This is not a Lego minifig (link roundup)

Rene Magritte's Son of Man as a Lego minifig by Mike Stimpson. Here's his webstore.

And a few more links:

2. Christian Robinson has posted several pages from the Up tie-in book Beware of Dug, $4 at Amazon.

3. Los Angeles County officials are trying to empty a homeless encampment under the 10 Freeway:

To reach the secret place they call the Cave, its denizens must climb a ladder toward a small, hard-to-notice opening in the tall concrete slab that helps hold up the 10 Freeway. They must squeeze beneath a rusty metal grating, balance on a ledge and descend a second ladder into thick, dead air and darkness. This is home, a vast, vault-like netherworld, strewn with garbage and syringes.

4. Absolutely fascinating article pointing out that time after time, companies that achieve huge market share don't raise prices.
