Not Quite The Real Thing

Fun With Parody Sites

When someone gives the weather report as though they were writing in the style of Dr. Seuss, you have a parody. Likewise, when someone takes a TV show such as Paramount's Star Trek and turns the characters and stories tongue-in-cheek, that's parody. Some folks don't like to have their work parodied, but it's actually a form of flattery in the sense of being imitation. It points to the original work or person and gives them an even more lasting bit of fame by stretching the ideas with which they began. Here are a few places of parody on the Web.

I must warn you that one of the features of parody is that it may appear to be offensive to you if it parodies your particular favorite sacred cow.

I must also caution that although I have screened these sites to weed out the ones with risque content, you should still use caution since things could change at the sites at any time--or they could link to other sites that contain material that may affect you in unpleasant ways. Please monitor your children's viewing. Your idea of offensive may not match mine!

One other thing--I must warn you that several of them contain a horrific number of pop-up windows--which I suppose someone will parody someday too.

Come along as Captain Picard's Travel Logs
take us where "no figurine has gone before".

Beaver County Militia
wants us to know how militant they are about non-violence.

Lens Cap Cam
celebrates the world of web cam lens caps.

It began with a very famous internet service provider, but now it has become America Outtaline.
National Rifle Association Christian Bible Choir
has a ring to its name.

Look for the little guy putting his foot in his mouth over and over and over and over at Jerry

Not content to parody only one thing, these clever folks
have combined the forces of two popular investigating teams
and have come up with
The Scooby Doo/X-Files Conspiracy Theory

Once you visit this site you'll know for certain
The Truth About Black Helicopters.

Ah--my old stomping grounds gets ribbed a bit with
The Ultimate Martha Stewart Collection
will make you look at green gelatin molds in a whole new way.
And oh, dear--Martha as Borg?

The Daily Humorscope
does as good a job as any serious horoscope I've seen.

Toon Zone
has links to many cartoon parodies.

Helly Jelly
is for those who seek a more exotic jelly bean than coconut or mango.
They can't fool us with that old "free dog" routine.

Chicken Soup For The Soulless
will have you in tears--or not.

Mars Pathfinder Mission Pictures
I'll take Marshattan.

Magellan's search engine is aped by Magilla.
The T.W.I.N.K.I.E.S. Project
addresses fluffy snack cakes as science projects.

The Internet Blink Exchange
Tired of banner ads that produce little or no click-throughs? Exchange this!

This one snickers at Gates and Windows.

We almost forgot to make fun of the politicians! Dang Funny Politics.
Postcard Madness
How to get fired while you're out on vacation.

Design Your Own O'Reilly Book Cover!
This is great fun---interactive parody!

Stupid 911 Calls
Unfortunately, people really are this stupid sometimes.

Once upon a time there was a man with a gentle voice and quiet charm. He made several movies and worked in a TV show playing a character who rode a motorcycle from town to town, touching lives, and singing a little here and there. Then some of us didn't hear much of him for awhile.
We wondered if he would ever come to sing for us again.

Michael Parks is singing, and he recorded 17 songs for us to enjoy.

Included are:
Where Is Your Heart (Moulin Rouge)
I'll Never Be Free
Don't Go To Strangers
Together Again

This CD was a long time
coming, but it was
worth waiting for.

We're pleased to host the work of artisan Joan Garnand on our little patch of light on the web. Joan's creations are finally finding their way out of her Tennessee community and into the hearts of admirers everywhere.

Joan will be spending time this summer doing face painting and hand-painted stationery at Tennessee festivals.

See the man in the banner below this text?
                Go ahead--take a look.
                                 Take a good, long look.
Memorize his face.
This man is Scott L. Schwartz.
If you ever get into trouble, you'll want him on your side.

This guy means business.
And his business is playing big and bad.
Big may come easy, because he's 6'10" and weighs about 300 pounds.
I'm not sure how he pulls off the bad part though, because he actually seems to be very...

Well, never mind. Just click on the banner and get ready for some action.

Scott played a mean old "torturer" in The Scorpion King which opened April 19.

And in Spiderman--opening May 3--he'll be a camouflage wrestler.

Remember to help me celebrate my upcoming 50th birthday! See the Special Feature in last month's Review for details!
Here's how to get your 10,000 extra points. Go to ADRA's Really Useful Gift Catalog. Go to the "A Little Something For You" section, and then get your very own Adraena, the bunny mascot. Send me a picture of you with Adraena in smail mail or email. You must have the picture to me by midnight, July 31, 2002 to qualify for the extra points!!
While you are at the catalog, please consider helping with other gifts. I have been a supporter of ADRA for years, and I admire the work they do in both the U.S. and in other countries. A lot of their work involves immunizing children and protecting the little ones against famine and disease. They also work with other agencies, through the United Nations and other organizations, to coordinate disaster relief in times of emergency. They are not one of the most well-known agencies in worldwide aid, but they are one of the best.

When you can't sleep it makes your nights miserable. Some other conditions can affect our ability to sleep, and there are often things we can do to help ourselves get more rest. Have a look at the aritcle on Sleeping Conditions - Sleeping Aids from CNN.

    When you send me information via the form,
it's only for my use and for the Notify List.
This means you'll get an email from me once
or twice a month, mostly to let you know the
new issue is in place.

I do not sell or share your information with
people who compile mailing lists.
