Thanks to all who send in links! One day I'll post the backlog of random stuff I found on the web which doesn't fit any other category, too. Maybe a rare weekend post or something is in the near future...

From Julie: an amazing collection of 75 silent films! They're on the way back to the US for preservation.

From Cassandra: Feminist Hulk gets an interview!  Also from Cassandra: the uneasy relationship between Big Pharma and the DSM, as well as more reports in our continuing series about animals vs. humans. This time it's foxes attacking infants and dogs being dyed to look like tigers and pandas (the dogs have not rebelled yet, but you know it's only a matter of time).

From Josie, a related link: the secret bloodlust of the common squirrel. Hey, it's not their fault human fingers look a lot like peanuts.

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone! See you Monday.

RE: Hulk

Have I mentioned that I want to have Judith Butler’s artificially inseminated love child? Man, I’m not sexually attracted to women, but she is the exception.

Her writings have always interested me, but have never swept me off my feet. However, I recently watched an interview with her in the documentary Examined Life. She bewitched me with a heady mix of androgyny, seemingly genuine curiosity, and inviting mischievous twinkle in her eye. She mesmerized me.

RE: Squirrels

I love that humans’ fingers look like nuts to squirrels! True that.
