Here's a transcript of the speech Tim Robbins gave to the National Press CLub the other day. (Via Memepool.)

In honour of Easter, here is a tale of obssession that is nonetheless monumentally cool, a church built out of Lego. (Via Boing Boing.)

Here is the best piece yet about the ruin of Baghdad's history.
 
In the "Why don't I just bend over for you?" department, take a look at this publishing contract from a joke of a writing contest being held by Fountainhead Productions, Inc. Note especially the section titled "Publishing and Rights Acquired".

Note to new or aspiring writers: it's bad enough to have to pay a fee (especially one as large as this) to enter, but it's much, much worse to give up all your rights to your work for all of eternity. I see that Mr. James G. Fennessy, Esq., 150A Morristown Road, Matawan, N.J. 07747; (732) 583-2211 is kind enough to list all of his personal details. If I have time, perhaps I'll soon call, just to say hi.
