Wednesday Roundup 4 April 2012
Here's where my internet wanderings have taken me since last Wednesday. I hope you see something you like.
From listsofnote.com, a list of brain-stormed names for Disney's 7 dwarves. I particularly liked "Dumpy" and "Snappy." http://bit.ly/GJSDFQ
An accounting of funny and odd writing habits of a few famous authors. Eudora Welty practically quilted her stories together. http://bit.ly/GWA55Z
Marathoning Suffragette! Sort of!
This article is a great and short telling of the first woman to run the Boston Marathon, 5 years before women were allowed to enter the marathon. She was courageous, but it's a good think her football-playing boyfriend was with her. http://n.pr/Hkvcgg
Movie Posters! Again!
Graphic designer and artist Laz Marquez re-imagined movie posters--using black, white, and red--for all 10 movies nominated for best picture for the 2011 Academy Awards. I think I like the Toy Story 3 the best with Woody striding like a boss. http://bit.ly/fyO3xg
The same designer also did a "Goodbye Tribute Print" for Harry Potter. I particularly liked the crack in Harry's glasses. http://bit.ly/pXktWY
This map is one of the most mesmerizing things I've seen on the internet. It tracks the wind speeds all over the country and represents the speeds with a super neat, wormy graphic. If you hover over the map, it will tell you the exact wind speed at a specific latitude and longitude. http://hint.fm/wind/
My favorite Pinterest pics this week involve Paris, vintage fashion, and Doris Day. Ms. Day turned 88 yesterday, and she's alive and kicking in Carmel, California. I love her so.
