The Legend of Neil

If you've never played/seen/heard of The Legend of Zelda for the NES, then it's probably not worth watching this.

And the winner of the worst writing of 2008 is ...

Garrison Spik, a 41-year-old communications director and writer, took top honors in San Jose State University's 26th annual Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest with this opening sentence to a nonexistent novel:

"Theirs was a New York love, a checkered taxi ride burning rubber, and like the city their passion was open 24/7, steam rising from their bodies like slick streets exhaling warm, moist, white breath through manhole covers stamped 'Forged by DeLaney Bros., Piscataway, N.J."'

I'm fascinated by this. I bet the filmmaker's could just sit there and talk to these gentlemen all day long.

Your Own True Self (video)

On Youtube, in 5 parts: the 1993 documentary by Paul Athanas & Jay Rooney about residents of a Boston nursing home who became the stars of David Greenberger's wonderful Duplex Planet magazine. The film is a gently funny series of observations on our cultural fear of old age, documented in the course of interviews with 12 residents of the all-male Duplex facility in Jamaica Plain, NY MA.

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5. You can purchase this on DVD too. (Thanks, Coop!)

A Boy Today…A Man Tomorrow

Here at WU Central, we're all about providing useful knowledge to our eager readers, serving as a resource to help them with their perplexities.

For instance, I cannot count how many times readers have written in with this question:
