Roundin’ up the Randomness

Hello, my dear nerdlings! September is almost over! Bring on the itch-it-a-cop-it-a mel-a-ka mys-tic-a (promise me you won’t hate me for my obscure Hocus Pocus references)! On to my favorite kind of round-up: Randomness!

The video above comes from a Youtube promotion Lena Dunham is doing for her upcoming book release. She created a lovely series of Dear Abby styled advice videos covering everything from feminism to bad sex. Check the series out here. Not That Kind of Girl is on sale September 30th.

I have been waiting with bated breath for Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory by Caitlin Doughty ever since she originally made the announcement she would be releasing a death-related book! I marched my little death positive tookus right down to Barnes and Noble, forced the lovely lady at the help desk to retrieve the novel from the back for me, and greedily devoured each and every chapter. Oddly enough, I did this during lunch time at work. Why I thought I would be able to read about the ins and outs of embalming while eating a faux buffalo chicken sandwich (shout out to my nerdaterians! I just made that up. Not quite sure it works. You get the gist.)… well – truth be told that probably wasn’t the smartest idea (but I did it, nevertheless!)

The New York Times posted an article about overhauling end of life care. So important. Often overlooked.

Have you seen these bookish benches?! I am OBSESSED.  I love that they have them littered among trails.

Check out this abandoned train station in Paris.  I can’t wait to see what the public will do with this space!

And while we’re on the subject… what about these 22 beautiful staircases?!

Penmanship is on the decline. Say it isn’t so!

Loving this Net Neutrality Pin!

A hidden bookshop in New York!

$150 is a bit too pricey for me, but this Doritos pin is awesome!

Loving this article from The Art of Manliness on How to Create Your Own Rites of Passage.

 

And just because I can’t resist…
