Pictures like this blow my freakin' mind. Sentences like this do too: "This means that the light we're seeing in this image left the Pinwheel Galaxy about 21 million years ago - many millions of years before humans ever walked the Earth." Ooh, here's another good one too. Awesome.
I haven't listened to Fiona Apple in years, but after reading this article, I think I may have to give her a spin.
Watch this video of a recreation of Van Gogh's "Starry Night" using dominos. Pretty cool. The things people have the patience to do...
Have you ever illegally downloaded music? I know plenty of people who have (and do), but I've never done it myself. Always felt wrong. I love music, and so I love musicians and want to support them so they can keep playing music. That said, I will admit that I sometimes make music mixes for my sisters and friends. I justify this by the fact that I am typically introducing them to new bands, ones that they wouldn't be spending money on anyway. This blog post in response to this NPR Music article is interesting, and a good reminder that musicians deserve to be paid for their work.
Did you watch The Electric Company when you were a kid? I did, and it was nothing like the current version. I so clearly remember Bill Cosby and Morgan Freeman and the very best part of all...Spiderman. It was awesome. If you did watch it, check out this article for a trip down memory lane.

Okay, I had to add one more in: This will crack you up and leave you smiling. I promise!
