Eclectic Friday Fun

I’m not even going to attempt tenuous links between today’s offerings – they’re all utterly unrelated, but their diversity should provide you with some entertainment, even if your taste in fun doesn’t precisely match mine…

First up is a bit of culture. Earlier this week, the Hairpin linked to a gallery of Life magazine’s most boring covers, which proved to be much more entertaining than you might imagine it to be. (Surprisingly, many of them were Christmas editions.) Then it emerged that there was also an online gallery of famous magazines’ first covers – very intriguing. The two galleries will probably divert you for at least 5 minutes, so that’s a decent Friday morning distraction.

That’s Vogue and National Geographic – both have come a long way since they began.
Picking up the ever amusing subject of cats on the internet, I also offer you Louis Vs Rick, the story of what happens when a man teaches his cat to IM – delightful. Here’s a sample of their conversation to whet your appetite:
LouisTheCat: THIS IS AMAZING
LouisTheCat: WHY DIDNT YOU TELL ME THIS BEFORE
RickDickens77: Well, it’s not really.. I mean, you can use it for certain things, but usually people don’t use it because it looks like yelling.
LouisTheCat: I KNOW ITS PERFECT
LouisTheCat: CAPS LOCK IS HOW I FEEL INSIDE RICK
LouisTheCat: ALL THE TIME
RickDickens77: Well keep it to yourself, I’m trying to get things done so I can bring you dinner.
LouisTheCat: ITS GONNA BE A WHOLE NEW ME RICK

Thirdly, it wouldn’t be Friday without the opportunity for some frivolous dancing, so I offer you an interesting take on the ‘choreographed first wedding dance’ thing, this time with the Father of the Bride burning up the dance floor…

It also wouldn’t be a proper Friday of Fun without some singing – or, given the end of last week’s fun, some Lady Gaga. How about a group of older people singing Bad Romance in a Chinese dialect, accompanied by Beijing’s Crystal Orchestra? It’s both sublime and ridiculous!

I’m beginning to wonder if I should make Gaga a regular Friday feature – there appears to be enough random interpretations of her work on the internet to keep this blog full for quite some time to come…

Have a delectable Friday!
