library porn!

The Old Library, Handelingenkamer Tweede Kamer Der Staten-Generaal Den Hague, Netherlands
The official reporters of the Parliamentary Reporting Office record the proceedings and debates in parliament verbatim. Volumes of these verbatim reports (Handelingen) are stored in this library. When it was built at the end of the 19th century, there was no electricity—combustible substances, such as candles and gas lamps, had to be kept away from the more than 100,000 volumes. The roof was constructed as a leaded glass dome to allow as much light in as possible. (via)

the king's speech : real vs. fake

joel and i saw the king's speech yesterday. i'll let him give you the full review, but i'll tell you it was 11 biscuits!

it's not really a spoiler to tell you that the movie is about king george VI's stuttering problem. this is the real video of the speech depicted in the beginning of the film (seen in trailer below). the stammering really gets going around the 2:30 mark.


more rats riding subways.

this is just mildly amusing (not like last time), but i think it's important to keep track.

this is the best movie i've ever seen.

i've been bitten by the winchester goose!

banksy speaks

"I don’t agree with the concept of award ceremonies, but I’m prepared to make an exception for the ones I’m nominated for. The last time there was a naked man covered in gold paint in my house, it was me."

banksy's film "exit through the gift shop" is nominated for the academy award for best documentary. who is going to accept if he wins? i hope it's mr. brainwash.

glee vs kings of leon

This story has been brewing for a while, I first posted about kings of leon and glee last year. things have gotten substantially more heated, and now it's time to address the situation again. via.

Yesterday, Glee creator Ryan Murphy said, "Fuck you, Kings of Leon" in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, slagging the band for not giving the show permission to use their songs. While singer Caleb Followill was quoted trying to ratchet down the tension with Murphy ("This was never meant as a slap in the face to Glee or to music education or to fans of the show"), drummer Nathan Followill is having none of this measured-response business. Nathan just tweeted, "Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go. See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra. Zip your lip and focus on educating 7yr olds how to say fuck."

Murphy said: "Just read Nathan Followill's Tweet…in which he implied I should ‘get a manicure and buy a bra.’ Wow. That's a homophobe badly in need of some education. I'm all for manicures, don't wear a bra. Would guess most gay dudes don't. But it's telling that Nathan can reduce a group of people to a mean-spirited cliché, in a time where young gay men are killing themselves all over the country because of hatred like this.
That said, I would love to sit down with Nathan or any member of Kings and Leon, and tell them how on Glee we actually love their music, and support their artistry…but cannot condone or even laugh at their clear disdain of gay people."

Followill then tweeted in response, "I'm sorry 4 anyone that misconstrued my comments as homophobic or misogynistic. I'm so not that kind of person. I really do apologize."

Boys, boys, boys... you are really embarrassing yourselves. You guys need to work this one out without getting Perez Hilton involved.

who to root for? Packers v Steelers

Go Packers! They have the most Vols on their team. Decision made.

Former Tennessee offensive linemen Chad Clifton (1995-1999) and Scott Wells (1999-2003) are starters on the offensive line for Green Bay. Defensive lineman Justin Harrell (2002-2005) is on the Packers’ injured reserve roster. The Packers are heading to the Super Bowl for the fifth time in team history, and these former Vols will help the team try to win its first Super Bowl championship since 1997. The Pittsburgh Steelers are represented by two former offensive line standouts Ramon Foster (2004-2008) and Chris Scott (2005-2008). Foster is a starter on the Steelers’ offensive line. The Steelers are attempting to win the franchise’s third Super Bowl championship in the last six seasons.

mmmmmm pigeon forge.

did you know pigeon forge is the home to the world's dirtiest hotel, as voted by tripadvisor?
"If you are looking for a hotel with: pubic hair stuck to the bathroom floor in some unidentifiable, gelatinous liquid; chewing tobacco spit oozing down the halls and corridors; spiders actively making webs in every corner of your room; carpeting so greasy and dirty you wouldn't want to sit your luggage down - let alone walk around barefoot; dingy bedsheets and towels as rough and thin as sandpaper; and a room so putrid and smelly it causes a gag-reflex when you walk in... by all means, stay at The Grand Resort."

china's planning a megacity.

and it scares the pants off of me.
City planners in south China have laid out an ambitious plan to merge together the nine cities that lie around the Pearl River Delta.
The "Turn The Pearl River Delta Into One" scheme will create a 16,000 sq mile urban area that is 26 times larger geographically than Greater London, or twice the size of Wales.
The new mega-city will cover a large part of China's manufacturing heartland, stretching from Guangzhou to Shenzhen and including Foshan, Dongguan, Zhongshan, Zhuhai, Jiangmen, Huizhou and Zhaoqing. Together, they account for nearly a tenth of the Chinese economy.
Over the next six years, around 150 major infrastructure projects will mesh the transport, energy, water and telecommunications networks of the nine cities together, at a cost of some 2 trillion yuan (£190 billion). An express rail line will also connect the hub with nearby Hong Kong. (via)
they say it's population will be around 42 million.

swiperboy is in trouble with the ncaa

modern family : why it's great.

the new york times takes a stab at explaining the show's success:
In a rare concurrence, the darling of the critics is one of the highest rated comedies on television, and is the 20th rated show over all this season. This unusual success for a family comedy raises questions: What aspects of contemporary life has it tapped into? What does “Modern Family” say about modern families? (via)

really great idea.

thx melissa!

what a delicious way to go.

A 22-year-old tortilla factory worker in Brooklyn was fatally injured in a freakish accident early Monday when he fell into a dough-mixing machine, the police said. The man, whose name was not immediately released, was working at Tortilleria Chinantla at 975 Grand Street in East Williamsburg around 2:30 a.m. when he fell into the waist-high tub of the mixer and was pinned by the metal blade, which is not sharp but is powered by a strong motor, the police said. The half-dozen other workers were unable to save him. No criminality is suspected. (via)
