Weekend Round-Up #64Posted: November 3, 2012
– This dude:
– A guy who dressed up as 50 shades of grey. Literally:
– Katy Perry and Shannon Woodward (of Raising Hope) as Jane and Daria:
– That’s… that’s not the real Kit Harrington, is he?
– Adorable Calvin and Hobbes:
– Speaking of adorable, how about this Bob Ross crochet doll?
– I didn’t find a lot of links this week, so just this one for some post-Halloween scare: photos from the past that prove history was haunted.
– Finally, this is the best tumblr ever: Cats That Look Like Pin-up Girls (warning: some may be NSFW)
BLOG: Artfully Awear by Ariel. This is not your typical “outfit of the day” blog – Ariel puts together outfits inspired by works of art; basically, it’s our Style Imitating Art challenge made into an entire blog, and she does it better than I could ever hope to do. I really want to ask her to join Style Imitating Art, but I’m rather shy about it… maybe my co-hosts could?
BOOK: “Dave Gorman’s Googlewhack Adventure” by, well, Dave Gorman. A Googlewhack is a combination of two words, as recognized by dictionary.com, which, when put into Google, only yields a single webpage as the search result (that isn’t a word list of any kind.) At best it’s a great distraction/procrastination tool, at worst it could put you on a crazy journey around the world like it did to Dave Gorman. I wouldn’t explain it any further, you’d have to read it yourseld to find out. It’s a quick, fun, and funny read, and it may be the first non-fiction book I’ve read that I think would make a great movie, sort of like The Hangover meets Eat, Pray, Love (I hate to use it as a reference, but it’s the only movie that comes to mind.) Oh and after reading it, I decided to find a Googlewhack myself, and I did it on the first try! (it’s Riggwelter Stomatopods, in case you’re wondering.)
SONG: “A Pound of Flesh” (Radical Face). I don’t know if the fact that Ben Cooper, the musician behind Radical Face, is from Florida has anything to do with this or not, but every time I listen to his music I always picture it as a soundtrack to some story set in the South, like something Carson McCullers would have written. Which is weird, because I don’t even read Carson McCullers. I only watched The Heart is a Lonely Hunter once and thought it was depressing as sh*t.
