Friday’s Link Slurry

Here’s some stuff culled from the Internets in the past week, the Friday Link Slurry:

"Yo quiero desayuno a Taco Bell."

On TedQuarters, SNY’s Ted Berg discusses the Taco Bell breakfast menu (http://www.tedquarters.net/2010/03/17/burying-the-lede-and-a-plea-for-help/) and how their Atomic Bacon Bombers are not so Atomic and Bacony (http://www.tedquarters.net/2010/03/17/atomic-bacon-bombers-appear-far-less-atomic-bacony-explosive-than-advertised/).

More fun after the jump!

Via AppleInsider, in the iPad awesomeness department, here’s a cool digital magazine/movie/thing from Viv magazine:

VIV Mag Interactive Feature Spread – iPad Demo from Alexx Henry on Vimeo.

Also, via Gizmodo, Penguin Publishers will create new age in books (just as I hope iTunes LP will create a new age in full music albums):

Also on Giz, their amazing “Memory Forever” series (http://gizmodo.com/tag/memoryforever) and Bill Nye the Science Guy stops by to talk about brains (http://gizmodo.com/5497055/bill-nye-the-science-guy-dont-worry-your-phone-isnt-making-you-dumb).

On mental_floss, David K. Israel just earned newfound respect with his interview with Jason Alexander (http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/50204). Also, contributor Rod Lammie discusses rare video games (http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/50335).

Broken Bells, the new product of Danger Mouse and James Mercer of the all-but-disbanded The Shins, were at the SXSW music festival, and NPR’s All Things Considered were there to record it (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=124040906&sc=nl&cc=asc-20100319).

Finally, on BoingBoing, the wonderful Maggie Koerth-Baker remembers Gary Bauer and celebrate’s C-SPAN’s video library’s arrival on the Internet (http://www.boingboing.net/2010/03/19/gary-bauer-pancakes.html) and Mark Frauenfelder discusses a discovery in quantum physics (http://www.boingboing.net/2010/03/19/quantum-mechanics-ap.html).

Join me tomorrow for the next installment of the Saturday Night Stuff I Like, when I discuss Wilco.
