links on a friday

Shameless self-promotion: I'm singing the Durufle Requiem as part of an All Souls Requiem mass at St. David's church in a few weeks. It's a beautiful piece of music and the choir sounds very impressive. You should come!
Now, for a somewhat subpar set of links:
Brits Stiffen Their Upper Lips, French Take to the Streets - even though the world is fairly globalized, national characteristics are still alive and kicking.
Helpful snapshot of what online TV services (Hulu, Netflix, etc.) have access to which shows. We've vaguely talked about doing the whole no cable thing for a while, but it sounds like kind of a pain to make it work with the shows we watch.
The legend of gay astronauts!
A very clever malicious page that disguises itself as the Firefox "this page is malicious" page.
President Obama did a video for the "It Gets Better" project. Of course the commenters are ripping him a new one for opposing gay marriage, appealing DADT even though he doesn't support the policy, etc.
Comment from cifarelli:
Thanks for the online tv link! We've been contemplating that switch for a while, and that link will be helpful once I can peruse it on a screen larger than my iPod.
Comment from gregstoll:
Cool! Hope it's helpful. It seems almost random which services have which shows...
