The Week: Jan 13, 2011

It’s Friday the 13th, and there’s been shockingly little hockey mask wearing and chainsaw wielding in our next of the woods. I am perfectly okay with this (hopefully, the same will be said of the next two Fridays the 13th that will occur this year). The sun is shining here in Seattle, there’s frost on the ground, and it’s about as idyllic as you can get for January. So while I bask in the peace and quiet of my hometown, you enjoy these links.

I think I may have fallen in love with this red-headed siren and her cover of “Feel Good Inc” by Gorillaz.

Like I needed another excuse to love Girl Scout cookies, a troop in Colorado recently let a transgendered 7-year-old join their organization. Pass the Samoas.

—————

Giggling over the whimsical and clever work of artist Brock Davis (plus, hello? He shares a first name with possibly the coolest cartoon bodyguard ever). My personal favorites: an exhibitionist coffee cup and Stonehenge (made from Rice Krispies).

—————

Photographer Mark Laita’s “Created Equal” series focuses on the differences and similarities that bind us all together. The result is haunting, beautiful, and a little shocking.

—————

A map of Europe, according to penis size (Before you totally freak out: the measurements are in centimeters. Also … well done, France.)

—————

Blog reader Lauren sent me this adorable infographic about the anatomy of a cupcake.

—————

The comics on Bird and Moon are nerdy, strange, and altogether delightful. From arrogant plants to birds anxious about climate change, it’s worth a gander.

—————

I’ve been to NYC tons of times, but I’ve yet to try the infamous frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity 3. Fortunately, I can now make my own.

—————

Presenting the 25 greatest unscripted scenes in movies. Bonus: a young Matt Damon makes several appearances.

—————

A look at the shame (and redemption) that ensues when you find out it was your cell phone that interrupted the show.

—————

Every now and then I like to visit my friend Pete’s website. His work is a humbling reminder that I know squat about photography. And it’s also quite beautiful, so there’s that.

That’s it! Have an enjoyable weekend, folks. And should you encounter a Jason, may it be this one.

  • 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.
