Another month, another list of recent things I love on the internet. Mostly Youtube things this time because, really…how good is it to sit on your bed with a cup of tea watching people being brilliant while the weather outside is getting horrid. Oh, and of course
when you’re putting off uni work. Please make sure to check the links out, they’ll hopefully make your day!
The photo was taken yesterday near my sister’s place, she has so much nature in her area and the mist looks a bit magical like in the ending scene of Pride & Prejudice, don’t you think? Or a bit Halloween-y maybe?
does a brilliant piece of spoken poetry on a bit of a not-so-very-happy topic, but really (!) good anyway.
The curious case of misquotation is about the quote that is going around, and around on the internet that goes like: “I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
The quote instantly leads to the story ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’. Yet, there was no such line in the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The story in the link explains everything, if you’re interested.
If you’d like to watch a rather neat video of Steven Merchant and Joseph Gorden Levitt over at Jimmy Kimmel where they do a rather awesome lip sync battle, click this, please! You will most likely love it, it’s a bit long though (around 9 mins).
Another link to Youtube! Did you guys follow the Pemberly Digital folks with their Lizzie Bennet Diaries? Well now they have started the Emma version: Emma Woodhouse. Episode one just came out, but Knightley has already made an impression: woot woot! Please do check out if you like to see the new adaption of Jane Austen’s Emma!
My friend Irene, the one who’s currently in Seoul, posted a good reminder on her blog recently. Sometimes when you’re a student, it’s hard not to procrastinate too much. I really need to put this list on my wall.
This is a bit of a joke really, I don’t know if you guys know but I study Cultural Heritage which has a lot of art in it too and I only had half of this right, how sad is that? I’m curious to your scores though, on whether you can tell the difference between modern art and paintings by toddlers.
And this is just something I want all of you to remember yourself. You guys aren’t everybody else. :)
