A week in links (Happy Birthday, Bud version)

One of my best buds is having his birthday today (and tomorrow).  Happy twenty…six?  I think?  Wow, I'm a crappy friend, hahaha.  He'll never know the difference, heh…

He's a good guy though, but a bit on the loud side.  Massive film buff too — I respect alot of the movies he recommends.  He's got quite the touch for writing dialogue too!  I'd expect nothing less from a guy with an English degree.  Just look at Garrison Keilor.  Man's a national icon!

There's a lot of good stuff that came earlier in the week.  I didn't do alot of news searching for the past two days though, due to my busy schedule.  But all in all, a very nice haul!
