The Week: January 28, 2011

It’s been a good week. I can’t quite call it great, because there’s serious crap going on (see: Egypt), and I think I’d be remiss to go on and on about my personal successes in the wake of it. But I had a good week.

And in that spirit, here are a bunch of links that pertain to nothing substantial (because sadly, the substantial stuff this week wasn’t fun. Again, see: Egypt), but they will, I suspect, make you smile. That’s worth something, right?

Check out these clips of adorable little kids re-enacting the five Best Picture nominees. It might be because I have a sweet spot for James Franco (he is numbers 1, 3, 4, and 5 on my list of Top 5 Celebrities With Whom I May Ignore My Marriage Vows), but the one for 127 Hours is head and shoulders (and arms) above the rest.

Be an optimist … prime.

Don’t even think about clicking this next link unless you had a fast computer and an even faster connection. Once you’ve got those down, check out Jeffrey Martin’s 80 Gigapixel 360-degree shot of London. It’s dizzying.

———————

I’m really digging Skelewags – an adorably creepy urban art project, in harmony with its environment (think Edward Gorey meets Banksy.)

———————

Can a photo be a mantra? Because this is mine for the day: Don’t be a kitty. Be a lion.

———————

Christopher Elliott talks to a hotel reservation agent, who reveals that getting the lowest rate on a room isn’t always as easy as it might sound.

———————

You had me at “cheesecake stuffed chocolate covered strawberries.” Hell, you had me at cheese.

———————

Created a brilliant work of art, but can’t figure out what to call it? Try the Random Title Generator. (And for the record, if anyone creates a book/movie/album called The Pirate’s Planet, I would buy the HELL out of it.)

———————

Dear Martha: there’s an easier way. It’s called NUTELLA. But for those of you who want the recipe in case you need to make a huge batch entirely for yourself for your friends and loved ones, now you have it.

———————

Moss graffiti: the green way to tag buildings.

———————

Cee-Lo Green’s F*ck You, in sign language. (Note: the girl ROCKS it.)

———————

I really, really want this poster of doodles of Bill Murray, in some of his greatest roles (by the brilliant Derek Eads.)

———————

In my house, we call that chutzpah.

———————

And that’s it for this week. See you Monday!

  • 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.
