Steve McQueen, Old Records and Secrecy
One good weekend deserves another.
Hiding Messages in Your Facebook Pics
We have no idea why you’d ever secretly embed a private, password-protected message into a JPEG and then post that image on Facebook. Unless you’re in the mob. Or it’s your mistress’s birthday. Or because you discovered this Chrome plugin, which does exactly that. And because, hey, why not.

An Encyclopedia of Obscurely Good Music
Long ago, in the 20th century, people recorded and pressed their own vinyl records. Strange. Anyway, now you’ve got this 512-page tome profiling the obscure musicians who did that.
