Friday Links

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
― L.M. Montgomery

Another week, another weekend approaches! It’s been a somewhat slow one, which has left some time for other schemes and projects, some of which are bearing fruit nicely. How’s that for vague?

However, they still require my attention so here are you links. Add anything else worth knowing in the comments, and tell me what you’re getting up to this weekend. I’m hoping to snag some tickets to the Westminster Abbey choir’s Christmas concerts (good grief, it is that time of year), scout some new work potentials, and sorting (still!) through photos of our recent travels and excursions. I’m never going to catch up…

Tumblr find of the week.

h/t to Katarina who found this while wasting time on the internet and immediately it with me.

Breakfast is a many splendid thing.

Why books and literature are important. A big topic boiled down.

Let’s pretend grinding student debt isn’t a thing, okay? How gorgeous are these?

Goodness…this is a thorough explanation!

Kate Beaton’s latest Hark, a vagrant! post pretty much made my week.

The oldest piece of art in the world.

The mantua-makers of Colonial Williamsburg show us how the big hair of the late 18th century was actually done. One word: bump-its. Nothing is new under the sun.

Fascinating look at the relationship between the ballet and high fashion.

The big new in feminism is my old stomping grounds, Utah. Specifically Utah State University and a violent threat. I cannot for the life of me understand the mind that can logically hold this thought: “Video games don’t cause men to be violent to women and if you don’t stop saying they do, I’ll kill you, bitch.”
