Podcasts, Camels & ASCII Babes

Courtesy of the 80s Finnish music scene, one of the worst music videos ever: "I Wanna Love You Tender" by Armi & Danny (gracias a Mercedes por el enlace).

Two more language exchange sites
In addition to linking up speakers, Babelpod's added twist is a focus on language learning podcasts. Here's their current list:

Chinese Survival Guide

clip2go English/German
English as a Second Language Podcast
English Through Stories
Esperanto Radio Arkivo
Learn Japanese
Learn Mandarin Chinese with Serge Melnyk
Lets speak German!
Lille Podcast
Really Learn Spanish
Spanish Arriba!
TOEFL Podcast
Trying to Learn Spanish

Friends Abroad, another free site, partners with major companies such as Berlitz. It also has a nice interface. Personally, I've still had the most luck getting in touch with people through Shared Talk (see previous post).

All Camels
If you ever wanted to own a camel, here are all the resources you need.

A salute to the pioneers of internet pornography. Visit the ASCII babes archive for ASCII text-images of celebrities such as Halle Barry and Heidi Klum. The images are all work safe...I think...kind of have to look at them from a distance.

Almost forgot to mention - Learn Out Loud just released the third selection in their audiobook of the month club - Selected Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson.
