Things That Are Awesome, Vol. 49

The weekly roundup of incredible internet finds:

  1. This article, America’s Slippery Slope into Britishisms, is great. I am afraid to admit that I use many of these phrases – in fact, my old clients used to tease me for constantly saying “no worries” (Come on! That’s not really British, right?)
  2. This is weird and wonderful: Tom Hanks Performs Slam Poetry about Full House.
  3. Downton Abbey impressions. This guy is so good – I especially love his Mrs. Pattmore and Mr. Carson. (Warning: don’t watch if you haven’t seen Downton Season 3 yet – there are some spoilers).
  4. This is fascinating: Scenes from WW2 Photoshopped onto Today’s Streets.
  5. Urban Outfitters is now selling Lisa Frank products. I never shop at Urban Outfitters but suddenly have an urge to go…
  6. In celebration of this week’s holiday, The Halloween Candy Hierarchy. My favorite is #10: “I honestly have no idea who goes in the candy aisle and comes out with a Crunch Bar or a plain M&M, but I assume they’re Republicans.”
  7. The gag reel for New Girl Season One. I want to be friends with this cast.
  8. The 45 Best Pictures Of Scared Bros At A Haunted House. So good.
  9. Though it took me awhile to warm up to him, I grew to be a big fan of Anthony Bourdain and No Reservations, which ends its run this fall. Here’s a look back at some of his favorite shows. My favorite? The 2006 Beirut episode, which was one of the more powerful things I’ve seen on TV.
  10. As everyone in America undoubtedly knows, it’s Election Eve. If you’re still undecided, let Chris Rock help you figure out who to vote for.
