Here is this week’s list of blog posts, photographs, graphic novels, short stories and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

The Cask of Amontillado. This is by far my favourite Edgar Allan Poe short story.

From Only Happy People Can Fix the World:

Seriousness is a man-made disease, terminal in nature.

Linear Parks are Reshaping Urban Landscapes. Now this is a hopeful article. I wonder how else unused land in urban and suburban communities will be reclaimed as parks in the near future?

From The Saddest Toys in the Universe:

It is easy to forget that among the sexy nurses, and goofy decorations that Halloween is one of the few times a year that we engage with the idea of death…This still comes through in small ways in our modern Americanized Halloween.

Preparedness 101: Zombie Pandemic. This is how the CDC wants you to react in the event of a zombie uprising. I love that the CDC has such a fantastic sense of humour!

Sometimes what you need more than anything is a book that will make you laugh until your stomach muscles ache. F in Exams: The Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers is just such a book.

What have you been reading?
