Okay, so I was actually gonna save this list for sunday, but what the heck.
- In anticipation of Springsteen’s new album “Working on a Dream” (release: january 27th), it’s Bruce Springsteen month at The Screen Door.
- An instant Sinfest classic:
I take refuge in my fortress of knowledge to get away from the scary things in life…
- Freshly presented research shows that the Milky Way is much larger than it was thought to be. It moves faster too, so the scheduled collision with Andromeda Galaxy will take place much earlier than expected, in a couple billion years from now. (via .god.voor.dommen)
- In the mean time, a map of the Milky Way in the style of the London Underground.
- People Who Deserve It offers socially responsible reasons to punch someone in the face.
- To say it’s very quiet in London on Christmas morning is a severe understatement. (last three via kottke)
- John Whitfield, who has a PhD in evolutionary biology, is going to read On the Origin of Species for the first time, and blog about it. Since that book is on my to-read pile, I’m planning to follow along. Which means that I have to finish the introduction and chapter one by monday. Goody. Homework. (via Pharyngula)
- Air guitar still rules.
- And an addition to the “hey, that’s my picture!” post: a German article on Tanz der Vampire in Oberhausen uses a photo of my Vienna Tanz in Concert poster.
As it seems that I have some homework (and a busy week ahead), I’ll probably take the weekend off. And if anyone has an inspired idea for that diner for eleven I’ll have to cook next week, pray, do tell.
