The Week: August 16, 2013

It’s Friday! I’m in Vancouver for the weekend, visiting friends and eating way, waaay too much (too much sushi, too much Malaysian food, too much dessert). It’s downright lovely, as long as we don’t think too hard about the brutal exchange rate.

While we celebrate Canada’s strong economy (and whimper about the decline of the American dollar), you enjoy these links.

What happens when male authors are asked the questions usually given to their female counterparts? Whack Magazine takes a look, and the results are hilarious.

You’ve probably seen this by now (I’ve been holding on to it since last week, since I didn’t post a round-up then), but in case you haven’t: a hilarious take on what happens when an American football coach coaches soccer.

The Mumford and Sons video for their new song, “Hopeless Wanderer” (starring Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman,Will Forte, and Ed Helms) is so funny, you’ll almost forget how good the music actually is.

This Chrome browser extension changes all the images on a webpage to ones of Ryan Gosling. You are welcome.

David Marsh is searching for grammatical perfection. He finds that it isn’t at Tesco.

—————

The Whitney Museum currently has a life-size installation of Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks in the bottom of the Flatiron building. Rand is whining that we aren’t in New York right now.

—————

Photographer Esther Lobo creates Rorschach prints with food. All I see is butterflies. Lots of yummy butterflies.

—————

And speaking of food: an ever-growing list of slang words for the act of throwing up (via The Vomitorium, I suggest you view it at your own discretion, because some of the expressions are a little … graphic).

Kim Brooks explores what life is like married to a misanthrope.

The most beautiful Craiglist Missed Connection, ever.

Gotta go. There’s still some sushi left in this city for me to devour.

  • Okay, I'll admit: I really like how these came out. I need to get more adventurous with glazes, but I'm so digging this shape.
  • A sneak peek at the photoshoot that @hayleyyoungshotme did this morning at @majesticbaytheatres. We're going to be featured in an issue of Seattle Magazine early next year - about Seattle couples. Super excited. Details and more of shots of amazing hair as we get closer to the publication date.
  • Couldn't see what the barber was doing, but when he said "You want a design?" I replied, "HELL YES" and this happened. I'm delighted with the results.
  • Happy Halloween from the Joker and Harley Quinn, and to hell with the misogynistic manbabies out there.
  • First photo ever tagged of us on Facebook. Circa 12 years ago. Can we talk about how I've aged like an overripe piece of fruit left in the sun, but @randderuiter has only gotten hotter?
  • I call this look "I just ate a whole bunch of Violet Crumble and now I'm about to fall asleep from the sugar crash."
  • New personal slogan.
  • Do we want to leave Italy? No. Did we eat enough pasta to sustain us until next time? Also no.
  • The sky really is that blue. And the towers really are that slanted. #Bologna
  • Fried anchovies: accomplished.
