Links from others today. Thanks, all!

From Bunny: are you more nerd, geek, or dork? He and I are both nerds. I thought I would be more of a geek, but evidently I was wrong.

Also from Bunny: completely bizarre Christian song demos. My favorite title of the bunch is "God, Give Devil the Measles." Er?

From Tina, via Bunny: the seriously twisted art of Joshua Hoffine.

From Cassandra: an article from The Atlantic titled "Sex and the College Girl." Nothing new, you say? Well, that's true...but the article was written in 1957, which makes it very interesting.

Also from Cassandra: studying the brain, finding the connection between T.S. Eliot and Google searches in May, exploring the world of dreams and stories, and visiting the Museum of Fakes.

From Satori: gorgeous photos from the Covent Garden Puppet Festival.

From the Sparkle Queen (Sparkle Queen! Hi hi hi!): even the Boston Globe is getting in on this curious steampunk trend.

And finally, something I saw on one of the Gawker publications -- the CD Cover Meme: "Your band name is a random Wikipedia title. Your album name is the last four words of a random quote. Your cover picture is the third picture on this page." I dutifully followed instructions and am happy to report that "One Graveyard to Another," the first album from my band Lappa Rethymno, will have this awesome cover. Try it, it's fun!

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.

No FAIR! It says:

You scored better than half in Nerd and Dork, earning you the coveted title of: Tri-Lamb Material.

You know, I really think I was meant to be a dork but my sisters chased my poor dorkiness out of me by the time I hit 16. No dorks on thier watch.

I've never been geeky, though.

I am "Pure Nerd," according to the test: 73 % Nerd, 21% Geek, 34% Dork. Compared to other people of my age and gender, I scored higher than 83% on nerdiness, 38% on geekosity, and 63% on dork points.

The fact that I am even reporting these results should boost the last category, it seems to me.
