Weekend Round-Up #65Posted: December 1, 2012
I’ve been neglecting Weekend Round-Ups all through November because of NaNoWriMo, but now that I’m done with that, I figure it’s time to get back to this.
– This awesome print:
– How adorable are this photo collection of a grandmother and her cat?
– This drawing and the quote make me seriously consider cutting bangs:
– Somebody get me this bookcase chair for Christmas, please?
– Speaking of Christmas gifts, how about these geeky phone cases?
– They’re recording the Neverwhere radio series and it’s the best cast ever (Benedict Cumberbatch plays Islington!!!)
– Another adaptation that got me excited: BBC just announced that they’re adapting Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell!
– Cool things that Google can do.
– This makes me giggle: what your favorite store says about you.
– This one is kinda old, but hilarious as well: US wars compared to 7 types of failed relationships.
BLOG: The Jealous Curator. This has become my go-to blog to discover new artists, as it features super cool works of art of every medium and style, some of which I will no doubt introduce to Style Imitating Art soon!
BOOK: These past few weeks I’ve been working my way through the “Anne of Green Gables” series. It feels a little redundant to review such a classic, but this is one I never grew up with, and I think I would feel completely different about it if I did. I enjoy the writing, but to be honest, Anne annoys the heck out of me, especially in the earlier books. I guess it’s because I was totally like that when I was little, all silly notions and sentimental about every little thing. Anyway, I do like it enough to keep reading all seven books.
SONG: “Fuerteventura” by Russian Red. This is the stage name of Spanish musician Lourdes Hernandez. I discovered her on MTV Live (I know, I didn’t know MTV was still playing music either!) and immediately felt in love with her simple, cheerful sound. I like this song because of how retro it is – it immediately puts in my mind pictures of 1950’s teenagers hanging at soda fountains and dancing at sock hops.
