There's a paper to write, a lecture to see that is
worth extra credit, your friends want you to go
with them to see a movie and you really ought to
wash your clothes. But wait. Here's a link to an
interesting website. And here's another. And that
one recommends another, even more amusing site.
Just scroll down, point and click. One good link
The Arcane and Trivial
What the web does best is to give everyone with a
passion for something the opportunity to tell the
world about it. Sometimes in excruciating detail.
From the 100 best beers, to toilets of the world,
to the last words of famous people, this
collection of websites celebrates the joys of data
collection and sharing the
arcane and trivial.
Our collection of
college radio stations
are owned by the colleges or universities which
they service. These are not the NPR affiliates
staffed and programmed by professionals. Instead
these are the low powered stations DJ'd and
programmed by students. The are an eclectic mix
with music running the gamut from alternative to
urban contemporary and every genre in between.
Take a listen to what your contemporaries enjoy.
There are comedians, comedy troupes, funny folks
and zany webmasters listed in this
collection of sites. The one thing they
have in common is that they made us laugh,
sometimes out loud.
There are some
we either belong to or lurk about. They might be
forums, journals or actual meetups.
Events and Festivals
There's music to hear, things to see, especially
Events and Festivals.
Every so often we come across a special website
with content we feel is outstanding and that no
one we know seems to have heard of. We just have
to designate them our
Film and Video
The internet is the perfect vehicle for the
independent producer and director to showcase
their art, whether it is shot from cameras or
animated. Our collection of
film and video websites have amused us
and kept us up late more than a few times.
Our collection of
pictures that we found while exploring
the internet brought smiles, groans, oh wows or
the occasional wtf. We copied them and stuck them
up here for your viewing pleasure.
We love to play games, especially if they are
challenging and free. We host
several dozen games
here at Fat Campus and invite you to test your
skill at any or all of them. In addition, since
there are lots of other games we find and play on
the net, we've put together a page of links
here so you can
play them too!
These links go to
sites which, to say the least, have content that
is not for everyone. If you feel you might be
offended by such things, do the prudent thing and
move on to another page.
Movie Reviews & Recommendations
list of recommendations
is taken from our list of movies that we watched
and then rated on
Netflix. These are the best of the best, in our
humble and very subjective opinions. As we see
more movies, and we do about every other day, the
best will be posted here.
One of our visitors wrote
this little piece that captures the
humor found in Hollywood's formulaic method of
making certain favorite movies.
Some enlightened mainstream artists and record
labels have discovered that offering free to
MP3's to their
fans and potential fans enhances interest in their
music and does not decrease album sales.
Undiscovered artists often make their music
available as MP3s to download as a way to build an
audience. This means that there is plenty of free
music on the net if you know where to find it. We
do and we share these links with you.
people with homes
on the web who, for one reason or another interest
us. We thought we'd share them with you.
We got an e-mail not too long ago from an
advertising executive who told us that we had the
most comprehensive links page to
collections of photography on the net.
Who are we to argue with such an authority.
A composition, generally poetical, holding up vice
or folly to reprobation; a keen or severe exposure
of what in public or private morals deserves
rebuke; an invective poem; as, the Satires of
Juvenal. Yeah, that's what we've got

of them have places on the web dedicated to their

TV or Not TV
Is it a box that sits in the corner and sucks out
your soul or is it a vital gateway to information
and entertainment. We have
websites here that look at the tube
from both sides and in between.
We set out with the best of
intentions. We're looking for essential websites
in astronomy or literature. The next thing you
know there's something strange on the monitor that
catches our attention and takes us away from the
job at hand. Then we came up with a solution. If
we make a page of this stuff and put it on Fat
Campus, then looking at this

It costs money to make and host a website as well
as time and energy. So what is
this stuff doing
on the web anyway?
