Slow Sunday

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

It’s the usual slow news Sunday, so I’m going to keep it short and sweet today.

First, I really, really, really want this comic about Etruscan life by 6 Italian comic book authors, but I don’t think they ship overseas. :( (Google Translate English version)

Second, I’ve spent many hours today browsing this fantastic blog of iconic photographs. There are some great moments of history captured on this site, and the entries provide deeply satisfying explanations of the photographs and photographers, not just quick captions.

For an awesome overview of some of the icons covered in the blog, see “We Didn’t Start the Camera Fire” which links to any entries referred to in Billy Joel’s paean to the history of his lifetime, We Didn’t Start the Fire.

Lastly, OMG Playmobil Gladiator!!1
