Gosh, I’m SO BAD at doing scheduled posts. This is only the fifth Friday (since May 2010!) I’ve managed to do a Twitter round-up. I like the idea of doing it every week, but I’m forgetful.
Here are my favorite tweets from the past two weeks:
+ I love everything about this Danish home, as spotted on emmas designblogg.
+ I love the new Splendiferous Array of Culinary Tools poster from Pop Chart Lab (designers of the awesome Grand Taxonomy of Rap Names poster in my hallway).
+ Martha from Uniform Natural wrote this great post about SCARFSHOP and her thought processes that went into every aspect of its creation. Really inspiring!
+ Have I mentioned how happy I am that Kathy is blogging again?
+ LOOK! AT! THIS! HOUSE! (!!!)
+ There’s just something about watching a beautiful French girl put on makeup, you know?
+ Is it possible that it’s taken me 30+ years of listening to “A Prairie Home Companion” to finally realize how annoying and unfunny it is?
+ The performance by Janelle Monae, B.o.B, and Bruno Mars on the Grammys? YES PLEASE. (Also: Janelle Monae and Bruno Mars are going on tour together. Yay!)
+ Adrian Tomine on NYC: “I pay the exorbitant rent so I can stay at home and know that I could avail myself of all that culture if I wanted to.”
+ #mymostamazingqualityis my ability to procrastinate to the point of utter desperation and then pull off a half-assed effort at the last second.
+ Twenty-six album sleeves…recreated in LEGO.
+ Have you been following along with Juli and John’s trip to Japan? Great photos, great posts!
+ Crystal Renn on weight loss and backlash. I hate that she even has to address this.
+ The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger, with original narration by Randall. This is what all nature shows should be like.
+ I love this short film of Daniel and Valeria of Hindsvik‘s home. It was shot by Pascal Perich for Etsy, and it gives a really nice little peek into D&V’s living space. It’s amazing how different a house can look in video than in photos…
Nice round-up! The French girl is indeed beautiful.
To me, the show A Prairie Home Companion = ZZZZZzzzzzz…
In my social circle, that is a SHOCKING comment, but what can I say. Don’t like it, never have. Just find it dull to the max.
Since you mentioned it, just had to comment. 😉
Thanks for the interesting links.
This is the best tweet week ever! I couldn’t get enough. Especially that house on Remodilista!
I mean Remodelista. Sorry, had to correct myself or else it would haunt me forever.
Love the Adrian Tomine quote – so very true. The video is great. I was sure that they were going to pull up a pitchfork “American Gothic” style when they stepped out of their house. Someone is bound to leave a comment and ask that you make a video of your house. Would be way cool. Not that I am asking. 🙂
RANDALLLLLLL. I’m so glad he made it to the round-up. I think I’ve watched all those videos at least twice at this point.
Oh, that Elizabeth Roberts house tour– I was swooning over that one too. Gorgeous.
That house on Remodelista reminds me so much of your own home, Anna! In a parallel universe, it probably is your house! 🙂
Oh gosh, my house isn’t that fancy! But yes, in an alternate universe. 😉
glad you’ve come to jesus on PHC. can NPR itself be far behind? it is the one flaw in your flawless taste. faster pussycat, kill, kill.
I’m a massive fan of public radio (not necessarily just NPR), particularly WNYC.
You can keep Jesus—I’ll take Ira Glass and Joe Frank.
I was surprised to really like the Crystal Renn article – thanks for linking/tweeting.
They make an excellent point about weight fluctuating, and leaving her alone to be healthy – not at all what I expected.
I agree with you on the renn article…that is crazy that she must address this. I feel like people should have better things to do with their time than criticize a model 🙂
I love that video of the Ontario couple, the house is beautiful inside and out and I love the cat and the creaks! Outside the house looks so peaceful and beautiful, snow as far as the eye can see.
that danish house is gorgeous! i LOVE the painted wide plank floors and the vertical unfinished beams. yum.
Love the roundup! I’m curious to why you don’t like Prairie Home Companion. I find it to be a snooze-fest myself, but maybe not so much annoying.
In response to: “LOOK! AT! THIS! HOUSE! (!!!)”
gorgeous, so clean!
I just finished reading your entire archive (over the last couple of weeks) and wanted to say thanks! (Now what will I do with my free time in the evenings? Time to read The Brick House I guess.) I’m closing on a 1910 house this spring and am so grateful for all the inspiration and useful info you’ve provided. You may even be winning a convert wrt white floors (some, anyway) — which is pretty huge since my last reno project was extremely colorful. (The album we made when seeking renters: http://www.flickr.com/photos/leanderette/sets/72157625843621403/) Also, speaking of conversions, I had that same realization re PHC about 5 years ago.
The “LOOK AT THIS HOUSE” house… fabulous. Holy mackerel. Also, that little white Ikea bench with cowhide and antlers and stuffies… it’s sort of the way we’re going with the kid’s room- still scoping Ikea for a hide that’s white enough. Eyes peeled…
I loved the whole list, doll. GREAT!!
huge thnks for these links!
Prairie Home Companion is profoundly annoying and unfunny and as soon as I hear it, I turn it off. I’ve always hated it. Always, always.
High five for pointing it out. You rule.
How nice are you!? Thanks for the tweet! It makes me think that I should bite the bullet and join twitter. 🙂
I took time out of my schedule to check out every single link in this post. They’re great. Thanks. Especially the Japan link (imagine going to a place with sooooo much snow on your honeymoon, probably cold as well, does heighten the snuggle factor).
The Brown-stone somehow reminds me of the house Cynthia Nixon’s character in SATC moves into after she concedes to living in Brooklyn.
Oh, I love the antler. It’s seriously stunning to me.
YES. I am the only one of my annoying hipster friends who cannot stand PHC. I love This American Life though… 🙁
Hipsters listening to Prairie Home Companion…? Funny, I’ve always associated it with upper/middle-class senior citizens.
