Online Magnetic Poetry

Today we have another great recommendation from our long-time reader and occasional west-coast correspondent, Kate F.

This is one of those things that falls under the category simple but addictive (we should probably have a tag for that huh?). Magnetic poetry is awesome, so why not do it online. And you're not the only one moving things around: you don't have your own individual page, so any changes any one else in the world makes will show up on your page too. So maybe you'll start a poem and someone in Korea will finish it. Pretty cool.

Bizzarre Google Suggestions

Google Suggest is a surprisingly useful tool. I'd say I usually get about half way through typing in a search term before Google tells me what I was searching for. But sometimes Google comes up with things that are, well, a little odd.

Check out the Huffington Post's photo poll on the Most Inappropriate Google Suggests Of All Time. Make sure to submit any weird suggestions you've gotten.

Community: Spanish Rap

The flu is kicking my butt so please excuse the lack of eloquence. This is a clip from the new NBC show "Community" which, from my Hulu browsing, is proving to be surprisingly funny. Enjoy! (And please send me some soup).

Friday Drive In: Dave Eggers on Ted Talks

I just applied to volunteer for the New York branch of the amazing institution 826. So I thought this would be a good time to spread the word a little. The video tells the story of the organization better than I could so I'll let it do the talking.

In case you live under a literary rock, Dave Eggars, besides being the founder of 826 is also the man behind McSweeney's, "The Best American Non-Required Reading" series, and a few novels including his first and most well-known: A Heart Breaking Work of Staggering Genius.
