Wednesday Walk Around the Web – 04/09/2014


Welcome to the Wednesday Walk Around the Web, where we weave & wind through weblinks weekly. Here you may find some things that amuse, some that titillate, and the occasional link that provokes. Do you have a link you want to see featured in next week’s Wednesday Walk? Email Glenn!

  • Over 250 art books are available for free download from the Getty Museum.
  • One Man, One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, Two Nunchucks.
  • You may be able to treat depression with special K. But don’t hold your breath.
  • One intrepid researcher took it upon himself to experimentally verify the worst places on your body to get stung by a bee. They’re what you’d expect, but the man’s dedication is amazing. (Warning: huge picture of a bee up top.)
  • Someone please come and replace my floors with Escher-inspired iguana tiling.
  • You can do quite a lot with rotoscoped sticks.
  • There’s a real-life group of vigilante heroes, and they’re thousands of women in India.
  • If you’re looking for a hopping coffee place in Seoul, try Dunkin Donuts.
  • Do you have a lot of apples to peel? Try a power drill! It’s neat how many culinary tasks can be made better with power tools.
  • Get maximum crust on your burger. Think you have enough crust? You do not have enough crust. Make a burger that is 100% crust. It’s the right time to get crust.
  • This Week in Magnified Images: vinyl records.
  • A British couple invited Queen Elizabeth to their wedding almost as a prank, and then she showed up.
  • Get on board with slow TV before this rocket really takes off. Netflix’s Yule Log was a particularly convenient background element this past December.
  • You have a skeleton inside of you. You do. And it wants out.

Glenn is not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be. He goes forward, he goes back. The Glenn that you know, he had some second thoughts. Glenn has come back to reclaim some infinitude of silence, the unspeaking of his name. At PTBN he's most often seen walking the web, covering the Star Trek beat, and podcasting about various manifestations of life and popular culture. Find him elsewhere on the Twitter, the Instam and/or the Tumblr. Tamp 'em up solid.
