Popped culture

The weekend is going too fast.  Miscellaneous pop culture observations before I return to grading: 

They have one for the Nostromo, the ship in the movie Alien, but where’s the one for Costaguana, the fictional country in the novel Nostromo?  Or the one with the logo of the Patna, the ship in Lord Jim?  I bet they’d line up around the block to get T-shirts from the fictional universe of Joseph Conrad.

  •   One of the best T-shirts I’ve seen lately is a collage of spoilers for movies (“Soylent Green is made of people!”).  “Spoilt” was designed by Oliver Moss and is available at Threadless, but don’t click the link unless you don’t mind the spoilers.
  • Chuck Norris Facts: something I’d never heard of before my 2YC class on Friday. 
  • From today’s front page of the Urban Dictionary: Clark Kent job: a job that pays the bills but isn’t what you really want to do. 
  • And who doesn’t love I Can Has Cheezburger?
