Our Soulmates
Meet The OOW's Soulmates on the Web

Perhaps it's a slight exaggeration to suggest a metaphysical connection between the OOW and the work celebrated on these pages. However, there is no doubt that we have been inspired by them. Here they are, in order of discovery (most recent first).

Sites That Exist

McSweeney's Internet Tendency
Don't tell anyone, but The OOW has the biggest crush on McSweeney's Internet Tendency. The OOW wants to marry it and have lots of witty little babies with huge vocabularies and degrees in creative writing.

You should go here! No dogs will explode. Hot robot porn.

This American Life
Every week, This American Life assembles stories--documentaries, fiction, or "something else"--and shapes them into an hour-long radio program centered on a single theme. You can find the show, supported by Public Radio International, on your local NPR station, or you can listen to almost all the shows online via RealAudio. We think TAL is one of the smartest, funniest, and most thoughtful pieces of journalism around. We'd marry them but we're afraid it would ruin the friendship.

America's finest news source The Onion
It's The Onion! On the web! Who could ask for more? For our less worldly readers, The Onion is a satirical newspaper much like the OUMMCBNOM. Not quite equal in quality, of course, but very close. One can only hope that they will someday sharpen their wit upon the stone of the OOW. (Note: The Onion has some very intrusive ads.)

Monty Python's Flying Circus
We visited a number of Monty Python sites, and this one takes the cake. Or at least most of the cake. It may not be much to look at, but it will direct you to scripts, sounds, pictures, and all else Monty Python your little heart could desire without making your little body nauseous.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Megadodo Publications
A site devoted to the writings of Douglas Adams, author of such books as The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, and The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.

Sites That Don't Exist Anymore but Should

Pulsar the Ultimate Man of Adventure
Meet Pulsar, the best see-through action figure to come out of the 70's. For mature audiences only, please.

The Tick
When we deign to watch television, The Tick is one of our very favorite programs. See our review in Volume x, number x. Okay, okay, we never wrote the review. But we meant to, and it would have been good.

If any of these links does not work, or offends you terribly, please write and tell us. And yes, this is a clever ploy to get more letters.
