Taken from castallia's meme:

If you would like me to post links related to your interests, comment below. If you don't have any interests listed in LJ, or you are not an LJ member, go ahead and comment, and list a few of your interests. I'll see what I can do. No promises they will all be done before Christmas, but I will try.

Nothing wrong with it, but you probably already have most of the good links on Douglas Lain. Hmm. I'll have to think about this one.

Hmm, while I worked on the Doug Lain links, I perused your LJ interests.

You probably already saw this frightening proof of a false Valis. If not, note the slogan: VALIS International is Proud to be part of a new era in International Commerce and One World Mentality.

Libraries, eh? Ever wondered what might have been contained in the ancient Library of Alexandria? Or perhaps you'd be interested in the modern Bibliotheca Alexandrina?

More links will follow. Getting late.

I am interested in cutting edge literary/spec-fic/slipstream publishers.

I am interested in classic film noir.

I am interested in Warren Ellis, and his obsessions with techno-gadgets and networked devices as tools for the dissemination of art and culture.

I am interested in thanking you for two months of paid live journal status. What can I do not that I have 'paid' status, btw?

Tricky, tricky.

I confess I was unfamiliar with Warren Ellis until you mentioned him, so I am assuming you have better links already than anything I can dig up this fast. However, you might find IBVA interesting. This is a device which allows you to wirelessly control many devices with your brain waves and/or pick up electronic inputs such as brain waves, sounds, and neuromuscular movements to output to other devices. It has been attached to plants to make music. It has been used to make abstract art from the dreams of sleeping subjects. The website does an incredibly poor job of explaining what it can do, but when I called them about a headset for my cat to websurf, they told me "That's easy."

Film noir:
Check out sample essays from the Film Noir Reader
Material about the ending of "Kiss Me, Deadly" can be found here.
I highly recommend to any noir fan:
Gun, with Occasional Music
and also Motherless Brooklyn, which features a detective with Tourette's syndrome.
You've probably read them, and possibly also When Gravity Fails and the rest of the series, but you might have missed Effinger's last uncompleted work in Budayeen Nights.

Hope something in there is new/useful. Oh, and you can now have more user pictures, post using your smart phone, and have galleries. You can check out friends of friends, and do more directory searches. There are more templates for your journal you can access. There's a Faq in the Paid Accounts area. Sorry for the update, messed a tag there.

Those library of Alexandria links you posted above are amazingly cool. :) I'd like a few links, please, if it isn't too much trouble (no rush on the time). :)


Maybe something on modern art, or mythology? Take care.

Wow, those links are going to keep me busy for quite some time! Thank you so much! I've never seen the Lichtenstein painting you linked to before now. The Borges essay and the food of fairytales links look especially interesting. Thanks again ; this is far beyond anything I expected. :)


And Merry Christmas! :)

Well, I just received 10 awesome links from castallia that I haven't had time to explore yet, but if you have the time in the coming days then...SURE!! I'll be curious to see what you come up with.

BTW, I really like "The Tree" in the Fractals gallery. Spindly things make me feel good. :)

Happy Holidays,

The Hearn link I think I had an extra = in there you'll need to remove. It's odd since I tested them all earlier. Ah well. I was never the whiz with html.

Not a problem. BTW: thanks to you, I've been able to give my LJ a facelift!

Just thought I'd drop by to say that I had some time to go through these links in a more leisurely fashion today and to thank you once again for compiling them on my behalf. The info. on Ngugi and Leonora Carrington in particular piqued my interest (though the latter site had so many annoying pop-ups I eventually gave up on it, sadly...) That P.K.D. novel sounds pretty interesting as well--I have a lot of catching up to do on books. Can you believe that I'm reading Crime and Punishment for the first time ever right now? I did a paper on Dostoevsky's "Notes from the Underground" in college, yet its taken me all this time to get around to reading C&P...

Best,
~m
