"America's Most Popular Music Scenes"

According to this L.A. is the place to go. 

"Are these the ugliest buildings in the world?"

Some of 'em sure are.

"Parental Guidance"

Coming Christmas. Starring Billy Crystal and Marisa Tomei. Looks like it could be good.

(Though Hollywood has perfected the art of trailers: recently it seems the best two minutes of movies I've seen are all in the trailers.)

Two from Foodspin

"How To Make Nachos: A Guide For The Daring".

"What To Eat With The Best Hot Sauce In The World: A Guide For People Who Aren’t Anti-Sriracha Bores".

"Fly Through Space with 100,000 Stars"

New from Google.

This is a lovely browser-based app that plots the nearest 100,000 stars to the Sun in 3-D space. You can zoom in and out, fly around, and get more info on specific stars by clicking their names as they pop up. You can even zoom way out to see where our solar neighborhood is with respect to the rest of the Milky Way galaxy (though that part is not using actual data for visualization).

"Feeling good about oneself comes first"

Professor Peter Gordon notes a sad--if predictable--side effect of the health care law. And then he nails our friendly social do-gooders a good one.

But, hey, underemployed folks, cheer up: as a number of bad people have argued, "You can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs."

 

"Meet the High Priest of Runaway College Inflation"

This is the guy to blame, former president of my alma mater. 

"Revealed: The Grubby World of Comment Spam"

I've had to deal with this a little and it's annoying

Two MBA-related links

"Why Nearly One of Four MBAs from USC is Jobless".

"This Wharton MBA Plans His Days Down To The Minute".

Canadians tend to be nice. Very nice.

Stephen Colbert calls Windsor, Canada "Earth's rectum."

They invite him to lead this year's Christmas parade
