The Journal of Ephemeral Inspiration promises a neverending spew of pointless minutae, brilliant yet useless ideas, troublingly cruel commentary and emphatic musings on whatever shiny object happens to catch our collective eye. Always remember, hate the game, not the playa.

The J.E.I. Seal Of Approval VI

It's inevitable. You've checked your bank account, read the news, bought some crap you don't need, and surfed all the porn you can eat... what's left? Relax and let us do the driving, Timmy. We'll tell you wot's the dilly-o by recommending these fine sites that have earned the coveted J.E.I. Seal of Approval.

    Musicologist Alan W. Pollack's series of articles analyzing the complete works of The Beatles. If you understand what parallel minor keys and melodic flat sevenths are, this stuff is a fascinating read.

    We hope you've got broadband. Film historian Rick Prelinger has collected thousands of forgotten educational and industrical short films, many in the public domain and available for free download from the Internet Archive.

Well done, all. Insania Fragilis, Fectum Dubitabilis!
