Friday Links (Jill of All Trades, Edition)

“God sells us all things at the price of labor.”
― Leonardo da Vinci

I decided to give up stress for Lent and a good thing too, since as of this week I’m helping to organise a major event in Dubai, and shipping stuff to Russia for another event while avoiding accusations of espionage, and tracking down collateral from Hong Kong, and sourcing six new design companies for different kinds of products, and reviewing art from a prominent illustrator, and wrangling advertisement campaigns, and proposing budget expansions to investors, and learning some of the financial ins and outs of Sharia law.

Hand on heart, kittens, not a word of this is exaggeration.

Here are your links, tell me what you’re up to in the comments!

Hello, boys.

Of course they are. I’m only surprised it took so long.

Book covers in the US vs. their counterparts from the Netherlands.

It’s a bit silly how funny I found this.

I’ve been thinking a lot about how to get my work fashion back on point after a year and a half of freelancing. Jeff summed it up thusly,  “Sorry, love, I think you’ve got to wear heels again.” With that in mind

Striking pictures from the permafrost.

An interesting and through-provoking piece on ISIS. Worth reading to understand at least some of the mindset and motivations, which the article argues is necessary to engaging with or overcoming it as a movement.

Haunting gallery.

Over on Broadside, Caitlin Kelly is laying down some truth about freelancing, temping, or otherwise hustling. “Forget the word freelance. You run a small business.”

Ooook-lahoma, where the AP history is no more! Apparently because it was insufficiently patriotic and tackled the less than stellar points of the nation’s history. America, I have a harder and harder time explaining you over here.

Tumblr find of the week.

It’s nice to know my medieval history knowledge will help me should I need to turn to prostitution in desperation. (Seriously, this is a thing?!)
