Friday Links

the kids playing with Lukka's ZomeTool (Creator 1)

Today I'm going to post some links, and I'm going to recycle them from last year back when I was doing the December Photo Project. I'm doing this because 1) December is it's own craziness, and 2) these are such good links I don't want anyone to miss them even though they were wedged between 25 photos. Enjoy your weekend!

*Artists play with their holiday food.

*Laniakea--the supercluster of galaxies that The Milky Way finds itself in, is not only beautiful, but mind-boggling. Watch this 4 minute video that is really well done. 

*Whether you can stomach Penelope Trunk's abrasive homeschooling arguments or not, her post "sitting is the new smoking" was pretty interesting.

* Mean tweets with Jimmy Kimmel is such a good waste of your time. This one, at :43 with Larry King made my stomach hurt I was laughing so hard. What?

*I am totally getting behind this trend of 'backstory' fairy tale movies. This Peter Pan one next summer looks really good. 

*You guys, this cookbook. Cough, birthday idea, cough cough.

*I'm not usually a fan of pop music or the radio, but Taylor Swift? Cutting ties with Spotify. Making awesome and ironic videos. Killing it. This will be named one of the best albums of 2014. Seriously surprised by how much I love it.

*This 3-minute video of a drone flying over Chernobyl was fascinating. And disturbing.

*Want your kids to be bilingual? Songs work really well, and they already know the tune to these ones!
