focus of the Internet Archive, however, lies on their collection of lost Internet Classics. From the 70's military Arpanet (you'll need the DjVu plug-in) to the first Yahoo homepage and the first webcam, filming the Trojan Room Coffee Machine (which has recently been auctioned for a lot of cash).

Ghostwatcher is a website invented by a paranoid freak. In order to come to terms with the strange noises he hears at night, he has installed 31 webcams in all dark corners of his apartment. That way, the whole of his apartment can be monitored for paranormal activity by every Ghostwatchervisitor for 24 hours a day. I 'm not sure whether this will put his mind at rest, though. He seems to be flooded with messages from either other paranoiacs or jokers who mess with the pictures in Photoshop. (Found at Portal Of Evil)

We swear we have nothing to do with this mailing project. But it's true: PlayMail - Put Email into Other People's Mouth- could have been spawned by our evil minds as well. Just imagine a dog reading out your mail to other people. No, really...See for yourself (requires real player)
And it's one two three...the kids love the monkey...
And it's four five six...the monkey's got a hockey stick...
This could turn out sick, but don't worry, It's just America's favourite all-hockey band The Zambonis.
The little man in the box. (found at Metafilter).
The Toilet Online called this "the best picture ever". They may be right.
George Bush. I always knew he was a closet blonde bimbo
