Friday Links XLIV

“In feature films the director is God; in documentary films God is the director.”
– Alfred Hitchcock

Hi!  Sorry, just got back from a documentary screening, but I couldn’t possibly leave you hanging.  That wouldn’t be in the spirit of the season at all. To the links:

North Korea – your ability to to be laughably insane and tragically oppressive never ceases to amaze me.

His Holiness is now…on Twitter.  I’m not sure what to think of this.

This is a great documentary I caught on PBS a while back, well worth a look in by anyone who is interested in the history of televised entertainment.

Christmas is coming, and I can only assume that a few of you, like myself, are scrambling for some last minute gifts.  Have no fear, stationery to the rescue!  Seriously, I am coveting several of those stamps…there are some really cute things here.

‘Tis also the season for Christmas jumpers, enjoy Topman’s offerings.

I’m not counting down the days until I can wander around London again or anything, no not at all…
