Another shoutout to CLEO J for the once-lost, now found link to the infamous photo of Yul Brynner totally nude. Also he still has hair but that's not the point.

Two good signs for 2003: Gettysburg and the Holocaust Museum are both tweaking themselves in inclusive directions. Plan a trip to one or the other, why not?

The best part of this story in zen calm ink's new local newspaper is when eleven singing gay guys show up and it's considered fabulous. Times really have changed, yesterday's election notwithstanding.

Guess who's back? zen calm ink, that's who. With a fine link (from Leonard Pierce) about the psychology of a society enthralled with going to war. In other news, zen calm ink now resides in Montgomery County, Maryland. We believe relocating was an excellent choice due to the fact that we now have the BEST POLICE CHIEF (with the crankiest cat) in the whole world.

No new entries for a whole MONTH? I guess it's because zen calm ink is busy moving its base of operations from beautiful New Jersey to somewhat greener pastures. Updating should be back to normal by October. Please enjoy the many exciting links in the sidebar if you're bored.

Top Ten Conservative Idiots is updated weekly. This week, it contains the following sentence: "We've said it before and we'll say it again - if the terrorists hate us for our freedoms, the simple solution is to take our freedoms away. And thankfully we have a simple President to put this plan in motion!" Thanks to WriteBrain for this link.

This link is for Leonard. Also, for me, as soon as I get the PC version.

Homophobia not a phobia, according to psychologists from the University of Arkansas who claim that homophobia is caused by disgust, not fear or anxiety.

Back in 1986, every Mets win triggered pervy scenes of baseball slash fic in zen calm ink's fevered brain. Nowadays it's all wrestlefic and hockey smut and -- God Bless America -- NASCAR slash. Still, the hunt for Keith Hernandez m/m NC-17 fan fic goes on. Submissions being accepted now.

Classic works of art featuring girl-on-girl action. Well, maybe not action. SHOUTOUT TO DALMATIA for this one.

This makes me feel sorry for those poor male trout. Sort of. I mean they don't know, I guess.

COINCIDENCE OR CONSPIRACY!??. They actually covered this story on the local news here in NYC. They went to Times Square, folded twenties as shown and then showed the results to passersby who were suitably freaked out.

Here's the rotten tomatoes round-up of Attack of the Clones reviews. And here's Salon's complete pan. (Shoutout to Eddie!)

The New York Yankees have a nicely comprehensive homepage. Check out the history of the House that Ruth Built. And while you're at it, maybe you want to check out the amazing MLB schedule watch.

If you live with a parrot -- or any living creature with delicate little lungs -- here are some tips on safe cleaning products. However, I highly UNrecommend the anti-mouse tip at the very bottom of the page. Sometimes these bird people aren't that nice to other species.

zen calm ink is super busy this weekend, cleaning one house that's got to be sold so the whole zen calm ink operation (me and Fredo, basically) can move into another house. No, we're not cleaning the current home of zen calm ink. It's a long, happy story. UH OH! Break's over! Later!

The kool kats at MadKats have introducted a passel of new features to better serve the Drag King community. Do you want to hang out and chat in the online forum? How about shopping for that special someone at one of the three new stores: drag king, tranny or butch-femme?

zen calm ink's pals at MadKats have partnered with Amazon and they say this is the first time all these fabulous products -- DVDs, CDs, books, and tapes with drag king, butch-femme, and tranny themes -- have been available in one place. You know, besides their apartment. So CHECK IT OUT RIGHT NOW! You know you want to.

Sunday, April 14, 2002
Nothing today, probably because zen calm ink is busy collecting links for money elsewhere. Don't ask, it's not as much fun as it sounds like it is. And after the links, it's tax time.

I love the little gizmo I got from Atomica. I can click on any word -- in any document -- and get a hyperlinked definition (as long as I'm online). It's probably my favorite free download ever, still the leader since back when it was called GuruNet.

Make a 3D virtual model of yourself here. VERY COOL.

Interesting blog; I especially like the logo which immortalizes the moment when Bugs Bunny said something to the effect of "monstahs are such innnnnnnnnteresting people."

Why hasn't there been an update in, like, a whole week or something?

In completely unrelated news, check out "Dynomite," a new game at PopCap. Did you know you can download trial versions of Alchemy and Diamond Mine (aka Bedazzled)?

(now bringing links to
at least
six people!)


NEW! Email link now updated so it actually works!
