Lookouts painting by Mike Krahulik (link roundup)

New Lookouts painting by Mike Krahulik. Today's Penny Aracde, starring an updated version of Ahab and Moby Dick, was also genius.

And a few more links:

1. Roger Ebert says of Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones, "It's based on the best-seller by Alice Sebold that everybody seemed to be reading a couple of years ago. I hope it's not faithful to the book; if it is, millions of Americans are scary." i09 hated it, too. Sounds like the only big difference from the book is that they eliminated a major plot point that made the mom and cop even more unlikable. (In case you're thinking my hatred for the book is due to my Y chromosome, well, I think my next batch of book reviews will dispel that theory.)

2. The big bosses at Rockstar Games were accused earlier this week of managing like Sauron. So, they responded by issuing a new Eye of Sauron-themed desktop wallpaper.

3. The WSJ has really positive things to say about California's economy.
