The Weekend Links: Sunday Edition

I'm big on lists and schedules - I love crossing things off and find comfort in scheduling my tasks (I know, I know ... /nerd) - But, if you need help in that department, you may consider one of these 15 Time Management Gadgets You Never Knew Existed.

From Merinda, "I thing OMG is an appropriate response to this." A video of the massive hailstorm in Oklahoma really gets going a minute or so in. (Here's a second video as well).
*
As one of a myriad of examples: a friend of mine in Philly has been following a production company using her office building and street as a stand-in for New York over the last few weeks. Now, we all know Hollywood likes to fake it, but I still get a kick out of this 1927 map of Paramount's locations lot - probably not all that different today!
*
From fantastic links-contributor Jan, What punctuation mark would you invent? (Here's an example or two from Neatorama).
*
From Flossy reader Jessica, a terrific research site that I can see myself getting easily addicted to.
*
Something fun to play with: a Text-To-Speech site (although I could do without the creepy animated figures whose eyes follow my mouse!)
*

Beautifying the landscape and re-imagining classics: unexpected art on water, oil and propane tanks, and The Darth Vader Helmet Project (perhaps these can be combined ... that might be frightening!)
*
If any of you are half the geek I am over Lost (shameless moment: I blog it over at Creative Loafing's site, you're glued to the tube tonight for the (hopefully) epic finale. In the meantime, enjoy some of this fan art from fellow devotees and check out a live rehearsal with the Lost orchestra.
