In the interest of our rather large regular reader base of 6 (or is it 8?) we, at Mixed Bag Dot Blogspot Dot Com have decided to, once a day, post links that we feel our readers (8, is it?) might find interesting.
The links are likely to be as whimsical as this blog is. We like it that way. If you mind – Shoo. Posting of links shall be as sporadic as posting on this blog has been. Do not get used to regularity of any kind.
(8? A wild guess. No census (auditory pun intended))
Now that disclaimers and caveats have been dealth with, as they say in Klingon – KASDLKF KFDALKF KLKADFK KLINK KLUNK KLINK KLUNK KLINK KLUNK.
(Direct translation – ‘Hey David! Bring on the empty horses’. This can also mean – ‘Onward to the links, dude’. Direct tranlations, as Umberto Eco put it, are not entirely accurate. Take your pick)
- Go to work on an ego (Long but very interesting read about how a Neuroscience theory was adapted into a sci-fi play)
- The Religious Experience of Philip K Dick (Sci fi, again)
- Irvine Welsh shocks us by saying – ‘I’d rather look at the hills than get wasted’.
- A review of Truman Capote’s Summer Crossing
- Keep your book lists online (Why doesn’t Google do something like this? I don’t like signing in for everything)
- Mappalujo – Jeff Noon and Steve Beard – (I think I first saw this site three years ago. An interesting writing game. Not read the whole thing, though.)
- On Bulleh Shah’s poetry – (Long and tedious. I’m not one for poetry anyway)
- The Cyberpunk Reading List and Wiki on Cyberpunk (I didn’t know what cyberpunk meant. JG BALLARD there!!!)
- Extracts from “Madcap – the half-life of Syd Barrett, Pink Floyd’s lost Genius” – (Tidbits)
- JD Salinger’s Uncollected writings – (Bookmarked!)
- Calvino’s If on a winter’s night a traveler (selection from 1st Chapter. Love writing in second person)
- Kafka’s The Metamorphosis – Flash movie by Peter Kuper – (Not complete, but nice)
Most of these links are off the deli.cio.us reading list. I’ve just filtered them in accordance with my preferences.
