link friday: “God Only Knows”, old-timey baseball footage, living on Amtrak

– This BBC video of a bunch of famous people singing “God Only Knows” is pretty good, even if I didn’t recognize most of the singers (not including Stevie Wonder, of course!) Here’s a handy guide to who’s who. Then I found in the comments a link to the barbershop quartet version from Bioshock Infinite. Then I remembered “Let the Circle be Unbroken” from Bioshock Infinite was also really pretty. Then in the related links I found this interview with the Lutece twins. Then I thought “hey, I should get back to work!”

Watch rare footage of the Senators beating the Giants in the 1924 World Series – it’s real old-timey baseball footage! (the music is extra cool, although it’s not original)

Aboard Amtrak – a long essay about the author’s experience living on Amtrak. Includes a handy Amtrak travel guide which we might take advantage of in the future!

Times Articles Removed From Google Results in Europe – look, I understand the idea behind the “right to be forgotten”, but this smacks of revisionist history. The wedding and death announcements I don’t mind as much, but the one’s that “damage people’s reputation” I don’t think should be removed.
