Link love Fridays

Link love Fridays: missed connections, fun on Twitter and Snow Patrol


First of all, when you donate for Haiti, make sure the website is not a scam. There are small-hearted people out there trying to profit from the pain of others.


Now moving on to beautiful links, I’m sure you know this song, but I’ve re-discovered my love for Snow Patrol, and the words of this one are just poetry.

Although I’m not a fan of Cheryl Cole, and contrary to the general opinion, I actually like the version with Cheryl better than the one with Martha.



Did you know the wonderful Sophie Blackall makes illustrations after Craigslist’s Missed Connections? They’re so sweet! And she’s got an Etsy shop.






Shit my Dad says is about a very hilarious Dad whose daily jokes (more or less) are twittered by his son.

Fine, let’s take a vote. Who wants fish for dinner?…Yeah, democracy ain’t so fun when it fucks you, huh?

I just want silence. Jesus, it doesn’t mean I don’t like you. It just means right now, I like silence more


Have a great weekend, peeps!

  • Those are superb pictures. I love them.

  • I LOVE those missed connection drawings–I’d seen them someplace awhile back but am SO glad you wrote about them because I really think I need to get some! Hope you’re having a great weekend Alex!

  • Hmm I dunno about your Cheryl Cole theory. Martha has a Kate Bush-esque wistfulness whilst Cheryl will be pop through and through. Which is fine, but I prefer different!

  • Those drawings are so adorable! I love them!!
    Also I follow Shit my Dad Says on Twitter and it always makes me laugh.
