White Lesbian Name Generator

What's in a name? Plenty, according to the White Lesbian Name Generator. This site invites those who have come out to cast aside the name of the oppressor and "take a name that will help Lesbian Nation find you and welcome you to the Sistserhood." So Alice might now be known as Indigo ShortFruit, Jane could be Powerful FireThunder, Gail known as Flow NightNation and Trish becomes Polyester StormyCakes.

Face on Mars

You may recall some years ago a photo on the surface of Mars revealed what appeared to be a face, indicating that someone had created this work of art. We knew in our hearts that the Face on Mars would turn out to be a mound of dirt just like any other mound of dirt, whether on earth or on Mars.

Guardian Unlimited Top Ten Books

Here's a Top 10 book list with a big difference. The Guardian newspaper in the UK has asked a variety of people to list their favorite books on various genres.

You'll also find the best travel, business, music, rock and pop books. Elsewhere on this site you'll also find first chapters from some of the latest novels.

Los Super Seven

Formed in 1998, Los Super Seven's first CD won a Grammy Award for Best Mexican/American Musical Performance. Four of the original Super Seven's are back, including David Hidalgo and Cesar Rosas of Los Lobos for a CD entitled "Canto." This time out the group has expanded its sphere of influence to include the music of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Peru and Brazil. The end result is a wonderful mix of traditional and new songs that add an entirely new dimension to Latin music.
