Things I Love #40

Happy Father's day to my most awesome dad!!  And also to all the other fathers I know, hope you've all been spoilt rotten.   The first item on this weeks list is quite fitting...

Lego released a happy Star Wars Fathers day video and it just warms my heart:

On the subject of LEGO, check out these amazing pictures of Nathan Sawaya's Art of the Brick show.  Who ever said LEGO was for kids!

 I love Stan Lee but I am not so sure how much I'd like to smell like him.  What do you think about Stan Lee's signature fragrance?

Least Helpful rounds up all the most useless reviews on Amazon and presents them for our enjoyment. I got a few good laughs out of this one.

Textile artist Claire Moynihan creates the most amazing 3D embroidered insects and bugs.  My favourite is the snail.

Ever wanted to make bread rolls that look like xenomorph eggs?  Well now you can.  

Have I mentioned how much I am loving the Walking Dead?  Well I am and this Walking Dead debit card would be so super awesome:

Jason sent me this Buzzfeed article with 12 scientific way that reading can improve your life.  Needless to say I am feeling pretty awesome about the amount of reading I am doing these days.

This Social Media Job Title Generator makes me laugh.  My favourite one so far has been Virality Cornholio.

I love this Iron Fist Spineless Blouse so very much.  That said, the word blouse really bugs me, it sounds terribly old fashioned...

This Instant Shakespeare Insult Kit is my new favourite thing!  If you cross me, prepare to be called an artless, beef-witted dewberry or a fobbing, fly-bitten fustilarian get the picture.

Frank Iero from My Chemical Romance and Leathermouth has released a very rough solo track:

In other My Chem related news, The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys was released this week.  MTV Geek had an exclusive interview with Gerard Way to celebrate.

I don't really uses Twitter much but I enjoyed this article about 7 SA Twitter terms that need to go global.

This poster series featuring inspirational quotes from the DC universe is so cool.  I want to cover my walls with them!

Another poster series I'd love to have?  The Slothzilla series which "depict the tedious and nap-filled chaos created by the Slothzilla."  Need I say more?

This photo of a wedding party being chased by AT-ATs makes me smile.  It also makes me sad that we didn't think of that...oh well...

Some interesting thoughts on Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby.  I'm so sad that I didn't get around to seeing it before it went of circuit but, considering I was sceptical about the 3D maybe that's not such a bad thing?

This chair belongs in my life.  That is all.

Finally, Rolo's reaction to the smell of toast never fails to make me smile:

And that's all for this week.  Seen anything you love?  Let me know in the comments:)  

PS.  I am going to be taking a little break for the next week and a half.  My exam is on the 24th and I really need the extra revision time so I will be back to blogging next week Wednesday or thereabouts.  


  1. Love the Lego Father's Day video and just about peed myself reading some of those Least Helpful reviews! Thank you :)
