Quicky Random Links

Rives: Is 4 a.m. the new midnight?: A shocking conspiracy uncovered? Nah, it's just a really funny parody of conspiracy theory thinking. Or is that what they want you to think?

My Day By Jonesy: A Cat's Eye View of Alien: That's right, it's Alien from the cat's point of view. Utterly hilarious.

The Joy of Books: I'm sure my books do things like this when I'm not home.

Clay Shirky: Why SOPA is a bad idea: A good talk about a bad idea.


  1. I'm glad your books do that themselves. I couldn't handle having to reverse all your books and then put them spine out again.

    Incidentally, have you ever thought of grouping your books by color?

    1. No, I have not. I've seen pictures of shelves of people who do that, and it makes me feel kind of itchy. Books aren't pretty color-coordinated decorations, dammit, they're books! They ought to be grouped by sensible criteria, such as what's in them or who wrote them or whether you've read them yet or not.

      Of course, what books want to get up to when nobody's around is their own business. I wouldn't begrudge them a little fun, as long as they tidy themselves up afterwards. :)
