Ok…it’s been a while.  Here we go.

Just found what’s going to keep me occupied for my 20+ flight to Thailand next month. Genius!

The Ultimate Guide to Writing Better Than You Normally Do – Fantastic.

Wow, this video of an elderly man reacting to hearing music from his era is powerful and touching to say the least.  Don’t tell me that art can’t help change the world.

Have you listened to Gotye yet?  If not, this video will give you every reason why you should.  (In the words of Ben Thomas, it is “holy crap amazing.”  I agree.)

Check out these Muppet chalk art murals on the walls of the Sesame Workshop office in NYC.  I want one.

Timeless Tag Designs.  It’s about time they get noticed.

A coffee faucet that brews the perfect cup of coffee.  Hmmm…this is kind of resonating with me.

The NYC’s Department of Records has released more than 870,000 images of NYC dating as far back as the mid-1800′s online.  These are incredible. More here. (via Kottke)

And lastly…Bookmobiles of the World.  Yes, I think this is cool.  Check out the one from Kenya.
