Wow, I Didn't Mean to Neglect the Blog for Most of the Week. Uh, Have Some More Random Links.

Big Dead Place: A largely tongue-in-cheek website maintained by people in Antarctica. Contains articles, blogs, an "Ask an Antarctican" feature, and a section that's nothing but reviews of John Carpenter's The Thing. This captured my interest mostly because I'd recently read Kim Stanley Robinson's Antarctica. I must say, judging by this site, it looks like he did get a lot of the details right, including the fact that it really does help to be crazy to work there.

A short US newspaper article on the new Doctor Who: Don't forget, by the way, that there's another episode on tonight!

The Simpsons opening sequence performed by live people: OK, everybody and their dog has linked to this already, but what the heck. It's cool.

The Word Nerds: I downloaded a bunch of episodes of these guys' podcast to while away some of the more boring hours at work recently. Linguaphile high school teachers talk about words and play some pretty good indie music. Definitely worth a listen if you're interested in that sort of thing.
