Looks like AudioScrobbler is back up and accepting submissions. The software is a plugin for your media player which sends details of what you've listened to to a central server. By looking at the website, not only can you get statistics on your own listening habits, you can see who has similar tastes to yours and get hooked up with new bands. My own page is here so you can see my bizarre tastes.

Tom Baker has to be one of the biggest loons ever to act on British television:
One tortured soul I know who suffers from amazingly premature ejaculation -- I mean so premature that he hasn't got any children after eleven years of marriage -- was told by the priest that it was probably a blessing in disguise. What a piece of advice to give to a poor sod who comes off at the sound of his wife's car in the drive.

What Kind of Drunk Are You?
Seriously though, Here is a multi-faith group in the US which brings together Christian, Moslem, and Jewish families to discuss their faiths' similarities rather than the very aggressive stance that's common nowadays. Interestingly, there are descriptions of a number of stories common to the Qu'ran, the Christian and Jewish bibles and discussions of their similarities and differences. It makes my wish for more as most comparitive religion textbooks tend to treat at a very high level.
Please comment if you know of any other resources.
