Of Note This Week

by anna on September 26, 2009

This "urban furniture" is the work of SpY, an artist from Madrid.

Each week, in addition to the links you can see by spying on my Google Reader, I compile a list of posts that interested me and post them here on Saturday. You can check out the ABDPBT Personal Finance, ABDPBT Tech, and ABDPBT Commodity Fetishism versions at your leisure as well. If you have any posts that were great that I missed, please send me an email and I’ll check it out before next week.

  • First of all, today is Mr. Right-Click’s birthday, so if you see him, be sure to wish him a happy birthday. I believe he is also accepting gifts. Just FYI. I love you, honey!
  • I don’t know if you’re familiar with McSweeney’s or not, but if you are not, you should be. And now is a good time to start getting familiar, because they’ve just released an iPhone App which will deliver to you a random sampling of the hilarious stories and spoofs that appear there regularly. Good exploitation of the “we’re-waiting-for-our-doctor’s-appointment-and-have-nothing-to-do” market, if you ask me.
  • Check out the work by SpY, an Urban Artist from Madrid, at We Heart Stuff. Cool pictures. I think the skateboarding rink combined with a soccer field is my favorite, but I included the “gardening” installation in honor of Mr. Right-Click’s birthday: it combines two of his great loves into one.
