Friday Fun Links

August 20, 2010

I thought I’d just post a few links to some great things on the internet today. Let’s get started with the awesomeness!

  1. Paranoid Parrot I wonder if I should be concerned with how many of these Paranoid Parrots posts I’ve actually thought about. But I love all the crazy blogs now that take a few completely random things and make something hilarious (like SelleckWaterfallSandwich).

    As a fan of Criminal Minds, this one rings very true.

  2. Sufjan Stevens It feels like 30 years since Sufjan came out with something new. On August 23 he’s releasing a new 8-song 60-minute EP and you can hear the entire album at Pitchfork. Be still my heart.
  3. Haters Gonna Hate This started as an animated gif and made the rounds all over the internet. They made it into a print which promptly sold out. But it’s a great reminder to anyone who is as affected by negativity as me.
  4. Ellis Island: Ghosts of Freedom Stephen Wilkes took photos of the hospital ward on Ellis Island over the span of five years. The decay is amazing and reminds me of the project 100 Abandoned Houses from Detroit. At the exhibition of Wilkes’ photos in Philadelphia they’re also showing original photos of the people going through Ellis Island by Lewis Hine.
  5. Cupcakes and Cashmere This is a nice reminder to remember to be positive, rather than dwelling on the negative (which is such an easy thing to do when you have an entire internet on which to be negative).
  6. And last but not least: A wonderful video of a 3-year-old reciting “Litany” by Billy Collins. If this kid keeps this video until college, you better believe he is going to be one popular catch.

      I would go with something from Keats for two reasons: It will ensure he’s popular with the ladies later in life, but will weed out anyone who isn’t smart enough to know who Keats is (and therefore not be impressed with his memorization). 🙂
