The Official Frank Zappa Website
How about some Frank Zappa Radio? (Choose your band-width). This world would be better off if he was still with us. And Lord have mercy on the republicrats if he were.

A Commentary on "Beelzebub's Tales"
This book is without doubt one of the most extraordinary books ever published. Its title is no exaggeration, for the book not only touches on all and every conceivable subject, but it also is all and everything—that is, a collection of science fiction tales, an allegory, a satire, a philosophical treatise, a sociological essay, an introduction to psychology, a cryptogram and, for those who follow Gurdjieff's teachings, a bible. It is a highly unusual mixture of entertainment and esotericism, humor and seriousness, obscurity and clarity.

The Rainer Maria Rilke Archive

Being apart and lonely is like rain.
It climbs toward evening from the ocean plains;
from flat places, rolling and remote, it climbs
to heaven, which is its old abode.
And only when leaving heaven drops upon the city.

It rains down on us in those twittering
hours when the streets turn their faces to the dawn,
and when two bodies who have found nothing,
dissapointed and depressed, roll over;
and when two people who despise each other
have to sleep together in one bed-

that is when loneliness receives the rivers...

Imagining Thought-Controlled Movement for Humans: "Striking progress in what can honestly be called thought-controlled robotics raises an obvious question: if monkeys can do it, why not humans? "

NPR : Gospel of Thomas Explored in 'Beyond Belief': "Theologian Elaine Pagels has written Beyond Belief, The Secret Gospel of Thomas. The text of the gospel, discovered in 1945 in Egypt, paints a different vision of Jesus than do the Gospels that made it into the official biblical canon. Pagels speaks with NPR's John Ydstie."

New Scientific Journal Challenges Establishment
A new scientific journal that challenges the expensive heavyweights that have dominated the world of research hits the Internet on Monday.
The journal, called the Public Library of Science Biology, is backed by leading scientists such as Dr. Harold Varmus, former director of the National Institutes of Health and now chief executive officer of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
They want to speed up the pace at which research is published, and also make it accessible to even the poorest of graduate students.
