Jae Kamel uploads List updates to academia.edu, you should know that there is another place that our
updated Lists can be found, besides here.
Three Lists have been updated recently:
1. Julie Eclair’s Photolist – Philst8.
2. The Cold List – coldList4.
3. JKU – Part Deux – partdeux1.
Here they are, then:
Hello there. This is the, of course, most recent (January, 2014) version of the Photolist. Enjoy.
Julie Éclair’s Photolist
Note: Guaranteed Smut-free for your protection.
I. Fine Art Nudes.
V. Other Photography.
All other Art and Photography on other Lists.
A collection of sites hand-picked as representative samples of what’s available in each category.
HQ stands for “High Quality”, and for images, means that they are Hi-Res, clear, and (hopefully) free from any obvious marks including logos. For sites, HQ means that they are laid out clearly and simply. Others are as stated. Some of the FAN and Celebrity may contain sexuality, as apart and distinct altogether from porn and smut. Those are addressed below. Underscored URLs link directly from Word. Document (this edition) is Microsoft Word but may be used in Wordpad or Open Office. “SK” denotes use of “SexKey” for nude or partly nude section (i.e., verifies age). Many in the “nude” areas are merely swimsuits or paparazzi photos. DL means “Dead Link” and is usually followed by the date discovered broken.
Viewer Discretion is Advised.

This site was one of the oldest on the Web of its kind, and, one of the best back then; and it must have still been online when I first made this List. It is down now; but I have two replacements for it for you:http://fashionscansremastered.net/ }”Welcome To The Supermodel Lounge. Sit Back, Chill, and Enjoy the After-Hours.” These HQ scans have been featured on prominent sites such as The Daily Mail UK, Oh No They Didn’t, Models.com, Fashionista, and many other sites. …And the other one: http://www.hqscan.com/pics/farabe-cottingham/ }yes, HQ Scan is down, but they haven’t taken the storage files off of the server yet. That means that you can find rare, mostly celebrity images here; rare from being old (only 10 years or so but old in our culture), and rare from being minor celebs. I saw some names there I’d never heard of! Page listed is for Farabe Cottingham, for example, and more galleries are listed at the bottom of each page. Medium images, HQ, links all still work, images still on server. 2014 Update: site is down now. However, you can still download from the image cabinet, whatever images are still on the server, from here: https://web.archive.org/web/20110812061328/http://hqscan.com/pics/ }on archive.org. These are very large, HQ, clean images, before they’re gone.

III. Celebrities. Note: Web contains myriad celebrity sites, but only a few are HQ enough for you. Always beware of ads, which have content independent of the website. Always beware of links, which may go to porn sites. Warning: Most free nude celeb photos are on adult sites or sites that have porn ads. (!!) Some are pay-only sites.
http://abes-celebrities.com/ }has both celebrities and models, including some older photos. The older photos are not as HQ as the newer ones are, and aren’t as large. On this site few are actually nude, most in swimsuits, etc.
http://www.actressarchives.com/celebrities }many ads. HQ, many recent photos, midsize. News. Also here is http://www.actressarchives.com/photos }their photo page. They have a page for celeb/actress videos, but, there are so many celeb videos and video sites these days, that I’ll have to make a separate list for just those.
http://alicia-logic.com/capspages/dragonfly.asp }limited vidcaps. This site is unusual, it is a searchable vidcap database and collection, apparently all made by the same person. Has other collections, click on left-hand menu. Fun idiosyncratic collection. Extra: here http://alicia-logic.com/email/Bush%20or%20Alfred%20E.%20Neuman.gif }you can see Alfred E. Newman morphed in to George Bush.
http://www.all-nude-celebrities.net/ }scroll down for list; ignore ads. Use A-Z to access list. I’ve apologized before for the increase of porn ads on celeb photo sites. Sorry.
http://www.alphacelebs.com/ }blind links to large, HQ images! Many ads.
http://www.alwaysgirls.com/ }celebrity wallpaper site. Wallpapers of Men, too. Most images avail in 3 large sizes. The bad news: some of these wallpapers have double logos on them: a watermark-type logo, and the URL across the bottom.
http://www.photoman.artspb.com/brooke.php }this site has some excellent, large, classic HQ celebrity pics. Page linked to is Brooke Shields. Click on the icons at the bottom to view other galleries of the same celeb. Hint: since the buttons don’t say where your browser is going, cause the page to display full URL in place of the icon. Use the Thumbs app to see all the galleries at once. If Thumbs doesn’t work, list all the links on the page. In older style webpages, you’ll get all the images on one page. Recommended.
http://alltimetop.blogspot.com/2010/09/kim-basinger.html?zx=4b1bc7e0c77df77b }has actresses both new and old. Selection of classic actresses, some images small.
http://americangirljuliette.blogspot.com/2013/04/brooke-shields.html }another newer blog site, which has good pics of celebrities, classic older pics, and other unrelated galleries. Page linked to is her Brooke Shields photos, nice scans of some rare ones.
http://babeinvasion.com/Celebrities.html }celeb galleries and nude-caps. many ads, etc. Good links.
http://celebswnude.blogspot.com }newer celebrity image site. Simple, clean site except for the redirects to adfly. Medium size, HQ images, Recommended.
http://deedoolife.blogspot.com/2010/04/acidpop-du-people-dans-playboy-en-1984.html }another collection of scans of old celebs, mostly 1970s. Also has stories, video excerpts from TV series, etc. Fun site, clean, fast.
http://sexycute-girls.blogspot.com/ }newer site that has both celebs and models. Images vary by size and quality. Pretty good selection. Some images large and HQ.
http://thissymmetry.blogspot.com/2012_04_01_archive.html }City pics here, HQ images.
http://visualoptimism.blogspot.com/ }new(2014) fashion blogspot. Clean; large, HQ images; site is somewhat slow.
http://www.celebritycastle.com/index.html }clean. Many links, some to nudes. Sk. m-l sizes. An older site, easy to use, w/o any redirects, tricks, or dead links. The newer sites should be like this one. Recommended.
http://www.celebrityhotspot.com/ }scans + nude section. sk. small galleries, lrg pics. DL 2011. 2012 Update: Site is back up now.
http://www.celebrity-link.com/ }links to images, fan sites, bios, etc.
http://www.celebritynudeking.com/ }features celebrity movies; ignore & scroll down for list.
http://www.celebritypicturesarchive.com/ }scroll down; avoid many ads. 2012: Another older site that is dying. Sometimes the thumbs open to images that are smaller than they are! Some images are missing, etc. Soon to be DL.
http://www.celebritywizard.com/index.html }another clean site. 50847 photos, 639 celebrities. sk. Photos, bios, links, nudes in separate section (that’s what the “sk” means: Sex Key registration required, you prove your age with your credit card). All the “sk” sites on this List are therefore safe for teens, etc., and make parents happy.
http://celebritywonder.ugo.com/ }lists galleries in UGO network & related. Simple, seems free of redirects and porn ads. Large galleries, HQ images, easy navigation, medium sizes.
http://www.celebrity-link.com/ }more extensive lists of celebrities. 2012: Clago now redirects to Celebrity Link. Celebrity Link contains 25,080 celebrities and links to 38,208 sites. Big celeb portal.
http://www.celebritymixer.com/index.php?action=search }celebrity images, listed alphabetically by first name. The thumbnails are a little small, but all the links I tested led to images, mostly standard sized. Unfortunately, this site also mixes porn images so I cannot recommend it, sorry.
http://celebrityimg.com/ }mostly models and supermodels on this site, smaller images, some celebs, i.e., actors and actresses.
http://celebshqpics.blogspot.com }recently found celeb blog site. Variety of pics, most HQ some large to very large.

