List O' Links for Friday, January 16th, 2015
Welcome to what I hope for you is a nice long weekend. Spend it at these fine links!
It'll take you at least one of the next three days to enjoy the top 50 web comics as chosen by Pleated Jeans. There are some fantastic comic strips here!
For all you MS-DOS fans (and you know who you are), you can now play almost 2,400 classic DOS-based video games in your browser, courtesy of the Internet Archive. Play away!
One of my favorite novelty music acts is Spike Jones and His City Slickers. Now they can be your favorite too, thanks to Music for Maniacs. Enjoy every song the band recorded in their first seven years!
Next Tuesday, January 20th at 3pm Eastern time, Marvel Comics is going to make a major announcement about this year's upcoming Secret Wars event, which, unlike every other event from the major comics publishers, is actually supposed to change the Marvel Universe forever for real. Bookmark this link to follow along with the announcement and see what all the hubbub is about! The link won't be live until the actual event, so proceed with caution.
Long before TGI Fridays became the default place for potato skins and Jack Daniels riblets, it's first location was quite the swanky place. Learn this and more about the restaurant chain's surprisingly colorful past here!
As long as we're learning things about people and places we thought we already knew, here are 19 facts you didn't know about the legendary band Fleetwood Mac. You may be sick of them due to egregious overplay by radio, but they really are a great band.
Finally, I've professed my love for Adventure Time before, but for a twist on the popular animated series, check out this--let's not call it a rip-off, let's just say it's apparently inspired by AT. From a young group of independent animators in China comes "Legend of Lucky Pie." It's weird, it's trippy, it's mathematical!
Have a great weekend! If you're serving your community this Monday, thank you!
