Hmm. Does this go under the GAMES topic or the MUSIC topic? Whichever I choose, Dave will swap it.

While I happen to be a fan of fitness for the past 20 years or so and have put on some muscle, the goal is not quite about bodybuilding for me.
Still, there is some great information in this relatively long read.
If your goal is to lose weight, putting on muscle will build your metabolism (about an extra 50 calories per day for every pound of muscle gain). Sounds like nothing, but 5 pounds would mean 250 calories per day, even while sitting in traffic, sleeping, reading a magazine, etc.
If you want to just look better, again you can find some great information and advice.
If you just like some relatively entertaining reading, the article is worth it. Trust me, not a heavy lift.

A drifting man struggles to pull objects from the roiling sea below him and scrambles to keep the objects from slipping through his fingers. A stop-motion animation using textured and tactile materials, as well as personal imagery, that represents the progression of Alzheimer's disease. Inspired by my grandfather.

Jim Vorel at Paste Magazine really really likes MST3K, and has written up his definitive list of every episode, with commentary and clips (even a full ep or two), ranked from worst to first. While my pick for #1 came in second, it's a solid presentation of cult television at its finest.
These photos of ice-engulfed lighthouses are sure to send shivers down your spine. Formed under very specific circumstances, these pasty kraken emerge annually on the shoreline of Lake Michigan each winter. Their alluring formations are enough to entice the hot-weather-loving photographer, Tom Gill, to photograph their sculptural encasings every year.

Foghorn Leghorn, shivering at the thought of another cold winter in his dilapidated roost, decides to court the well-to-do Miss Prissy, but Prissy won't marry him unless he can prove he'll be a good father to her son, a bespectacled egghead genius who, by scientific means, bests Foghorn in every game they play.
