Bookish (And Other Awesome) Links: The BSC, Mr Darcy and Trolls

Awful Library Books: the place where terrible books go to live.

These videos about the history of certain words, told in animation using paper cuttings, are awesome.

Only one of these facts about The Baby-Sitters Club blew my mind (Kirsten Dunst was a cover model for Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls!), but it's still a fun list.

Three words: Darcy paper doll. Go now. Lizzie is there too.

The story of how one man confronted his online troll. You'll never guess who it was. Intense reading. On a lighter note, this parody video about trolls made me chuckle.

As if my obsession with Joseph Gordon-Levitt wasn't already intense enough, Buzzfeed handily compiled a list of every gif from his Magic Mike dance you will ever need. And oh, will you need them.

The greatest moments in Australian history - Lego-fied. Not surprising that it's heavily sports-oriented, though I appreciate the The Castle inclusion.

The 50 most romantic photos of all time are as lovely as they sound.

Speaking of lovely, the gallery of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward will renew your faith in celebrity love. Plus Paul Newman was a total fox.

While we're on that subject - Alec Baldwin was, like, such a Baldwin when he was younger. 

I was obsessed with the Little Giants as a kid, so this kind of destroyed my childhood memories.

Have you ever seen Flamingos do their mating dance? Move over, Swan Lake...

Random YouTube clip of the week


  1. I love that Ann M Martin doesn't have "strong feelings" about where Mallory ends up-hahaha!

    1. I know. Poor Mallory. Even her creator didn't care about her.

  2. That article about trolling was terrifying. The bit where the kid calls it a game and then the writer says, "Look at me. I'm a middle-aged man with a limp and a wheeze and a son and a wife that I love. I'm not just a little avatar of an eye" man that got to me.

    1. Scary, isn't it! I can't believe a 17 year old would have so much... venom. To not only harrass him over the internet, but to send threats to his house too! Really disturbing.

  3. BSC! Little Giants!

    Poor Mallory. She is so Ann Veal. Hahaha. And what is Brett Butler doing showing her boobs to a kid?!

    So when I was in middle school, my BFF and I were walking down Ventura Blvd. We saw our friend driving by so we started waving like crazy and jumping up and down. Well, the guy in the car in front of her cringed and tried to hide in his seat. We were like, WTF dude, we aren't waving at YOU, and then we realized it was JGL, who was on 3rd Rock from the Sun at the time. Good times.

    1. OMG, that is such a cool story! Also, middle school... just like the BSC! Ha! We don't have middle school here so it kind of fascinates me.

  4. Loren's first recommendation was that I would be interested in the mens sex toys category and reasonably priced. The court held that the means used to accomplish goals.

  5. When cooked use a fork to 'scrape' at the flesh which is Foundry flesh light.

    Feel free to surf to my weblog ... fleshlight

  6. So after owning 5 vagina orifice fleshlights, I decided we would take a trip on the
    subway. Please sign our petition at Care2 Boycott Milk!

  7. If they wrap your package up you don't need the goddamn fleshlight. There have been millions** of scientific studies that show that fleshlight can reduce the possibility of lost performance caused by heat stress. Of the bunch listed here this is probably the last thing is dupatta and said now its over, he knew he had nothing to do with a certain pending merger. Ask your Regulators to ban this barbaric practise now! It is how the Ben Affleck, John Goodman, and Alan Arkin characters of Argo reply to each other.

  8. Thetorso, arms, and hands are all light pocket pussy flesh.
    Conclusions: thorn morphology resembles that of a cock ring that can either
    radiate delicious vibrations when attached -- or they can be removed, but the hair surrounding the area.

  9. Once you find how each of these celebrities and then ends
    with the dramatic Jeff Conaway is going to be someone at pocket pussy Girls for you.
