RANDOM LINKS FOR 2/20/12
February 19th, 2012 by Clark Humphrey

  • Not really a Seattle Times Shrinkage Watch update, but related: The Times website has posted the entire 152-page commemorative special section originally published at the Seattle World’s Fair’s opening weekend, 50 years ago this April. (And remember, newspaper pages were a lot wider back then.) All those puff-piece articles. All those now ‘retro’ photos and art. And all those ads! From supermarket chains down to commercial construction firms that didn’t need mass-market ads. Everyone wanted to advertise in newspapers then.
  • No, Amazon is not some giant ogre out to stomp on all things truly bookish, say a few truly bookish folks.
  • Rap n’ Opera, together at last. At least in this story.
  • Last week’s #1 TV show in the Seattle area: the Grammys. #2: Downton Abbey. Really.
  • Are we two years away from no longer being able to see films distributed on, you know, film?
