Here is this week’s list of blog posts and other tidbits from my favourite corners of the web.

Top 10 Topics My Sons Are Bickering About via GinaValley. I once had an argument with one of my brothers about the pronunciation of the word salmon. (I’ll leave it up to the sibling in question to reveal his identity if he chooses to do so).

The Case for Being a Terrible Person via UncredibleHallq. I’m not familiar with the groups discussed in this post, but I really like the author’s approach to personal development.

Blood Pepper and Brave Meat. This is one of the most interesting short stories I’ve read recently.

It Belongs in a Museum: Artist Adds Sci-Fi Characters to Thrift Store Paintings. These paintings were incredibly well done. Normally I’m not at all fan of rustic, rural scenery in art, but I’d buy a few of these remixes in a heartbeat if I had the funds for it. They really ignite my imagination!

The Case Against Positive Thinking via JeffreyGuterman. Good stuff.

From On Kindness:

When I think of my mother’s life up to this point, what I find most revealing is how much of the abuse hurled at her throughout the years came about solely because she showed care and love to the wrong kinds of people.

Texts from Jane Eyre: And Other Conversations with Your Favorite Literary Characters was a hoot.

Whether you’re a fan of King Lear, Nancy Drew, or Harry Potter, imagine what it would be like to text them. The concept is so simple I’m not entirely sure what else I should say about it. This was a very fun read, though, and I’d highly recommend it to all of my readers.