http://celebskin.com/videos/L/29 }more celebrity photos, links to some videos. Often links to pay-sites.
http://www.cybercelebs.net }long list of celebs, pages have links to many galleries, pics and vidcaps both, but all collectors, many ads, “Mr. skin” often, etc. Not all pics HQ.
http://www.celebritypicturesarchive.com/ }another new celebrity site..
http://www.csotd.com/archive.html }Celebrity Site Of The Day’s Archives.
http://www.dailygalleriesfree.com/free-celebs/a-z-celebs-list.php }alphabetical list of celebs and models. Most links lead to galleries, and there, some of the images (after you click on the thumbnails) are large and HQ. Avoid “adult” ads, etc. Sometimes, the links lead to linklists, but these lead to galleries; and those galleries have some images that are large and HQ. If you’re image hunting, you’ll find many sites like these, but google and the other engines never review and annotate these sites for you like I do. That is why it is better to start searching here and not with search engines.
http://www.digiscans.6x.to/ }scanner’s site: celebs, links to scans & CSV. Large images. HQ. 8/08: Goes to Pink Devils now; click “pictures aus dem web”; “tips & tricks”. DL (2/11)

http://www.fabuloushollywoodmemories.com/ }this site has a large collection of celeb photos, scans of originals (for sale) going back to the 1960s, and older. Recommended for older pics of celebs, vintage pics and scans.
http://www.famousbabes.com/ }oldest free celeb site. 2012: DL.
http://famousbase.com/ }perhaps a good replacement for famous babes, above. Site is fast and not too crowded with ads. Browser ad blocker recommended, as usual. Limited selection for each celeb, but, pics they have are HQ and large to very large. Recommended. Search by first name of celeb.
http://www.famousbeautiessite.com/celebs.php?akcia=name }blind links to many sites.
www.famousnetwork.com/ }good site but pics mixed with ads. DL 2012.
http://www.fdb.cz/dvd-obchod/dvd/navrat-do-modre-laguny/?foto=1 }a good Russian site with celebrity pics, medium-to-large, some HQ. Page shown is teen work of famous Russian actress and model, Milla Jovovich, from the Return To The Blue Lagoon movie. Born in the Ukraine, Milla had an acclaimed debut album, The Divine Comedy, as well.
http://foto-star.net/ }site has HQ, large celeb photos. Russian, so you may want to translate the page or site for easier use unless, of course, you can read Russian. Recommended.

http://www.goddessfreya.info/actresses.htm }example of an idiosyncratic site. This site seems to be, er, the “L” word, but the site is clean, works fast, no redirects. Small galleries but medium size images, some HQ, thumbnails and full-size both appear on same page, click on celeb’s name. Scroll down to bottom for search box and tags.
http://grokzone.com/gallery/index.html }a somewhat unknown celeb site, not on the usual lists. Actors, actresses, and models, more men than usual on celeb site. Also has musicians and athletes. A clean, easy-to-use site, somewhat older design. Scroll down for images after selecting celeb. Med size images, HQ, different selection than usual.
http://www.heavenlycelebrities.com }clean and HQ; images somewhat small. SK. Another older site that is simple, fast, no redirects.
http://www.hicelebs.com/ }speed galleries, HQ, but many ads. 2012: site seems dead.
http://www.hitagent.com/ranks/index.html }links for Bollywood and Indian celebs. 6 pages on 3/25/12. Recommended if you want pics or links for Indian celebs.
http://hotsexycelebritygossip.blogspot.com }has HQ pics, but small sizes.
http://www.hqscan.com/ }scans of Celebrities, HQ, large pics, limited selection. 2012: Once a good site for celeb and model scans, it seems to be dying now. The front page is still there but the galleries are 404 now.
http://www.icanscan.com/ }galleries, links to scanners; plus links to ‘sexy’ sites. DL 2011. Once a famous scanner site, gone now.
http://www.idolpleasures.com/index.shtml }clean site, old; HQ but sizes vary. sk. Another older site that is fast and simple. The newest celeb sites should take a lesson from Idol Pleasures. The newer sites are too greedy for money, far too many ads, pages too crowded, hard to read, hard to use. Garbage.
http://icelebstar.com/celebs/ }somewhat new site, lots of celebs listed. Has clips for each celeb, but not very many pic galleries.
http://connect.in.com/hollywood-actors.html }also has celebrity images. Sizes and quality vary.
http://www.ijustwanna.com/index.html }clean site, good linklist. SK. Somewhat older site, but clean, fast, and simple. The newer celeb sites today should start over and be more like I Just Wanna. Small galleries, but med-large images, some HQ. No redirects.

http://www.jsrpages.co.uk/sindex.htm }new link for JSR pages. (2/11).
http://www.listal.com/pictures }this is Listal, one of the newer sites. Has both model and celebrity images; also shows films or products related to the person, e.g., books they’re in, or have written, etc. So far, most images large and HQ, some very large. Recommended.
http://jodiefoster1980.narod.ru/photoalbum.html }celeb pics…this one is Jodie but there are others of the *.narod.ru type. There’s a place where you can view all the *.narod.ru sites, hundreds of pages of them, thousands of URLs.
http://www.moono.com/atoz/ }Moono is back! Galleries, easy navigation, thumbs open to medium images, which click-open to large-to-very large images, some HQ. Clean site, I found no porn ads or links on it. Also has celeb news and links.

