Links And Things: April 13th 2012

Very brief one this time around, I’m afraid.

Do you have a Tumblr blog? If so, you should be following TextFromDog. Even if you don’t have a Tumblr, you should still head over and check it out. It’s a very simple concept –guy gets text messages from his dog– but it’s some of the funniest stuff I’ve seen in a long, long time. I highly recommend it.

The latest “Walkthrough” to be featured over at AVClub.Com, is all about one of my favorite short-lived television series: Freaks & Geeks. They sit down with the hilarious Paul Feig, who talks about every single episode of the show. It’s a long read, but well worth it if you’re a fan of the show. It’s separated into five parts:

Part Five

This is amazing:

“The Global Pursuit of Happiness, or: The Army of Luck” is an art installation of 520 Japanese Maneki Neko cat figurines (the waving cats found at many Asian businesses). Their waving arms are equipped with servomotors and wired together, creating a 40 by 13 cat matrix display that can show patterns or even scrolling text (video). The installation was created by German artist Boris Petrovsky and debuted last month at the Art Karlsruhe festival in Germany.

The great Alan Moore in an gave a sit down interview to BBC’s Hard Talk.

Part One:

Part Two:

Much more interesting post next time. I hope.

Biographical information? I was born 37 years ago. I've lived a little here and there since then. I do not look forward to death. Biographical enough for you?
