Welcome to Some Fun Links
If you are in one of Christopher Dean's classes at UCSB, then you have arrived at a place to play around with the web. "Links of the Moment" have something to do with writing, reading, and learning, but hey, everyone needs a break now and again.
Anyway, below are some of my favorite links "of the moment" for you to peruse and play with. If you come up with some good ones email them to me. Again my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Time Kill Central: This is part of a truly funny, and actually useful site, by the Brothers Magliozzi. However, this really is a way to have fun with jokes, cars, and other oddball stuff. It's located at http://www.cartalk.com/menus/timekill.html.
- An Online Madlibs Site: I still, after years and years, love Mad Libs. Here you have a chance to select you favorite words, drop them into a story, and see what madness erupts. Check out this fun little site at http://www.eduplace.com/tales/.
- Desperate Housewives Site: My wife and I are big fans of the men and women of Wisteria Lane. Check out the official website at http://abc.go.com/primetime/desperate/.
- The Shakespeare Insult Kit: A chance to do what many of Shakespeare's finest characters do--insult with great aplomb. It's a fun way to make Shakespeare seem less scarry, and its' located at http://www.pangloss.com/seidel/shake_rule.html. You can also read some of the Bard's finest insults at http://www.pangloss.com/seidel/Shaker/.
- The Writing Program Homepage (http://www.writing.ucsb.edu).
- The Webpage for Specialization in Language, Literacy, and Composition Studies (http://education.ucsb.edu/Graduate-Studies/Education/programsofstudy/lang-lit-cs.htm).
Again, welcome, and if you need to contact me, then email me at email@example.com. I look forward to working with you this semester--both face-to-face and in cyberspace.
