Hooray, it's Friday. We plan on escaping the rat race for a few days and so updates will be sporadic over the next week, but we'll be back to normal by the 19th. In the meantime, in case I miss them, happy St. Patrick's Day, happy Ides of March, and happy birthday to Dr. Matt!

And now, the links from others. Thanks, everyone!

From Holly: Nayio has an answer to that age-old question of "Do you know this song? It goes like this..." (I worked in a record store for a little while, and yes, this happens a lot.) You can now hum the song, and Nayio will try to identify it for you.

From Cassandra: a Salon article examining how we read (as opposed to what we read).

Also from Cassandra: Can't figure out how to decorate your room? Get a design psychologist!

From Tim: R2D2 mailboxes are coming! Woohoo! Now all we need are some Dalek mailboxes...

Also from Tim: analyzing one's media consumption. I think my media consumption is so high it probably veers toward requiring an intervention; if I get time, I may post my self-analysis.

And finally, the Truck Driver's Gear Change, which is a phrase describing the change in key that ends many a rock song (Bon Jovi's "Living on a Prayer" is a prime example). They seem to think this is a problem. I actually love this in songs; it's even better if you yell out "Modulate!" when the key change happens, in my opinion. I guess this is why I'm not a music critic.

Have a spiffy weekend and week, everyone! I'll definitely see you a week from Monday, and perhaps sporadically before then.
