Kids in Mind

This site provides fairly exacting descriptions of the sexual, violent, and profane content of movies, while being as careful as possible to not give away plot points. Handy way to judge if some movie is over the line or not when watching with younger viewers. Drug use is not well covered, however.

Crazy Horse Memorial

Started in the 1940s as a one-man project, this museum memorial is still a work in progress, carving a mountain into a representation of Crazy Horse on his steed. (Crazy Horse never allowed his picture to be taken, so it is not his likeness.) The 'Carving a Mountain' section is informative on this uncommon medium.
