Things That Are Awesome, Vol. 11

Some things I think are really awesome on the interwebs this week:

  1. A boxing match between Jack Donaghy and Ron Swanson would be the best thing EVER. And Ron Swanson would win, obvi.
  2. Dueling Snow White trailers: I think Mirror, Mirror looks the best – Julia Roberts is funny, Lily Collins looks perfect as Snow White, and Armie Hammer basically seems made to be a Disney prince. I can’t get behind the Kristen Stewart one because, well, it stars Kristen Stewart. (Fact: I have only written a letter to a magazine once in my life, and it was to Vogue after they put Kristen Stewart on their cover. I was outraged. Vogue! How could you make such an egregious error??)
  3. Dammit, Beyonce, how did you get to be so awesome? (Yes, I cried the first time I watched this. And maybe the second.)
  4. If I haven’t mentioned it yet, one of my favorite books ever is Peter Mayle’s A Year in Provence. I’ve always wanted to visit the region, but this post (5 Villages Not to Miss in the Luberon, Provence) makes me want to go even more. I have serious wanderlust.
  5. An Anthony Bourdain profile. I used to really dislike him (mostly because I think I would be terrified to meet him), but he’s grown on me. Over the summer, I watched countless episodes of No Reservations. As it turns out, he’s pretty great (and he knows Rachel Ray is evil, so he gets major points for that).
  6. Totally nerding out: a quick behind-the-scenes look at Game of Thrones, season 2. Can’t believe it’s not on until April!
  7. This is awesome: a series of very cool illustrations demonstrating Paris vs. New York. I think my favorite is Parisienne vs. Mad Men.
  8. These Live the Language videos are very cool – and make me want to book a trip somewhere (anywhere) ASAP.
  9. I find this interview so amusing. Daniel Radcliffe is such a dork, in the very best possible way. Love him.
  10. I totally love 90s nostalgia. And all these things are so true, especially the Beanie Babies one. What were we all thinking???
