Here Is Linky

Because Pearce demanded it! And because I do it every Friday if I can. Here is FRIDAY LINKY!

Stanley Kubrick is on the record that HAL was not gay.

Kate Beaton linked to this blog about American book cover design, and this was the entry that blew me away. These designs are from around 1880 but look like something you’d see in the 1970s. Incredible.

Also incredible from the 1880s: photos of old London

Hyperbole-and-a-half’s post about how her dogs coped with the stress of moving is getting much attention because it is hysterically funny. Read it!

Privilege-denying dude! (via Daniel Gorringe)

NZ Herald has photos of an orca surfing.

Very cool Steampunk Batman designs on Warren Ellis’ message board

Lots of people in academia will have had this circulated to them – a guy who (claims to) write papers for cheating students describes his work. (Making Light figures it’s on the level and makes some very smart comments about how this relates to privilege.) Best thing for me is that the guy’s article reads perfectly in the voice of Will Ferrell’s essay-provider character from Undeclared

(NB Ferrell is not as annoying in this role)

    Why the fuck would HAL be gay? Some people have too much time on their hands. Not everything has a freaking subtext.

    Maybe I’m just unobservant, but I can’t find King Kong on that “giant monsters” diagram.

    The lego house is a model of a temple in Kyoto, btw.
