Hey, Do Stories About Silver Foxes Count As Cute Animal Links?
I imagine these being sold at the Toshi Station because, in my head, the Toshi Station is like an intergalactic Pep Boys where you can get power converters, a pack of gum and bobble head dolls. (Nerd Approved)
Listen, Economist reporter, it's not necessary for you to lie to me in the title of your article and claim Portugal is using jujitsu to tackle their drug problems. What? Metaphorical jujitsu? Policy jujitsu? It's an article about the decriminalization of drugs! That should be interesting by itself! And actually, folks, it kind of is. What are your thoughts on decriminalization? Or linguiça? (The Economist)
Kids, this beats the pants right off "Wino Forever" as my most favorite tattoo of all time. Imagine what the flexing will do!! (Deep Sea News)
Here's an embarrassing confession I'm going to make to you hipper-than-thou, you sneer soaked masses. I love musical theater. It's possibly my dorkiest love. It's not one I often share, however, lest I be shunned. And while this clip features Daniel Radcliffe (my least favorite Potter kid) talking about "How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" (one of my least favorite musicals), it is also heavy on the Anderson Cooper (my second favoritest silver fox after Roger Sterling!!!). Here you can see Cooper laying down tracks for the narration of the show. Suck it, Brian Williams, you don't have a corner on the humorous gravitas market. (Evit Beet)
Once again, Think Geek comes through with a gift for my soon-to-be-born nephew. Imma get him this and then I'm going to bite his little toes. Yes I am. Yes I-BEING AN AUNT WILL NOT MAKE ME SOFT, YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH. (Think Geek)
I find these snaps of the props from Rian Johnson's upcoming sci-fi flick, Looper, to be fairly neat, although the water fountain looks like an electric shaver and none of these photos involve Joseph Gordon-Levitt in a vest. Awww, man, now that I've said that, you're not even going to bother clicking, are you? (Slash Film)
The other day a clever commenter pointed out that something I posted was not exactly new. Yup, they're not all going to be fresh off the link vine, my pretties. Some internet concoctions are even better when aged in an oak cask. So here's a treasure I've always found fun to mess around with, a tale as old as time, The Periodic Table of Elements. No really! Don't laugh! There are neat graphics! This isn't your uncle Tom's Periodic Table! Don't neglect to mess with the sliding temperature bar on the right. (Periodic Table)
John Cusack himself shared some photos from the set of the Edgar Allan Poe biopic. It looks sort of, um, dynamic. All I've ever envisioned Poe doing is pondering weakly and wearily. But, apparently, he died under mysterious circumstances? Those are my favorite kind of circumstances! (Boing Boing)
And here is where your long-winded link wench runs out of words so I'll just say: "And now for something completely different!"
Joanna Robinson's favorite part of the "The Elements" song is when Tom Lehrer says "thuliam and thallium." Do you have a favorite element? Let me know here: email@example.com
