Irregular Roundup #7

This is the kind of thing that makes me love history. Looking Into the Past, a set of photos on Flickr that takes old photos and puts them over… well, just go look. It’s really cool. Past and Present, all in one. Really neat.

After watching two and a half seasons of House M.D. in less than a week (EDIT: as of 24 June, I’m well into season 5), it’s just like me to become fascinated with walking canes. Of all the things on the show I could obsess over, of course it’s the cane. (Also, as a side note, I think I’ve figured out why Bennett likes House so much; he thinks he is House. *headdesk*)

The Midwest Teen Sex Show is pretty awesome. (It’s sex ed with Midwest flair.) Just thought I’d mention that.

I saw Cheer New York at the AIDS Walk last year, but I didn’t think to look them up until recently when I’ve been having trouble finding colorguards and winterguards on this coast. (Fail.)

Bunny found Groupon (Group + coupon) while visiting me in NY and sent me a link, and now I’m passing it on to you all.

This post by mousapelli absolutely cracks me up; Japan is the awesomest country on the planet, hands down. (The link involves jporn but is hilariously safe for work, so don’t worry.)

While at Wilkes for my 616 residency, I discovered Memoir (and), which is a journal for nonfiction, and New Pages—“good reading starts here”—where I can go for reviews of all types of literary journals.

OMG LIFE-SIZE GUNDAM!

What do dominant women want? and the alternate piece: 8 things submissive men want from a dominant partner. Even more taboo is a pro-incest rant on YouTube and an article in Time from early 1980. I’m pretty open-minded, but the last two are more inflammatory than most things I support. Even if I did support incest (under the circumstances laid out in the YouTube link), it’d be pretty stupid for me to admit that. I forget that people read this, but I don’t forget that often.
