1. Happy May Day to everyone enjoying an eight-hour work day today. International Workers Day “is the commemoration of the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago in 1886, when Chicago police fired on workers during a general strike for the eight hour day” (although someone did throw a bomb at the police first, apparently. But still.).

2. If I were ever going to knit anything for my brother, this would be it:
I actually think these are machine-knit anyway, but check them out on the collector’s Flickr page of “promotional knit beer sweaters from the 70s and 80s.”

3. And more music to finish the week–this is a blast from my past that I suddenly wanted to listen to, and then I was 15 again and riding around with my friend in the summer, going to malls.
