The SF Signal Podcast (Episode 141): Cherie Priest, Jay Lake, Gail Carriger, Paul Di Fillipo, Phillipa Ballantine and Tee Morris Talk Steampunk

The Rule of Names — Aliette de Bodard on the perils of cross-cultural naming. (Snurched from Cora Buhlert.)

Pop Tarts: Which flavor Reigns Supreme?Jersey Girl in Portland with her own comments on the Pop-Tart issue. [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] See also The Pop Tarts World Store, courtesy of [info]danjite.

First Driving Lesson — A video from yesterday's Washington and Oregon coast ramble. Shot by me on my iPhone, produced by Waterloo Productions. Hahahah.

Howl’s Moving Castle in Shockingly Good Papercraft Form — This is pretty neat. (Thanks to [info]willyumtx.)

Cats, whales and empty seats: The best nonhuman Twitter feeds

NASA rover Curiosity makes historic Mars landing, beams back photos — Just in case you somehow missed this…

SMBC on the gay force that holds the universe together — Hahaha. Especially check out the mouseover text.

Fred Phelps: Why it is not possible to believe that you ate Chick-fil-A because of ‘freedom of speech’Slacktivist Fred Clark is once again delightfully snarky.

Voting Rights and Reproductive Rights for Artificial Intelligences[info]ericjamesstone is both funny and interesting with a very SFnal question and accompanying thought experiment.

Rick Warren and the “Finer Points of Christology” — Conservative commentator Daniel Larison on religion and the GOP. I generally have a lot of respect for what he has to say, but in this case, I think he gets it flat wrong in dismissing the theocratic underpinnings of the current Republican coalition on the basis of the McCain and Romney nominations. Probably because Larison's own deeply religious perspective makes it difficult for him to acknowledge the depths to which the GOP has sunk in this respect.

?otD: Got Curiosity?

That would be what we in the business like to call a "tyop".

...and fixed. Thanks!

I noted that the tyop lay in the source material . . .

Also, the One True Pop-Tart is wild blueberry. Maine wild blueberry, of course.

Oh. That's not what I was expecting it to be at all. I was thinking it would be more like one of those websites that pokes fun at all the odd things McDonald's serves in other countries. Like, oh, I don't know, sauerkraut Poptarts in Germany or kim chee Poptarts in South Korea [g].

Darn.
