How can it be Friday again? Time is galloping at unnatural speed. At this rate, I will be 70 before I know it. All my picks this week are rather visual, maybe because I spent the week skimming rather than diving in. At least, I have the weekend to relax and take in some beauty. You?
One. Would you put this wallpaper on your walls? Sofagirl and I think it’s terrific (found on Wallpaperdirect).
Two. Where does car paint go to die? In jewelry and funky art apparently. When the excess paint, which is air-dried, is taken off a car, it hardens and can then be reused for more artistic endeavors. Don’t they look like semi-precious stones?
Three. Is good coffee a right or a luxury? Roy Choy’s Local, a fast food chain started in the Watts neighbourhood of Los Angeles, aiming to serve good food to underserved areas, argues it’s the former. Locol charges $1.00 for a cup of coffee as fancy as the one found at lofty establishments like Intelligentsia or Stumptown. If there is a will there is always a way.
Four. The Pulitzers were announced this week and David Fahrentold, a reporter for the Washington Post, won for his work aimed at debunking Trump’s opaque and/or false charity contributions. In the process, David tweeted pages from his notebooks, detailing his work. A possible example of why a laptop is not always needed (via Austin Kleon).
Five. How did the Easter Bunny come about it? He obviously underwent a rehabilitation since the Middle Ages, when the Easter Bunny came to kill you. Who knew? (thank you Eddie). Happy Easter!
