Various and sundry

It’s officially summer, which means it’s the busy season at work and Irish Fest coordination has begun in earnest. It also means I have a little less time for blog-tending. However, thanks to the magic of del.icio.us, I’ve found some links that’ll keep you entertained for a bit and possibly help you overlook the fact I’m not paying as much attention to you all as I should be:

- Lovely and creative calendar designs. Not all are terribly practical, but the majority of them sure are pretty.

- Troy McClure’s resume on IMDb. You may know him from such films as…

- Entertainment Weekly’s list of New Classic Books, their selection of the 100 best reads from 1983 to 2008. I can’t believe I’ve only read 10 of them (though there are quite a few I own but haven’t gotten to yet). I’ve seen a bunch of movie adaptations of some of the ones I haven’t read, though. Can I count that? (No. I didn’t think so, either.)

- Wonderful old photos of New York in both b&w and color (and one sneaky shot of Philly, just to see if you’re paying attention). I love the brief non-urban intermission in the middle of the images. Very amusing.

Enjoy the links. I’ll find more tidbits for you when I have the chance.

You and I are both at 10. Could scanning a few count for something? Can we do fractions? This is a nice list to have when looking for something to read…

Gosh, must be nice to just do that Irish Fest stuff on a part time basis……

I can count 12. I wonder why that particular one of the seven Potter books is the classic. Also, if The Da Vinci Code made it, how about Angels and Demons?

Seriously? No Lord of the Rings, yet Harry Potter makes it.

Oops, my bad, misread that, thought it said 1938. Nevermind then.

Glenn — I did the same thing at first and then couldn’t figure how so many great books got missed.
