Morning Link-O-Rama

Good morning, freaks.

Since my current job entails way too much downtime, I figured I’d try and start off most mornings by sharing links, videos, etc. with you that I come across as I go through my myriad of feeds.  IT’S A CORNUCOPIA OF FUN!

On to the show.

Boing Boing has a great video about marriage from Sesame Street.

Pigeon: Impossible is a CG short by a first-time animator! that took him five years to complete.  I wish I had that kind of dedication to anything besides alcohol. (via Laughing Squid)

Blockbuster is offering movie rentals on SD cards.  Seriously.  Hold on, wait for it,

In “in-your-stupid face-NBC” news, last night, The Jay Leno Show was beaten in the ratings by TWO CW shows.  Tastes so good. (via Ain’t It Cool)

The Wonder Twins are coming to Smallville on Friday.  This is actually happening.  Between that and Clark’s new outfit, who the hell knows what’s going on with that show anymore? Besides, there’s just no way that they’ll be able to top the Wonder Twins reference from Family Guy.  Yeah, you know which one I’m talking about.



I absolutely love this.  Vinyl stick-ons for your Mac. (yeah, I know, sorry PC peoples)  Various flavors available, including Mario himself.  From MacSlaps.

For anyone traveling over the holiday season, our Google overlords have granted us the gift of free wi-fi in 47 airports.  All you have to do is give them your firstborn child and a pint of blood.  Ok, that part isn’t true.  OR IS IT? No, it’s not. Great deal, though. Free holiday w-fi from Google

While you’re using that free wi-fi, though, don’t forget to make sure you’re not sharing everything on your computer with the entire airport.  Do you really want everyone at the gate to know you have folders marked “Team Jacob” and “Team Edward” on your computer?  Because I sure don’t.  I know how dreamy Robert Pattinson is, but keep it to yourself, ok? Follow Lifehacker’s advice and lock down your information. (via Lifehacker)

In extra-awesome font news (what a grabber of an opener) Typekit has gone live to everyone.  Basically, Typekit is a cloud-based font service, allowing users to have their chosen fonts delivered to pages via a server, as opposed to embedding them, or using Flash. Closer and closer to using whatever fonts we want.

Are you using Foursquare yet?  No?  They’ve got iPhone and Android apps available, with Blackberry and Palm webOS coming soon.  And it’s fun.  TRY IT

That should do it for this morning.  Be seeing you!
