PRINCE IN PRINT
For some reason, I thought the world needed access to a large archive of text describing and documenting the fascinating world of Prince Rogers Nelson. Therefore, I collected a vast array of reviews, interviews and news articles that has become the most comprehensive on the Web. For current news about His Royal Badness, try HouseQuake.com or prince.org.
Did you ever watch a movie and ask yourself, "Where have I seen this guy before?" Get your answers the way I do -- surf to the IMDb and click some links. I've spent hours wandering around the most massive of all film resources, picking up useless knowledge so I can bore my friends.
Only one film critic has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize, and that's our pal here with the thumb. While Ebert is no longer with us, his website contains a searchable database of his movie reviews from throughout his career, and they are a joy to read. His He works on a 4-star scale, and I've learned that the low-ranking reviews are the most entertaining.
Current events and popular culture have never been skewered with more skill. The Onion is the funniest site on the Web, and in the spirit of all great satire, it can also make you think.
LEGENDS REFERENCE PAGES
Did you receive a forwarded email containing a story that sounds implausible? Did someone tell you an anecdote about something wildly bizarre that happened to a "friend of their cousin who lives in Las Vegas"? Are you simply a cynical jerk like me? Zip on over to snopes.com and check it out.
My older brother, the very talented John Howard II, is marketing his self-released CD album at this site. You can see pictures of his custom-made guitars and hear some of his wacky jams! You can also learn a lot about John by going to his personal site at JohnHoward.net.
BRAD HOWARD FURNITURE
This site showcases the furniture-making skills of my younger brother, who both designs and builds custom-made, hand-crafted cabinets, tables and shelving units. One of these days I'm going to ask him to make display cases for my Star Wars figures.
OTIS TWELVE AND DIVER DAN DOOMEY PODCAST
Otis Twelve and Diver Dan Doomey made their mark on radio comedy in the early 80s with Space Commander Wack, a sci-fi parody and satire. Over the next two decades, radio listeners in the Omaha, Nebraska area also heard the adventures of Lance Stallion, Radio Detective and learned about the life and times of the Mean Farmer. Fans of Firesign Theatre or Duck's Breath will find a lot to laugh about in these classic episodes of Diver Dan and Otis XII's greatest bits!
