Things of Interest: 01/02/15

I read and watch a lot of stuff on the Internet that I find interesting. In these posts, I share a few of the highlights I’ve come across.

  1. The Virtual Politician posted about a political-alignment quiz you can take to see where you fall. I think I fall in the Social Democracy area, if I’m reading the coordinates right.

  2. David Guaghran has a post about muckracking reporter Jessica Mitford and her work in exposing the financial scam of The Famous Writers School back in the early 1970s.

  3. I wrote on Christmas about the Humble Doctor Who Audiobook Bundle. This week they’ve added three more titles to the bundle, all of which are based on Doctor Who stage-plays performed for brief periods during the classic era. I didn’t know those were even a thing until now. Colin Baker is featured as the 6th Doctor. You still have four more days left to get this set!

  4. I know Christmas is over, and this video is a year old, but if you want one of your iconic childhood Christmas movies to be ruined for you, check out Screen Junkies’ analysis of Home Alone, answering the question: How many lives would it take for the Wet Bandits to make it through the first two movies? The brick scene makes me cringe.
