The Journal of Ephemeral Inspiration

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 IX

Get ready for another week deep in the bosom of Summer, readermonkeys; here in the Nation's Capitol® it's oppressive humidity and sweaty ass-cracks all around. Hopefully the weather is less brutal whereever you reside, but just in case it's not, here's a refreshing pitcher of ice cube-chilled sites for you to drink in, all bearing the J.E.I. Seal of Approval on their condensation-drenched labels.

  • Drew Struzan
    You gotta give George Lucas credit for something: he's pretty much the only film maker still employing illustrators for his movie posters (though feel free to continue to despise him for the movies themselves). Drew Struzan's site will remind you what good one-sheets used to look like.
  • Mice Age
    A top-notch round-up of all things Disney, Mice Age is currently featuring a great multi-part photo essay on Disneyland's opening (50 years ago this week, actually).
  • Men Who Look Like Kenny Rogers
    The name of the site pretty much says it all. We admire a site that devotes itself to doing the one thing that no one else really cares to do.
  • Bob & David
    What do Mr. Show, Tenacious D, The Larry Sanders Show, The Ben Stiller Show, and NewsRadio all have in common? Besides being funny? And cancelled? That's right, Bob Odenkirk and David Cross were involved in all of those shows, either as actors, writers, or producers. Their site keeps the world up-to-date on their latest projects (as well as people the work with), all in the name of comedy that doesn't suck.

Well done, all. Insania Fragilis, Fectum Dubitabilis!
