Victorian octopus (link roundup)

Victorian octopus with a mustache by Mike Hiscott. High-res image here, along with a not safe for work drawing.

And a few more links:

1. A cat and his bodyguards, perhaps?

2. Breastfeeding and ninjas are a surprisingly funny match.

3. Michale Crichton's pilot script for ER was 20 years old when the first episode was made. Also, the pilot was screened on cable television. People were recruited to watch it, but if you were lucky, you would have just stumbled upon it by accident. Two of the interesting factoids from this article. (And I've only ever watched a single episode.)

4. I don't think it's online anywhere but there's a "You're the next studio head" board game by Chip Wass in the March issue of Los Angeles magazine.
