Daily Links 12/4

David Mamet certainly has written some legendary films and plays. Read a little bit about what makes him tick.

Just in case you ever wanted to read about a town that makes fireworks.

The first minute of this Finnish skiing video is of the three dudes fucking themselves up - the next 4 minutes are of them not. It's worth it.

If you're a Game of Thrones fan, this breakdown, with all the principals, of how they made the Blackwater episode is pretty cool.

In the off chance that this blurb sells maybe one or two more books for him, I'm recommending the novel Confessions from a Dark Wood, by Eric Raymond. Difficult to describe, let's just say it's a modern take on the modern world, by way of modern economics. That I saw a lot about my industry in its pages made it engrossing for me, but the lyrical swordplay Mr. Raymond uses makes it a good read for anyone. Buy it here.

Don't like heights? You might want to skip these photos taken from ridiculous places.
