It's a rainy, uninspiring sort of Monday here. Let us go immediately to the links of distraction!

Show choir is becoming cool, thanks to Glee. (Confession #1: I was a show choir performer. Confession #2: I haven't yet seen Glee; I am sort of afraid it will induce flashbacks to gold lame and embarassing solos.)

Is our presidents reading? Yes, they are, fortunately.

Tor Books, sci-fi publisher extraordinaire, celebrates its thirtieth birthday with a look at the people behind the scenes. (I think I missed my calling as a proofreader, incidentally. Looking at those piles of paper to read is exciting!)

Cassandra points out another problem with the Twilight series; the vampires are not environmentally conscious. Horrors!

The Bayeux tapestry meme is an oldie but a goodie. I had no idea there were so many variations.

The National Gallery bought some forgeries once upon a time, and has decided to celebrate rather than hide the fact. You can compare the original to the forgery and see which one you prefer!

Octopi: the filmmakers of the future? It's possible, since they're enamored with the shiny cameras they see...
