NORTH MAINE

The North Maine Woods is a special place, about the least civilized locale I can get to in a one day drive. Restore is an organization dedicated to undoing some of the harmful effects of humans on this ecosystem.

Millinocket is just a town, but I always found it a fascinating and rather eerie one to visit. Stephen King stuff, huge paper mill dominating rundown community many miles from anywhere else..

JOHN CALE

Probably the weirdest member of the Velvet Underground (and with Lou Reed and Nico, that's saying a lot!) yet still going strong today. Lots about him here , and you can listen to his newest stuff, released yesterday, in fact, here..

You can look Nico up in this fascinating site devoted to 'Swingin' Chicks of the '60's'

RESTRAINED

..and it would seem that the 'swingin' chicks' of THIS decade have created a lot of insecurities in their mates. How else to explain the interest in Chastity Belts responsible for the plethora of sites on the subject?

Two of the best ones are: site 1 - and- site 2

If your interest in restarints is more parochial, here's Handcuffs.Org


ASIAN ART

Lots of pages, lots of genres, lots of traditions: here
