Information Overlord’s Weekend Reading 12/16 – 12/18

I am the Information Overlord. Check out the links. Especially the last one.

Here are a few links in case you’re in need of some weekend reading.  It’s especially pleasant during Sunday brunch (for those of you who aren’t satisfied with three meals a day).

The ideologically wily Christopher Hitchens died this week.  Here’s what the Guardian said about his passing.

Considering Men’s Health, a bastion of journalistic excellence, recently named St. Pete to be one of the saddest places in the US, I thought many in the area might find this public installation interesting.  Its called Stimmungsgasometer.  If that doesn’t clear up what it is, I’ll just say that St. Pete would be flying a constant smiley.  I found it here at the Huffington Post.

One of my favorite Art blogs, Artwrit, just released they’re eighth quarterly issue.  This is the second of a very interesting two part series in praise of boredom.  Its a little cerebral, so if you actually get bored reading it you can at least enjoy the irony of your situation.

Here’s an article on Cedric Delsaux’s really interesting work involving Star Wars characters in everyday locations.  The artist has some very interesting things to say about the play between “reality” and “fiction”.  And there is a cool picture of the Millennium Falcon.
