July's Links to Love


I think my mom cried during this "So You Think You Can Dance."

Leipziger Buchmesse (Leipzig Book Fair--it's huge) creativity:

This lady poses her baby during her naps as if she knew what the baby is dreaming about.

Way too much work for a couch
. Why not just build your own, seriously?

Painting elephants:

Design your own textile


I love the trend of having popular musicians play with orchestras. (I just went to Ben Folds with the Utah Symphony, which was awesome.) Here's an example (Josh Ritter with the Minnesota symphony):

Weeping ukelele:

Lovely talent:

I don't remember if I ever posted this lovely video/song (I hope they got all those bouncy balls cleaned up):


Video on forgiveness:

Jane Austen fight club (made by Mormons, anyway):

Yes, I Love Technology:

Maiden flight of the first solar-powered plane

A driverless, solar-powered car race from Rome to Shanghai

I'm addicted to this word game.


Did you hear about the debate about Kafka's papers?

Best magazine articles ever

I think I'm going to write a letter to a punctuation mark.

A dating website where you're lined up by the books you like

Writers' houses

Which famous writer do you write like? (My first try said I write like Cory Doctorow, a Canadian science fiction novelist. I wonder if I would like reading someone who writes like I do. The second said I write like William Gibson, another Canadian science fiction novelist. Weird pattern. I wonder if it'll hold up.)


100 Best Movie Insults (sorry for the plethora of offensive words):

I always knew it was better to leave your bed unmade
. (There's really no point.)

"America: there's a better way. It's called Germany."

Don't argue with ibexes. They'll only make weird sounds and blow snot at you!:


  1. word bubbles is fun. posing sleeping babies is weird. loved the ukelele.

  2. I should've uploaded a josh ritter song with more of the orchestra involved... next time...
