I've seen very few of these, but it looks like a good list.

I've seen 13 Assassins and it's great. I haven't seen the Artist but I've seen OSS 117 and Dujardin is a genius. I wonder what Steve would put on an international movie list...

I heard this week that my substitute teaching at an OTS class had earned me "allocades".

Played with Fusion Tables a bit to create a map of Chicago post offices scheduled for closure.

If you don't go to this next weekend, you hate America. Or at least hate barbecue.

This book looks great, and the photos are fascinating.

Wow. Photos of the Chicago River before it was reversed, in new book _The Lost Panoramas: When Chicago Changed its River and the Land Beyond _.

"Now I know it doesn’t have as much content as the NYT, but don’t you wish that more news sites looked like Gapers Block? Would you ever have a problem going to a beautiful site like that to catch up on what is happening today? Hell, wouldn’t you go back to check even more just because of the pleasant design? We are forced to go somewhere if we want our news and that is what is keeping these horrible news sites alive."

Holy crap.

I remember seeing a doc about air gee-tar dudes and it showed that the "best" ones came from Scandinavia or somewhere in northern Europe. It just seemed so random.
