Things That Are Awesome, Vol. 27

The weekly-ish roundup of internet awesomeness:

  1. Children with Swag. I love this tumblr, though it proves that a large portion of the child population is more stylish than I am. Sad.
  2. The best bucket list ever: 15 Things To Do Before You Die.
  3. If the characters of Downton Abbey were portrayed by dogs, this is what they’d look like. Hilarious. I especially love the Dowager Countess, Mary, and Cora. Nailed it.
  4. One more Downton Abbey thing – Downton Arby’s. Poor Edith, per usual.
  5. Eat It, Don’t Tweet It.” I admit it – I’m guilty of this, as anyone who has ever read this blog will know.
  6. A commercial for the new season of No Reservations. Anthony Bourdain may not be warm and cuddly, but his observations on and philosophy about travel are spot-on.
  7. In the Venus Project, classic paintings are re-done to reflect modern standards of beauty. I found this fascinating, and the one that really stuck out to me was Boticelli’s Birth of Venus. It’s one of my favorite paintings, but looks sad and diminished like that.
  8. Greg Laswell’s stop-motion music video for “Back to You” is fantastic. Also, I want to buy his new album, like now.
  9. Some people play Fantasy Football. I, however, am more likely to play Fantasy Supreme Court. Such a nerd.
  10. This video gives me chills – “Because It’s the Cup.” Playoff hockey is the best, and so are the Red Wings.
