My co-bloggers are elsewhere along the Danube this weekend, leaving the weird guy with the coffee mug and the viral pneumonia in charge. Since you're all probably bored out of your minds, here are some links that might amuse and distract you. Benn loco du taccu - Best damn music on the block. Hitherby Dragons - One of the great fantasists of our time. Fafblog! - I have such a crush on Giblets. Diablo Cody - If this isn't safe for work, you need to change jobs. The Loom - Good bioscience journalism is hard to find. The Valve - Holbonic goodness in plenty! (As if there could be holbonic goodness in short.) The Decembrist - Mark Schmitt is a wonk's wonk. More Words, Deeper Hole - The unexamined genre is not worth reading. James Nicoll is. This Week's Finds in Mathematical Physics - John Baez walks you through a garden of mathematical delights. This is not an oxymoron.
