For the longest time now I’ve been meaning to add the incomparable Coudal Partners website to our blogroll, and tonight I’ve finally done so. The site came to my attention back in February, when Nathalie did a stint as a guest editor there, and it has increasingly become my failsafe destination when I simply must find strong distraction from whatever it is I’m supposed to be doing–for those desperate times when hockey box scores just won’t cut it. Coudal’s Fresh Signals (right-hand column) haven’t failed me yet. I read stuff on the web all day, but here you can always find something to look at. Among the freshest at the moment, I particularly recommend 10 worst album covers of all time and the sequel, More album covers. Last one, I swear, as well as The world’s flags given letter grades.
Ah hell, now that I’ve linked to a flag report card I may as well throw in the too-cute Kitty Cat Dance movie I’ve been sending to everyone I know lately. The title says it all, so you can steer clear if kitty cat dances aren’t your cup of tea, and don’t say I didn’t warn you. I’m afraid they’re mine. Thanks to Steve for this one.
