Link roundup

1. Metafilter answers: Why were Victorian mansions, like the ones the Addams Family and the Munsters were depicted as living in, seen as plausible homes for monsters by the mid-20th century?   Via.

2.  Rolling swarm.

3.  Two movies I mentioned in the past, Upstream Color and Miami Connection, are both available on Netflix streaming.  I found Upstream Color too disturbing to watch, and Miami Connection is even less interesting than watching boring karate demonstrations on Youtube.

4. New Umami burger in Burbank, specializing in hot dogs.

  1. Upstream Color is disturbing and made me so uncomfortable that I almost stopped watching it mid-way through. Ultimately I found it very rewarding, though it was so unsettling that I am not sure whether things balance out in the end.

    Miami Connection is the kind of thing that can only be appreciated in a group setting, giving it the old MST3K treatment.
