It's been a while since I've done any sort of compendium, mostly because compendium postings aren't really my strong suit. That said, when you're improvising all week, what they hey, right?
1. Oppa Gangnam Style
Have you seen this video from Korean artist PSY? (pronounced sai) I know that a bazillion people have seen it already, and it's fast becoming a viral sensation, but there is an unbridled joy that creeps into your soul after seeing it. My understanding is that he's making a stinging commentary here on the extremely privileged in Korean society, but he's sure doing it in a fun way. This still above? My favorite moment in the video.
2. Speaking of music…
My good friend, Christopher (Dan's best friend who works for the U.S. Embassy in Slovenia) has recently headed up an R.E.M. tribute project featuring an all-star cast of Slovenian artists. The project is dedicated to raising awareness about environmental issues and will highlight the work of many Slovenian environmental groups. I think it must be a cool part of any job to put together an R.E.M. tribute. They are one of my all-time favorite groups and the Slovenian super group does this song justice. Way to orchestrate, CMW!
3. Speaking of type…
I know, I wasn't actually speaking of type but my online workshop 10 Tips for Better Type kicks off bright and early tomorrow morning. If you're interested in learning more about how type can enhance your scrapbook pages, consider joining me for the next two weeks. In Week 1, you get the presentation and videos to watch and in Week 2, we make a page together and I host a video chat. There's also a layout contest and free fonts are part of the class content. I'd love to see you there!
Here ends the compendium. Thank you.
