  1. Exquisite Tweets from @ftrain, @thelancearthur

    Lovely little improvised text adventure. (via @blech)

  2. 34 People You Probably Didn’t Know Were On Seinfeld

    I still don’t recognise a whole bunch of these. But the other night I noticed A.J. Langer, Rayanne off of ‘My So-Called Life’, looking much more grown-up than in MSCL, which was only a year or so earlier. The suit helped. (via Kottke)

  3. Underworld’s brief to ‘frighten people’ at the London 2012 opening ceremony | Music | The Guardian

    “The contrast between this summer’s two uber-spectaculars – the diamond jubilee concert and the Olympics opening ceremony – couldn’t be starker.” Yes, it felt like we’ve moved on from big events requiring 1980s musicians. (via Blech)

  4. London 2012: Danny Boyle’s story of Britain was a celebration of freedom | Shami Chakrabarti | Comment is free | The Guardian

    “Humility”, “democratic”, “optimistic”. Words Shami Chakrabsti uses in association with Danny Boyle, which also help explain the appeal of the Ceremony itself. (via Alex Balfour)

    I’m not sure if I’m getting better at Django or better at Googling StackOverflow answers. Either way, it’s ultimately been a good week.

    @iamdanw I always think the Vanmoof bikes look Muji-esque. But never sure if I like them, or if they’re “affordable”.

    Love Katarina @JohnsonThompson's Twitter bio: "Chronically indecisive so I've adopted two surnames & the heptathlon."
