the drunken misadventures of Lou and Gabe – a mature webcomic for the immature (Flash)
Comments:Tasteless. Absolutely. Join me today as coolstop reaches new depths with a daily pick just for... err... ummm... drunks. Wait a minute! The site is very well designed and has some damn good comic illustrations, thank you. But the content? "You guys are twisted. Keep up the good work!" says one visitor. Chris, the all-around weirdo does the artwork and Ron, the slick talkin' crazy dude writes the words. 9 exciting episodes in the lives of Lou and Gabe, the professional drunks – there's supposed to be 10 but the boozers musta lost 1 of 'em. Hic...

a platform of graphic experiments
The site's name translates to Finally Free and I think the two little, playful line-art guys must be David and Philipee. They're speaking in French, which I don't understand well, but I'm picturing it goes something like this. "Will they find the menu David?" "Sure Philippe, but not immediately. It'll drive 'em crazy." Well. It might take Jakob all day to figure it out, but I got it pretty quick (like I said, I was in a hurry). Here's a clue – Plop. Figure it out and you're on your way to cool graphics, cheery tunes, and cute cartoons (which I'm sure are even funnier if you can read French). ... have fun!

pixels, vectors, and pencil works of jung sang hoon
Pixels? We got pixels. The main page has has a big piece of pixelart like I've never seen before – yummy! I believe Jung Sang Hoon hails from somewhere in South Korea, sharing a showcase of extraordinary dotwork, vectorwork, and pencilwork. And as I'm writing this, I'm listening to So Blue by a band called Ego-Wrappin', downloaded from "Today's Music." There's another big, tasty pixelwork imagemap in the "favorite" section. I've got to check out some of the links. Thank you Dr. Zeeha!

signs of the city
Marc's list of favorite streets include some in Paris, Strasburg, and his current home, rua Barão de São Francisco, Rio de Janeiro. "I firmly believe that one can learn much and distract oneself with all the details from our daily environment which, because of tiredness, lack of time or from force of habit, pass unnoticed." I think my growing interest in street art has a lot to do with that. The streets are full of "images, sounds and smells," says Marc, what he calls the street's wealth. The site is intended to "arouse your curiosity" and promote "a new form of urban tourism." Marc's bigtime interest in the details of ordinary streets shines through in "Eye on the Street." From advertising on trees to Detroit and Harlem of the 70s to graphic cities like Brussels, it's a superb visual magazine of urban things.
