|Mother Goose Playroom - Vanderbilt Hotel|
Daytonian in Manhattan, a wonderful blog about historical buildings in New York, has two interesting stories this week - the first is a fun history of the Vanderbilt Hotel and the second is a tale of the 1950s destruction of the Thomas Paine home. So many amazing buildings were lost for the sake of "progress" it just makes me sick.
With Skyfall coming out, I read a great piece about the difference between the film and literary James Bond. I had no idea there was so much difference. I have not read a James Bond book, but it is definitely on my list of to-dos. Seeing Skyfall is a to-do as well. It's one of the few films that look worth seeing this year.
For those of us who have wondered why we didn't think of that, I read interesting article about accidental inventions. Hopefully I'll stumble across something myself one of these days.
For those of you celebrating Movember (like my hubby) here is a great mustache choosing guide. I love the idea of Movember. You go guys!
|Telemedicine Prediction of 1925|
Smithsonian talks about Telemedicine predictions of 1925. I really hope this is not the way of the future, but unfortunately I believe it is. It's difficult enough to get a doctor to understand you in person.
I've always liked the image of John Wayne. I'm not a huge fan of westerns so I wouldn't put any of his films on my best-of list, but he is definitely a star. Movie Morlocks had a great story about the little known facts of John Wayne which is definitely worth the read. I found it fascinating.
|Albert Einstein Chilling|
Cracked has some great photographs of famous people being totally out-of-character. Very funny!
