My friend Jennifer Bolton makes amazing cakes like this one:

A few other favorites of mine:


but if you haven't taken a gander at the whole gallery, you really should. I'm not sure if she makes them for hire, but it couldn't hurt to ask... :-)

After Google pulled out of China, China issued these instructions to domestic news sites about how they are allowed to cover it. It's one thing to know that China practices censorship, but another to read the actual rules they issue - makes it much more creepy.

Ben Folds being awesome on chatroulette (NSFW language) - apparently doing tribute to Merton, who did it first. (and now is taken down from YouTube)

After a Mississippi high school cancelled a prom rather than allow a same-sex couple to attend, a Georgia high school did allow a same-sex couple to attend...and then the guy's parents kicked him out of the house. Sigh.

Given that the linked site doesn't prominently show this, I would appreciate if you mention/give credit to Merton for the original chatroulette improv idea. Ben Folds was doing tribute to him.

Fair enough. I was irritated that Merton (whoever he/she is)'s video got taken down from YouTube so I never saw it...

D'oh :( You should see if someone archived it some other way to have available, it was quite good.
