Hope y’all enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving break! And while I was relaxing over the break, I enjoyed …
♥ … this story about a man who discovered this treasure of 10,000 undeveloped negatives, revealing a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the ’50s and ’60s.
♥ … reading about Oxford Dictionaries’ “word of the year,” selfie (plus the runners-up). Turns out the word selfie originated in 2002 in an Australian online forum. I ♥ etymology.
♥ … and speaking of selfie, here’s a fun round-up of iconic images reimagined as selfies.
♥ … getting addicted to these “list challenges,” including this list of the 75 most popular films from 1980-1995. I’ve seen 66 of the 75 — how many have you seen? (To be fair, I didn’t watch all of these films during that time period. For example, it took me an embarrassingly long time to finally get around to watching This is Spinal Tap. But I’m glad I can now say lines like “This one goes to 11!” and know what I’m actually talking about. ;) )
♥ … last, but not least, this Flavorwire gallery of favorite pop culture librarians. Any personal faves in this list? Please leave a comment and let me know!
