Dead People Server List
If you lie awake at night wondering if the actor who played "Mikey" in Life cereal ads is alive or if cowboy icon Gene Autry is pushing up the daisies, you can finally rest in peace, so to speak. The Dead People Server List tells you if your favorite celebrity has passed away or worse, is alive and doing infomercials.

Afterall, we all know Catwoman could beat the cape off of Batman!
The Rockford Files Homepage
Jim Rockford was the kind of private investigator you could really trust your life with, plus he was just so darn sexy in an older-man-from-the-1970s kind of way. Read all the answering machine messages he listened to over the seasons or brush up on your episode summaries. The multimedia section has some cool sound files of Jim talking on his answering machine and of course the groovin' theme song.
Bottle cap art, Jack Chick tracts, Don Knotts and White Castle burgers rule this site of interesting ideas. Excellent essays on the pathetic obsession of nostalgia in "Leave It To Beaver lies" and themes in The Dick Van Dyke Show in "Gentiles in Paradise." Be sure to check out the guide to semitrailers in "Kings of the Road."
