Cereal Killer

I could eat cereal for nearly every meal. .

And i often do.
Apparently, other people think the same way i do.
It's Saturday morning all the time- 'Cereality' founders think outside the box and bring people together
I would definitely patronize a fine establishment such as that. Though, they better have plenty of Quisp cereal for me. We can't forget the delicious taste of Quisp!

There is lots of cool cereal-related stuff online.
The Empty Bowl is "The Definitive Source For All Your Cereal News," or so they say. Actually, it is pretty informative.
Topher's Breakfast Cereal Character Guide has a good rundown of all the weird cereal characters through the years, like Tusk the Elephant, a scholarly chocolate-colored elephant who wore glasses and sang the praises of Kellogg's Cocoa Krispies.
Topher is apparently also responsible for The Boxtop, a good cereal netletter. I mean, hell, i forgot all about Cookie Jarvis, (right), the magical Cookie Crisp cereal wizard.
How To Pick A Breakfast Cereal is an informative page about which cereals are good and bad for you.
Of course, so many that i like are on the shitlist (i'm a bit surprised that my beloved Rice and Corn Chex cereal are on the BAD list - thankfully, Wheat Chex is still on the good one) but what can you do. Other than cry.
And here's a short History of Breakfast Cereals, though, the The Early Days of Breakfast Cereal is also quite good.

Pimp out your site yo
White writers really need to stop with the 'bling-bling' usage. It's so bad.

Laugh and cry for kicks
A whole bunch of recordings of people laughing and crying.
it is true, when you listen to enough people laughing, it can be quite difficult to restrain at least a smile/chuckle/guffaw/snicker.
laughing is contagious, and a contagion too. maybe.

Study: Web site's appearance matters
Your web site looks like crap. change it.

Google's Boycott Misses the Mark
more than a bit ironic considering Cnet obtained the information in question about Google's CEO by Googling him.
And others think Google needs to be MORE evil
the investors talking, see.

CBGB's survives
For some reason, i was never worried it was going away.
However, the NY Times' Jon Pareles wrote a rather convincing article saying that maybe CBGB's should close.
You Want Punk Rock? Close CBGB, Say Goodbye

Who's the Comedian? He Looks Like a Kid, but Andy Milonakis Is MTV's Funnyman of the Moment
i can't believe Andy Milonakis is actually 29 years old.
It really changes how to take his humor, for sure, knowing he's actually not a teen.

'Big Fish' Actor Matthew McGrory Dies
Kind of a sad story about Matthew McGrory, who was just 32 years old and died of natural causes. Obviously, being 7 feet 6 inches tall isn't exactly natural. Kind of a sad story, really. He was most recently in Rob Zombie's new movie, The Devil's Rejects. And here is McGrory's website.

And speaking of death, i only recently learned about the death of Thurl Ravenscroft (great name, huh?), best known for being the voice of Tony The Tiger for Kellogg's Frosted Flakes (i have a box at home, Grrrreeeeaat!) and, of course, the man who sang "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch" in Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
Godspeed Thurl, Godspeed!

This will make you quite uncomfortable
Don't say i didn't warn you.

Progress isn't made by early risers. It's made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.
