- One of the Food Dude's contributors has an interesting take on bad restaurant service. My reason for flagging this post, however, is the phoenetic spelling of the rude waiter's French accent. Good stuff.
- ExtraMSG posted this tidbit about Astoria making its way into the New York Times.
- Record Store Geek brought this gem to my attention - a website that will sing for you. And who doesn't need that?
- I haven't even read the rest of the "tricks to teach your body" that William Bragg refers to, but the one he's highlighted is worth a giggle all on its own.
- The folks at Damn Interesting are full of, well, damn interesting stuff. Among them - memory research at the University of Oregon, a story that's not for the arachnophobic, and this bit that defies synopsizing.
- James Tata beats me to the punch on this New York Times article on the Pantheon. It's a building I loved beyond explanation. The only reason I could ever come up with was the feeling that so many feet had walked on the very stones I was walking. In too many places (for understandable reasons, of course) the actual historic sites are roped off and beyond reach. At the Pantheon, you're free to walk on the beautiful marble floor - just as people did when it was built. That kind of stuff sends chills up my spine, seriously.
