Weekend Bookend

Because there have been so many interesting tidbits in the news, I bring you "Weekend Bookend."  Don't get used to it.  This week, we discovered that Bloomsbury is having a hell of a PR week, and The New York Times is apparantly strapped for cash:
  • Is Bloomsbury run by a bunch of racists, or do they just not tell the cover artists what the book is actually about?
  • For those of you who find it difficult to tell others how you really feel, there's now SarcMark.
  • Dave Itzkoff of The New York Times explores the copywrite issues surrounding the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in "For the Heirs to Sherlock Holmes, A Tangled Web."  Stories like this make me (almost) glad I'm only related to poor people.
  • Here's a recording of Christopher Walken reciting "The Raven," by Edgar Allan Poe. A weird guy reading a weird guy's writing.
  • Check out this collection of photographs of things that belonged to William S. Burroughs.
  • In a move sure to annoy the masses, The New York Times will begin charging for frequent access to online articles beginning in 2011.
