We often hear that Yanks just don't "get" Dame Edna but we think
this is a lot of possum pie. The bigger problem is the media doesn't know
how to market Barry Humphries, the actor who portrays the housewife/superstar.
Even if you don't get the difference between Sydney and Melbourne, don't
care for men dressed as women, or miss the fact that virtually every word
out of Edna's mouth is a put down of someone else in order to bolster
her own self-image, Dame Edna is still incredibly funny.
Noel Coward Society
Noel Coward is the most underrated of 20th century personalities. This
site is a great tribute chock full of content about The Master.
Let's be honest: This is a site that has intrigued us for months but we

She's hardly our favorite singer, but we remain in the minority.
Peggy Lee Fan Page
It's a great mystery why the Lounge movement hasn't declared Miss Lee

home page with just enough details and great photos to put it on our "must-see"

Duke Ellington Website
Like the Ella site listed below, an excellent and beautiful resource.
It's only right that Frank Sinatra should be honored with really one of
the best looking sites on the net. Attractive, quick-loading and fun:
blues-eyes.com has it all. Even if you have only a passing interest in
Sinatra, you owe it to yourself to take a look.
Aside from being a fitting salute, the site is gorgeous with great
graphics that don't take forever to download and there's a fine
article by Will Freidwald. This site was AWOL for awhile but now
it happily has a home.
Unofficial Ethel Merman Homepage
Our own simple yet moving tribute to the mouth that roared.
There's so much martini crap around the ‘net it's enough to drive one
to drink. Here is a site that bucks the bland trend with interesting discussions
and theories. Unlike MrLucky, who tends to speak in absolutes, this site
is thought-provoking and educational without being pedantic.
MrLucky must have been separated at birth from resident alchemist, Paul

We were going through our old "bookmarks" and "favorites"
in our browsers and we're a little sad to note that so many sites that
we've loved have gone away. You may not know this, but the web at one
point was full of information, not ads! Anyway, we were thrilled and almost
touched to discover the Mentos page is still up and running, especially
now that the ad campaign has changed.
days of bland websites, we're always interested in hearing about interesting
new places to visit. Please send us
your suggestions but keep in mind that we have exacting, yet arbitrary
standards that we must adhere to. If your site features music that starts
without us asking (MIDI or wave!), uses frames for no apparent reason,
is strictly a commercial site with no other resources of interest, or
just doesn't strike our fancy, we probably won't list it. We're not nasty
about this, but we really need a compelling reason to add you to our bookmarks
beyond a request.
