One of the many fun uses of Google Earth and Google Maps: comparing photos from then to now. Here are shots of various New York City landmarks in 1924 and 2008, including parts of Central Park (then a reservoir) and Prospect Park's Grand Army Plaza (which looks pretty much the same today!).

This weekend brings you the tenth anniversary of Whisky Live in London, the fourth Father Ted gathering in Ireland (called, logically, TedFest 4), and the belated but no less awesome Magic Hat Mardi Gras parade in Burlington, Vermont, boasting over 40 floats.

I don't know if anyone is watching Caprica these days, but if you are, Religion Dispatches is doing a nice recap of each episode from a spiritual angle.
