What I’ve Been Reading

From the world’s greatest journeys to blogging geekery to funny accents, here’s a list of some material I’ve been enjoying online over the past months but haven’t had time to link to until now:

— World Hum interview: “Paul Theroux: Invisible Man on a Ghost Train”

— Mashable.com: “25+ Tools for a Road Trip 2.0”

Blogging:

Just for Fun:

— Calaboca.com: “Bacilos – Sin Verguenza,” a post about an album from one of my favorite bands. (Aside: Best track from this album — with silly lip syncing fan vid: “Pasos de Gigante.”)

  1. Awesome links!

    Paul Theroux is my new secret crush, ever since he got liposuction for a BBC special on plastic surgery. Fucking adorable, that guy.
