  1. Hulu - Metropolitan

    Whit Stillman has put his first film, ‘Metropolitan’, up on Hulu for free viewing. But, like the rest of Hulu, it only works in the US.

  2. The Question of Global Warming - The New York Review of Books

    I found this Freeman Dyson article interesting because it isn’t written from one of the two usual polar extremes of the global warming arguments.

  3. The Online 78 rpm Discographical Project

    Detailed information about thousands of 78 RPM recordings. I love the Internet.

  4. My Collection of Recorded 78 RPM Records - Free MP3 Downloads

    Currently 3,739 free MP3s ripped from one guy’s 78rpm records. That’s a lot of listening. (via Boing Boing)

  5. Stone Cold Pimpin’: NASA’s Forgotten Ambient Albums

    “Space music” from 1992: “raw, uncatalogued space sounds data … we selected random information from the raw data and processed it to produce ‘Symphonies of the Planets’”. Ambient “music”.

  6. LRB · letters page from Vol. 30 No. 14

    The ‘10’ on 10 Downing Street’s front door is Trajan, with an upper case ‘O’ instead of a zero.

  7. TheWashCycle: The Myth of the Scofflaw Cyclist

    I think decriminalising cyclists jumping red lights could, possibly, work. But until that happens: don’t. That simple. Enough of the moaning and self-justification. (via Blech)

    "I'll just do that quick blog post," I said. Nearly two hours ago. Must remember how long these things take.

    Last day here and had to snooze away a headache this afternoon. But now off to meet Eric and family for Chinese.
