Things That Are Awesome, Vol. 33

The weekly-ish roundup of all that is awesome from the internets:

  1. I never get tired of a good flash mob, and this one (inside the Copenhagen Metro) is particularly beautiful.
  2. If I could only see one movie in 2012, I would probably choose the Great Gatsby. The trailer just came out, and it looks amazing. Of course, I thought the last trailer for a Baz Luhrmann film (Australia) looked amazing, and look how that movie turned out (hint: not well).
  3. On second thought…the trailer for Les Mis also looks amazing. Sing it, Anne Hathaway.
  4. A Game of Thrones cooking blog. This might sound dorky, but I think that’s a pretty cool idea – and the amount of detail, time, and thought put into the website is incredible.
  5. And one more GoT thing – a comparison of the characters in Game of Thrones and Mad Men. All are pretty funny, but my favorite is definitely Hodor and Trudy Campbell.
  6. I love this list of beautiful song lyrics. Number 4 is from my all-time favorite song; number 7 is lovely; number 10 is not the Jeff Buckley song I would have chosen (I would’ve gone with lyrics from this one), but is still lovely; and number 22 might just be my number one, if I wrote the list.
  7. A fascinating study in contrasts: Where Children Sleep.
  8. I’m a sucker for a good marriage proposal video, and this one just may be the best I’ve ever seen.
  9. In honor of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, I thought this look back at some of her best ensembles was fun.
  10. Nicklas Lidstrom retired last week, and then took out this thank you ad in the paper. Pure class.
