Things That Are Awesome, Vol. 39

The weekly roundup of awesome ways to waste your time on the internets:

  1. According to Coveteur, the fashions from Clueless may be coming back into style. As this is one of my all-time favorite movies, I can get behind that. I also cannot resist the opportunity to quote the movie, so I’ll leave you with this gem: “That was a stop sign.” “I totally paused!”
  2. Please scroll through this slide show: The 17 Funniest Descriptions of Interview Subjects. I feel particularly bad for the reporter dubbed “The White Ho.”
  3. 25 Animals Who Are Genuinely Interested in What You Have to Say. Because funny/cute animal pictures never get old.
  4. This is an amazing cover of Billie Jean. The video is a slow burn, but wait for it.
  5. What would you take if your house was on fire? The Burning House blog chronicles the answer to that question from different folks. Fascinating.
  6. A mashup of Call Me Maybe and Somebody I Used to Know proves to be a surprisingly brilliant combination.
  7. Hilarious ID Badge Photos from London Olympians. I have to say I found Andy Roddick’s particularly amusing.
  8. This video, Corgi Flop, brings a smile to my face every time I watch it (which, ahem, might be embarrassingly often). One, the corgi is wearing a life jacket. Two, look how his little legs fly up!
  9. Consider my mind blown: Why “Saved by the Bell” Is All a Dream.
  10. And finally, two videos of Olympians being adorable and awesome: the USA women’s soccer team dancing to “Party in the USA” and the swimming team rocking out to “Call Me Maybe.”

  1. From among the 25 cute animals, loved the Loris and Seal the best! And I just adored ‘A Sister’s eulogy for Steve Jobs’ link from your earlier post. It was heart rending.