http://www.music-juice.com/gallery2/main.php?g2_page=5 }another site w/ images of celebs both old and new. Images medium size, HQ. Allows galleries to be searched.
http://www.nude-celebs-center.com/ }most aren’t nude; some “celeb gallery” links are misleading. Scroll down and avoid ads. Some adult content. Viewer discretion is advised. I don’t like all the porn ads that have been taking over these celebrity photo sites over the years, my apologies.
http://www.nude-female-celebrities.com/nude-pictures/ }another site that might not seem worth it, but, they have some older or rare photos in their galleries. Also some celebs not in the newer sites. Pictures, med. Quality, med. size, and they have a video gallery as well. For the annoying porn ads, I repeat this advice: get an ad-blocker. I use the Ghostery, which Jae and Jone suggested to me. They also suggested Jesse’s Bookmarklets, which allows me to “zap” a lot of that annoying stuff away. With all that gone, the site is much more friendly.
http://www.oocities.org/the_fanatik/links.html }an old celebrity scan site with links.
http://www.oocities.org/the_fanatik/links.html }fanatiks’ celebrity vidcaps’ links page.
http://pennylifeinpics.blogspot.com/ }mostly models but has celebrities too. This site may load slowly. Works best on new computers, new browsers; loads up the browser; but the images are large to very large, new, and HQ. Click open image in new tab/window. Big site with hundreds of models’ galleries.
http://www.perfectpeople.net/ }more celeb images and links.
http://picturecentral.wordpress.com }a newer celeb (and model) photo site. In their archives, some of the images links are already broken.
http://www.starsfond.ru/ }a Russian collectors’ site with celeb images, including some older ones that are harder to find these days. Alphabetical by first name. Includes some models and fashion models as well. Here is http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.starsfond.ru%2F }an English translation of their front page.
http://www.stars2go.com }clean galleries, large photos, some HQ. 7/08: site seems down. 2012 DL.
http://www.stardeon.net/ }portal and link list for several celebrity sites. As with all older sites, there my be some DLs. Since the site in mixed English and German, here is: http://www.stardeon.net/starlinks.htm }the celeb portal and galleries page.
http://www.starschannel.de/schauspielerinnen.htm }sometimes these pages are in German, sometimes English, and sometimes mixed. Good linklist of celebs’ own sites, these are harder to find.

http://www.stars-tv-nues.com/index.php }French celebrity images site. Some are large and HQ. Recommended.
http://www.stylelist.com/ }newer site, clean, portal for articles and sites about fashion. Emphasis is somewhat on celebrity, plus current fashions. Medium size images, easy to use, and fewer ads than many other sites. Recommended.
http://www.superstarlinks.de/schauspielerinnen/ }large HQ pics, many ads, links. 7/08: site has changed. Photos in list no longer link. Links at right of page still good, use these. Asks for joining. Page may be auf Deutsch.
http://www.terababes.com/ }115000 mostly HQ images, grouped from largest to smallest. Scroll down for Links; click “more links” for more, gives a long list but these sites are difficult to work with and many are useless; some are paparazzi pics of celebs: ignore ads there. SK
http://www.thecelebritycity.com/vbcc/ }registration and login required. Good blog images.
http://the-feeding-tube.com/ }site has large, HQ photos of celebs, candids and paparazzi, but, page is full of porn ads. Recommended: a good ad-blocker. I use Ghostery, which Jae and Jone suggested to me. Also, you can get rid of most of the other stuff with Jesse’s Bookmarklets, leaving only the celeb photos you want.
http://cool-and-beauty.thepop.com/page/29/ }this site also has celeb images. Page shown has rare child photos of Milla Jovovich. Milla also started work as a model and actress in childhood and her teen years, respectively, but is not as well known as famous celebs like Brooke Shields or Jodie Foster; both of them started working as children, in modeling and acting. HQ pics, recommended. However, it is difficult to navigate the site. Use an engine that does site searches, such as Ixquick or even google, to find what you’re looking for. Or, you can browse the site by changing the page number in the address bar.
http://www.thespiannet.com/index.shtml ]actor’s site, has small but HQ images organized by the movies they were in, etc. Clean, simple, fast. Also has audition notices but these seem dated (recent=2010).
http://www.topmodelky.com/ }an older celeb photo site. Has links, site appears to be in Hungarian. Some of the links for the images are broken or dead, but, the images that are still there may be hard to find elsewhere.

http://uncoveredcelebrities.com/ }this site sometimes has pics, vidcaps, and videos of various celebs, which you don’t see on other websites.
http://unmistakables.com/ }clean, mostly HQ but small-to=medium images. Limited selection. 240 celebs.
http://www.veoxxx.com/ }has also some older celebrity pics; searches other sites and compiles. Click ‘search by relevance’ and enter actor’s name. 2012 update: site seems to mostly have porn galleries now, but, I have found some image and movie links for some celebrities using their search.
http://www.vngallery.org/2008/01/alessandra-ambrosio-9.html }very large, HQ images of supermodels and celebs.

http://www.blekko.com }I’m including Blekko here since it’s image search is as good as some of the others. Results format similar to google’s. Select images from the menu or learn to use their “slashtags”. Jae Kamel has pointed out to me, that this is a bad term and perpetuates a mistake: “slash” started life as a slang term for the symbol “/”, which is a slant, virgule, solidus, or oblique solidus. From the beginning of PCs, computer people have preferred slang to correct English, probably to hide their lack of knowledge of it. The word caught on, and now a generation of kids has grown up using the wrong term, slash instead of slant, and therefore thinking it was correct. Sadly, it still is not the correct term. Jae went on to say, that when there’s a choice between the two, “\” is called left-slant, and “/” right slant, for reasons obvious enough that a child can see. Neither one is either forward or backward, obviously.
http://pixolution.does-it.net/index.php?id=2 }pixolution has two product demonstrations here. The first one is a little boring. The second one, displayed the images (250 – selectable) that the terms described, but, their “find similar images” option didn’t work at all.

DL (2/11). 22dec12 Update: http://www.hotlib.com/30385/download-where-is-it-.html }this app, Where Is It?, is the best program for scan collection mgmt, that I have found. This version is shareware, I was unable to find the free version of it today. The next best version, is Picasa. I don’t recommend picasa since it is from google, and since it is a bigger file, and bigger to run. I think you’ll like my recommended choice, but it is only free for 14 days. I tried to find the free version (I had it once) but was unable to.
http://www.getpaint.net/ }this is our other main image app. PaintDotNet has many features that are improved versions of what you would find on MSPaint, the windows bundled app that it was made to replace; but it also has features like those in Pro image processors. One of the best freeware image apps, I use it in conjunction with IrfanView. Highly Recommended. If you have an older OS, you might need to download some .NET framework updates from microsloth.

