You guys sent me some excellent links in recent days, so here they are.

First, from Fredrik Skarstedt (and others), is a link to Dylan Hears a Who. How would Bob Dylan sound if he recorded an album of Dr. Seuss material? Well, this is your chance to find out, and it's hilarious. Have a look (the album art is fantastic, too) and a listen here.

Sirius sent me a link to some stunning images of Saturn. See them here.

Kwadwo Burgee sent me a link to the "50 Greatest Local TV Commercials." There are some real classics, and you can view any or all of them here.

I'm listening to "Dylan" sing Green Eggs and Ham as I write this, and damn, it's funny.

Ryan Shalek lent a link to Worldmapper. Here's a description:
Worldmapper is a collection of world maps, where territories are re-sized on each map according to the subject of interest.

There are hundreds of different maps to browse, and they provide a very interesting look at all kinds of topics. Take a look here.

Geoff Engelstein sent me a link to a fascinating article about how studying the history of lice is helping us understand the history of man (and other species as well). It's an excellent read, and it's here.

One more time: that Dylan link is hilarious.
