A few links

It’s a pity that Death Note is little-known outside of anime circles. The parallels between Light Yagami’s little black notebook and the Lightworker’s “kill list” deserve more attention.

I’ve never read Eric Hobsbawm and I don’t plan to, but I can’t resist posting this picture (from The People’s Cube). Here are a couple of encomiums to the celebrated historian (the latter via Dale Price).

One thought on “A few links”

  1. I read about half of a Hobsbawm general history – the Age of Extremes – before I gave it up as a bad job. It was a very puzzling read until I twigged to the fact that the book was written with the (unstated) assumption that the Fall of the Berlin Wall was an unmitigated disaster for civilization.