http://www.imaging-resource.com/ }this site has reviews of digital cameras and equipment, and is current. 18jun13. They say, “we’ve grown to become one of the largest photo news and review sites on the web. In our pages, you’ll find in-depth reviews backed by exhaustive lab tests, as well as extensive coverage of photo news.” The site is thorough, and Highly Recommended if you’re looking for digital camera equipment, descriptions, news, reviews.
http://imgops.com/saucenao.com/userdata/tmp/rMltJS2Zm.jpg }with this page, you can apply a variety of photographic tools, to any image, in the browser. Complete and interesting set of links and tools on this page. Recommended.
http://imgops.com/static.gedankenacker.de:8080/fashionography/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Emily-Didonato-by-Dan-Martensen-for-Double-Magazine-4.jpg }arrived at ImgOps from a different website, and got different pages than the link above this one. Really, a lot of useful image tools, etc., all on one page. Highly Recommended. The site is well done, easy to read and use. These tools are grouped together like this page, nowhere else on the Web.
http://www.incogna.com }the major image search engines on the web today don’t even look at the content of their images, they’ve made themselves in text processing, so they only look at each image’s text meta-data. At Incogna, we’re trying a different approach. By using highly parallel processors, we process the shape in every image and use this to build a large scale searchable visual index. With typical desktop processors, this scale of processing is not computationally feasible. But by exploiting processor parallelism to an unprecedented degree, Incogna’s image search technology lets you explore visual data in a whole new way.
http://karmadecay.com/ }a new reverse-image search. Search by image or URL. Since the downfall of Cydral, and since reverse-image search apps, extensions, and plug-ins don’t obtain results from Yandex or Baidu, this site is a pleasure to see. Really, Tineye and google are about the only general reverse-image search engines left (2jun13). Other reverse-image search, e.g., extensions or plugins, will search specialized sites, etc., and one connects to Jeffrey’s Exif Data, also on this page. Karma Decay, this one, searches Reddit, and is the only one that does. It did fair in our tests, but no better; but has very useful links and such when it can’t find an image, etc., so I am Recommending it for those reasons.
http://labs.ideeinc.com/upload/ }another type of reverse image search, based on color palette similarity rather than exact match. I did a test, and it did well on the b & w image, but then failed to respond to the uploaded color image, showing only the ‘spinning wheel’. They need to keep working on this one.
http://www.image-scene.de/ }German site for all photography products, plus info, links, etc. Easy to read and use, recommended.
http://www.image-service.de/ }Online photo print services. Recommended. “Sorted by price for a 10x15cm photo print format. Here you will find photo services via the Internet exposure of your digital photos. To make an order or pattern according to the name order, please click on the appropriate link in the table header. The price for the ‘model contract’ is made up of 20 photographic prints 10x15cm plus the basic fee plus shipping charges. Clicking on the vendor name will take you to their homepage.”
http://www.imgfsr.com/ifsr_resamp.html }contrasting image resampling methods.
http://instagram.com/# }the Instagram site. We are interested mainly in the photos from the iphone camera, since “You will find some of the most amazing photographs you have ever seen on Instagram. The tools we now have allow almost anyone with a decent eye to take beautiful, crisp shots. That’s not to say you won’t find the everyday and mundane on Instagram, because you will. But as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. All the more important to be careful who you follow on Instagram, because its all about who’s in your feed ~ what do you find interesting? Some people take shots of nothing but weddings, or landscapes, or horses. Determine what is is you want to look at, or look at whatever strikes your fancy. “ I hope they’re right.
http://www.irfanview.com/ }This is, of course, IrfanView. This is highly recommended not only as an image app, but also for playing or showing files in various formats for which you many not have a player, or for when you want a faster app. Example: you’re on windows and have no QuickTime and no apple player; Iview has a built-in apple QuickTime player. Since it is simple, fast, straightforward, and easy on the eyes, this is a very good everyday workhorse, Highly Recommended. See also Universal Viewer and Imagine.
http://www.jiscdigitalmedia.ac.uk/stillimages/advice/review-of-image-search-engines/#metasearching }JISC Digital Imaging, review of image search engines, including metasearches and metacrawlers. A rather long document, and not all that recent, but, here it is if you want to see the engines they found and their descriptions of them. Their section of meta-searching and ‘springboard’ searching was interesting. However, avoid “Search 22” since it leads to DLs and few results, except for, e.g., Picsearch. That is, the ‘springboard’ portals are just forwarding your search terms to other engines, and most of the ones here don’t work, or are DLs.
http://hitmaninc.lindesign.se }IRC/CSV tutorials. DL (2/11). 2012 Replacement link:
http://tutorials.downloadroute.com/IRC-JoHeR.html }more IRC tutorials. For those who don’t know, images can be sent and received via IRC, chatrooms, and the like. That’s why these sites are included here. Such images are often in CSV format. They can be sent quickly, and w/o using the Web. Such images are small and large volumes of them can be sent all at once.
http://usa.shop.lomography.com/ }site with many different kinds of photography products: cameras, films, everything. Site clean and easy to use, recommended. Many European and Russian cameras, etc., not usually found in U.S. sites and stores.
http://logicnet.dk/Analyzer/ }One of my newer applications is the Image Analyser 1.34. This is one of the best freeware image apps on the Web. So, I use three apps for all my image processing now: this Analyzer, IrfanView, and PaintDotNet. Recommended.
http://www.uvviewsoft.com/freepro.htm }recently I have added this to my list of image apps. It can be useful as a “backup” for other programs, such as IrfanView. Backups Free File Viewer, and Total Commander; in abilities, Universal Viewer is like at half-way between those two. Recommended; and the Viewer uses the same plugins as the Lister in Total Commander. See also Online Tools : http://sdrv.ms/wkep6I . BTW, it is recommended that you download and use the plug-ins for both TC and this Universal Viewer. 2014 Update: this Universal Viewer will open and show literally any kind of file, with very few limits. It can be used as a web browser! Also opens and shows MHTML, HTM, etc., similar formats. For just images, it is no better than Imagine, and not quite as useful as IrfanView. Recommended.
http://viral.image.ntua.gr/?query&id=q14545.jpg }this engine matches your photo (URL or upload) of any city, with similar from their large database. In my tests, it failed the first two, but then worked very well, indeed, in the third test, the page linked to above. Look carefully, and you’ll see that it identified the building on the right in the photo, then (a) returned several photos of that same building, but from different angles, (b) showed which city it’s in, and then (c) showed which street corner(s) in New York the building could be seen (photographed) from. Very impressive, and Highly Recommended for that. However, it also failed the next several tests, including images of cities that it should have been able to easily match. Use this page: http://viral.image.ntua.gr/?upload }to match a photo from a file or URL.
http://www.oocities.org/the_fanatik/vidcap_tips.html#step_2 }vidcap tutorial.
http://paint.net/ }free download of what started as the improved version of mspaint. PaintDotNet is a major improvement over mspaint which, for example, degrades the photo or picture quality when you use it; PaintDotNet does not. This is a mid-level app, perfect for those that don’t need the overkill complications of Photoshop or Gimp.
http://www.nyam.pe.kr/ }homepage for Imagine image viewer. This viewer is fast, simple, small, and easy to use, and that makes it Highly Recommended by me. If you have trouble downloading from this location (I didn’t) let me know, and I can find another good download location for you. Note too that there is a Total Commander plug-in for this, that is, the Imagine viewer will operate from within TC, and can be set as its default image viewer, or alternative. Use the plug-in helper with the TC if you decide to use it. I use it there, and by itself as another tool alongside my Main Three image editors.

