Friday Links!

We're light this week because I've seen sick since Monday afternoon and haven't been able to bottom out yet, so I'm behind on e-mail. There is still some excellent reading to be had, though.

Leading off, from Chris Pencis, and this is the coolest music relational database I've ever seen. It's good for hours of investigation: Every Noise At Once.

Next, and you'll see TEGLM with lots of links later as well, an amazing story: Love and Madness in the Jungle.

From Alexander Ignatiev, and this is pretty wonderful: The Minds Behind Dwarf Fortress.

From hippo, and I guess "exceptionalism" means "cannibalism":Skeleton of teenage girl confirms cannibalism at Jamestown colony.

From The Edwin Garcia Links Machine, and these are fantastic: A Rare Glimpse of Leonardo da Vinci's Anatomical Drawings. Also, and this is quite a glimpse into the past, it's Kurt Vonnegut to John F. Kennedy: "On Occasion, I Write Pretty Well." Next, and I want one of these, it's Building the Bomber Cam With 3D Printing and Scraps. One more, and it's beautiful: Shanghai Sidecar Riders. Last one, and it's fantastic: This is What Happens When You Give Thousands of Stickers to Thousands of Kids.

From Darrel Raines, and of course this happened in Texas: Texas judge issues double-entendre-filled ruling in strip club case.

From Steven Davis, and this is unfortunate: The Thorncrown Chapel, an Idyllic Glass Chapel in Rural Arkansas is Under Threat. ALso, and this is amazing, it's Trace What You See: The NeoLucida is the First Portable Camera Lucida to be Manufactured in Nearly a Century.

This could be very useful: The Scientific 7-Minute Workout.

From Gridiron Solitaire Artist Fredrik Skarstedt, and this is incredibly depressing:Highest Paid Public Employees By State. If you're thinking "football coaches", you're right.
