One of my all-time favorite toys, Inspector Gadget for the spotlight on Fwoosh. I had two different versions of this toy, but both broke. Wah wah.
In 1963 a kid sent a bunch of authors a questionnaire about symbolism. Most of them said it just kind of happens, which I’ve always suspected. Thanks to my wife for sending me the link and Mental Floss for posting about it.

This one’s also from October, but I loved reading Fred Armisen talk to Esquire about filming the above video with the Clash.
I heard about all the craziness that went down with the Kim’s Video VHS and DVD collection after the store closed on an episode of Killer POV, but reading the actual Village Voice story from 2012 is long yet fascinating.

Here’s something I never thought I’d write, but this Joe Jonas piece on Vulture is pretty intriguing.
And finally, enjoy 9 minutes of rad action movie lines. (via The Mary Sue)
