Enter at your own risk...Parental guidance is suggested.
I haven't updated this page since late 2006 so I don't know what is still relevant or not these days.
These days more time is spent on things like MySpace and My Blog so this page gets neglected.
This page has become a hodge-podge of assorted pages with links to other websites...some of which are cool and useful while others may be lame or boring. Some may be well-known, and others may be quite obscure.
There is no rhyme or reason to anything here and there is no uniformity but hopefully there will be something to hold your interest.
If you have any suggestions for links to include, or if any of the links turn up bad, or if you wanna tell me about something that you like here or dislike here, you can tell me by emailing stuff at struff dot com.
-------- > The right side of this page has a few more pages of my own.
Potentially Fun or Amusing Stuff
Fan of BBQ-ing? You can check out The New England Barbecue Society's website to see if there is an event near you.
Kevin Smith, also known as the "Silent Bob" half of "Jay & Silent Bob", has an outstanding blog where he writes in detail about his films. I especially like his nine-part story about "Jay's" real-life addiction and rehab -- very emotional, especially if you've ever tried helping an addict yourself. I was glued to the computer for about a month reading it.
"Twitchels", the comic with Tourettes, regularly heard on the Opie & Anthony show.
Sky High Airlines: One of the coolest airline websites.
Read what waiters and waitresses have said about various celebrities they have served at bitterwaitress.com.
autographedtoyou.com has a small (but hopefully growing) selection of pics you can buy that are signed by celebrities.
coversproject.com is a database of songs that were played by musicians other than the original. If your favorite band has a song that someone else recorded, you can enter it. You can see how that song or that band links to other songs/bands, thus creating a chain not unlike the fabled Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.
What is the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, you may ask? It is the theory that almost every actor can be linked to Kevin Bacon. For example, someone I used to work with was in a movie with someone who was in a different movie with Kevin Bacon. That makes my former co-worker two degrees away. Try it online and see how many degrees away you can get. It's not easy. They also have a new Elvis version where you enter someone's name and see how far removed they are from The King.
