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.)
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marc_Behm – I don’t remember where I first read about Marc Behm, but his book The Eye of the Beholder sounds fascinating.
https://www.myabandonware.com/game/in-search-of-the-most-amazing-thing-2c – 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.
https://strangetimes.substack.com/ – a newsletter gathering together the weirdest news from 100 years ago. I love this idea!
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_of_the_Eagle – Burn, 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.
https://www.sublimehorror.com/books/the-haunted-academic-reading-list/ – A list of classic horror stories involving academics.
https://www.comicsbeat.com/the-best-comics-of-2019/ – 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.
http://www.zymoglyphic.org/galleries.html – I only just learned about this local museum early in 2020. I still want to visit it at some point.
https://www.tor.com/2020/02/05/jo-waltons-reading-list-january-2020/ – Jo Walton has great taste in books. Also, she reads a lot! Check out some of these great suggestions.
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/76485.Hell – 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.
https://gretchenmcculloch.com/writing/ – 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.
