The Internet, it seems, is a nigh-infinite source of cephalopod related material. If you, like myself, are a ceph-blogger that has gotten behind on things, the thought of diving back into the fray can be rather daunting. However, I have so much cool material I am dying to share with you, that I’m taking the plunge anyway!

If you are reading this blog, you already know that cephalopods are awesome…and why they are awesome. (And that is why YOU are awesome!) However, it is always nice when someone, such as BoingBoing contributor Maggie Koerth-Baker, expertly summarizes the amazing features of our squishy friends. This pithy video is the short version of “Those Fabulous Octopus Brains,” a 30 min presentation she gave last August for a University of New Mexico IGERT symposium.
If you want to see the original full-length presentation, you can find it here.
I know I’ve let this blog languish a bit recently, and I thank you for sticking with me. Over the past few months I have collected literally hundreds of links to cool examples of cephalopod art, photography, and miscellaneous awesomeness. Over the next week or so, I plan to flood your RSS reader with a veritable swarm of new posts (although I guess “shoal” might be a more biologically apt term). I also haven’t forgotten about the Architeuthis Across America project…I just need to get my house in order first.

This dapper fellow is only available for three more hours! So, if you want a shirt featuring a moustachioed and bemonocled cephalopod for only $10—AND WHO DOESN’T?!?—you need to act fast! This is the first shirt from Ript Apparel that I’ve featured, and I don’t know much about them. They appear to use the TeeFury model—a new shirt every day, available for just that day.
Eventually, I’ll get back to posting things other than t-shirts…

Hey there! It’s the first post of 2011, and what better way is there to kick off a new year than with a new Threadless shirt? Here we have a grizzled and scarred mariner somberly reflecting on the Kraken that destroyed his ship…that or it’s not tobacco in that pipe!
$20 Black Regular Fit Guys Tee, still available in all sizes at this time. Buy it now from Threadless!
Also, while I’m here, I thought I should mention that the last Threadless shirt I featured–“Quick! Disguise!”–is currently on sale for a mere $10!
