Women Make Movies

Since 1972, this non-profit feminist organization has been promoting the independent voices of women filmmakers from around the world. Their 2001 online catalogue includes descriptive entries for nearly 500 feature films, documentaries, videotapes, and shorts, with links to interviews and related materials. Among the new releases, we read about "Anna from Benin," the story of an African teen in France; "Don't Ask Why," depicting a young woman's coming of age in Pakistan; and "The Fourth Dimension," Trinh T. Minh-ha's dreamy, digital exploration of Japan. Now, if only we could also watch clips...


They're the coolest movie studio on the planet. Says who? Says us. And their web site ain't half bad, either. Featuring not only trailers and outtakes from their feature-length films ("Toy Story," "A Bug's Life" -- perhaps you've heard of them), the site also offers complete versions of six short subjects. Plus, you'll find a sneak peek of their latest short, "For the Birds," currently gracing theaters with the box-office-blitzing "Monsters Inc." Finally, if you've ever wanted to know what it takes to make a computer-animated feature film, check out the interviews with Pixar's artists, the "How We Make a Movie" slideshow, and the detailed dirt on the company's Renderman software. -- Yahoo review

Dream Catcher

Have you ever had a dream so intricate and intense you couldn't believe your own twisted mind? Have you jolted awake from a night of "mental gymnastics" and thought, What the...? Well, here's your chance to make a public spectacle of your most private thoughts. While there's a blog for just about every self-absorbed topic, this is one where self-absorption works. Why? Think of it's as fantasy quid pro quo -- collective unconscious therapy. You spill your intimate details while you crawl into the heads and dream journals of others. In the process, you'll find that other folks are just as whacked in the head as you. -- Yahoo review

Artists of Brucke

The design wizards at Second Story have done it again. This time they've teamed up with the New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) to bring us Artists of Brucke, an exquisitely detailed collection of German Expressionist prints that you'll only find on the Web. Combining introductory articles, brief narrations, and, of course, reproductions of more than 100 bold woodcuts and lithographs, the exhibition is powerful in both its content and construction. Investigate this early 20th-century movement in terms of eight different themes or the five individual artists represented. Add a chronology, a map, and suggested readings and you're immersed. -- Yahoo review

Aspects of the Victorian Book

The Industrial Revolution brought advances to many fields, not the least of which was literature. The British Museum's online exhibition about Victorian books explains how everything from mechanized printing presses, expanded railway lines, lower postage prices, and increased literacy all contributed to the publishing bonanza of 19th-century England. Melodramatic penny dreadfuls satisfied the public's desire for thrills and fantasy. Women's magazines became hugely popular, a trend that continues to this day. Even the field of children's books exploded with popular titles like Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island".


Picklebird focuses on promoting alternative art, the kind that is "unique, provocative, sometimes odd, but always damn good!" The creators of the site aim to open your eyes to art that might never be seen in museums or galleries, believing that the "outcast artists of today will be the modern masters in the future." The In the Life section offers advice on "How to Survive Art School," while the Spotlight area highlights ingenious art works like Simon Rodia's Watts Towers. The site's just launched, so pickings are a bit slim, but the promise of exciting "outsider, contemporary folk, pop, naive, lowbrow, visionary or intuitive art" has great potential.-- Yahoo review

Way of the Exploding Stick

Here's a kung fu action game you can play in your web browser. Colorful animated stick figures battle it out in a keystroke coordination challenge that's guaranteed to wile away solitary hours in front of the computer. Run, jump, jab, punch, and kick as you exercise hand-eye coordination and the dexterity of several fingers at once. You'll need the S, X, D, C, and V keys; four arrow keys are also essential. The animation design is appealingly simple -- think "Crouching Stickman, Hidden Drag-and-Drop" in the bold colors and crisp lines of Japanese woodblock prints. The key to success? Just lay off the noodles... -- Yahoo review
