Friday Links!This is always one of our lightest weeks of the year, so go watch a football game. Or something.
From Wallace, and this is truly an excellent read: Academic urban legends. Also, and this is fascinating: Texts, 2015. Next, and this is just beautiful: Ode to Joy by large Matryomin ensemble.
From Marc Klein, and I was lucky enough to see both of these guys in their absolute prime: THE BIG 4-0 Tiger, Jack, and the cost of remaining great after 40.
From Jesse Leimkuehler, and this is astonishing: This Chinese city is completely abandoned and makes for incredible photography.
From Todd Robinson, and this is brilliantly demented: Ambitious angler outfits his fishing boat for skating.
From Steven Davis, and this is amazing: Magical container for a Japanese Automaton. Next, and this is truly spectacular: A Carved Graphite Train on Tracks Emerges from Inside a Carpenter’s Pencil. One more, and Shakespeare nerd alert: Shakespeare's 74 death scenes in a single play more gory than Game of Thrones.
