Bask in the glow of our Internetly finds, because this week we've got a little bit of everything: podcasts, videos, paintings, tumblr love, and more.
Jaime: Artist Andy Denzler
I love these paintings by Zurich–based artist Andy Denzler—they make me think of views through rain-streaked train windows. I'm curious about his technique—does he paint photo-realistically and then streak things up with a palette knife? Would love to see one of these pieces in person.
Although it's been around since 2008, and I really should have heard about it by now, the "Stuff You Should Know" podcast is brand-spanking-new to me. I have spent this week getting educated about things such as fluoride in drinking water, how deja vu works, and what the heck a hiccup is. Josh and Chuck, the hosts, are making me smarter by the day. At this rate, in a few weeks, I'll understand quantum physics.
Miyoko: Young Me/NowMe
This week, thanks to Swiss-Miss, I paged through post after post of Young Me/Now Me. The site features pairs of photos submitted by readers: one from when the reader was young and a second from today recreated to look like the former. The photos are sweet, silly, humorous, awkward, and just a whole lot of fun to look at. Enjoy.
Aaron: Objects in Space
Amanda: How Ink Is Made
I really enjoyed this lovely little video featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the wonderful world of ink making by Peter Welfare, a—what else?—master ink maker. Beautifully shot and very informative peek at the process, though I found the accompanying music to be an odd choice.
