A Chart of Emotions that Have No Names in the English Language

This was in a run of checking and finding interesting stuff on IO9 I guess. Title gives it away.

Science Confessions

Can’t remember were I first saw this but a load of working/studying scientists confess via twitter to cutting the odd corner.

Star Wars Reading

I can’t remeber how I found this but I’m a huge fan over reading too much into things, this is a brilliant example of this.

Robin Hood article

A really interesting article on the journey the most recent Robin Hood movie took from the page to production.

Zappa on the music business

Frank Zappa talking about the music business. I don’t agree with everything he says or everything he’s said, or everything he did or that he should’ve even released some of the albums that he did but he did do a lot and at least he was an intelligent person giving their considered opinion.

Alan Moore

I showed up very late to the Alan Moore party but after seeing Watchman first and then reading it I was converted, it seems to me that much like Steve Albini he’s often portrayed as some curmudgeon decrying everything as wrong when in fact they just happen to have a set of beliefs and live their life obeying them, quite happily too, but that doesn’t make for a good soundbite, I think this comes across in this interview. I’ve also heard him talking on various Robin Ince vehicles and he’s very funny.
