Frrrrriday Rrrrroundup! #20

dog staring at two nicely-composed stacks of rocks

An end-of-weekly roundup collecting fffffive of the fffffantabulous things I find stumbling around the web during the week here, but which I post on one of the many other Internet outlets I stop by (or tweet at) during my travels. More about the genesis here.

This recently uncovered silent-film version of a famous showdown from the Star Wars series made me laugh out loud. [Facebook-ed]

The world of early-20th Century Russia seems shockingly modern via these rare, real, not colorized, full-color photos. [delicious-ed, via kung-fu grippe]

I can’t begin to untangle the crazy, reblogged merriment that marked my introduction to Undercover Nun, so I’ll just point you to the mini-rant it inspired me to add and let you fall back down the rabbit hole on your own. Or, you know, not. [Tumbld, via tj]

Manifesto disguised as analysis rendered as list. [Stumbled]

It’s interesting in precisely the way Fox News is interesting. It provides aggrieved people an excuse to feel angry rather than feel sad.

Wow, I’m gonna remember that turn of phrase.

Nice dog photo!

Those Russian photos give me flashbacks to my graduate school days when my goal was to be a professor of Russian history… I was in love with the romance of Russian culture. But not so much with keeping my butt in the library 24/7 writing a dissertation.

Love the photo ’cause for me it’s very ‘zen.’ I know the dog is thinking something, I know it. Your thought process is very complicated but fascinating. Thanks for that.
