As the last post of 2004, I want to wish everyone a happy new year! December turned into a horrible month, but I’m confident that January will be awesome. Don’t puke and drive, kill anyone, or get arrested. I’ll see you all back here next year.
Red Beard: activate the lifts and platforms to collect the gold.
Timelines of histories that never were. Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Spinal Tap and 349 more.
Read parts of the 1965 Boston trial of William Burroughs’ “Naked Lunch”.
Another site that has a huge collection of comic book covers. No hi-res versions available, sadly.
Hit as many lightbulbs as you can: Tiger Moth.
Sort It Out‘s a slightly different take on the “match 3 colors” game.
Thanks to Garry for reminding me of the older yet still amusing church sign generator.
Hide the kids, it’s Avery Ant and His One Minute Rant.
It’s not the best, but it is the only River Raid clone I know of.
This Theme Park Brochures site even includes my local (well, the closest anyways) teenage haunt, Canobie Lake Park.
Air Raid Sirens in picture, sound, video and more. I wonder if someone somewhere has turned this into a fetish?
If you wish to help out with aiding the tsunami/earthquake affected regions currently making the news, here’s a listing of some options for you. I’m sure they can use every penny they can get.

This collection of novelty transistor radios has some good ones, including Mork (from Ork of course) and a Fonz mini-jukebox.
Basic Hip’s Kiddie Records project is going to be great. Bookmarked for future reference.
Avoid the paparazzi and save the children: Jumpin Jacko. It’s a bit like Lode Runner minus the digging. Actually, I suppose it’s not really like Lode Runner at all then.
Another year end list: top movie mistakes of 2004.
Can your cat paint? Mine just lays about the house like a log. Maybe she needs some artistic motivation.
This collection of period paper Christmas holiday ads would have been perfect for a pre-Christmas post. Thanks to the flu, I didn’t get to it until now. If anyone else has this bug, God help you, it’s brutal.
