    Link roundup for the last few weeks

    SHARE

    March has been a busy month for me, with a trip to Austin for the South By Southwest Film Festival, thence to Houston to visit friends, thence to a private hospital in Zurich for a few “procedures.” The last one of these link roundups I posted was March 2, so here’s pretty much everything that’s happened since then.

    (Also: Snide Remarks will be back this week after two weeks off.)
