Unfortunately I have nothing witty to say today, I’m far too busy for such banter. What I do have are some links, each one better than the last. I hope. Enjoy!
Oh, quick note – you’ll notice a lower than usual number of sports links in this edition of the Filaments. That is somewhat intentional, I am juggling several different ideas about restructuring this feature and doing editions that focus on the three main teams we follow here. No guarantees yet, but some type of announcement on the new format will be forthcoming. Ok, now enjoy!
- This guy’s Deviant Art page is wonderful, if you merge fantasy, science and dinosaurs you’ve hit most of my checkboxes.
- I actually found that page while reading this interesting, if lengthy, article on the theories of how evolution would have proceeded had the dinosaurs not become extinct, specifically in the case of the Troodon, long considered the most likely wearer of the “smartest dino” crown.
- For my cheap and creative friends, here’s a bunch of free resources licensed under Creative Commons.
- I knew music was mostly math, so I guess it goes to reason that guitars are mostly physics (or something, this link goes a little over my head).
- I’ve long been a fan of mythology and fairy tales, and this site is a great way to go down a rabbit hole of the latter.
- Scientific illustrations meet art at Tabletop Whale.
- Zen Pencils has a good point about education.
- Oh no, Wrigley Field is naked!
- C.J. Edwards is up to 170lbs and I’m going to go eat this whole bag of Doritos now.
- This reminds me that Halloween is getting closer.
- This article was a gut punch – no more Saturday morning cartoons in the U.S?! Well, screw that, when the Bug is old enough to watch TV we will be watching cartoons on Saturday morning, networks be damned (no, really networks, go be damned, you can’t get much worse).
- For no particular reason, here’s Yahoo’s Saturday Night Live vault.
- Speaking of no particular reason.
- I found out that my wife likes Billy Idol, which is all the reason I needed to make this the Song of the Week.
