  • David Chute posts a 2000 piece dealing with film preservation and digitization.
  • What would Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau think? (H/T Michael Castañeda)
  • Was Blue Öyster Cult the first non-German band to use an umlaut in its name? Wikipedia suggests so. What a weird little tradition the “metal umlaut” is. What are the chances it doesn’t derive from beer-loving rock dudes admiring the labels on German brews? Wikipedia says Mötley Crüe got the idea from Löwenbräu.
  • Choose your own adventure. (H/T Reddit.)
  • Lovely vintage train posters by designer Bern Hill.
  • I’ve gotten a kick out of “Radish,” the newsletter put out by The Thomas Carlyle Club for Young Reactionaries. It’s full of sweet, sweet hatethink. Here’s the latest issue, which deals with the topic of colonialism. (H/T Foseti.)
  • Book appraisin’ super honey Rebecca Romney gets interviewed by a heavy metal site.
  • There’s lots of evocative, confessional, girl-type writing at Thought Catalog. I liked this post about bricks.
  • For some reason, I’m fascinated by ruins and abandoned places. Here’s a nice collection of photos.
  • Critic Steve Vineberg touches on a lot of the things that have bothered me about P. T. Anderson’s movies. Terrific piece. I didn’t find “The Master” to be as awful as he did, though. While I can’t say I loved it, I liked it more than “There Will Be Blood,” which struck me as being almost completely empty. Handsome, but empty.
  • Libertarian, hacker, and open source advocate Eric S. Raymond engages in a thought experiment.
  • More from Raymond: What if all the ludicrous crap our ancestors believed in had some basis in reality? I’ve often wondered this myself. Generally speaking, I think it’s nuts when modern folks act like people from past centuries were idiotic buffoons.
