Alt Wire is a morning digest of links and information collected and explained by a different guest blogger every weekday. We asked today's guest, Shakesville blogger Melissa McEwan, for five great links. Here's what happened (check back for Monday's guest, Paddy Johnson of Artfagcity):

Melissa McEwanFive links, they tell me. They asked me because they know I am a wicked, insurrectionary, feminist malcontent, and so they should not be surprised that my first order of business is breaking the rules. These are my seven deadly sins of the internets:

LustGlasvegas, my current unquenchable music crush, whose "Go Square Go" puts me in a Scottish pub during a footie match so certainly I check my shoetops for spilt ale.

GluttonyFeminist Literature, a compilation of the full texts of feminist literature available online, a virtual pâtisserie of delectables begging me to devour them whole and savor indulgently every nourishing morsel.

GreedFluevog, shoes in which to rule the world; my altar, my church, my Mecca, at which one day I will make these mine.

Sloth—The Chicago Museums, which, combined, can create a timesuck of link-adventuring so cavernous it is rivaled only by the devilry of YouTube's related videos lists.
