= pages full of links. = The best
All the links on this page were tested August 16 2010 — so everything here should actually work. The Editor
hese links are visual, kinetic, interactive, political, entertaining and or art-related. Most listings are from The Aesthetic Crisis Center, who wishes to remain anonymous. The ACC, who's been using that monicker for longer than some of the people who use it now, started this page. It is being continued by many others. Anyone may contribute. We'll credit you, if you wish. David Donovan sends out an irregular email post of these things, so he is cited often. Anyone may join us in this endeavor, since the originator of the project faded away.
