WOW. I just stumbled upon the work of Feg Murray while looking up pictures of Kiki Cuyler on google image search. I am blown away. I was just telling Lei-Leen yesterday about how I wish I was born 80 years earlier so I could have been a newspaper comic artist, which is what I really feel like Every Hall of Famer is at it’s heart. And then today, I find this. Feg was primarily known for his “Seeing Stars” series, which featured Hollywood celebrities in a format similar to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. I can’t find much more info on these baseball drawings, but I am so inspired right now! I just want to draw for days.

Guys, I think I just stumbled upon the lord and savior of "unnecessary" quotation marks while reading the comments on this cute picture James Franco just tweeted.
"BONUS": Excerpts from her facebook profile:

I AM “LOVING” THIS HERE “WEATHER” WE ARE HAVING TODAY!
ALCOHOL “SUCKS”!
A “CLOVE” OF “GARLIC” A DAY WITH LOTS OF “RAW” ORGANIC PRODUCE WILL KEEP THAT WHITE COAT AWAY

This particular vanity plate makes me smile every time I pass it on my street. Plus it’s a mini cooper, which is really the only type if car I have ever loved.

Cool Tools: The Best Magazine Articles Ever

This is why I love the internets.

1. Paul Rudd never stops being cute to me.

2. This is really, really funny. Like, I’m trying to be quiet so I won’t wake up my sleeping boyfriend but it still made me giggle out loud.

3. I kind of wish computers were like this in real life.

chillout song

Fun little song made by the internet.

Sometimes I get really cynical and then things like this come along and my hope in technology, humanity, and the intersection of the two is restored and then some. Super, super sweet little project. Go listen!

baseball has been good to me today

Even though my fantasy team suxxxxx: 

- Flip Flop Fly Ball makes me lol with it’s joke about this. 

- this interview with Mauer is adorable.

- found baseballs.

- great Rob Neyer interview with Josh Wilker of Cardboard Gods on ESPN.

- a really, really great post on good ballplayers being bad people (Bryce Harper), good ballplayers being good people (Joe Mauer), and kids having a well-balanced set of interests, on Pitchers & Poets.

The joy of print

Eggers and I are of the same mind here. I have no interest in e-books. I never want to give up the weight, beauty, and ritual of holding an actual book and flipping an actual page.

bobulate:

Dave Eggers on the calmness of print:

I like…the calmness, the authority, the curation of a daily paper, where I know I’m not going to be sent into something totally trivial and non-germane.

He offers four ideas associated with print, but readily applicable to any platform:

1. Comprehensiveness and containment
2. Length and thoughtfulness
3. Professionalism and expert curation
4. Physicality and variety

But then:

“I don’t want to read online,” Eggers said. “I don’t want to wake up and look at a screen. I feel like as a society, we try to put everything on that same goddamn screen, and pretty soon we’re going to be eating on the screen or, like, making love through the screen. It’s just sort of like: ‘Why does everything have to be on the screen?’

Some things, indeed, are not meant for the screen.

Sketchy Bunnies is so much worse/better than Sketchy Santas. Holy crap. It was really hard to pick just one picture. My mom and I just LOL’d all over the place.
