Belated… !

This is great: How to Make a Life List You’ll Actually Do: A Comprehensive Guide. This too: 88 Important Truths I’ve Learned About Life.

Wow… When John Goddard was 15 years old, he made a list of things he wanted to achieve. Here’s his progress. How impressive!

So true (but then, everything Seth Godin says tends to be). The realization is now.

People who thought they had a valuable skill or degree have discovered that being an anonymous middleman doesn’t guarantee job security. Individuals who were trained to comply and follow instructions have discovered that the deal is over… and it isn’t their fault, because they’ve always done what they were told.

Love these photos of Debbie Harry & HOW ABOUT that Ted Bundy story?!!!!

Dads Are The Original Hipster makes me reeeeeeally happy.

Want to take the India Rock Cred Test for girls? I know you do!

Cutting Through Resentment, Faux Compassion and You by Bindu Wiles.

I love Alexandra. I really love her open-mindedness. It is delightful. Agony + (boys) + SUCCESS: 3 vignettes from a year on the verge.

Elvgren was one of the most incredible & prolific pin-up artists of the time. Have you ever seen his reference photos? It’s so cool to see how he altered the images & filled them in with his imagination.

Jayne Mansfield in her backyard. Aw.

Top Model Announces All-Star Season OH MY GOD. You won’t be able to tear me away from the television! I AM SO PSYCHED! My wishlist? Jade, Mollie Sue, Elyse, Melrose, Heather (Kuzmich), Elina, Analeigh… PLEEEEEEASE! Seriously, that would be the DREAM TEAM! (Though, almost all of these girls have gone onto legitimate careers, so I doubt they’d want to go through it all over again!)

Um… ew. Sorry, but that is nasty!

This plea from a single woman to men in Seattle is hilarious… & true!

Roll on top and start dry humping like a good boy should.

Hahaha. Oh, cynicism. 5 Kinds of Bloggers You Meet in The Blogosphere.

I’m always interested in David Barton… I am a member of his gym & it is one of my favourite places. Here’s a New York Times piece on his life & business.

This one is great for people who want to eat more vegetables but find life getting in the way! Staying Green and Healthy When Time Is Running Short.

I really enjoyed this Royal T mix (thanks Sam!).

WOW! Have you ever been to the Garden of Cosmic Speculation? Let’s all go to Scotland & have a tea party there, what do you say?

Well, this is just coo-coo. Karl Lagerfeld designs a hotel suite out of chocolate, INCLUDING (as if that wasn’t enough) a life-size CHOCOLATE replica of his lover. On the bed. Okay. Amazing. More in Karl news: I am pretty into this short interview, too.

I don’t even have time to go to the dentist. I’m busy but in a pleasant way. I’m the one who wanted to do all of it, so I can’t complain.

Hanna Beth put together an evolution of Betsey Johnson in photos. Yay!

New favourite thing on the internet: Life Lessons Learned From the 1968 Playboy Club Bunny Manual!!!!!!!!!!!!! EXCLAMATION POINT! “Bunny mother”! “Unkept tail”! If I was a fine young thing in 1968, I would have done ANYTHING to work in a Playboy Club!

Russell Brand is very clever — who knew?!

GOD I LOVE THIS.

Wheeeeeee!
