Jump The Shark Music

They call it "jumping the shark," that moment when an artist goes from being your favorite to become just another group. Did Metallica cross over to the land of no return when they went after Napster? And what was the deal with Destiny's Child lipsyncing at the NBA Finals? Pick a category and cast your vote. And be sure to check out the Jump the Shark Television as well.

EyeWitness to the 20th Century

It was just a few days ago that one of the last (if not the last) living survivor of the sinking of the Titanic died. This site features a first-hand account of the sinking from Elizabeth Shutes, then aged 40, who was governess to nineteen-year-old Margaret Graham who was traveling with her parents. Visitors will also find first-hand accounts of Spiro Agnew's bribery payment, the final days of Capt. Robert Scott's expedition in the Antarctic and much more.

FOUND Magazine

You may have heard of "found" art, pieces of art that are created using found objects. Well, here's a magazine that follows the same principle. Editor Davy Rothbart's idea was to have "people send me discovered notes, sketches, etc. plucked from the street, subway, bus stop, public library or dead letter office." The result is a wonderful collection of photos, notes and other objects, many of which can be found at this online version of the magazine.

Political Compass

In this time of a so-called global economy and renewed fighting in the streets, perhaps it is time to revisit our old notions of what it means to be "right" or "left" in the political spectrum. As they say here, "on the standard left-right scale, how do you distinguish leftists like Stalin and Gandhi?" The fine folks at One World Action have come up with a series of agree or disagree questions that will help you to determine where you stand in the new world.

At you can find out all the latest information about the most recently defaced Websites. Unlike many such sites, Safemode does not copy from other sites, only lists sites that they have seen with their own eyes and will only divulge that information that you actually see on the site. A mailing list is also available if you'd like to keep up on all the latest defacements. You might be amazed by how many sites are defaced each day.
