Feeling Antisocial

I should buy this shirt and change my name to something like Obsidian. Then read Le Fanu and think dark thoughts...

The Thoughts Are Stuck on the Self Made Scholar

As you may recall, I love learning (it's my number one Strength) and education, but often wonder if we're going about it all wrong. You know, if maybe instead of lighting fires we're just filling buckets* in our educational system. The Self Made Scholar is wondering the same thing but did something proactive and put together an awesome website of self-directed learning opportunities.

If you need a geek-reason to visit, check out the post Podcasts vs. Professors.

The Random Album Cover Meme

Pam over at Beancounters must've realized I had a hard week because she posted this totally awesome meme.

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit random

The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to The Quotations Page. Hit random quotes

The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to Flickr. Click on explore the last seven days

The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.
