The Weekend Links: Saturday Edition

Image credit: 

In honor of my first word, my first link this week concerns owls: Francesca has sent in this link to a live owl webcam focusing on a mother owl and her 4 owlets. It's cute and addicting!

I'm jealous of anyone heading to the shore this weekend, but not so much that I hope you encounter any of these 15 deadly creatures creatures at the beach!
*
Another ocean-related link: insert your own laudatory and exclamatory adjective [here] to describe these photos taken from inside waves.
*
I wonder if Superman enthusiasts would pay more to live on this street. Any unintentionally (or intentionally) funny street names in your town?
*

The Tufa Towers of Mono Lake

From my friend Thomas' gchat status (which never fails to be interesting), I think the title of this post says it all: "holy moly. Those are real people covered in paint. It's amazing."
*
Thanks to Ryan Anderson for pointing me in the direction of Taiwan's Lin Yu Chun, who sings Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" live and kills it. This kid is astounding.
*
A ghost story from the plains: who is the headless horseman? (Very creepy!)
*
A new series from Nerve.com, "Before You Were Born: Stories from our parents' surprisingly romantic youth." In this edition, "When I was a kid, family legend told that before they were married, my parents walked from Pennsylvania to Wisconsin, partly to test their relationship. On a recent visit home, I got the whole story."
*
Anna sent in a great link this week to a "show that is put on by Robert Llewellyn where he gives someone famous and or interesting a lift and films it." (I do recommend a fairly fast connection though - I'm on the public library's WiFi right now and it's taking awhile to load)
*
Though a few of these are repeats, there seems to be a never-ending supply of Party Cakes Gone Horribly Wrong (some are intentional, but it's pretty glorious)
