I’m fascinated with the quick-fire response of agile, but “untrained” (not at all always a bad thing) minds. That’s why working in corporate America is so entertaining. Zing! Drops mic. Throws up.

Video: Bon Joviver’s “You Give Love a Bad Name”

Well. It’s good.

Chain a bike to a post in Soho for a year, and watch what happens.

Just let it build.

Links for January 14, 2012: CES, tubing crow, birds in books, long sentences, Minneapolis skyway, puppy power

Aviary: Basically, these drawings of birds in books are completely awesome. BIRDS FOREVER! (I don’t care about birds.) [mefi]

Urban: Kottke linked to this article about how the Minneapolis skyway came to be. And now I link to it, too? Someday I will post my skyway-based screenplay, which centers around the search for the mythical(?) spot where the Minneapolis and St. Paul skyways meet (above the Mississippi river).

Writing: Should one write long sentences or should one write short sentences? Close readers of this site (zero are known) will note that I am partial to the short sentence, with occasional long-sentence interjections.

Music: Read over these popular songs re-written as Shakespearean sonnets. [liquidchroma]

Retro: In today’s things-that-look-like-other-things edition, these notebooks that look like VHS tapes are kind of good?

Work: I went to CES in Las Vegas this week. Mat Honan also went to CES this week. (Read the second link, if you have any time or familiarity with the event!)

Personal: For real. This living creature invades my very life next weekend. CAN YOU FEEL THE HATE EMANATING FROM HER?

Today’s links: F.
