Reduce, reuse, recycle. This week I missed a seeing a show because when I wrote back to accept my friend's offer of free tickets, I used a naughty word. He didn't get the email because it went to his spam folder. The lesson I learned from this is that my friend's spam filter is fucked up.
Save As, an exhibition of works by artist/photographer Adam Harvey, takes spam subject lines and digitally maps them into large-scale pornographic images. You can send in your favorite subject line to be included in an audience-generated work. Emails already received are here. via Wired
Naked truth. Maybe they will set a naked world record for naked people dancing to videos and send it in to the naked world record site.
Toe jam. Angel Boi is world's first foot fetish rapper, but surely not the last. Check out the
unlistenable hit summer single Toe Lover. Hey, it's audience participation week on TWiS--looks like he is casting for the Toe Lover video. via del.icio.us/tag/fetish
Is that a gun in your...well, yes it is! Some shooter guy strips to raise funds and covers his thingy with a big gun. Which reminds me: people who do this naked fundraising stuff should be shot. This includes the old ladies in bucolic English villages and the hot athletes in ski towns. You are all going down. It has to stop.
Department of Duh. San Fransisco "could be" world's gayest city.
Cows and the people who love them. Disturbingly lovely photos by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Also disturbingly lovely photos of horses and the people who love them, but the cows are cooler. Also photos of the French.
Pet tricks. A hard-hitting look at the gritty world of furries-for-hire.
Clamshake. One of my pet peeves is the boneless, clammy handshake. If you think you have one, 1) you scare me, and 2) trade it in for a model with flesh and blood.

Ultra-Orthodox "sex commandos." A group of Jewish ultra-Orthodox hackers is waging a war against pornographic web sites, replacing their content with the picture of a rabbi, an Israeli paper reported. Don't they have other battles going on?
Mother's Day gift idea: homemade tampon art. If you do that this year, you can get away with cards from now on, because she won't want any more gifts from you.
