Link roundup

1. Little kid dressed like Edward Scissorhands.

2. Funny video of a tremendous screamer walking through Universal Studio's haunted house.

3. I greatly enjoyed the first half of David Grann's The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, which details the turn of the century adventures of Percy Fawcett as he explored the unforgiving jungles of the Amazon. Grann does a superb job describing a jungle that perversely is both full of life of all sizes that could quickly and painfully kill a man, while at the same time almost bereft of easily obtainable food. But the second half of the book, about Fawcett's last, disastrous adventure, and the miserable and penniless wife he left behind, was drudgery to complete. And the ending of the book, devoted to lamenting the loss of jungle to modern progress, is laughable in light of all the time Grann spent explaining that the Amazon is hell on Earth.

Mortal Kombat: The Live Tour tv appearance (link roundup)

Circa 1996, actors from the Mortal Kombat: Live Tour show off their moves and answer questions on an Los Angeles morning news show. Via.

And a few more links:

1. Here's video footage of "Case," the live performance of Neuromancer. (Not quite as exciting as I'd hoped.) Via.

2. The Tim Burton retrospective honors his Southern California roots:

We've attempted to accomplish this by organizing material under “Surviving Burbank” covering the years of Tim's upbringing in Burbank, CA; “Beautifying Burbank” on his years as a student at CalArts and an apprentice animator and concept artist with the Walt Disney Company, including his early collaborations with sculptor and artist Rick Heinrichs, animator Joe Ranft and effects artist Stephen Chiodo; to “Beyond Burbank” for the years since his first feature, "Pee-wee's Big Adventure" (1985), to the present.
Read more about the show here.
