Things That Are Awesome, Vol. 17

This week’s roundup of awesome things:

  1. Thought Catalog’s 20 New Year’s Resolutions for 20-Somethings. Never too late to adopt a few of these…
  2. Ray LaMontagne covers Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy. Unexpected and wonderful.
  3. I have always wondered how to pronounce L’Occitane, so naturally I loved this blog post.
  4. I kinda want to introduce this game the next time I’m out to dinner with friends – the first person to crack and look at their phone picks up the entire check. Of course, I am majorly guilty of this too. But it would be nice to make a change.
  5. To say I’m obsessed with Downton Abbey would be…putting it mildly, to say the least. That’s why I loved this quiz – which Downton Abbey character are you? (For the record, I’m a Matthew, apparently).
  6. And in case you hadn’t gotten enough Downton Abbey, please refer to this and this.
  7. Mad Men is coming back in March! Celebrate by admiring Pete Campbell’s bitchface and by re-watching old episodes while playing this drinking game.
  8. As usual, Beyonce can do no wrong. Her video for Countdown is amazing.
  9. When I reviewed the movie, I forgot to mention how fantastic the opening credits for the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo are. Check ’em out.
  10. The Best Picture You’ll See All Day. Ha!

And don’t forget the Awesome Archives.
