Elvis Cups, True Love, Persepolis: The Movie
DIY Zombie, Trooper, & Yummy Bus Stops

That's right, it's the return of the ever-popular Isotope Mailbag Link-a-Palooza, wherein we collectively explore the brilliant, bawdy, and bizarre corners of the internet thanks to readers like you. If this massive assortment of dead-ends on the information superhighway doesn't exhaust you, you can always check out previous installments here, here, and here.

First up is some local news from Jenny Drake that's surely going to bum out everyone who rides SF public transportation. Those brilliantly bizarre scratch n' sniff bus stop ads that smell of freshly baked cookies are out. Oh and we were soooo looking forward to sniffing the Muni stops!

Heather H keeps us up to date with more great indy comic news, including a link to Sony Classic's official website for Persepolis: The Movie and to Persepolis author Marjane Satrapi's blog, both of which make us pretty darn excited to hit the theaters in 2007. Thanks, Heather!

Chris Reed has been keeping our in-box active all week long with more news from the world of music than we know what to do with! We're not exactly sure what we like most, seeing Weird America do Devo or even more rare Johnny Cash footage? Nine Inch Nails songs lullaby-ed for babies or video of Black Sabbath playing the 1970 San Francisco Gay Pride Parade? Elvis themed peanut butter & banana creme Reese's Peanut Butter Cup or Metallica promising to do the snake eating it's own tail routine? Or could it be Danzig threatening to kill the guy who got our recent Santa Cruz show cancelled?

Well whatever the case, we definitely approve of seeing Trio's "Da Da Da" topping Russian President Vladimir Putin's playlist. Way to keep us up on the world of music, Chris! Now go watch the hilarious booze-&-violence filled video for Trio's classic song... and speaking of music, if the comic industry ever starts acting as outright stupid as the music industry is remind us to try our hand at something else.

Now that we've vented, let's get back on track with a not-to-be-missed YouTube video and some goodies from Isotope amigo Kaytea who checks in DIY Zombie and some great English-as-a-second-language testimonials about true love. Ah... life is good, isn't it?

Some folks just know what we like! Which is why Steven B sends us links like this beautiful collection of cheesy old album covers, the we'll-check-this-every-day Junk Food Blog, a newly re-vitalized, this collection of 59 Jaw-Dropping Roadside Attractions (including a couple of our favorites: Carhenge and an entire Wyoming town devoted to the Jackalope), and this eHow article entitled "How to Fix Hair Disasters." Wait... what?!

And rounding out a huge Link-a-Palooza:

Alan David Doane. of Comic Book Galaxy fame, just about had us falling out of our chairs with this next one, The Top Ten Worst Company URLs. Which include the Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at, the Italian Power Generator company with the unfortunate web addressx of, Pen Island a place for fine pens can be found at, and the Mole Station Native Nursery who perhaps take the prize for on this one... More at Top Ten Worst Company URLs.

There's just no topping that, friends.
