Friday Links (More Visitors, Edition)

“Stay is a charming word in a friend’s vocabulary.”
― Amos Bronson Alcott

Another big week wrap up, and best of all my friend Lauren is coming into town! Lauren and I met at a summer Young Global Leaders program when we were 15 and we’ve stayed in touch ever since. She’s currently conquering the world of media and is flying to London from Hong Kong for work because fabulous is her middle name. I’ve got lots of food and wandering planned for us. How are you guys spending the weekend? Let me know in the comments and add any links that you think the minion coterie has to know about.

Lauren and I do manage to meet up in some fabulous places. Last one was in Park City, Utah, home of the Sundance Film Festival and an obscene amount of celebrities.

Let’s get a new look at some of the world’s old favorites, shall we?

WARNING. Do not read if you’re caught up on Game of Thrones, there are spoilers and I cannot stress that enough. Seriously. Don’t click through if you don’t want secret knowledge you’ll be angry to have. ‘K? Alright. If the modern media reported on “that thing that happened” on GoT.

Gorgeous find. What else is hiding under plaster elsewhere, I wonder?

Twitter friend and entrepreneurial girl crush Bethany of Love Grows Design wrote a really good piece on the fundamentally edited nature of online writing and social media that’s really worth the read. Something to think about both creating and ingesting content.

Behold, the thing that made Jeff burst into the loudest, most hysterical laughter I’ve heard all week. Do make sure the sound is on.

Channeling love for the old Batman TV series, now for the low, low price of $2200.

Huh, does this guy do house calls? Across the Atlantic? I’m pretty chronically sleep deprived these days…

The British Museum recently opened one of the biggest new exhibition in years, Vikings. We haven’t seen it yet (and we’re BM members, the shame!) but I’m enjoying the heck out of the many campaigns and bonuses the museum is running. Here – Viking yourself! (I kid you not, I got “Cadence the Little.”)

Friend and Friend of the Blog Caitlin Kelly writes about her recent experience in Nicaragua, and the lessons learned while working with WaterAid for Rewire Me.

 

One thought on “Friday Links (More Visitors, Edition)”

  1. Thanks for the link!

    Bethany’s point is a smart one, for sure. There’s a fine line between “Aren’t I fabulous?!” and “Woe is me.” I think people do want others to be inspired by — but not only those who are hermetically sealed and never seem to sweat. A little reality, and sometimes a lot, is a good thing.
