 Editor's Notes





If your brain is longing for more than simply adrenalin, then you'll find it here! Since there is a life beyond skydiving [at least sometimes] we like to show you some great non-skydiving sites - kinda "food for the brain".

The (Unofficial) Crumb Museum

Sometimes art ain't pretty, folks. One definition of what qualifies a drawing as art, however, is its ability to accurately reflect the world the artist inhabits. Such is the case with Robert Crumb, one of the most talented comic artists of our time. Starting with his work at the seminal underground zine, Zap, through his work with album covers, rock 'n' roll posters, and later feature-length books, Crumb has given voice to the seedy, often-sexist, and over-the-top world of the 1960s and '70s.

This homespun tribute to the man profiled in the 1995 documentary "Crumb" presents a healthy dose of Crumb's artwork with few accompanying explanations to get in the way. The proprietor also does a good job of classifying the work into categories to provide ample warning for those not wanting see some of his racier work. Those caveats aside, this is a good spot to check out some of Crumb's more famous pieces if you're not familiar with his peculiar brand of genius.

Jean-Michel Basquiat lived a short, brilliant life. Single-handedly rejuvenating the New York art scene in the 1980s, with the help of Keith Haring, Basquiat (pronounced bahs-kee-aht) took his graffiti-based art to unimaginable heights. This site is an educational effort to help people understand and appreciate the man's genius. View some of his work, read his life story, and understand the reason why a major motion picture was made about the man a few years ago.


EggZone Magazine

We are sure that when you landed in their world, you're still wondering what the heck it is. The EggZone is a magazine that really serves no purpose whatsoever. Located somewhere between web reality and web monstrosity; the EggZone is your break from the commercialized, mind-warping seriousness that plagues the net today.

First distributed on paper in 1995, it was one of the first humorous e-zines published on the Web. At the top of the page is their menu broken down into "zones", and there is bound to be a "zone" of interest for everybody. It costs nothing to subscribe, and all it takes is an open mind and a willingness to take a break from reality.
