Today we are inquisitive.

Has anyone played Kentucky Route Zero yet? How is it?

Has anyone tried Habit RPG? I just registered and am considering it, for those "never get around to it" projects at the very least.

How do these baseball coaches learn such great calligraphy skills?

Do you like props? Are you intrigued by how they're made? Would you like to see some videos?

Have you heard of the Cliff House? It was an amazing (and short-lived) structure. Go and investigate!

Here's a lovely piece about Retronaut, one of my favorite sites of all time. You can spend hours upon hours delving into the images.

Did you know Google has a “music timeline” page which lets you track what was popular when? It goes into subgenres, too. I was investigating the goth/industrial stream and found bands to try, which is always nice.

The Leica camera turns 100 this year!

Also 100 years ago: the beginning of WWI. Europeana 1914-1918 is your guide to the events.

Accordions are over 100 years old, but are enjoying a renaissance. That’s kind of strange. Good, but strange.(The article cites "retromania" as one possible reason.)

Happy Friday!

From Julie:  Exploring the vaults in the Bank of England. It seems like a Doctor Who episode should address this.

Thanks for bearing with me during this warmup week! I leave you with a video of the song that's been going through my head all week. Have a spiffy weekend, everyone.

Our warmup week continues its theme of nostalgia with this oral history of Heathers. I still wish they’d gone with the original ending, which is discussed.

Only one link today, but it is such a good one! "How the Muppets Created Generation X" speaks to me in a huge way. It also introduced me to the term "lunatic humanism," which is pretty close to my standard operating method, really.

Nellie Bly was one of my childhood heroines. There was even a Nellie Bly board game! I didn’t know this! It’s at the New York Historical Society.

If women get the vote, who knows what might happen? They might…go to bars! Or smoke! Egad!

From Brendan: “When mechanical analog computers ruled the waves.” There are some lovely illustrations past the first page, too.

Speaking of lovely, gaze upon these “geek” alphabet blocks, and be amazed. They’re absolutely fantastic.
