 Greetings! It's almost October, which means it's also almost time for the Halloween "OMG your child might be poisoned" scare stories. Joel Best has an incredibly helpful website debunking the paranoia.  (In a related note, the '80s were a weird time to grow up, between the Halloween panic and the Satanic Panic and the PMRC and all that. Our town was full of the panic, but disappointingly short on actual occult happenings.)

Greetings! Not only does the busy schedule continue over here, but we're also taking some days off to celebrate October properly. Posts will continue their erratic pattern through the next month, and maybe through the year. Then, finally, in 2022, things may settle down. Maybe. Hopefully.

Anyway! On to some links!

Flickr and LEGO are teaming up for a photo contest. There will be brilliance, I'm sure of it.

The Getty Museum has a new exhibit called "Transcending Time" about medieval books of hours. Looks fascinating.

Also always fascinating: the moon!

Hi there! Today's fun link: An interpretive dancer demonstrates the power of the hydraulic press. (You may remember the Hydraulic Press Channel from a while back!) Extra points for the coordinated fashion!

 Happy Monday! Here are a few fun links.

Which singers have the biggest vocabularies? Patti Smith is way up there, as is Jim Morrison.

Want to see something useless? Behold the Useless Web generator!

From Bunny: a night in 1992 at Disney's Pleasure Island, where every night was New Year's Eve (seriously, that was the concept). Ah, that hair and music. Good memories.

 Today I give you Sir Indiana Bones, the working cat at the Museum of Osteology! I propose a road trip to visit him.

 Happy Monday and happy Met Gala day. I'm still sad they had to cancel last year's, as the theme for 2020 was all about time and I was really looking forward to seeing the weird ways that was expressed via fashion. This year's theme is America, But anyway! This is much more fun than the Oscars, I think.

Hello there! I'm surfacing briefly!

Google's Doodle today honors Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, with a lovely short song.

Zazoo and Satori were in Philadelphia recently and visited Mount Moriah Cemetery, which looks like a painting in an art museum. And speaking of art, did you know Maxfield Parrish once collaborated with Tiffany to create The Dream Garden, a jaw-dropping mosaic piece also in Philly? Tiffany's mosaics don't get much attention, but they should.

Hello and happy Friday/long weekend, everyone! This has been a crazy summer. I'm hoping for a less crazy autumn.

Have a safe and spiffy weekend, all. See you soon.

Still here, still working, and wow, I wish I was here instead! Many thanks for Jack for sending this on to me. Stay safe, all.
