I’m back from Internet Librarian, and it was great. Look for some useful links in the very near future!

Today, however, we honor yet another loss in 2016 – Pete Burns of Dead or Alive. Pete was a major inspiration to Zazoo during our formative years. I saw him in concert once – as anyone who saw Dead or Alive in concert can attest, it was always an experience. While this song is now bittersweet, since Pete died of cardiac arrest, it’s still one of my favorite songs and videos. Safe travels, Peter Jozeppi.

Happy Friday! I am off to Internet Librarian soon, and will be there most of next week. I won’t be posting here, and probably not on Facebook, either (I am avoiding FB these days, mostly due to politics), but you can check out my Instagram for fun photos.

Links from Zazoo end our week here (thanks, Zazoo!):

- “I would have never guessed [Howard Stern’s] fostered over 300 kittens!"

-  “Cyndi typically says she avoids politics, so I was surprised to see this...”

Have a spiffy weekend and week, everyone! See you soon.

Breaking news that is good, for once! They’ve found another room at the Winchester Mystery House!

The U.S. postal service now has jack-o-lantern stamps for your Halloween missives.

Did you know that there was a clown scare in Boston in 1981? Atlas Obscura is on the case! (Check out the related stories, too. Clowns are everywhere, man.)

Years from now, we will look back on 2016 with a sense of bewilderment, I think.

Back in the 1960s, EPCOT planned a cashless city. They were just ahead of their time!

Also ahead of its time is Bradley W. Schenck’s Asynchronous Bombastitron. Marvel at it, and its companions!

Steampunk Universe is an anthology dedicated to a fully diverse steampunk experience, and you can help fund it now. Go and get involved!

Happy Friday! I’m just going to be spending the day playing with this retro-wave 80s text generator, and recommend you do the same.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone. See you next week.