http://www.picstopin.com/ }an interesting photo collection. Page shown is UFO photos, if it opens to the same page when you visit the site (today is 1apr13, and not an april fool’s joke). This site also has large HQ pics of supermodels, celebrities, and so much more. Very good pic quality, but, it is very hard to find what you want using the site. It has a search bar and category selection, but, to find celebs or models by name I had to use a site search. Now, good engines like Ixquick or even google will do site searches, but, we found our result immediately with Ant (http://www.ant.com/ ). Best way to use Ant: go to the site, then click the little molecule symbol on your Ant toolbar. A page with info about the site appears, and you can search the site from there.
http://www.pixlr.com/editor/ }online photo editor and graphics tool. It is simple, and runs in your browser. It isn’t as HQ as the computer-run apps, and works to a lesser degree of refinement and accuracy. But it is free and has all the tools you’ll want, so, I still Recommended for a browser image editor.
http://www.pixolu.de/ }this is another visual search engine. Pixolu starts with your descriptors (or use keywords or tags) in your natural language, and then you pick one and it matches the image using its algorithms. We like the color and style of the webpage, and the app & servers were fast. Drag more images to that window, and it will try to match the characteristics of your selected images. I tested using 1 to 4 images, and the program worked well. Recommended. Click on the eye icon on the image, and a page open with the image’s source in a new tab.
http://www.pixolution.de/index.php?id=18 }free image sorter from Pixolu, download from this page. Since this is the beta-version, the entire right-side panel doesn’t’ work, that is, all the “find similar” and image matching parts. So, the “image search” feature was disappointing, and that made the whole app disappointing. However, it was sometimes fun and easy to use, high-res, and did sorts very quickly, including the “sort by color”. Recommended but only as a beta-version. “ImageSorter is a demonstration software, showing the potential of our visual technologies. ImageSorter is not intended to be a substitute to other imaging software but a completion.”
http://pixsta.com/ } “Pixsta has created advanced visual search and browse technology that enables online customers to search products by appearance alone.

http://www.pokki.com/download/?name=Pokki&etag=Pokki_Pokki }the download link for Pokki. They say “Pokki is compromised of two components: the Pokki Menu and the App Store. The Pokki menu adds start menu functionality (especially useful for Windows 8!) to your desktop and enables easy navigation to your favorite applications. The App Store contains tons of great apps with one-click installs to have instant access to your favorite programs and games!“ This is here, since it is where I downloaded the free instagram apps from.
http://www.prismaticsoftware.com/dupdetector/dupdetector.html }I use this Dup Detector. It is Ok for freeware, but is a little confusing, and I had to do awkward things to make it work correctly, i.e., find duplicates in the folder I specified, then show them to me. However, it is the best of its kind in freeware; and I did a pretty extensive search before finding this one. So, I’d have to Recommend it. 2014 Update: Since that was written, I ‘ve found another freeware duplicate detector, and a third one which didn’t work for me. IMHO none of the freeware duplicate image detectors work the way you’d want and expect.
http://regex.info/exif.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsaucenao.com%2Fuserdata%2Ftmp%2FrMltJS2Zm.jpg }this page is called by a reverse image search extension for Firefox, and uses Jeffrey’s EXIF tool, below. It provides a quick way to get technical data on an image, from your context menu. Recommended; and the Firefox extension is Highly Recommended. It is called Image Search Options, from http://saucenao.com/ . Best to download it from the FF add-ons page. Of course, you should be using Mozilla Firefox, and not any other browser. Why? Write to me and ask, via Jone Dae: email@example.com. And note: it seems that you can only get to this tool from the extension. If you go to www.regex.info , you can’t get to the EXIF tool from there.
http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/ }here is jeffrey’s EXIF tool. It is the only tool I’ve ever found, that works for more file-types, and gives more EXIF data and options, than IrfanView. This is a very good tool, Recommended; and for me, it just emphasizes how amazing IrfanView is, which so many image and media tools all in one lightweight, fast program.
http://saucenao.com/tools/ }here is a good set of image tools, see above. You can download their Image Search Options from here. Recommended.

http://thepluginsite.com/download883567485/index.htm }several collections of freeware plugins for photographers and graphic artists. Site clean, and easy to use. I use the plugin commander light, here: http://thepluginsite.com/products/picopro/index.htm }however, its use is somewhat confusing. The site says “Using plugins, tubes or other add-ons in a graphics, video or animation application can be a frustrating experience. As your effect collection grows your application needs longer to start up and your menus and lists become cluttered making it very difficult to find the particular effect you are looking for.” They should have also said, how and why do you convert the plugins to various formats, etc. I got the app to make sure that Irfanview and Total Commander had all their plugins available to them. Irfanview has its own plug-in installers downloadable from their site, but the TC plugins are still, not obvious. It is difficult to tell which ones are installed and working, and which are not. Nevertheless PiCo Light is the best freeware app of its kind.
http://labs.systemone.at/retrievr/about }the ‘about’ page for Retrievr, and they say there: “retrievr is an experimental service which lets you search and explore in a selection of Flickr images by drawing a rough sketch. One thing to keep in mind is that retrievr doesn’t do object/face/text recognition of any kind, so if you’re drawing an outline sketch of a chair, it almost certainly won’t get you one back (except your index only contains images of chairs). It helps to think of it as matching the most pronounced shapes and slabs of colors. Personally, I see retrievr more as an “exploration” tool than as a “search” tool, and it seems to work very well for that. “ This engine is trying to find similar images, but not like the content-based algorithms you’re familiar with, for example, by the colors, saturation, brightness, etc. So, what does it retrieve? An imgae with similar shapes, colors, and maybe proportional areas. In my tests, it tried to use the colors and patterns in the original image, in selecting similar images. Otherwise, simple and easy to use, clean page, Recommended for image research.
http://www.tineye.com/ }reverse image search; does work. Sometimes it doesn’t find images that are on the Web, though; that’s why I’ve made this List and others like it (unreleased/unpublished). I can find any image for you if it exists on the Web, usually without using google at all. Tineye also sometimes has trouble with its servers, their down or report ‘bad data’ for ordinary images submitted. It may have trouble with bitmap images.
http://www.webfetch.com/ }yes, most of the “new” image search engines are no good. Cydral, for example, is already down, I never even got a chance to test it. But this new one, Webfetch, is different. And even though it is from Infospace, I found that it did better than Dogpile in our tests, and all the other Infospace products are similar to Dogpile. Webfetch has features that none of the Infospace products have, for image searches; Recommended. 2014 Update: redirects to Zoo, which search engine I found unnecessary. What’s it for? See also Dr. Jone Dae’s answer to that question at http://sdrv.ms/x8nu4J .
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CBIR }be sure to read this long article on content based image retrieval (CBIR). We’ve found a few dead links, and several commercial, pay sites for this, such as piXserve, but nothing that good. Perhaps you can find something for this List, on that Wikipedia page.

http://script.yourdada.com/page/irc-bot-tutorial.html }links to IRC and chatroom bots and tutorials.
http://www.zeropaid.com/gimp/ } GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a big program, bigger and fancier than PaintDotNet, and match for Adobe. Some use and like Gimp better; for my images, I use a combination of Irfanview, PaintDotNet, and Analyzer. They have complementary capabilities, and I get very good results using them together. But some photographers swear by Gimp.

