Things That Are Awesome, Vol. 21

The semi-weekly roundup of all that is awesome on the internet:

  1. Bring back Community! I mean, seriously, NBC.
  2. I am semi-obsessed with this sketch from last week’s SNL – “Bein’ Quirky with Zooey Deschanel.” All the impressions are so spot-on, but I think I love Kristen Wiig’s Bjork best. This line kills me: “I made a sweater for an octopus. Plus I left one extra hole for its dreams and ideas.”
  3. I adore Daniel Radcliffe because he’s so awkward and enthusiastic in every single interview his does. This one, with Andy Cohen, is great. I love that he can’t chose between Ron and Hermione!
  4. Sonia Sotomayor visits Sesame Street. This has been making the rounds in law school land, and I have to admit I think it’s great, in a nerdy way. I also love how there are comments on the video saying things like “I don’t think the Supreme Court has original jurisdiction over this case.” Oh, law school.
  5. What if people read articles from The Onion and thought they were real? This would happen. Things like this make me worry about the future of the human race.
  6. What really happened with Jack and Rose. SO TRUE. I know it’s just a movie, but she totally could have made room for him on that door. “I’ll never let go, Jack”?? Hello, you just did.
  7. 50 People, 1 Question – what makes you happy? I love how some folks seem baffled by the question, while others answer like it’s the simplest thing in the world. And I love the range of answers, from the silly to the philosophical.
  8. If you’re not watching Cougar Town already, you should be. Here are 10 reasons why. And in case those weren’t enough for you, how about 26 more? Seriously, watch it.
  9. I have said it before, but I think Mr. Carson is my favorite Downton Abbey character. Naturally, then, I would buy this CD in a minute.
  10. A lot has been said/written about Whitney Houston in the last week. But I prefer to let this speak for itself. Stunning.

Looking for more awesome? I’ve got your back.
