The Onion’s Guide to the 6 Best Companies to Work For

The Onion just nails it with their The 6 Best Companies To Work For. Goldman Sachs sounds awesome!

Between easing annoying filing requirements, offering discounted tax rates to the company and its highest-earning employees, or just reminding personnel they can do whatever they set their minds to, this army of legislators and federal financial regulators is always available to give Goldman Sachs bankers a pat on the back and help them do what they do best.

History Cookbook

Cookit, The History Cookbook This is a very nice little site with historical English recipes. Some look very tasty, others less so but it is a nice view on how food has changed over the centuries, at least in England.

Musical Roots

Boing Boing LogoBoing Boing just ran an excellent series on cultural roots of music and how blind most are to them. It runs fifteen parts, each illustrated by a video and covers country, soul, blues, bluegrass, classical and each is worth watching. I love following the roots of music, as a society we ignore so much excellent music, it is nice to see some really great music highlighted. This is the first one, I think they are all worth watching.
