    Description: new independent magazine of visual photographic art (Flash)
    Comments: For all I know, this site may have just launched in the last few days.  The counter on the splash page said "3" when I entered the site.  One of the fun things about doin' the coolstop thing is finding cool sites that nobody knows about yet and pointing them out to you early on.  The concept and mission of this online/offline mag are commendable -- it calls itself an "independent visual showcase" and describes itself as a "visual mix of urban photography and cultural imagery spliced from samples from the collective consciousness of the 21st century."  This non-profit group intends to publish a print version 5 times a year and it looks like the brand new site is here to attract contributors while giving us a little sample of the type of art it will feature.  Hat's off to a guy who calls himself R!CO -- he designed the site and there's several things I really like about it.  He demonstrates how Flash doesn't always have to take a long time to load -- he seems to be using it more as an effective interface instead of for showing off all the bells, whistles and effects of Flash and making the user wait (and wait) - it's refreshing to see a Flash site that's not about Flash, if that makes sense.  Anyway, the layout and navigation is excellent and though the amount of visual content is somewhat limited at the moment, it is really good.  This is great photography, especially the colors and effects - definitely fine art presented in a well-designed package... check it out, silly!

    Description: online portfolio of Paul O'Neill
    Comments: Paul O'Neill calls this version "a whole new beginning" and I call it a great website.  I really appreciate the fact that Paul's design portfolio is free of the typical sales pitches that cross the line between "creative" and "commercial", because I'd hate to miss this chance to recognize such an innovative site.  At the outset, you notice that Paul is only using one half of the window space for content (vertically) and if you're like me, you wonder how he intends to pull that off.  I found myself hoping that a vertical scrollbar wasn't part of the plan and was I pleasantly surprised  His "slider" idea is unique and fun to use - and the "thumbnails" are done quite well, thank you.  I was really impressed by the many covers Paul has designed and submitted to other design sites, and the collection of big "banners" that includes many submitted by other designers... there's a sense of community spirit here that you'll pick up on immediately.  It's obvious that Paul's still working on several sections, but this site is good to go and easily grabs today's Best of the Cool -- what a sweet design!

    Description: An ambient immersive library of dreams, better experienced than explained.
    Comments: With a name that implies you may have found something different than expected and a scattered (I mean, really scattered) mix of input and output, Curt's site is....uhhhhh...errrrr....unique.  A few other one word impressions... random... unbridled... visual... energetic... fun!  The design is all over the place.  You are thrown into a million different directions, but the simple word "wake" keeps you anchored... you can always get back to Curt's body-parts-navigator and it's bright purple glare -- and what's that graphic, anyway, Curt?  This guy is definitely a creative engine getting ready to burst and you might like what you see or you might think it's dreadful... but in the end, Curt is putting it out there and it's up to you how to take it.  Honest and scattered and barely structured... sometimes that's what engages the user... Oh - and do reload the splash page a few times!
