David Koon goes web-surfing

Posted on Fri, Nov 17, 2006 at 12:47 PM

Our resident media critic/reporter/movie reviewer David Koon occasionally stumbles into some interesting websites that are worth wasting a few minutes of your time. It's been a while since we've heard from Dave on these, but here's a good one for Friday:

This is pretty cool, a website that tells you everything you ever
wanted to know about a name -- source, derivations, names your kid
might get teased with (though this part reminded me of that Saturday
Night Live skit where Nicolas Cage plays a character named Asswipe
Johnson... pronounced Ah-Sweep-Ay... hilarious script here:
http://snltranscripts.jt.org/92/92ababynames.phtml),

Be sure to check out the "perceptions" page for each name, where people
talk about why they hate that name.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
