Don't watch Aeon Flux, do watch Serenity. Don't read newspapers, do read comics. Don't make resolutions, do eat and drink too much. Get more exercise and drink more water, make whimsical gestures and dream your days away. Happy holidays.

[toys] - Domino Day 2004

Domino toppling in Japan (click left images, then left blue buttons)

it's like a cross between kinetic sculpture and pencil carving. i love it. (and am quite terrified of being subjected to a hell of actually participating... though its more of an ADD's hell.)

Philip Morris owns the brands Kraft, Del Monte, Jell-O, Kool-aid, Post cereals, and more.

WAL-MART: The High Cost of Low Price. more at boingboing. "a list of all the Procter & Gamble products ... Boycott These Procter & Gamble Products Until P&G Stops Using Animal Tests"

The Coca-Cola Company Brands. Their biggest profit margin is on Dasani bottled water, which is purified local tap water.

The oil industry - avoid Exxon, Esso, Mobil. (Try to use Shell or BP supplied stations, they make the most effort at environmental care)

Monsanto. mostly industrial products, but they do make nicorette.
