The Week: June 15, 2012

Rand and I have spent the last few days jumping around the coast – from Seattle to California to Colorado – and in the next few days, we’ll do the exact same thing in reverse – Colorado to California to Seattle.

It’s kind of like doing The Electric Slide, but on a very large scale. I think. (I don’t really know how to do The Electric Slide, but that site is AMAZING.)

While we’re off doing that, please enjoy these links.

An interesting question I never even thought to ask: When did the thumbs-up become the signal for hitchhiking?

—————

Bizarre, a little creepy, and altogether fascinating: 1800s ghost mother photography.

—————

These public-transportation-token-necklaces are amazing – and really similar to one I got at that Brooklyn Flea Market (plus, you don’t need to haul your butt all the way to NYC for one).

—————

Through September, Burger King will be offering a bacon sundae. I am sufficiently horrified and intrigued.

—————

I’ve been singing this ditty about online haters (lyrics completely not suitable for work) all darn week. My favorite line: “You wished me cancer/And misspelled cancer.”

—————

Alfred Hitchcock, directing the MGM lion.

—————

A fascinating look at how Facebook complicates relationships between estranged family members.

—————

Positively swoon-worthy Community fan art.

—————

Ari Seth Cohen takes photos of well-dressed New Yorkers and posts them online. But, unlike most fashion bloggers, his subjects are 60+ years old. His site is proof that with age comes fantastic style.

—————

Why smarter people are more likely to make stupid errors.

Oh, and one more thing: Rand and I will be attending the Travel Bloggers Exchange conference this weekend in Keystone. Please come say hello. Rand will be speaking, and I will be wandering around in search of unattended baked goods. I forgot to pack business cards, but I can offer you piece of gum with my email address hastily written on it.
