Links, Links, Links!

11 Apr

Are you getting tired of reading the things I write? Well, first off, you are reading the wrong blog. Either way, here’s a list of links to things that aren’t by me!

-Actually good advice: 31 Things I’ve Learned in 31 Years

-Lauren turned a terrible situation (NOSEBLEED!) into comedy gold.

-Joy the Baker’s recipes are always great, but I’ve been thinking a lot about making these Salty Sesame and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

-I really love Michael Cera. I don’t understand why anyone would dislike him. His seems to really go in for absurd, strange humor, he has a good straight face, and his real personality is a mystery. I mean, what is Michael Cera doing right now? I wouldn’t even hazard a guess. His episode of WTF with Marc Maron is a keeper!

-I hope you’re reading my brother’s blog. He wrote about his Death Row Meal.

-Are you guys on Pinterest? I am! I’m medium-active on it, and I really enjoy it. You may have heard that it’s mostly used by women, which is why everyone’s so dismissive of it. Of course any social networking site used primarily by women must be totally vapid and useless! Whatevs, it’s a good place to put my Cher pictures.

-I love this article on Time.com: How We Can All Be ‘Creative Types’.

-Rob Delaney’s rules for How to “Make It” in Comedy are basically good advice for just about everything.

-I’m really into this song by the band Sucre. It reminds me of a less-dark St. Vincent.

-I know I wrote about how much I love the JV Club, but the episode with Gillian Jacobs? Oh, Lordy. I laughed out loud, alone in my car, at her stories about her grandma. This will make you fall in love with Gillian Jacobs, I’m warning you. I’ll say it again: this is a great podcast!

My friend (our friend!) Lauren wrote a wonderful article about the lovely Emily St. John Mandel for Overflow magazine. Lauren is the best writer/editor (double threat) I know, and Emily St. John Mandel wrote a book I absolutely loved called Last Night In Montreal. Nancy Pearl loved it, and you will too.
Emily St. John Mandel is kind of impossibly beautiful, right?

Right. Check out the article!
