Though he has over 60 movie and over 80 TV guest appearance credits, Adam West will forever be Batman.  
 
I loved the Batman TV show as a kid, and I soft of rediscovered it after Adam's appearances on Conan. He would come on and give a halfhearted review of the latest Batman movie, and then insist that he should have been asked to play "Uncle Batman".  
 
Even if you think the show was awful, I'm sure you'll agree with two things:  
 
Julie Newmar was totally hot, and the show was way better than Batman and Robin.

Ever wonder how people figured out there used to be such things as dinosaurs? Curious about how scientists learned to reconstruct fossil skeletons? The knowledge we take for granted today was slow in coming, and along the way, scientists and scholars had some weird ideas.  
 
This Web site shows some of their mistakes, provides a timeline of events, gives biographies of a few of the people who have gotten us where we are today, and lists resources you can use to learn more.

Website of the International Parliament of Writers.  
"On February 14, 1994, the fifth anniversary of the fatwa pronounced against Salman Rushdie, the organization established an executive board made up of seven members: Adonis, Breyten Breytenbach, Jacques Derrida, Edouard Glissant, Salman Rushdie, Christian Salmon and Pierre Bourdieu. Elected first president of the IPW, Salman Rushdie drafted a Declaration of independence, which served as the Parliament's charter."  
 
After it they created the Cities of Asylum network, any city which volunteers provides a "shelter" to the exiled writer, poet, gives him/her a safe place to live freely. Also comes with a citizenship.  
 
The website has loads of censored articles, professionally translated pieces written by the writers of this interesting parliaments members. (langs:english, french, spanish etc)

Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Posted by jones in it's the arts 15 years ago
Gabriel García Márquez is a Colombian-born writer of astonishing skill, thought by many to be one of the world's greatest living authors. Considered one of the pioneers of the Latin American "boom," he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1982.

To read his work is to enter a world that is both enchanting in its beauty and haunting in its dreamy familiarity. The world of Gabo's fiction is a magical realm where the strange and exotic can suddenly become comfortably familiar, and the whole concept of an objective reality is put in question. Here, the borders between life and death swirl together in a gentle and mysterious twilight, and -- if we allow it to possess us -- love can strike flaming miracles from the ashes of our soul.