This is how many images you can upload at one time.

Not recommended.
http://picturesearch.imense.com/ }the immense picture search. I tested it with descriptions of the type of people, and it returned good results, many of them, and quickly. Only flaw, it tended to return mostly portraits and headshots, not showing the full figure in many. I didn’t find the advanced search useful, but you might. When I gave it a harder test, it still returned 303 images. Recommended. Note: it will return no adult-rated images unless you specify them. The “similar results” feature works well.

http://ookaboo.com/o/pictures/ }this one has millions of free images, categorized, and is easy to read and use. Drawbacks: only a few images per page, and all images are limited to those they consider “suitable for a K-12 audience”.

I feel that people everywhere, but especially in the still juvenile U.S., should, if they are adults, grow-up and try to act like adults. But also, they should quit ruining their childrens’ intuition, innocence, and trust, with illogical and absurd notions about nudity, art, and photography, and quit ruining them with their, the adults’, shame and guilt feelings, about nudity, art, photography, and the human figure.

1. Q: Are there any other FAN sites you’d recommend?
A: Basically, no. The list above is fairly well updated now (2/11).
2. Q. Any other celeb sites?
A: Again, not really. The Celeb List too has been recently updated. (5/11)
A: (March update): Actually, there are some galleries online that you could look at if you wanted to; here are the URLs, categorized:
(2013 update: under construction.)
-I’ll keep you posted if I find any more of these.
3. Q: What if my app, such as Word or WordPad, won’t link directly to the site?
A: Select the address only, the colored ink part to the left of the curly brace, copy it, and paste it into the address bar of your browser, and then press enter. Then you’re done. Note: if this doesn’t work, please e-mail the “Dead Link” to me right away so that I can delete it from this List. If you receive this list by e-mail, you can also link directly from your e-mail copy of it to the link.
4. Q: I’m looking for a “backdoor” site that will go directly to galleries and sample pages for the various popular pay- and free-sites. Can you recommend one?
A: There are a few left for JPEGs, I recommend http://www.purescans.com/bng/ . But, Warning, some images may link to Porn sites. Choose carefully. Use images at upper part of page only. Using a sex-key may also lead to hidden galleries. But these things can usually be found on the right side of a blog-site. Also, purescans has gone down in quality over the years. Also, the new “IV. Tools” category above may be of help to you.
5. Q: Any other changes?
A: Well, yes, there are several. The notable sites and links that have gone down are noted above. However, the use of blogsites for posting scans and collections has increased 10-fold or more in just that past few years. Remember, some of the info above, including some of the sites, date back to the 1990s. In years, that’s not very far away, less than one generation; but in computer/communications technology years, the 1990s are now very far away. I say, the appearance of NTFS was the herald that signaled the big, big changes everywhere that followed. Some of the images in collections on older sites, are still jpegs from the 1990s or even earlier. I’ve seen online images from as long ago as the 1970s; and no jokes please. They did have images back in the 70s, including on their computers.
6. Q: I noticed above that you referred to your Main Three image processing tools.
Which are they?
A: They are, IrfanView with all the plug-ins, PaintDotNet with some of the plug-ins,
Michael Vinther’s Image Analyzer, also with all of the plug-ins. Michael Vinther
has also written a few plugins for the PaintDotNet. Note: running Image Analyzer
or Irfanview with all the plug-ins will not slow them down, but it does slow
down Paint.Net, so, pick and choose just the ones you want. Of course, the folders
for them will increase in size.
7. Q: I saw above that you have tested other image tools and Recommend a few. Which
A: Since I already did review them all above, I don’t want to repeat all that here.
However, I do sometimes use both the Imagine image tool, and the Picasa3 app,
as well. See also the notes for Pixlr and Pixolution above. Since you’ll ask, I again
don’t use Photoshop or any other Adobe products if I can, and for very good
reasons. Gimp was also too large and complicated for my needs. I like small, fast,
simple and easy-to-use apps, and just don’t have the time for vastly complicated
monsters like Photoshop that have features I’d never use in 3 lifetimes, let alone
just this one. I also avoid all Google apps and products whenever I can. Picasa3 was
an exception, since it has some useful features the other apps don’t, and, 2 features
that none of the other apps have, (1) the facebook uploader, and (2) the collage
maker. It makes collages somewhat crudely and doesn’t give you enough choices,
seems like a beta-version sometimes, but it is the best free collage maker I’ve found.
8. Q: Do you have a rèsumé ?
A: Yes of course, but that’s not necessary here. You know that I do all the image and
graphics work, and most of the A/V work, for Jae Kamel and Jone Dae, the creators
of JKU (Jae Kamel’s URLs); and I still work IRL for my other clients as well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XV6-34UYEJo#! }A European Investment Bank (EIB) that would cease lending to coal projects and eventually all fossil fuels is still a dream. However we imagined it for one day and the effects would be tremendous. The EIB could play a leading role in decarbonising Europe’s energy infrastructure, it would be applauded by EU citizens and receive rewards from organisations like ours. That’s what we wanted to show with our day of action during the Bank’s annual press conference. All we call for is EU public bank that acts with the future in mind by taking the EU 2050 decarbonisation targets into account. Let’s hope it will when it reviews its energy policy later on this year. 3:14.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfPjoiAKvcc&feature=youtu.be }After a fake press release in which the EIB ‘announced’ its divestment from coal, activists stroke again the next day during the Bank’s annual press conference. In name of EU citizens, President Werner Hoyer received the 2013 ‘World Coal Down’ award. Unfortunately he had to enfeeble the rumours of the EIB’s coal divestment, saying it was “complete nonsense”.

