Some cute links for this Memorial Day Holiday. They have nothing to do with Memorial Day, but hey, it's worth an entry.
Anyway, first up is The Norman Rockwell Code (link via Flutterby)—a parody of The Da Vinci Code. I will say that the main actor does a killer impression of Don Knotts as Barney Fife (only here, he's playing Barney Fife's son).
The second one is The Albino Code (link via kisrael.com), yet another parody of The Da Vinci Code, only not as good as the first one (it could have stood a rewrite and some serious editing) as it tries to show how silly it is to have an albino monk as your stealth assasin.
You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
