Sidetracked! by Omnipelagos

I have been sidetracked from my new template finding mission by Omnipelagos (via Dan's Horrendous Waste of Bandwidth).

Omnipelagos is a "meandering" search engine that finds connections between two things. Like Six Degrees of Separation, except not necessarily six and not necessarily people.

For example (and yes I have been reading far too many political blogs):
From The Von Bondies to Helen Clark:

The Von Bondies
The Von Bondies are a garage rock/blues band from Detroit, Michigan
Detroit, Michigan
[Colleges and universities / Politics] which was founded in Detroit in 1817 then later moved to Ann Arbor in 1837, Detroit has several universities and colleges within its borders
Ann Arbor, Michigan
[Events] There has been a tradition of students running naked through the streets once a year at the end of the University of Michigan winter semester
now a television presenter offered a monetary reward for anyone who streaked in front of Prime Minister Helen Clark.
Helen Clark