FAQs (of this Cold List)
1. Q: What do those crazy art sites have to do with freedom?
2. Q: Do you have any audio-only by the Plastiscines?
A: Sure. See “Music”, above.
3. Q: Is spiritual sex the same as Tantra?
A: Not really.
4. Q: If I’m consciously in love with my sexual partner, is that Tantra?
A: Not necessarily.
5. Q: So, what is Tantra?
A: Compare en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tantra }Their pretty-good article.
6. Q: Then what is Tantric Sex?
A: The point is that most of the Website authors who talk about Tantric sex are
“newbies” and, well, “uninformed” for lack of a better term. Hint: they talk too
much about it, and talk like they just discovered it yesterday. Still, though, you
can look at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tantra#Sexual_rites if you like. 7. Q: Why have you done a Sex List?
A: Because we have already done all the other interesting Lists; this is the end.
8. Q: Where did JKU Review go?
A: It is now a separate document, the JKUIndex2012.
9. Q:Why are so many of the links to music and videos dead now?
A: Since they were originally collected in January, 2009. Links expire without warning.
10. Q: Why are there sex videos on this list?
A: (Mr. Kamel) We always have videos on our lists, except for the research lists.
A: (Dr. Dae) Since there are only two categories on this List, Freedom and Sex. We have freedom videos on there too, just look for them.
11. Q: What is “graff”?
A: “Graff” is, of course, the short and commonplace form of the word “graffiti”.
12. Q: We enjoyed watching some of the sex-videos. They go well with the Sex Category, and with the URLs there. Do you have any more like those we saw, or different ones?
A: Yes, we have more of them for you to view, if you like. We’ll send the complete
list of them to your e-mail address. Enjoy.
13. Q: So, why did you move the sex videos to a separate list?
A: For the convenience of you, our dear fans and readers. This List still has the sensual videos, and the Freedom videos as well; and you can have the sex videos by special request, if you like, or find that list here: http://sdrv.ms/1a44985 . Remember, these are just links to the videos, not the videos themselves.
14. Q: I noticed above, that we would contact you to obtain the sex videos. I’m into sex videos, and would like those links again? What is your contact info?

https://archive.org/details/InternationalFolkDances }This is a collection of music for folk dancing that has long been out of print. Most of it consists of 78RPM transcriptions. Many of the vinyl recordings are actually transcribed from older 78s. From the soulful Macedonian, happy-happy Croatian, to the furious Russian-Ukranian melodies this music makes wonderful listening, but most importantly it demands to be danced. The 78RPM recordings often have a vigor and life unsurpassed by modern recordings. This is because they could not edit them, and so they had to record them in a complete take. This helped give the music an edge because the musicians were under pressure similat to that in a live performance.

http://www.streetswing.com/histmain/z3moris.htm }The Morris dance (Tripudium Mauritanicum) was the most frequently mentioned of all the dances of the fifteenth century. In Renaissance writings it is almost always mentioned that a Mouresca, Morisque or Moresque (Arab Lambra,) or Morisco was danced and was said to be brought to England from Spain by John of Gaunt (1340-1389) brother of Edward, ‘the Black Prince’ during the reign of his father, Edward III (1312-1377) around 1360 AD. In the beginning, the Morris dance was a pantomime of war, depicting the struggle of the Moors and Christianity and is one of the oldest English dances to date. However, it’s origin is not considered strictly English, but the modern version is.

http://www.humankindness.org/ } HKF’s Prison-Ashram Project sends free books to inmates all over the world. Books are about interfaith spirituality, and most of our materials were written by the late Bo Lozoff. The Human Kindness Foundation, founded by Bo and Sita Lozoff, is a non-profit organization which stresses a way of life based upon three common principles taught by the great sages of all religions: Simple living, a dedication to service, and a commitment to personal spiritual practice. See FAQs below.
http://www.humankindness.org/prison-ashram-project/ } The primary purpose of the Prison-Ashram Project is to inspire and encourage prisoners and prison staff to recognize their depth as human beings, and to behave accordingly. Our inmost nature is divine. The nature of our lives is an incomprehensibly wonderful mystery which each human being can experience for themselves. Prisoners have the opportunity to dedicate themselves to this inward journey without the distractions and luxuries which occupy many people in the “free world.” Yes, Bo Lozoff was in prison, too.
http://humankindness.bigcartel.com/product/we-re-all-doing-time }Bo Lozoff’s most famous book. You will find this book in jails and prisons, if you live in them for a while. “”This practical manual will inspire everyone who is as concerned with helping others as with their own personal improvement.” — from the Foreword by His Holiness, The Dalai Lama. Bo Lozoff’s first book, WE’RE ALL DOING TIME has met with phenomenal acclaim around the world since its first printing in 1985. Few books have crossed religious, ethnic, cultural and economic lines with such a clear and simple, immediately useful expression of ageless spiritual truths. The English-language edition is now in its eighteenth printing. “

http://insightprisonproject.org/ }why is this on the peaceniks List? Well, the path of peace means helping parolees to move back into Society, and helping inmates and prisoners to prepare to. There is still huge stigma attached to serving out one’s debt to society, and people come out with no homes, no jobs, no family, and no friends. So… this project helps them to get back into society, and not to go back in to prison (that’s what they call recidivism). Highly Recommended. “Insight Prison Project transforms the lives of those impacted by incarceration through programs designed to develop behavior inspired by insight, accountability and compassion.”

Based in Geneva, Switzerland, it employs some 12,000 people in 80 countries; it is financed mainly by voluntary donations from governments and from national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies.

As a non-profit organization, we have developed a unique mental training program consisting of mindfulness meditation and emotional intelligence exercises designed to strengthen youth’s minds, relieve their toxic stress, and build their ability to make better decisions.” Recommended, especially if you’re a parolee or criminal.

http://www.mbaproject.org/about-us/history-2/ }The Mind Body Awareness Project was founded in June of 2000 by Noah Levine and a group of his close friends. n 2006, the MBA Project merged with its sister non-profit, Youth Horizons, founded by Andrew Getz and Soren Gordhammer (who later moved to NYC and founded the Lineage Project there). In 2007 MBA merged with Vision Youthz, founded by Dr. Kyra Bobinet. Vision Youthz was largely an aftercare program, providing continuity-of-care to youth in San Francisco post-release.

http://www.prisondharmanetwork.net/ }more of you peaceniks and religious types should take this effort seriously. Seriously. There are over 1,000,000 men and women behind bars in the U.S., and helping them, showing them as much mercy and comfort as possible is The Right Thing To Do. Remember, we as society made them criminals, no one else. We make our country what it is, no one else. Take responsibility for yourselves.
http://www.prisondharmanetwork.org/ }this is now the Prison Mindfulness. All of you many Churches, Synagogues, and Meditators, should find ways to bring comfort and help to prisoners, parolees, inmates, and their families!

http://prisonmindfulness.org/ }Fleet Maul founded this. In 1985, Fleet Maull was incarcerated on drug charges. Prior to his incarceration, Fleet received extensive training as a meditation instructor under the guidance of Tibetan meditation master Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Shortly after arriving at the federal medical center, he started a Buddhist meditation group in the prison chapel which he led for 14 years, training hundreds of prisoners in contemplative spirituality and the practice of mindfulness-awareness meditation. In the early 1980s, Buddhist prison ministry was all but nonexistent. Many Buddhist centers were beginning to receive letters of interest from prisons, and a number of these centers began forwarding these letters to Fleet. He quickly realized the he couldn’t begin to keep up with the growing demand for Buddhist prisoner support that was coming his way, and in 1989 founded Prison Dharma Network (PDN), a national nonprofit, nonsectarian support network for Buddhist prisoners, volunteers and prison staff.

