Browser tabs, part 2

Looking at these old browser tabs is a bit like wandering through fragments of past thoughts. Or rather fragments of momentary attention (or distraction?). (I’m adding the straight URLs because I sort of think it’s good for people to start looking at URLs again.) – I don’t remember where I first read about Marc Behm, but his book The Eye of the Beholder sounds fascinating. – Looking at the screenshots of this game, In Search of the Most Amazing Thing, makes me think that I played it when I was a kid. What’s even more amazing is that you can just play these right in your browser. – a newsletter gathering together the weirdest news from 100 years ago. I love this idea!, Witch, Burn! is such a better title for this movie. Also, Wikipedia writers are generally terrible writers of plot summaries. They could make any movie sound dull as ditch water. – A list of classic horror stories involving academics. – The best comics of 2019!?! I am late to this party! Hahah. I’ve read a few comics on this list. I think they have pretty good taste. – I only just learned about this local museum early in 2020. I still want to visit it at some point. – Jo Walton has great taste in books. Also, she reads a lot! Check out some of these great suggestions. – I never really got into Goodreads. I think my local library didn’t have this book so I read Kathryn Davis’ The Silk Road instead. I remember very little of it. – I’ve been meaning to read Gretchen McCulloch’s Because Internet about language on the internet for a long time. Maybe this year I’ll get to it.

Whoah, that’s a lot of browser tabs

Here’s some of what I found in my phone’s web browser from 2020: – a blog of original science illustrations. Most recently a medical ventilator. – a pretty good list of fiction podcasts. I’ve listened to a few of them. – He’s thought a lot about the Fantastic Four! This inspired me to read a lot of the Fantastic Four over the last year (or two?). I think he’s got a pretty good take on it. – A review of trilogy of books by Jeffrey Ford called the Well Built City. I liked Ford’s The Empire of Ice Cream and I expect these books are probably worth reading too. Check out this review and see for yourself. Might take a little bit of work to track them down. – A short interview with Jonathan Eburne, author of Outside Theory: Intellectual Histories of Unorthodox Ideas. Sounds like a fascinating book! – A list of cool internet things from the 2010s. A lot of fun, weird stuff in here. – Apparently, The Drover’s Wives is 101 re-interpretations of a classic Australian short story. Fascinating idea!

Oh boy, I’ve got lots more…. Maybe I’ll continue this. Maybe not.
