Selling out

As you can notice to the right, I've included some links to under my Amazon Affiliates account. Anything purchased will go to pay for my bandwidth and/or hosting costs.

The first book I currently have listed is Motel of the Mysteries. This book is a hilarious satire of archaeology, with the protagonist doing an Egyptian-style archaeological dig of a tomb of very important people of Usa (i.e. the permanent residents of the Toot And Come-In Motel!). Motel of the Mysteries is a good tool for understanding that science "fact" is based a lot on the scientist's assumptions (something terribly useful for Creationist parents to share with their children).

The second is Dave MacKenzie's album Solo. Milady and I are great fans of the blues, and MacKenzie is one of the best guitarists I've heard in a long time. Plus, you just have to respect a fellow who will go to a festival and play a song with "I like great big figures when I'm looking at the bottom line" in a song named "Big Ol' Girls" ;).
