Library of LINKs

January 16, 2008

Library of Congress photo collection – I wish there were really high-res versions available, but they still get up in the 1024×768 range which isn’t too shabby. There are a lot of WWII era photos that are particularly interesting.

Wesley Crusher promoted to Lieutenant Commander and assistant Chief Engineer aboard the Titan – Now I really want a show focusing on Captain Riker and the crew of the Titan.

Elijah Wood confirms dual Hobbit film details – One word: gay. Why would they even consider making a movie without any book to base it on? Aren’t the ticket, merchandising, and DVD sales enough? Next question, does Wood really know what the heck he is talking about?

VIDEOS

I always thought tigers were the biggest, butt-kickers in the world, and I suppose they still are naturally, but the liger is pretty darn impressive too:

Lewis and I were just talking about metal and classical music the other day, and I suggested metal is the modern music form more closely associated to classical music. On that note, Megadeth just announced a change in their lead guitarist. The old guy was a stud, but this new guy (Chris Broderick, he was in Nevermore) looks even better. He has a degree in classical guitar from the University of Denver, and here he is playing some Bach (baroque, classical, whatever).

Here he is playing Legnani.

Finally, here he is playing a solo for a song from Megadeth’s most recent album.

Vladimir Putin reviews Call of Duty 4. This is kind of funny.

This video is rated NSFW, and is the gun cam from an Apache engaging insurgents in Iraq on November 16, 2007. The gunner gets cheated on Battlefield Desert Combat. I’ve seen a lot more graphic videos of war, but it’s still people dieing. The rest of the site’s content is not accounted for. I can’t recommend browsing around, and if you do come across objectionable material, don’t blame me.

    I don’t get the Tom Cruise/Scientology vid. He is seemingly absolutely committed to helping people. But what does mean? How? Does he feel he is Superman or something? I don’t get it. Besides that, I don’t see any reason at all to call him a freak…as you said, at least he believes in something and is following his convictions.

    The Putin video is quite funny…liked it.

    I couldn’t find that sniper video you were talking about.

    Also, the new Megadeth guitar player…quite awesome!
