WEEKEND LINKS – February 26th, 2010

A young woman participates in the Red Cross Children’s Carnival competition at the Queen’s Park Savannah in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago on February 6, 2010.

HAPPY FRIDAY, EVERYONE!! I hope everyone had a wonderful week as well as a spectacular weekend ahead of them! Here are some links to read over this weekend (especially if you’re snowed in up in the Northeast!)

http://www.codeorgan.com/ – This is a really cool site that allows you to make a song from your favorite websites. (It makes sense when you try it, I promise)

http://mycardboardlife.com – Cutest. Comic. Ever. (at least, the cutest comic in my recent memory.) Worth a read, definitely.

◊CARNIVAL!! The source of the amazing image in the header as well as the others in this post can be found here. I have always wanted to go, and these fantastic images only serve to make me more excited to see it in person some day! Here are other sources for Carnival images at Pixcetera.com and ONTD_Political.

A dancer performs during the parade of Leandro de Itaquera samba school at the Sambadrome in Sao Paulo, Brazil on Saturday, Feb. 13, 2010.

The PopAfricana Blog – A gorgeous new blog that I’ve seen making its way around the internet. It’s tied to a magazine that I cannot wait to get my hands on. I am always happy to see the culture of Africa being presented to the masses in an innovative new way.

Boxing Kitten – Clothes that are FAB-U-LOUS. I love the African print incorporated into the clothing. When I go to Tanzania this summer, I want to get clothing with that kind of print. (SO excited, by the way)

◊Andrea at Fly posted an awesome Creative Tip of the Week that I feel is worth a read to anyone in the creative profession.

Luxirare: Cake – If you have never seen the photography from Luxirare, you are missing out. No, seriously. Go. Now.

A costumed dancer of Viradouro samba school performs during carnival celebrations at the Sambadrome in Rio de Janeiro, Feb.15, 2010.

Rainbow in your Hands – A rainbow in your hands! In the form of a book! I want one of these!!

Parkour Motion Reel Creation – A sweet stop motion video depicting a free runner that is a must-see.

◊From an amazing new blog, 4ChangeNow, that asks Are we limiting Dr. King’s legacy?

Why are children only made aware of his “I have a dream speech?”  No one knows about his books, his life after the March on Washington, or the fact that he fought alot about housing issues in Chicago?  His legacy is beyond that…

Alicia San Juan McNulty, wearing a creation called “In Wonderland”, reacts after being elected Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in the Spanish Canary Island of Tenerife, late February 10, 2010.
