Here are a few links. Not many, but enough to entertain and inform.
- Article about John Lloyd, British comedy mastermind.
- Audio of Proto-Indo-European reconstruction. Could be improved by having multiple speakers — each with a different native accent — to help abstract out incidental features.
- Interview about illustrating prehistoric continents, plus associated website.
- World’s oldest animated cartoon is oddly reminiscent of Terry Gilliam’s bits in Monty Python.
The September 21/22 weekend was very exciting for me. It was a family thing, so I don’t feel the need to blog about it in detail, but you definitely need to see photos of my cousins making little confectionary cars. (Regrettably, I didn’t get to eat one; there was too much else going on.)
