11. Linked Up: Actors, Wordplay, Boo the Puppy


14 actors acting. [New York Times]

Triumph of the week: I finally learned how to fold a fitted sheet! [Nag on the Lake]

If this doesn’t make you smile, I give up. [Best Roof Talk Ever]

Amazing video created for the German shortfilm competition “Kurzundschön” (Short & Nice). [Vimeo]

Did you know Jesse Eisenberg has a wordplay website? [One Up Me]

No luck trending on Twitter? Blame Justin Bieber. [WSJ Speakeasy]

The other day, I glanced at my Pandora, and it hit me that the singer Jason Derulo was actually Jay Sean Derulo. (If you don’t know who I’m talking about, good for you.) I was amazed – how had I not realized this before?! Because it’s not true. They’re actually two different people, but at least in looking it up, I stumbled upon this gem of a mash-up. [YouTube]

In the future, no one will burn books. [clu]

Remember that movie Julie & Julia? Yeah. Well. This takes it to the next level. [Urlesque]

17. Open Pandora's Box!

I was writing a road trip scene today and felt like I needed a little music while I worked. But since I prefer to work in austere conditions with no distractions to the eyes or ears, I don’t even have a way to play music in my office other than my laptop. So I thought I’d check out Pandora.com, which my husband has been raving about since it debuted on the internet. Guess what? I have a new obsession! Pandora knows me better than I know myself! Pandora understands me at the core! Brace yourself for even more exclamation points!

For those of you who haven’t used Pandora, you type in a couple of your favorite random artists and it figures out what you like. How it works is all very mysterious to me, but damn if I didn’t type in Pink Floyd and Jeff Buckley and have Pandora tell me I’d like Ben Harper. I love Ben Harper! And I hadn’t yet said a word about it, Pandora just knew. Then I added Ray LaMontagne and Alison Krauss and Pandora told me I’d like Matt Costa. I’d never heard of him, but now he’s my new favorite!

This kind of unbridled joy at Pandora’s mind reading skills has been going on all day.

On/Off by Snow Patrol just came on! I’d written this song on my hand a few weeks ago, meaning to buy it, but never got around to it. Did Pandora see that? It’s crazy over here, my friends! Run on over to Pandora.com and feast your ears. She knows what you like!

Wait…are you kidding me? Now it’s Jason Mraz? Am I that transparent? Are my tastes that obvious? Or is Pandora just the mystifying oracle of music that I think it is?

At what point to you wonder if they’ve planted a chip in your head?
