Cooking for Thanksgiving? Bloghungry may have some answers for you, depending on what’s on the menu.
If you’re ready to take the plunge into the next holiday, but at this point only from the safety of the Internet, you can check out houseblinger, a site that catalogues houses in the UK that have been dressed up in lights. Mom and dad always used to drive us around the neighborhood to looks at the lights this time of year. Here’s a way to do the same thing but save gas.
I’ve heard from the most die-hard Rent fan I know and he gives a thumbs up to the new Chris Columbus adaptation of the musical that opens today. The NYT seems to agree: “In telling their entwined stories, Mr. Columbus has managed a feat similar to the one he pulled off with the first two ‘Harry Potter’ movies; he has taken a source that is fiercely and jealously loved by its core fans and refrained from messing it up. It is not just that he shows dexterity and imagination in transferring the spectacle onto the actual streets of the East Village in Manhattan. The real key to his success is his utter lack of condescension.” This is definitely the movie to see this weekend.
If you’ve got some time on your hands and want a creative project over the long weekend, here’s something unique you can make for someone’s gift this season. It’s a flipbook printed on business cards, created from .avi movies. And unfortunately, it’s for Windows only. Grrr.
