It’s Friday, and it’s the end of the month! I am so behind on blog posts, I have a whole bunch of end-of-month posts that I had planned and then things got away from me, so they are going to be a bit late! For now, it’s time to share my favourite links from this week.
I wanted to embed this video of every winner of the Best Visual Effects Oscar, since it was introduced in 1977. But WordPress doesn’t like Vimeo, so I had to link to it instead. You should definitely watch it, because it’s super cool.
If you’re a fan of The West Wing, the words ‘Big Block of Cheese Day’ will make perfect sense to you. A couple of days ago, the White House launched their very own Big Block of Cheese Day, where White House officials took to social media to answer people’s questions. This is pretty much the coolest thing ever. If only John Spencer had been around to be in the video.
Something I have long suspected to be the case: Everything we need to know, we learned from Disney movies.
Another great story; a 64 year-old Istanbul man painted a staircase in rainbow colours, and when city officials sent workers to repaint them in standard grey, Twitter mobilised and people came out to repaint them.
Instagram of the week: cintascotch. Javier Perez creates art around everyday objects.
