Hey everybody (all…three of you. Recommend this to more people, would you?) I’m back! Trying to (a) do this more often and (b) make it more interesting for you, the reader.
So I’m adding headers? Maybe pictures, later on.
Setting up a home recording studio. [Gizmodo]
ReadItLater turns into Pocket, a place for you to stash all those articles (like the ones I post!) for a moment until you can get to it. [Lifehacker]
PicMonkey does almost everything a basic user (aka up-to-and-including-hue/saturation) might want with a photo, online. Very intuitive, beautiful interface. [Lifehacker]
GadgetLust: Belkin Portable USB surge protector. [Lifehacker]
Pop Culture (Lit, Film, Art)
Bridging the gap between tech and pop culture is the lovely Michael Fassbender in a new promo for Prometheus, which I can’t wait to see. [ToplessRobot]
Some literary classics, done up in slang. For example: “Avast ye readers! Ye may call me Ishmael. Some years ago – belay how long precisely – havin’ little or no doubloons in me purse, and nothin’ particular t’ interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see t’ watery part o’ t’ world.” [Flavorwire]
As one of my day-jobs, I work in a pretty cool public library. But these 25 beautiful public (public!) libraries from around the world blew me away. [Flavorwire]
Some awards for books were handed out this week. Also known as 2011: the year Columbia thought fiction sucked.
Lifestyle (dear lord someone help me come up with a better section title)
Because I think I might be moving soon, these city-based laundry/bike/grocery services might soon become very important. [ApartmentTherapy]
And of course I’ll need really really really nerdy / awesome posters and indie t-shirts to live there. [Redbubble] #teampeetapotter
Also, might need a custom-made dress, too. For under the $90 mark, b/c rent is ridiculous, did you know? [Jezebel]
Snow Leopard Tickled. Nuff Said. [Jezebel]
Marines with kids / animals. [Jezebel]
Wolves question the race to the bottom: Uggs?
Thaaaat’s all folks! I am sort of in the process of revamping this blog, so I am taking suggestions. More pictures (warning: they will all be from my instagram. faux-filters ahoy!)? More tech? A better title for “lifestyle”? An actual update schedule? Come at me, broskis.
