We have not seen Avatar yet, but I'm always interested in stories like this one about the creation of the Na'vi language.

We may see the new Sherlock Holmes movie (I don't know yet, I'm sort of ambivalent about Holmes As Action Hero), but in the meantime, here's a defense of Watson. I always thought Watson was really underrated and unappreciated, so I'll be glad if the movie shows another side of him!

An edition of Alice in Wonderland that Lewis Carroll gave to the "real" Alice just sold for $115,000. Wowzers. (Thanks, Julie!)

I always liked the Bauhaus art movement, but since seeing the exhibit at MOMA I've been even more fascinated. A review of the exhibit goes into great detail. See it if you can!

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, the Autry National Center in Los Angeles is running an exhibit titled "Out West" which focuses on the little-known GLBT population of the Old West. This sounds really interesting.

And lastly, some architecture art goodness: Scott Teplin's Alphabet City imagines the letters of the alphabet as Dymaxion-like houses. Fun stuff!
