So apparently it is Book Blogger Appreciation Week, as part of which a lot of book bloggers are giving away a lot of free books. Some caught my eye immediately:
- Scott Westerfeld's Leviathan at Bart's Bookshelf
- Various bookish things (including Scrabble tile earrings!) at Bibliofreak, and supporting the Seattle Public Library
- Lynda Barry's What It Is and a graphic novel grab-bag at Boston Bibliophile
- Geektastic, which I reviewed here, at Books, Movies, and Chinese Food
- And Roberto Bolaño's 2666 at Nonsuch Book, which I reviewed here
Day five of the meme calls for a YouTube clip. If you haven't seen Martha Stewart put Cookie Monster in handcuffs, well, you haven't lived.
Have a few AMV recommendations too, because I can:
- Malificus' "Newspaper Man" (Cowboy Bebop the movie x TV On The Radio, spoilers). It's an unconventional song choice, and really well done, and I like it for that.
- Mouse Potato, "Nightmare" (Neon Genesis Evangelion x A Perfect Circle, spoilers). The best EVA AMV I've seen, hands down.
- Alkampfer81, "Hold Me Now" (Princess Tutu x Nanne Grönvall, spoilers). This is a famous AMV, and deservedly so.
