Friday Fun Day – 9/7/12

7 Sep

The blistering sun doesn’t let up in Austin, but at least that means there’s plenty of time for pool days!

What I Learned
  • This is a super Information Studies thing to list, but did you know the Library of Congress has the largest collection of preserved radio broadcasts, and even they only have 50 pre-1933 recordings and less than 1000 made before 1936?! Radio was America’s biggest entertainment/news provider for years, and this is all we got! And that, folks, is why archivists are important.
  • Will Arnett and Amy Poehler are filing for divorce. There is no hope for the world. I’m going to go sob into a bowl of ice cream while I yell obscenities at the brides on “Say Yes to the Dress”. Please join me.
