Happy Friday! Many thanks to everyone for reading and sending in links! And speaking of links...

From Julie: Behold galaxy NGC 6744, which looks eerily like the Milky Way. In related matters, Brendan posted this amazing page from NASA about "free-floating planets."

Also from Julie: Charles Dickens's home in Kent is to become an International Heritage Center.

From Zazoo: if you have a Mac and use the Hidden application, you can track the whereabouts of your computer, as this person did to hilarious (and successful!) effect.

When visiting Zazoo and Satori last year, we got to see JG Thirlwell conduct an orchestra in the park as they performed the theme to "Venture Brothers" and much, much more. It was amazing, and now you can see what it was like for yourself, thanks to YouTube!

Stephen Fry and Lady Gaga are unlikely friends; the former interviewed the latter and there are photos to prove it. The interview itself is interesting, too!

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone. Back on Monday.
