Proper post tomorrow, but I’ve been absolutely exhausted over the last few days. So here are some linky things instead.
The first ever adaptation of 1984 — a radio version starring David Niven
The original, Borges-approved, translation of The Garden Of Forking Paths (his best collection of short stories) which went out of print after Borges’ widow commissioned a new translation with different royalty rates, is available as a PDF here
James Graham on extremism, the Paris attacks, and Star Wars
My friend Miriam, who doesn’t know or like 60s LA music very much, was interested in some of my posts about it anyway, and so on Saturday she is going to try livetweeting her reactions to the full four-hour mix of all the music I talk about in California Dreaming. She’ll be tweeting as Mimbletron, and the mixcloud mix is here
Britain’s got a Lib Dem sized hole in its heart
And Slate Star Codex has hardball questions for the next Republican debate (usual SSC comments warning probably applies)
The playlist is unavailable in the US. Possibly fell foul of the “Maximum 4 tracks by an artist” rule?
Damn, that’s a shame — it almost certainly did. I think I remember something about that when I first posted it.
