I am back and more or less functional. Ergo, here's a bunch of arty links for you this dreary Monday!

A whole mess of punk rock memorabilia goes up for auction today at Christie's. Wow. Full listing and pricing is available!

Monty Python now has their own YouTube channel, figuring to join 'em if you can't beat 'em.

Google has an incredibly huge collection of images from Life magazine. Don't blame me if you end up spending hours there.

Jane Austen apparently mentioned baseball in 1789, which is throwing baseball historians into a furor.

I think I linked to the possibility of New York's Bellevue becoming a hotel before, but now there's a detailed article on it from New York Magazine.

Forget skyscrapers -- now we're going to have superscrapers! I look forward to seeing a spacescraper before long.

Oooo…the Bellevue article creeped me out! What if it is one of those places where you check in, but you don’t check out? Or, what if it is a place where “they” want to continue their research on unsettled minds, so they fuck with “you?” Kind of like the Bergman film, The Serpent’s Egg (or whatever it’s called).

It would be fun though, we should go!
