Linking Wednesday

1. This won't be of interest to anyone except my philosophy buddies, but man, is it of interest there. Analytic Versus Continental Philosophers on Fashion. He's a fairly interesting philosophy blogger in general, so check out the blog, too.

2. This is just so cool. Motors powered by bacteria? We've certainly got no lack of those, hand sanitizers notwithstanding. Wonder when this will be more than a lab trick.

3. Stephen Colbert is hilarious, and remains so even through this seven-page monstrosity of an article at New York Metro. Fun stuff.

4. The Fug Girls strike it rich again. Delicious!

5. I'm not sure I've ever linked to A Dress A Day, partially because I enjoy a good discussion of vintage fashion, but I'm not sure you do. Still, this piece is funny and apropos and the dresses are crazy. Oh, and this piece is more topical than she usually gets, but it's a good reminder: "You don't owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don't owe it to your mother, you don't owe it to your children, you don't owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked 'female'." Word.
