Lancelot Link(s), Secret Chimp

Just when you think you're finally out of "link" puns, you get pulled right back in.

Juliana Hatfield fans (and you all should be Juliana Hatfield fans, because she's so completely beyond wonderful that it defies explanation) will want to check out this page ASAP. Juliana is offering up new tunes for download using the "farmstand honor system." Basically, you download the songs and then, if you're a good person, you click on the Paypal link and send some money her way (the iTunes standard of $1 per song is recommended, but you can donate whatever you feel like, really). Or, if you're like me and have a near-Luddite fear of Paypal (and yet I use other online retailers with little worry; I'm odd like that), they provide an address where you can send cash (or check or money order, I suppose) to Juliana in care of Fort Apache Records (51 Village Square Bellows Falls, VT 05101). So yeah, check that out today, because, as I said, she's really really great.

Elsewhere, the folks at Howling Curmudgeons have concocted a great new game, Six Degrees of Snapper Carr. They submit that the JLA's annoying ex-mascot is the Kevin Bacon of the comics world and can link to just about any character on Earth-Comics in 6 steps or less. Then they take it even further, bringing in TV, movies and everything else, so Snapper Carr might even be more Kevin Bacon than Kevin Bacon his own self. The rules get a little fuzzy and out of hand (which I admit I say because they disqualify my link of Barnaby & Mr. O'Malley to Snapper, yet they allow someone to link Sgt. Schultz from Hogan's Heroes; hey, I'm bitter about that), but it's still a fun game just the same.

Of course, in my mind, the real question is this: is Snapper better connected than Rick Jones? The world may never know.
