It’s Voting Day! Go out and get a sticker for coloring in some boxes. Being an adult isn’t so bad.

Kate Beaton has great new stuff for sale. Wee Edgar Allan Poe, for one!

The Beaux-Arts Ball of 1931 was a strange spectacle, filled with noted architects wearing their buildings as costumes. There’s even film of it in this newsreel, starting at the 3-minute mark.

Remember those AT&T “You Will” ads? Well, they were twenty years ago (I know, I KNOW) and Metafilter checks out how far we’ve come. I’m still waiting for voice-activated door openings to be made available to those of us in the middle class, but really, that’s a minor quibble.
