A group of vandals who call themselves the “Salty Knits” have been decorating random trees are other objects in Cape May, New Jersey with hand-knitted yarn sleeves.  Apparently this has offended some members of the community who have been tearing down their work.  I don’t know about you, but if I woke up tomorrow and found a yarn sleeve on my tree I’d have the biggest smile on my face all day.  And don’t you worry about those “Salty Knits” they won’t let dissenters slow them down, they’ll just keep on knitting and purling and knitting and purling…

“Honey, may I borrow the flying dirigible tonight?”

This set of Victorian postcards depicted “Life in the Year 2000”. If only their visions were true. The commute to work would be so much more civilized in a personal flying machine.

And in our leisure time we would go water bicycling.

More wonderful postcards here.

I wanna see Hot Tub Time Machine because:

1) John Cusack

2) They go back to the 80’s

3) Hot tub time machine.  Duh.

This is a little old and I totally stole it from the lovely and talented Beauty Geek’s website.  But if you haven’t seen it you’ll thank me because it’s freaking funny.  I love the callback to the “I’m f*cking Matt Damon/Ben Affleck” videos.

MuchMusic has been replaying Season One of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.  Now, Season One isn’t the best season of Buffy, it starts to get super-awesome around Season Three, but it sure is fun to revisit Buffy and Angel’s first kiss knowing all the angst-y stories coming in their future.  Remember when Buffy loses her virginity to Angel and he goes all evil Angelus on her?  How about when she hooks up with Spike? The girl sure likes her vamps.  It still holds up as one of the best shows ever, if not The. Best. Show. Ever.   Imagine being a young teen just discovering Buffy for the first time on Much?  I am so jealous.
