Weekend Linkroll

Another Sunday has rolled around. The last not-frigid day for a while. We’ll be reaching highs of 5 degrees by Wednesday up here. Yes, climate change is to blame. Joy.

So, while I can still feel my fingers, I have links to share.

Food and Wine Thursdays: Wine Aromas
I’ve mentioned my dislike of gatekeepers, right? The Satellite Show has the same opinion when it comes to wine.

The Mystery of the Third Step
Ellis Nelson ponders George Mallory’s attempt to climb Mt. Everest. Did he get there before Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzin Norgay? Maybe!

Six Words Can’t Possible Contain Her
An interesting exercise from A Thousand Shades of Gray. “What is next? Anything is possible.”

$150k Goal: Interview with Amber Benson: Authorship, Indie Film, and Erotica
Patrick Rothfuss interviews Amber Benson. Fun things happen.

The Morgenthaler Decision
Twenty-five years of real legal abortion in Canada, and the sky didn’t fall! Interesting website. Especially the page discussing the benefits of decriminalizing abortion and the harm anti-abortion laws can cause. Happy anniversary, Dr. Morgentaler!

New report shows how the principle of “personhood” is already criminalizing pregnancy in the US
However, here in the U.S., we’re still missing the boat and women are being treated as criminals for it. Thanks to Feministing for the link.

But let’s finish this week on a positive note…

In Which I, John Scalzi, Sing a Lost Bob Dylan Song For Jay Lake
Scalzi does a surprisingly good Bob Dylan, and this “lost” Dylan song is classic.

Happy Holidays, everyone, whatever you celebrate this time of year! Belated Happy Hanukkah and Solstice! We finally have some snow here in Vermont, so it’s not looking so damned gloomy outside anymore. The brown ground and grey skies were starting to get to me.

So, links. Hope you enjoy.

Writer’s High
Empty Pen and endorphins. It’s an awesome feeling when you get that nagging scene right.

So You Want to Read PKD? Here’s Some Help.
SJ over at Snobbery has created an amazing flowchart to help you figure out which Philip K. Dick story you should read next. Personally, with Substitution Cipher just out, I’m hankering to reread The Man in the High Castle.

Day of Rest
Feeling frazzled? A Thousand Shades of Grey shares some thoughts (and great quotations) on the rightness of being yourself. “The message is sending me a universe.”

Possible habitable zone planet is a mere 12 light years away
Tau Ceti, eh? A lot of science fiction has happened there because it’s so close to us (relatively). Will there be spider people? Romulans? Barbarella? Time will tell.

Hasbro to unveil gender neutral Easy-Bake Oven
Thanks to McKenna Pope’s change.org petition for her little brother. It’s about time.

Michigan cousins go after crayfish, hook a mastodon
“The ‘coolest’ show-and-tell item anyone’s ever brought to the sixth grade.”

Weekend Linkroll

Another Sunday has arrived, with an extra hour thrown in just for fun. I have no more excuses for blowing off my weekly collection of links (the cat’s still dead, story’s submitted, and day-job deadlines have been met), so let’s see what the Internet held this past week.

And just as an administrative note: I don’t engage with trolls; I delete them with no small amount of glee. If you’re going to comment with random insults in response to a contest that ended several days ago, in the trash you go. Buh-bye.

On to this week’s links… Continue reading
