I was always dissapointed as a kid that my favorite Japanese movie monster Gamera never fought Godzilla. But now, there's strange fan fictionto come to my rescue. Remember, "Godzilla vs. Gamera" is a trademark of Matt Lutes. I'm sure neither Daiei Corp., Toho Corp., or Sony have a problem with that.

Kalashnikov Arms, makers of the most widespread firearms in the world. But what the heck did this banner ad pointing to them have to do with Cisco Systems? Any translators out there? And what the hell kind of uniforms are those guys wearing, anyway?

Brainwashed, your one-stop shop for "music which deserves better recognition on the net and the rest of the world". Experimental, apocalyptic, and industrial bands all have official homepages here, in addition to other features such as a Weekly Digest and MP3 Jukebox.

The SEDS Messier Catalog is a beautifully done and very deep site that explores the classic, well-known deep-sky objects cataloged by Charles Messier.

I wish I had several spare multihour chunks of time to spend exploring this one.
