Link roundup

I've mentioned M.S. Corley's monster illustrations before. He's posted several more, including the Tuunbaq, which I'm familiar with thanks to Dan Simmons excellent novel, The Terror.

Here's a few more random links:

1. With every edition, The latest Oxford Junior Dictionary says goodbye to more and more words related to religion and nature, and hello to words that describe technology. Via.

2. Boy gets stuck in claw vending machine. Photo link.

3. List of best-named college lacrosse players. Zeppy O’Green gets my vote.

4. Comment and win some Transformer dvds.

*Previously: Most Pretentious Baby Name Consultant Contest 2007.

*Preorder Simmons' upcoming novel about Charles Dickens at Amazon.
