    Guy Debord’s film in full on Google Video, with English subtitles.

  5. Myliblog: Uncle Bobby’s Wedding

    Imagine if every complaint about anything received a reply this thoughtful. (via Kottke)

    Sounds like fun! In theory. In reality I never used the chemistry set I had as a kid much, so maybe not.

  7. Stefanie Posavec “On the Map” (NOTCOT)

    Amazing infographic-like diagrams all based on Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’. Obsessively beautiful. (via Orlando’s Ffffound)

    The idea of self-help books makes me cringe, but this does sound intriguing… (via Oliver Burkeman in the Guardian)

    “Most of us spend our lives steering ourselves toward the best of all possible futures, only to find that tomorrow rarely turns out as we had presumed.” “Happiness is not really what or where we thought it was.” (via Haddock)
