Today's Post has a fascinating article about DC's Gay and Lesbian Police Unit.

tangentially discovered during my research project, from the New York Times, December 16, 1921:

San Francisco, Dec. 15--Mrs. Aimee Crocker-Ashe-Gillig-Gouraud-Miskinoff, or Mrs. Amy Gouraud, began her matrimonial adventures in San Francisco. Two Rivals, Porter Ashe and Henry Gillig, played cards for her, it is said, Ashe winning with four aces. A divorce was issued a year later and she married Gillig, who obtained a divorce a few years later.

In Europe some years later she and her daughter met two brothers, Jackson and Powers Gouraud. Mrs. Gillig married Jackson and his brother eloped with Gladys. In June, 1914, formal announcement was made in London of the marriage of Mrs. Gouraud to Alexandre Miskinoff, known as a prince.

A Salon interview with Dave Eggers, spotted over at the prolific kottke.org. It is therein revealed that he is writing a screenplay for Where the Wild Things Are, in tandem with Spike Jonze.

the morning news has put up a photoessay on hair salons, including this photo of a kid unhappily getting a haircut.

This blog is starting to be a repository for american studies blog post rejects. generally sense I'm trying to keep the other blog ultraserious for a little while until it can lighten up and have a few drinks. So until then links like the postmodern essay generator will have to wait. my friend lars points out similar text generators loitering online.

check out these fab OS X menu bar items!, first spotted over at bifurcated rivets!

In other news, I have a very large research project that I'm trying to work on and I'm coming across a lot of red herrings, false leads, resources and archives that seem like they might be useful but then are useless, or archives that seem like they might be useful but only if I spend weeks and weeks poring over everything they have. more developments to follow if they rear their ugly heads.

so it turns out the series wonderfalls is out on dvd, with some episode commentary and a bunch of unaired episodes included. I was disappointed when it got cancelled and am happy to see it resurrected in dvdland.

dcist links to this interesting visual interaction analysis of the washington post's website, and I have to say that they are spot-on in their discussion of the lower sections - whenever I'm trying to find a restaurant review or movie showtime and can never find the link even though I'm staring right at it.

check out these neat photos of letters and numbers found via flickr tags. Seen at bradlands.

for some reason, among the gawker empire string of blogs I neglected to notice the extremely useful lifehacker, which is sort of like hints from heloise, but actually useful. and interesting. I found links to the useful mac os hints, how to rename files in bulk for mac and suggestions for using gmail for to-do lists.

Normally when I get my new yorker, I ignore the fiction, which tends to be rather tedious and dull. I think it's mainly because a non-fiction article purports to be about some particular topic and if that topic interests you, then you will read the article and be satisfied as long as it's well written. Not so short stories. but the february 28, 2005 New Yorker is an exception - I read the story by Aleksandar Hemon (I forget the title) - and it was very very good. loved it.
