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 X

Sorry for the posting delay, kids-- a one-two punch of pop-up thunderstorms and microbursts wreaked havoc with the public utilities that feed juice and connectivity to the JEI compound. Fortunately, we were able to get back on the grid in time enough to thwart Hans Gruber's attempt to break into our electro-locked safe and steal our stash of bearer-bonds... anything to keep John McClaine from stripping down to a beater and bare feet and shooting up our expensive utility infrastructure. Again.

So we're back, and happy to offer our tenth batch of approved sites. Enjoy with a vengeance.

  • Snopes Urban Legends
    From alligators in the sewers to... something starting with Z, Snopes is an excellent compendium of urban legends, both true and complete bullshit.
  • Bobby Neel Adams Age-Maps
    Bobby's come up with a neat idea-- splice photos of a person from different ages of their life to create one image. Not creepy at all, right? Better have a look.
  • Funky16Corners
    Larry Grogan has a superfly collection of obscure funk 45s from the late '60s and early '70s, and he's willing to share. He updates frequently, but only the most recent are available, so check often. What's that? What's a 45 you say?
  • Eat 2003
    On New Year's Eve 2002, Christopher Jennings decided on a whim to photograph everything he would eat in 2003. It's the kind of brilliantly simple idea that makes us call a meeting and threaten to fire the entire JEI staff if they don't start pitching better ideas.

Well done, all. Insania Fragilis, Fectum Dubitabilis!