http://www.ru.org/society/turning-prisons-into-ashrams.html }Bo Lozoff and his wife Sita are the directors of the Human Kindness Foundation which administers the Prison Ashram Project. They give workshops at prisons in the United States and throughout the world in which they encourage prisoners to use their time behind bars to grow mentally and spiritually. During their workshops they lead exercises in yoga, meditation and prayer. In addition, they maintain an extensive correspondence with prisoners, answering up to 100 letters per day. Through their newsletter (which has a mailing list of 20,000) and books their message is being spread to countless prisoners, social workers and others interested in reforming the criminal justice system.

http://www.everythingandnothingproject.com/p/everything-and-nothing-source-materials.html }Jorge Luis Borges was an Argentinian writer, essayist, poet and translator. He was tremendously influential, writing intricate poems, short stories, and essays that instantiated concepts of dizzying power. His work embraced the “character of unreality in all literature.” The essay collection Borges y la Matemática by Guillermo Martínez outlines how Borges used concepts from mathematics in his work. Other books such as The Unimaginable Mathematics of Borges’ Library of Babel by William Goldbloom Bloch, and Unthinking Thinking: Jorge Luis Borges, Mathematics, and the New Physics by Floyd Merrell also explore this relationship. Some of his short stories, from which we have drawn inspiration in this project, are reproduced below – The Library of Babel, On Exactitude in Science, and The Aleph.

http://www.hasslberger.com/tecno/tecno_8.htm }” Schaumberg could be called the father of implosion technology. The implosion principle is of course diametrically opposite to what today’s explosion oriented technology utilizes. Implosion has to do with a self sustaining vortex flow of any liquid or gaseous medium, which has a concentrating, ordering effect and which decreases the temperature of the medium, in opposition to the dictates of ‘modern’ thermodynamics. See my two articles Vortex – the Natural Movement and A new Beginning for Thermodynamics.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnA8GUtXpXY&feature=em-subs_digest-vrecs }We have been brought up to believe that the mind is located inside the head. But there are good reasons for thinking that this view is too limited. Recent experimental results show that people can influence others at a distance just by looking at them, even if they look from behind and if all sensory clues are eliminated. And people’s intentions can be detected by animals from miles away. The commonest kind of non-local interaction mental influence occurs in connection with telephone calls, where most people have had the experience of thinking of someone shortly before they ring. Controlled, randomized tests on telephone telepathy have given highly significant positive results. Research techniques have now been automated and experiments on telepathy are now being conducted through the internet and cell phones, enabling widespread participation.

1. Q: Is “InterNet” really an acronym?
A: Yes, it “really” is. Stands for “Interconnected Networks”, and always has.
2. Q: I’ve heard it said, that the Sun neither lights nor heats. Is this true?
A: Yes, it is.
3. Q: Are orbs and vortices real?
A: Obviously yes, they’re quite real, but some of the websites and physical sites are hoaxes and tourist-traps only. We have witnessed both orbs and vortices personally.
4. Q: Do you put Laurie Anderson under “Music” or “Poetry” ?
A: Under both. Some artists fit under more than one heading.
5. Q: What’s a “Sufi tag” ?
A: Look at the website and see one. Note: terms like “tag” and “graff”
are used interchangeably by such artists. Furthermore various media or techniques are routinely mixed, such as stencils, paint, stickers, spray, and so forth.
6. Q: Who is “The J-man” ?
A: The J-man is one of a series of notable individuals employing similar nicknames,
as follows: The G-man : G. Gordon Liddy
The I-man : Don Imus.
The J-man : Author of this document. (Along with Dr. Jone Dae.)
The K-man : Krishnamurti.
7. Q: What are your favorite Kate Bush selections?
A: Album: Sensuous World; Cut: Cloudbusting. Also good: Ninth Wave.
8. Q: What does Mr. Kamel have against Ken Wilbur?
A: See e.g., www.kheper.net/topics/gurus/Three_Cards_Trick.html , and others. Sorry, but we do not approve of Mr. Wilbur.
9. Q: Why do some multimedia files sound like mice when speaking or singing?
A: This, even Mr. Kamel doesn’t know. We here in America use the world’s most advanced digital technology, and he feels that people should sound like people, rather than mice.
10. Q: Who are Derek & Clive?
A: Well, they’re both dead now, but they were Peter Cook and Dudley Moore.
11. Q: About the folkdance clubs… would a Central Coast or Central California club, be on the southern list or the northern list?
A: Depends on which list you’re looking at. Some Californians still don’t realize that there is a Central California, and a Central Coast, and that these areas are neither north nor south, but a blend of the two. Example: San Simeon already looks like Santa Cruz, north of it, and Santa Barbara already looks like L.A., and Ventura, south of it, is basically already part of L.A. But San Luis Obispo, in the middle, looks only like itself, and there is not other place that has, e.g., redwood, pine, palm, oak, and fig trees all in one place at the same time.
12. Q: Are there any other websites, or videos, that are, you know, about the aliens and E.T. and, like, the Visitors?
A: Unfortunately, there are tons of them. Most of the videos, and I mean a sad 99%, are just optical illusions, hoaxes, high-tech forgeries, and videos of various kinds of space debris and atmospheric flotsam and jetsam, and so on. One of our facebook friends regularly sends us new videos of this sort of thing, and the audio is grim, space opera overblown electronic music, with ridiculous narrations, if any, and so on.
13. Q: That’s so surrealistic.
A: Surrealism began primarily as a literary movement based on radical ideas gaining momentum in the 1920s. Naturally, where words flow, images swim congruently, and it is perhaps for the many paintings and ‘graphic works’ associated with the movement that Surrealism has received much of its notoriety. However, judge the basis of Surrealism not by what has been and yet remains to be written about the movement, but by what has been done and yet remains to be accomplished using the mechanisms inherent in the Vice of Surrealism.
14. Q: I heard that Bo Lozoff died recently. Is that true?
A: Very sad. Yes, it is true; and he was a Saint. Some quotations: “Bo’s first book, We’re All Doing Time, with over 400,000 copies in print, was hailed by The Village Voice as “one of the ten books everyone in the world should read,” and is acclaimed by prison staff and prisoners alike as one of the most helpful books ever written for true self-improvement and rehabilitation.” “Beloved founder and author Bo Lozoff died November 29, 2012, in a motorcycle accident. The Human Kindness Foundation continues to distribute his books and CDs.” http://www.humankindness.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/Xmas2012announce.jpg }see this image.
