Okay, people, you have a week in which to schedule your trip to attend the 2013 Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony and Webcast (and Lectures). It promises to be an extraordinary evening!

Here's something quite useful for anyone traveling on the Tube in London: an app which tracks the position of trains, live.

At Spooky Librarians HQ, we are big fans of abandoned areas and empty buildings. In that vein, this list of abandoned theme parks is quite lovely/bleak/intriguing.

Over at Slate, there's a photograph of Lovecraft's doodles and notes for "At the Mountains of Madness." Graphologists and armchair psychologists, have at it!

Lovecraft lived in the era of typewriters. That era is mostly gone, but one industry -- funeral homes -- is, ironically, keeping the old technology alive.
