I’m swamped – positively swamped. But I’m kind of thrilled about all the things I have on my plate: loads of travel, and hopefully some delicious desserts, too. So while I try to track down an elusive (but supposedly amazing) ice cream shop, please enjoy a collection of links that I’ve gathered from the last week (and yes, I promise to tell you all about the ice cream, once I find it):

I’m enjoying the work of graphic designer Jack Crossing immensely. It’s stark and gritty, but not without heart.

The opening credits of The Office recut to look like a 90s sit-com. Makes you realize just how much television comedies have evolved (and how much they haven’t).

—————

Mischievous markers, trouble-making pieces of twine, and stubborn splotches of jam are just some of the characters you’ll meet in Christoph Niemann’s Haunted Household.

—————

Gasp! Is that a young Captain Kirk? William Shatner was just one of many now-famous actors who appeared on The Twilight Zone before making their big break. Check out Life Magazine’s photo montage of guest stars on the classic series.

—————

Broadway’s not just for gays anymore: if you haven’t seen Neil Patrick Harris’ opening for the 2011 Tony Awards watch it. And if you’ve already seen it, watch it again.

—————

This gif has me giggling like a madwoman. Someone needs to explain to me why Peter Dinklage isn’t in EVERYTHING right now.

—————

Because I can’t go more than a few days without mentioning Wiener: Slate has an interesting take on why male politicians get caught in sex scandals more often than their female counterparts.

—————

40 famous logos, and how they’ve evolved over the years. Personally, I think Nokia should go back to the fish.

—————

Let the feast begin! 10 foods you can allegedly make in your coffee maker. Quality of the resulting cuisine TBD.

—————

I’ve been trying to update Copywronged more frequently. If you haven’t checked out my oft-neglected photo blog of advertising mishaps, now’s the time.

—————

I’ve listened to this song four times today. And it’s not enough. “Can You Tell” by Ra Ra Riot. Listen. Thank me later.

—————

Alright – that’s it for me this week. See you Monday!
