Blogcrushing: Oscar Predix, Simpsons, Poetry
via WikipediaNew York Mag : Oscar predictions will abound this week, but none are more exciting than those of Nate Silver, the wunderkid behind FiveThirtyEight.com. Using a computer model, he computes the major categories...and comes up with a few bold surprises. Nice!
Fabulon : This is what a gay orgasm looks like from space. Wowowow.
A Blog Next Door : The new Simpsons opening credits. Like the old credits, but with more doodads and whirligigs.
Cinematical : The first trailer for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is online. Is it just me, or is Megatron like really, really hot? I would totally give it up for him.
Queerty : According to Webster's, "karmic retribution" is defined as what happens when a bigoted homophobic evangelical minister finds his son arrested for gay sex in a public park. It is also the definition for "bitchtastic."
Designers' Block : If you buy this glassware set, we recommend that you not drink Mountain Dew when using them. Trust us.
Classic Poetry Aloud : Just what the title says...Browning, Byron, Coleridge and more, read aloud, for free no less. A much better lunch-at-your-desk alternative than slogging through another crappy episode of Chuck on Hulu, right?
