It's been a long time / I shouldn't have left you / without Links of Interest to step to.

Haven't done one of these in years so let's get right into it.

* - First of all, it is Science Art Tweet-Storm Day!

* - Also, if you are a picture-drawer of prehistoric life, go take the Paleoart Survey.

* - The Beasts of the Mesozoic Raptor Series figures are available for pre-order and darn me if I know which one to pick.

* - Also in "Shut up and take my money" news, look at Safari Ltd's new Tyrannosaurus rex!  Look at him!

* - There have been loads of great articles on TetZoo recently, but my favorite is this post on Paleoart Memes, what they are, where they come from, and how they're sort of an inadvertent record of the prevailing (or, interestingly, NOT) theories of their time.

* - And that article is based on a lecture Darren Naish gave during the Popularizing Paleontology event back in September.  The whole shebang is available on the event's official website.  (And now I have even more questions about "The Good Dinosaur"...)

* - Do you like post-apocalyptic fiction?  Yeah, who doesn't these days?  Start reading T. Michael Keese's "Paleocene" already!

* - Speaking of webcomics, there's never been a better time to catch up with Tom Siddell's "Gunnerkrigg Court".  Dude just wrapped up a story arc from ten years ago! 

* - If you'd like some instant inspiration, check out Burger Fiction's fantastic montage of every Best Cinematography Oscar winner in chronological order.  Their Best Special Effects montage is a stunner as well.

* - The Annie Awards inspired me to check out the work of Caroline Leaf and my God, why am I just learning about her?

* - We all need some chillout music, so why not head to E82's archive of EPCOT ambience from days past (days of future past, one might even say)?  They just added themes from CommuniCore/InnoVentions and the Horizons soundtrack is a must-have.
