links mostly updated now. Maybe I will even do monthly archiving.

A celebrity weblogs article, which is all linky linky. via evhead.

::: posted by johnok at 11:53 AM

so a while ago someone came across my weblog while looking for "harper's bizarre." And it turns out there really is a harper's bizarre, albeit in portuguese. I don't know if Harper's Bazaar is, though.

::: posted by johnok at 11:45 AM

I linked all wrong to that famous trials page a while back. sorry about the careless cutting and pasting.

::: posted by johnok at 11:41 AM

the time has come, I think, to reupdate the sidebar, since I am reading so far and wide these days. There are always changes that I've been meaning to make. Like the color scheme, which I have been meaning to change ever since I started using this template.

So there's this ode to seinfeld in salon, which I saw on kottke.org. I saw an episode last night that I hadn't seen before, the episode in which elaine starts hanging out with some new people who are all oddly similar to jerry, george, and kramer. I just found the script right here.

The post had a good article over the weekend about how consumers behave irrationally.

::: posted by johnok at 1:25 PM

Tom Tomorrow has a weblog! I now see it on the blogs of note sidebar, but I saw it before on boing boing.

::: posted by johnok at 1:23 PM

ok, having some problems with my email, to which I usually send my links. But I will be posting nonetheless. It's been very busy around recently, esp at work.

::: posted by johnok at 1:20 PM

Friday, January 25, 2002 :::

no links today. very busy.

Thursday, January 24, 2002 :::

There have been some good lists at mcswys recently — less popular board games and frequently asked questions.

::: posted by johnok at 4:57 PM

Interesting article in the NYT about marketing anthropologists. via peterme.

amazing picture of simultaneous volcanic eruption and aurora borealis. via blogdex but digging through the links a bit.

::: posted by johnok at 10:40 AM

Tuesday, January 22, 2002 :::

the post had a very interesting article in the health section about synesthesia, a condition where people experience sound as a visual sensation (and other similar combinations of the senses)

contrasts.net, another weblog I cam across today, with some photography.

::: posted by johnok at 5:19 PM

oh, some additional gosford park commentary. my sentiments exactly regarding maggie smith and ryan phillipe.

::: posted by johnok at 3:56 PM

I also saw Gosford Park this weekend, which is a very entertaining movie. Maggie Smith's character was my favorite, as she was so delightfully bitchy. Other people must have thought similarly, what with a golden globe nomination for best supporting actress and all.

::: posted by johnok at 1:18 PM

There was an article in this weekend's post about sundance, and one of the more intriguing selections is britney baby, one more time, a documentary of a britney spears impresonator who among other things delights a number of people at an impromptu preformance at a truck stop.

::: posted by johnok at 1:04 PM

Friday, January 18, 2002 :::

boing boing has a good link to disgruntled housewife, which I had forgotten all about. A similar and also very good site (and zine) is mystery date, social satire on dating conventions in the 50s and the like. swell. nifty.

::: posted by johnok at 1:13 PM

Thursday, January 17, 2002 :::

The post has an article on why mr. brady is missing from all that brady memorabilia. On the team, it seems, but the article really only touches on that rather briefly.

::: posted by johnok at 10:08 AM

right now, I am waiting for the full mightybigtv recap from the chicago real world episode. all there is now is a recaplet. I don't get cable, so this is what I live for. I really wonder if they decided to cover the demonstrators, the murder that occurred outside the building, all that. my guess is no.

::: posted by johnok at 9:59 AM

giving credit where credit is due, that zagat link from the other day I saw on brainlog, who got it from anil dash.

::: posted by johnok at 9:53 AM

Tuesday, January 15, 2002 :::

A Famous Trials webpage. A lot of stuff from the 1920s, but also some more recent things, as well as some good old-fashioned civil disobedience.

::: posted by johnok at 2:41 PM

This bunch of zagat outtakes is also somewhat amusing.

::: posted by johnok at 2:32 PM

oh, that call center thing was from pith and vinegar, which I got to from clicking a link from catherine's pita. sorry.

::: posted by johnok at 2:30 PM

Monday, January 14, 2002 :::

So this weekend, I had been meaning to see gosford park, but it was sold out so we saw the royal tenenbaums instead. Good movie, I liked it a lot more than rushmore. Intriguing plot. imdb says it was filmed in nyc, but looks more like philadephia or something. Gwyneth Paltrow was unrecognizable, and also not irritating, which was nice of her. Everyone else was also very good and the characters were generally a good bunch. Not too sure about the wardrobe, though. Oh, and the soundtrack is simply awesome. lots of nico and also a very good elliot smith song, needle in the hay, which I have been singing as I walk down the street.

::: posted by johnok at 11:52 AM

Interesting call center calls, via catherine's pita. I have linked a little bit into the page.

::: posted by johnok at 11:36 AM

Friday, January 11, 2002 :::

oh, elan.org is back up. It's been that way for a while, but I had sort of forgotten.

::: posted by johnok at 11:12 AM

Wednesday, January 09, 2002 :::

This morning's post had a big article in the style section about drag kings. at chaos, down the street from me, no less.

::: posted by johnok at 9:28 AM

So, I finally saw the Lord of the Rings. Actually, I saw it last week, but I've been Very Busy. General Thoughts - on the whole, pretty good. There did seem to be an awful lot of foreshadowing, but I guess that was necessary for those who hadn't read the book it was necessary. Ian McKellen was excellent, and I was glad to see Christopher Lee's character given a bit more in the storyline, just because villains are always more interesting. Oh, and I saw this on librarystuff -- it seems that Tolkein's manuscripts, which I assumed were tucked away in some dusty corner of England somewhere, are actually in Milwaukee.

::: posted by johnok at 9:25 AM

Tuesday, January 08, 2002 :::

Oh, the university of georgia has scanned in old maps, including this neat one. nice drawing of a turkey in north carolina.

::: posted by johnok at 1:40 PM

Oh, it seems that many have received wonderful gifts from those people over at archie mcphee, which sells fezzes, miniature trash cans and assorted novelty items of interest. complete with pictures of happy, sometimes reubenesque models enjoying said products in all their glory.

::: posted by johnok at 1:35 PM

so today there was a link from boing boing to an article about a donut chain in canada that has banned children from its shops in response to a smoking ban on places that admit children. rather interesting way of dealing with the issue.

::: posted by johnok at 1:33 PM

oh, it seems blogger is having some issues.

::: posted by johnok at 1:20 PM

I still haven't really posted about my vacation aside from some brief remarks, but I'm getting there.

::: posted by johnok at 11:23 AM

Thursday, January 03, 2002 :::

While I'm on my scandinavia kick and before I forget, there are some norwegian newspapers online - aftenposten, morgenbladet. Oh, and der spiegel for german. I really just want to put these on the sidebar, but am too lazy right now.

::: posted by johnok at 11:58 AM

oh, neat new weblog. Librarystuff.net. will surf.

::: posted by johnok at 11:53 AM

The national archives has put up a rather interesting assortment of design drawings from american history. Although it is somewhat militaristic for my taste. But there's some designs for the capitol and other things as well. this from the resource shelf.

::: posted by johnok at 11:51 AM

and now back to linking. Bifurcated Rivets linked to virtual oslo some time ago, and as I am contemplating a trip to scandinavia sometime I found it pretty helpful.

::: posted by johnok at 11:49 AM

So, back from chicago now. The trip was quite nice, I saw all the old haunts, although not everything was open that I wanted to go to. But still, I had a good time.
