The interwebs are full of delightful bits.

Laugh-Out-Loud Cats is the ingenious "LOLcats meet early 20th century American comic strips" comic strip created by Ape Lad. Confusingly, his birth certificate says his name is Adam Koford, and he's probably the most printed artist at Shirt.Woot.

Joey Ellis is the funnest artist you'd ever want to meet, and his Leaky Timbers educational videos are the funnest educational videos.

Few cats will make you as happy as Pusheen the cat will make you happy.

Mike Langlie is the most multidisciplined creative (creatively multidisciplined?) person I know and is the man behind the famous Toy Piano Band.

Von Glitschka is a friend and graphical powerhouse whose last name is difficult to pronounce. If he can't teach you to art(v.) digitally, nobody can.

Still on the internet after all these years, which I discovered back in the day when I was introduced to the internet, is the world's most compelling paintings of Elvis.

Full-size film poster scans-a-gogo from every decade you've been alive and then some.

All your science fiction paper craft cravings satisfied.

Eric Joyner paints robots and donuts, two things that make my heart happy.

That time I played Layer Tennis was an enjoyable experience. I'll leave it to you to figure out which volleys were mine.

Retro clip art is the best clip art.

Desert Chrome is your new bicycle.

Vector Park is a nice place to have a picnic.

Due to diminished performance and a redesign that presented my uploads less than ideally, I abandoned Flickr a few years ago. But everything is still there, a monument to something or other.

"Depictions drawn from regrettable accounts of the less fortunate for purposes of instruction; so that one may avoid similar missteps."

Whatever a "Director of Awesome" is, that's the position David Wahl holds at Archie McPhee, that wonderful store that sells the things you never knew you must have.

It's no secret that Secret Fun Blog is premium retro culturism, and Kirk Demaris, keeper of the fun blog secrets, wrote a book about mail-order merch that appeared in old comic books that's well worth your +/- $15.

Get your smarts (and enjoy it) at Futility Closet.

Several years ago I discovered the internet's freely distributed digitized versions of old radio programming, and the buzz hasn't worn off. The science fiction series Dimension X and its successor X Minus One are faves, but the high-adventure anthology series Escape remains unseated as the acme of my listening pleasure.

The genius of Orson Welles' Mercury Theatre on the Air radio performances can be enjoyed here. In Real Audio even! *Cough.*

Comprehensive, comedic classic cinema and old-time radio podcasts? Attaboy, Clarence!

There's one college football mascot that reigns over all other college football mascots, if you're into that sort of thing.

Everything you always wanted to know about Howard Phillips Lovecraft but were afraid to ask.

All the pretty, trendy things you didn't know Amazon sold beneath a single canopy.

My favorite part of the Sunday newspaper used to be Marilyn Vos Savant. I no longer read the newspaper, so I have to settle for her limited online presence.

The podcasts are the best feature, but the Retroist's overall reveling in all the pop culture things from a late 20th century childhood is bombdigity.

Barack Obama once had a meme which I decided try on myself.

Maybe I'm all alone in this, but I would have loved for a Jerry Seinfeld/Bill Gates sitcom to have become a thing.

Battlestar Galactica, Escape from New York, and Thundercats are my three favorite tracks from the plenitude which The Nick Atoms give away for free, which would appear to be everything they've ever recorded.

The slendiferously agressive surf rock of The Vultures is matched only by their generosity because they offer an album of cool covers available as a free download.

Kiddie Records Weekly is all that remains of a once much larger internet presence by a fellow who dealt in the grooviest of digitized old vinyl, but better a little than none at all.

Phil will take you by the hand and lead you to a neglected, forgotten audio land.

What the world... needs now... is Luxuria Music... sweet Luxuria Music.

Dusty Groove sells wonderful things.

Moonshot by Steve Taylor & The Perfect Foil, War Photographer by Jason Forrest, Yer Blues/Whole Lotta Yoko by The Dirty Mac, Bigtime by The Soundtrack of Our Lives, Come In Number 51, Your Time Is Up by Pink Floyd, and Zwölftonwerbung, the Twelve Tone Commercial by some clever wiseacres are music(al) videos I return to again and again.
