Weekend Links & Stuff

mics birthday

Saw my sister last weekend for the first time since Christmas, it was her 20th birthday and we met up with her and my family at Hard Rock Cafe downtown. Her boyfriend had never been there (and Josh and I hadn’t either because it’s Hard Rock Cafe) so she wanted him to see what it was like. It was actually pretty good and the TVs were playing 90s music videos so it was like watching MTV before school when I was 13. I can never be disappointed when I hear Chumbawumba or Nine Inch Nails.

Also, I feel like I look really old (and responsible/put together, as if I make good life decisions) and my sister looks really young in that picture. It’s funny because ever since she became a teenager people have been saying they thought she was the older one. I was 21 and she was 15 and distant relatives at a baby shower were asking me what I was going to do after high school and what she was doing once she finished college.

Anyway, on to some reads for your weekend.

+ First, I would like to give a quick mention to my sponsor glasses.com. If you’re hesitant about buying glasses online, they offer an awesome service that allows you to choose your 5 favorite pairs and have them shipped to your home for free so you can see what you like the best. I usually wing it when I order glasses online, but this is something I would consider trying out. I particularly like that there is a line of “ECO” brand frames made with recycled materials.

+ A group of creatives took their favorite bad feedback from clients and turned them into posters. These are hilarious.

+ Five kitchen skills that will make your life easier. Obvious, but definitely useful. I’d say 80% of the meals made in my home involve garlic and onion.

+ Pretty much.

+ Free, legally binding electronic signatures. Could be helpful for freelancers who have lots of contracts out there.

+ There is no such thing as climate change denial.

+ Is it REALLY hard for you to muster up the effort to work out? It might not be pure laziness. This makes a lot of sense to me.

+ I wear yoga pants because I am a lazy fuck who works at home and hates anything that isn’t cotton or spandex, not because I think it turns dudes on.

+ 40 of the most powerful pictures ever taken. This will make you feel a lot of feels.

+ Bill Nye’s house! This is some cute shit right here.

+ I remember all of these things as if it was less than a decade ago.

+ The 6 different types of procrastinators. I am definitely the “dreamer.”

    I can’t even explain the unwavering all-encompassing love that I have for Bill Nye. I watched him every day after school for about three years straight. My hero.

    I would love to see the bad feedback posters, but you accidentally linked it to a site about strength training for women.

    I buy all of my glasses online now. I’ll definitely have to check out glasses.com next time I’m in the market. That’s a fantastic idea! I love the sites that let you try them on virtually but it’s really no replacement for trying thim on in real life.

    Those posters are ridiculous! My favorite is the one where the client complains that they printed out the gif and it’s not moving anymore.
