Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. I was really moved by this essay by Cristina AlgerĀ in the New York Times in which she remembers visiting her father’s office as a child.

2. I also loved the history of key design on Slate.

3. And speaking of design, check out 10 crazy and unusual book designs over at Flavorwire. Fab! (Hat tip: Lisa Romeo Writes)

4. If you’ve ever wondered what happens when you hit an egg with a baseball bat or explode a birthday cake, you’ll want to watch these video highlights from the Danish TV show Dumt & Farligt. (Hat tip: Very Short List)

5. If you enjoyed Texts from Hillary, you’ll also like Hey Girl, It’s Paul Ryan.

6. And if you want to smile, read today’s interview with the Bloggess on The Happiness Project.

 

Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. I’ll listen to author Anne Lamott talk about anything. Here’s an interview with her at the New York Times Motherlode blog where, among other things, she discusses her views on adulthood. Bliss.

2. Simon Doonan’s random meditation on why we really get tattoos over on Slate is hilarious.

3. Here’s a gorgeous graphic comparison of New York and Paris at The Guardian.

4. I really can’t say for sure why I was mesmerized by the Children Medieval Band performing a song about overdosing on drugs, other than my no longer latent obsession with Game of Thrones. Check out that drummer – wow!

5. Strangling My Muse had some terrific suggestions for how to mark World Creativity and Innovation week. I’m personally a big fan of the community story idea.

6. Via The Huffington Post’s Lisa Belkin, I’ve just discovered The Bloggess. Boy, does she look like fun…

Have a great weekend!
