Things That Are Awesome, Vol. 35

The weekly roundup of internet fabulosity:

  1. My heart belongs to Cavaliers, but Corgis are everywhere this week: singing “Call Me Maybe” and popping up in places they don’t belong. Awww!
  2. I love Pimm’s, so you can imagine how excited I was to see this Pimm’s Cake. This just got moved to the top of my “to make” list.
  3. This one makes me laugh because it’s totally true: Dads Are the Original Hipsters.
  4. Another thing that is funny because it’s true: “Five Ways ‘You’ve Got Mail’ Ruined My Life.” Also, is it just me, or is You’ve Got Mail way underrated, as far as romantic comedies go?
  5. For sure, this was the funniest tweet I saw last week, from Mia Farrow and Woody Allen’s son.
  6. I’ve been getting pumped about fall movies lately – first I saw trailers for Great Gatsby, then Les Mis, then Django Unchained. And now this: Anna Karenina. It looks absolutely stunning. And I’m still marveling how they managed to make Jude Law (freaking Jude Law!) ugly.
  7. Underground New York Public Library – a collection of (perhaps stalker-ish) pictures of people reading on the subway. Fascinating.
  8. A few months back, I posted a video of a kid who got wait-listed at Michigan and made a video riff on the Jackon 5’s “I Want You Back,” asking to be let in. And guess what? He got in.
  9. This project is hilarious: movie trailers re-cut to make them a different genre. Think “The Shining” as a feel good comedy and “Mary Poppins” as a horror movie.
  10. If you are a tennis fan, you should be following Pseudo Fed on Twitter and reading the Pseudo Fed blog. It’s flat-out hilarious.

In search of more awesome? Look no further than the Awesome Archives.
