The Week: March 29, 2013

I’m out of town yet again this week and next – I will sincerely try to get some posts up and ready to go for that time, but if I don’t, I have a reasonable excuse:

I was in the Great Barrier Reef. Snorkeling. With my husband.

Yeah. YEAH. I know. I’m probably snuggling with a wallaby right now as you are reading this. Life is grand.

While I’m off getting a tan and befriending a koala or three, you enjoy these links:

—————

This video, of two teenagers rocking the Beatle’s Let It Be (on the cello and violin) is nothing short of amazing.

—————

A collection of some of the greatest senior portraits, ever. (Note: I really wanted senior pics before I graduated, but they cost something like $300, so I just got one snapshot of me wearing a crocheted rainbow top and a choker. Because that’s how we rolled in 1998, apparently.)

—————

How Arizona’s immigration laws are impacting Hispanic baseball players at spring training.

—————

Werner Freund has run a wolf sanctuary for more than 40 years – and has become, in many respects, part of the pact. These photos of him interacting with his animal cohorts are mesmerizing.

—————

Even in a mostly-digital world, staplers still have their place.

—————

What Ali Wore chronicles the outfits of a Turkish tailor living in Berlin. It’s absolutely delightful.

—————

Um, so this is pretty much the greatest news story, ever: Magneto is officiating Professor X’s wedding. Also technically accurate: Gandalf to officiate Captain Picard’s wedding.

—————

This thread on Quora is hilarious: “If I have to pee in the swimming pool, should I just pee?

—————

Every Woody Allen stammer from every movie, ever, in one video. It amounts to 44 minutes. Every one of them near excruciating.

—————

Whoa. Stand on Zanzibar, a sci-fi novel written in 1969, and set in 2010, makes a lot of eerily accurate predictions about our world.
