I know you just want to get to the damn links already but first please look at this video I made of the sky on Friday the 13th. I threw a Mastodon song over it because I was like “RYAN COME LOOK AT THE SKY I THINK THERE’S GONNA BE A TORNADO” and he was like “We’re not in Alberta, it’ll be fine” and then I was like “NO I SWEAR LOOK HOW FAST THE CLOUDS ARE MOVING”
Anyway at the same time as this, behind me, there was a major thunderstorm. The kind that makes dogs bark and cats hide under cars. My tip for you to see what I saw through this jerky-ass video is enlarge it to full screen size and focus on a power line. I was scared.
I just realized I’m one of those people who keeps filming the sky even when I think a tornado is coming. DAMNIT. Anyway here’s those links we were talking about.
Have you seen the universe’s twitter account? Hilarious.
I got so excited when I was just kind of bumming around on Tumblr and found this photo of the market I bought one of my favorite bags in, in Cholula, Mexico.
Game of Thrones for math nerds. (video)
Ryan and I have made it an annual tradition to watch the 20+ minute long … advertisement? for the Gathering of the Juggalos. I have an unhealthy obsession with Juggalos as is, but these videos are always hilarious. The way they exploit the lonely people, the slow thinkers and the misogynistic…good times? This year’s isn’t as good as this one though. Speaking of Juggalos, Coolio is one now apparently.
What I’d be like as a DJ. (video)
Florida is releasing mutant mosquitoes to combat Dengue Fever. How could this possibly go wrong? (That was sarcasm, in case you couldn’t tell.)
Smart Girls (video)
BBC tells us where we are on the global fat scale with this calculator. I’m like 45 billion times fatter than an Ethiopian lady, I’ll tell you that much. Surprisingly I’m built most like a lady from Portugal.
How to buy your first home. (part 1)
The most honest 3.5 minutes of TV ever. (video) Sorry American friends, but I loved this. BTW it pisses me right off when people say BC is the most beautiful place on earth too. It is beautiful but come on. It’s not the BEST PLACE ON EARTH, like our provincial slogan used to say. How can you even quantify something like that?
Spoon-billed sandpiper chicks. (video) D’awww those legs! And when that one sits down? Too cute.
I don’t even understand this printer…very cool!
The quietest place on earth. It sounds sort of creepy, actually.
This Shrek cake made me laugh out loud this morning. If you haven’t been through every single post Cakewrecks has ever done, you should just go ahead, take the time and do it. They’re so funny!
I live in Canada and I’ve never seen the Northern Lights. If I had a bucket list they’d be on it.
I really really love Gael Garcia Bernal and would love to see this film. (video)
On tipping. I read something once that really stuck with me. It said (much more eloquently than this) that now that you’re an adult, you MUST tip when you go out to eat. If you don’t have enough money or are too cheap, then you have no business eating out in the first place.
Thank friggin’ goodness sensible shoes are fashionable right now. My feet are smiling.
The spotlight dims and shyness sets in. I see this a lot with tattoo artists.
Cats and dogs and tigers and babies all together. As it should be.
World’s fastest everything. (video)
Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. I want to go to there.
I liked the kitty. The New Yorker talks about the Seinfeld episode about the New Yorker cartoons.
Check out the Tattoo Nation trailer (video) looks pretty interesting!
36 incredible places to see on earth. I don’t know why but Iceland just keeps coming up over and over on my (and Ryan’s) radar lately. I think we have to go to there soon. There are FOUR Iceland photos just in this post alone! Also, not to brag but I totally saw that Alberta one from a train window once and live just a ferry ride away from Vancouver and that crazy bridge.
And last but not least, check out this amazing short video on Los Muxes in Oaxaca, Mexico. Apparently there are places where being gay are … kind of accepted … in Mexico, other than DF.
