You know I'm busy when I don't even have time for a proper link dump, but here's what I got to tie you over for now.
When I was a younger man and traipsing around hipster-infested Brooklyn neighborhoods late into the evening on a school night seemed like a pefectly reasonable thing to do, one of my favorite monthly events was John Hodgman's Little Gray Book lectures (for which I created the PowerPoint Anthology of Literature). Now non-New Yorkers and other people who, perhaps because they are too old and pathetic, are unable to attend in person can experience LGB through the miracle of podcasting.
Also via Panopticist (somebody stop that madman), the pirated pilot for the US remake of The Office. Haven't had time to watch it yet, but the buzz is not. Very not.
There are heroes on both sides? No, George, Darth Zarqawi is not a hero, he's a murderer and terrorist. Why do you hate the Republic?
If you haven't been following this you're missing the funniest political crusade on the Interweb this week. Be sure to follow his links to TPM, and see also: this, this, that, and most of all the other.
