1. AnimalTalk.us | Albino Animals

Okay. I love animals. So I love a lot of animal pictures. But, that doesn’t mean I go posting them all over my blog all the time. HOWEVER. Now, I have found this: a glorious collection of various animals of the albino variety. Very cool website here.
Hashtag OMG. Check it out on AnimalTalk.us.

2. HighExistence.com |  30 Challenges for 30 Days

I’ve wanted to change a lot of my bad habits a lot of times. Earlier this year, I cut back my smoking habit to 5 a day- it lasted for almost two months. Sigh. Some of these sort of things die hard. But, this list has a lot of great ideas on it- along with a lot of things I’ve wanted to do over the years. The best idea would probably be to print this out, and put it somewhere you’ll see it everyday.

3. DrawAStickman.com

This is great. Your random stickman drawing comes to life in various sketchy, interactive games. Short, sweet, & creative. Great idea, & nicely executed. Such a cool website.

4. TED | The Art of Imperfection

Art is so subjective. In all my years of practicing art of all various forms, I’ve realized this: that one of the most crucial pieces to any work of art, no matter how small or great, is knowing both when to stop, but also, when to push yourself to go on. In the early stages, it’s hard to see the big picture. This video really hits the nail on the head. Recently I watched a documentary about Ancient Egypt. There was an interesting point someone made that was something of an “ah-ha!” moment for me. Basically it was this: if they found a statue that was deemed to be perfect, it would more than likely be counterfeit. They said so much because the Egyptians always held the tiny imperfections of the human existence in a high regard. It seemed to make a lot of sense.

 

5. ThoughtCatalog.com | Coffee vs Beer & Creativity

This is something I’ve wondered about for awhile. Then, as usual, I was sucked into ThoughtCatalogue.com via Facebook & this article really impressed me. Well written, & some pretty awesome facts about two of the most ingested beverages in America. No wonder I drink four shots of espresso a day. (Added to my 30 Day list: Stop Drinking Too Much Espresso.)

From the Article:

The best time to have a beer (or two) would be when you’re searching for an initial idea. Because alcohol helps decrease your working memory (making you feel relaxed and less worried about what’s going on around you), you’ll have more brain power dedicated to making deeper connections.

Sounds good to me!
