Barbarella, Barbie, Barbelith
From Grant Morrison’s The Invisibles, a comic series that is pretty damn good.
redelephant: Recently discovered Barbelith Underground, "an experimental online community centred around unique message-board software" The site has some interesting forums on politics, fashion, art, music and collaborative creative projects. It's literary message board has several discussions of topics such as Samuel Delany's difficult sci-fi novel Dhalgren, Bret Easton Ellis's Lunar Park and H.P Lovecraft (nice!).
