Ninjas on the ‘Net


[Image: Underground railroad map, via]

I don’t know about all you ninjas, but I’ve been pretty obsessed with these here politricks lately – and will be until the election. It’s like crack. I mean – McCain playing grab-ass? Palin in the Oval Office? Racist Republicans? Barrack doing stand up? Colin Powell endorsing Obama? Songs about Palin? Damn.

Also, speaking politricks – only about 91 days left for Bush in the White House!

Moving along – I don’t know how often I’ll do this, but I was thinking it could be cool to hook readers with something to listen to while perusing the links provided every Monday for Ninjas on the ‘Net [maybe we’ll tie this in with the music page somehow]. That said, check out Sun Ra’s Sleeping Beauty while you surf these here interwebs this week. And as always, if you have something you’d like to add, drop a link in the comments section – or toss us an email [architecture AT myninjaplease DOT com] and I’ll make sure it gets in next weeks post. Enjoy!
