Wow, there are a ton of links from others this week! Many thanks to everyone who sent in something. (Also, if you have something you want to share, feel free to post it in the comments; since I'll be at the conference next week, updates will be erratic and I'm all for people sharing links!)

In alphabetical order of contributor name and/or pseudonym:

From Bunny: the utterly fantastic Emergency Zombie Defense Station! The stick figure pictograms are my favorite part.

From Cassandra: the New York Times delves into what nightmares are made of; Alternet meets a sex mannequin that imitates life by making one do different things to get different results; and GLAAD says that the words "gay" and "lesbian" and the like are preferable to "homosexual" when writing articles. A quick poll among my gay friends affirmed this.

From Courtney: Creature Features brings you October Shadows 2007!

From Dawnowar: now you can send birthday cards from beyond the grave! Ooooweeeooo!

From Holly: the haunting story of a squirrel with eyes too big for its stomach, and how to build your own Sputnik. These two articles are unrelated, at least as far as I know.

Jase got his steampunky photos on Boing Boing! Woot! Yay Jase!

From Father Jeff: a brilliant but disturbing take on "Hurt" by...Kermit the Frog. (Jeff, you better say some Hail Marys for this one.)

From Mykol: Mystery Science Theatre 3000 replica bots! (Also, everyone should be nuice to Mykol, whose hopes and dreams were crushed last week by the Red Sox.)

From the Sparkle Queen (woohoo, the Sparkle Queen lives! I owe her a big long email): the SPOGG blog. (They already hate me for all my sentence fragments in this post, I'm sure.)

From Tony via Holly: our Cincinnati cops are the best, let me tell you.

From Zazoo: climate change is messing up New England's fall foliage tourist season something awful.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! I will try to update a bit next week, or at least post some pictures. See you then!

RE: Zombies

I thought Bunny and I had it all figured out!?!?! We're going to Mexico, remember? With oars as weapons.

We don't need help from anyone, even if it is a Defense Station. We're on the Offense, baby.
