… there's a shorthand typist taking seconds over minutes:
We made the WSJ's "Best of the Web Today" by submitting
this headline from Foster's Daily Democrat:
Contaminants not found at former Farmington auto trim siteA Bottom Story of the Day. But BOTWT aficionados know that they just haven't Looked in the Last Place yet.
Oliver Hirschbiegel, director of Downfall, is
OK with all the parodies of the
Adolf-gets-bad-news bunker scene in his movie: "You couldn't get a
better compliment as a director."
And I'm sure you've asked yourself what happens if you search YouTube for "Hitler finds out".
All this makes me wish I'd liked Downfall more.
Rene's Apple is a new addition to the blogroll.
The proprietor has thrown me some links, much appreciated. (As are
longtime linkers Skip and Amy.)
But Rene's Apple has a neat bookshelf display, and two of the authors thereon are Walker Percy and Keith Laumer. Which kind of dropped my jaw; there might be some other folks with similar tastes, but I bet not many.
Speaking of books, here's someone's idea of The
100 Greatest Science Fiction or Fantasy Novels of All Time. Lots of
good memories there; I was surprised by how many I'd read.
On the other hand, there's no Zelazny. (Or, for that matter, no Laumer.) So it's wedged.
