Here’s some stuff I enjoyed this week

Here’s a fresh batch of some quality interweb finds I’ve come across over the last 7 days (it’s been a slow week):

  • Ever wanted to lick Professor Dumbledore? Now’s your chance, with the latest set of stamps from the Royal Mail celebrating famous wizards and witches. (Guardian)
  • It’s nice when journalists agree with everything I say; like Michael J. West, who agrees with me that artists like Robert Glasper represent jazz’s best hopes for the future. (Washington CityPaper)
  • If there is one good thing to come from the latest YouTube viral abomination — and there is just one thing so far — it’s this Bob Dylan-esque cover of tone-deaf tween singer Rebecca Black’s insipid good-time anthem, “Friday.” (StumbleUpon via YouTube)
  • I helped retrieve a lost World War II-era tank from a bog this weekend. What did you do? (Militaarne Hiiumaa)
  • Everybody loves useless facts. Here are a bunch about America that I assume are true even though I didn’t read them on Wikipedia. (Ray Bromley)
  • See, Photoshop can be really cool. Like these current photos of famous World War II locations combined with pictures at the same spot from the war. (9GAG)
