Part of a great YouTube series.  Fun stuff!

I suppose that crack and bullshit are in the ingedients list....

The Austerity Kitchen

This is a really cool site.  The author researches food and recipes from times of want and deprivation - food used for steerage passengers on the Titanic, "iron rations" for Prussian soldiers during the Franco-Prussian War, meals prepared in London during WWII rationing, etc.

The Cemetery Gun

Needless to say, I want one.

How childhood helped our species

Pretty neat theory!

The Lost Family

A fascinating tale from Siberia.  I'd be curious if there were any similar stories from Canada, Alaska, or perhaps the Australian Outback.  I know that there have been families attempting to live "off the grid" for decades, now.  I wonder if any of them got to this point of isolation.

An amusing and amazingly scholarly satire...

Frozen Dead Guy Festival is on March 8th!

I've always wanted to attend this, although I think that at that time of year the weather would be ghastly.  Nederland is a pretty little town, though.

Made In 48!
A neat concept by one of my fave contemporary bands, Well Hung Heart.  They film getting together with another band, (in this case, Gram Rabbit), and they commit to creating a recording a song in 48 hours. 

Serial Killers on Etsy!

Well Hung Heart performs Devil

I've become a big fan of this Southern California band.  Fresh, interesting, and a great sound.  Predictions are always tricky, but I think they're going to grow, both artistically and in popularity.

Love Story

(Thanks for the link and title, Mike!)

"Disney" Movie...,0,4296.story
This sounds pretty intriguing, and one that I assume will be totally unavailable except as a pirated copy...

The cutting edge of musical composition...

I believe that this breaks several cardinal rules about music, (Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk!)

Wonderfully disturbing ads...

I'm trying to get the Oreo cookies concession there...

Nice little article on pre-Pearl Harbor military actions by the U.S. in WWII

The unmanned weather stations is an obscure little bit of military history that I find quite interesting.  And, if I remember correctly, there was a manned station in Greenland for a short while.

The Museum of Forgotten Art Supplies

The Internet is amazing...

A witchcraft mystery from WWII?
This has been kicking around the amateur sleuth and fortean realms for quite some time, now.  A fascinating little tale.

Star Trek 3....

The end of an era
I've never been a fan of pro sports, football or otherwise.  And I happen to think that the current owner of the Redskins is a pompous, spoiled, and worthless shack of shit.  But these guys were always fun, and as the article points out, (but not enough), they used their status in the community to raise a lot of money for charities that really needed it.  It was silly, they were having fun, and they were doing some good.  I always felt that was what sports should've been like. 

We are still ready and waiting for the lobster backs!

RECORD store online!

Just discovered this, and it looks pretty neat - a store dedicated to the LP and turntables!

Postings are going to be a little sparse for the next couple of weeks, there's a lot going on that's occupying my time.  Will hopefully be able to get to devote more time to Weirdness by mid January.
