What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo's ear infection is "green and oozing."

I never had a doctor exclaim as he looked in my ear before. The best word was, "Cool." Getting drugs on the way home. As he said, "Yes, it's way infected." Only a few links because of the time spent going to the Dr's office (only the second time I've done that in my entire career).

Nazi War Crimes as Described by German Soldiers (POWs) and secretly recorded by the Allies. In war, even the atrocious can seem normal. Before anybody starts the inevitable, "but they were the bad guys" argument, understand in Germany they also hold their myths as to the "cleanliness of the Wehrmacht." Also note the percentages, yes, it's a small one. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

This is why you hire a professional designer. A paper record player, freakin' cool. (Pointed to by Dan)

How book publishing has changed since 1984 as told by a insider publisher. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Tobias Buckell on independent tracking of ebook sales. It would be interesting to actual have a full tracking service (Nielsen often gets it wrong, and Bookscan has only a slice of the real market). As a sideline, it's a well worn joke that (insert your creative market here, book publishing, movie production, design) pioneered the process of keeping double books that would become all the rage in criminal circles. Unfortunately there appears to be some data missing from his article, but still enough to have food for thought to gnaw on over the weekend.
