Friday Round Up

So you have heard of the human genome project. How about the music genome project?

In my never-ending quest to locate cool online maps I came across the Yes Map. This is a map of American radio stations that shows the songs they are playing in real-time. One of my favorite magazines is Geist, a Canadian magazine. They include very interesting maps in each issue. Here is a listing of them.

Every few years I go back and re-read all of my favorite Jane Austen books. I'm glad to see these very well written Jane Austen blogs. Here's one, two , and three.

So you all no my chocoholic tendencies. Well, I was at a friends and she gives me a bag of these. Milk chocolate with a white chocolate(which we all know isn't really chocolate, but it's wonderful) filling. I know I don't need to say anymore.

There are times when I am in a self-imposed blog reading marathon I will read all of one kind of blog-food blogs, librarian blogs, etc. I found this very nice academic blog portal that makes my addiction so much easier to manage.

Still not in the Christmas spirit. Here's 24 films to get you to feel Christmasy.

At one time I had a ridiculous amount of cookbooks. I ended up giving a lot of them away so now I am down to just a few. Maybe I'll start collecting again. I could use the best 20 cookbooks of 2006 list as my guide.

Take a look at this very interesting blog on landscape architecture. (thanks Katie)

At first I thought this Datamining blog was not going to be my cup of tea, but I really like it.

Katie also turned me on to Pop Candy. This is probably one of the best pop culture blogs I've read in awhile. (of course that's just my humble opinion).

I have been finding lots of end of year lists, but I am not going to go crazy and keep posting them. I think there are other bloggers who actually compile lists of everything for that year. I think the fantastic fimoculous does this every year if I am not mistaken.

Have a good weekend.
