Feed for March 2005

Silence Is A Rhythm Too. Fine music blog.

Amazing Miracle Jesus Meteorite. Yours for only 250 grand—“not a joke or a hoax” (via Disturbing Auctions Daily).

Lurgi Strikes Britain. This bit of it, anyway. Bleurgh...

They’re turning out milksops: “If the government has any business interfering with family life ... they should be going into middle-class homes, dragging kids outside, blindfolding them and dropping them off in the middle of a forest.”

Guy Browning’s Matchbox Cars. More ’70s nostalgia—missing the battered photos from the original article, but still amusing.

John Wagner interviewed. This won’t mean much to anyone who didn’t read 2000 A.D. from 1978-1982, but I’ve been reading some reprints I picked up cheap last week (Judge Dredd, ABC Warriors; can’t wait for this). Amazing how many individual panels are imprinted on my memory.

Craig Raine on the power of words: “Mkgnao is not a proper word, runs the objection. To which there is an answer: it is now.”

Wes Anderson profiled in the Graun. The Life Aquatic is brilliant, in case you haven’t seen it yet.

Drawn! A collaborative blog for “anyone who likes to draw”.

Dombo interviews Graeme Garden. One of the fun things about being in the UK is hearing the ex-Goodies pop up on various Radio 4 comedy quizzes.

CiteULike: del.icio.us for online papers. Every academic blogger seems to be linking to this, so I will too.

The Speedysnail Feeds will be working a bit differently this year. Main entries only, brief links only, or both in one.
