A parade of links. This is the new incarnation of the Monday Link Parade email. With any luck, this baby'll be updated in a timely manner.

My cousin photoshopped a picture of our dog and her name and made it into a Dr. Seuss book. I love this so much.

Here’s a gif of a vine of a video of a flipbook of a gif of a roller coaster. 

This girl in odessa might be saving ukraine @mondaylinkparade


This girl, in Odessa, might be saving Ukraine. Otherwise, at least she gets to take the horse out for a spin. 


Spatialrelations this article in the bangor @mondaylinkparade


This article in the Bangor Daily News does an amazing job describing what happened in Central Maine (both inland and near the coast) in the late ’70s and how the Back to the Land movement has changed the entire state. I became friends with many of the children who grew up in this culture, and their lives and experiences have had a profound impact on me. If you do anything today, please read this article and watch the footage. It is amazing.

Some folks are from here and some folks are from away.

This is amazing i could lambaste it but i ont @mondaylinkparade

This is amazing. I could lambaste it, but I on’t really know where to start.

Maine: We are the 8%!


Things in ukraine are absolutely crazy right now @mondaylinkparade

Things in Ukraine are absolutely crazy right now.  I am having a hard time understanding it.  It seems like we should be hearing more in the media about the story, but coverage has been somewhat scant. The Atlantic’s In Focus photo blog has been running profoundly disturbing photos and I recommend taking a look at them.  

Here’s a rundown of the unrest.

Here’s a stop-motion animation of Kiev from before.

There’s word that Yanukovych is ready to have early elections.

It snowed last night and was lovely dog-walking weather.

Cars are for squares. I drove yesterday because I have a flat tire on my bike. :(

The picture isnt exactly right but sometimes you @mondaylinkparade

The picture isn’t exactly right, but sometimes you just have to go with it.  It’s Bourbon Day

Note that broseph is mistaken about the really big ice cubes.  I am of the opinion that regular to small ice cubes are best for both speedy cooling and proper dilution.  Also, whiskey and water is not a bad thing (see, e.g. The Three-Day Blow).

They say 1948 but i think its really just from @mondaylinkparade

They say 1948, but I think it’s really just from Instagram.

This post from adventure journal has a sick pic of @mondaylinkparade

This post from Adventure Journal has a sick pic of a sicker line on the Aguille du Midi and starts out talking about text messaging with JP Auclair. I figured it couldn’t be one of the normal contributors.  It wasn’t.  it’s Swedish gnarlbro  Andreas Fransson.  Oh, by the way, it’s getting to be steeps skiing season!  Get it.

Here at mlp we use tumblrs queue feature to keep @mondaylinkparade

Here at MLP, we use Tumblr’s queue feature to keep things coming with some very little regularity.  For that reason, this morning’s post had the title “Well this sucks.” It does suck, but given the terrible business in Boston, I want to recognize that there are all kinds of sucky things out there.  Yuck.  Today you’ll get a two-post Tuesday and I’ll give you some radical if slightly pucker-inducing news: Two bros skied the north face of the Grand Teton. Wow.
