30 Classic Music Albums Recreated Wtith Lego (As sited by Andy Baio on “reinterpretations of copyrighted works.” Furthering discussion of his settlement to Jay Maisel over “fair use” of Miles Davis’ Kind of Cool album cover photo.)

24/6: Jay Mohr’s recreation of HBO’s 24/7 specials of the Penguins/Capitals.  (#3 of of *exactly* three good things to come out of the (HORRIBLE) NHL Awards. #1 Dan Bylsma winning Jack Adams Award (for coach of the year) and #2 Tim Thomas winning the Vezina Trophy (for goalie of the year)).

A periodic table of storytelling. (What would I do without John Ptak enlightening me every day with his finds!!! Follow him on twitter @ptak)

An interesting look at the lengths a parent will go to indulge their child, and the potential fallout. (Happens to be regarding former U.S. president Harry Truman’s daughter, Margaret, but the theme is universal and timeless. A great early example of a potential STFU Parents subject.)

Some great Pennsylvania-related snippets. (Funny, sad, artistic, and otherwise)

Every year, I think I’d like to learn how to knit. Since it’s June, I should probably start NOW in order to get one yarn Indian corn done by October…

Very cool post on scientific experiments continuing for decades. (Insert joke about your parent’s marriage…here.) h/t

You should know what the Peter Principle is. (’Every new member in a hierarchical organization climbs the hierarchy
until he/she reaches his/her level of maximum incompetence’.)

Will Valenki boots be the next Uggs? (I’m not usually on the cutting edge of fashion, but I’m kind of digging these.)

N’atchronisms (a chronological misplacing of persons, events, objects, or customs in regard to each other. The item is often an object, but may be a verbal expression, a technology, a philosophical idea, a musical style, a material, a custom, or anything else so closely associated with a particular period in time that it would be incorrect to place it outside of…Pittsburgh.)

Anachronistic internet ads. (fun look at what retro Twitter, Skype, YouTube, and Facebook ads would have looked like.)

1930’s flooring brochures. “The Very Describable Macro Color of 1930’s Floors–Well…Color, Symbolism and Swastikas in Floor”

Saved by the Bell silliness. (I dare you not to laugh at some of these.)

Gorgeous Russian winter photos. (check out the abandoned dashas, then swoon.) h/t
