imagination of some truly funky Web designer? Judge for yourself
on the Huggabaloos site. Play games to help the bandmates buy
snazzy outfits, or read their record and movie reviews.

of darkness you'll soon be on your way to either conquering the

Crazy Drunk Guy
Imagine sitting at your desk working like you do every day when
some drunk guy randomly calls you from a pay phone. You don't know
him, and he doesn't know you, but he asks to speak to Jack Webb from
the classic cop show Dragnet, and won't hang up. This is Jeff's world.
He sits at his desk designing Web sites and gets bizarre calls from a crazy guy
who knows his number. Luckily for us, he's taped their recent conversations and
put them online.
So you want to be a saleman, eh?
Well before you jump right into that retail job maybe
you should read some true-life horror stories on
Sales Autopsy. Even Death of a Salesman's Willie Loman
would agree that stories like this can break even the most enthusiastic
salesmen. One story tells the tale of two businessmen who stop by a convenience
store for slushies before they were suppose to give an important presentation to some clients.
The drinks gave them glowing green tongues. Oops.
Getting the Picture: The Art of the Illustrated Letter
A letter doesn't have to be boring. In fact, many artists and
creative types enjoyed adding a little art to their lengthy letters.
This exhibition from the Smithsonian's Archives of
American Art showcases letters written and illustrated by
people who really knew how to doodle. Take a look at letters
ranging in times from
1834 to 1987,
that look just as good framed
on a wall as they do crammed in an envelope.
