Friday I’m In Love: Blank and Bow, House of Cards Ribs, The Coruscant Tapestry


Friday I'm In Love

(Almost) every Friday, I share a handful of my favorite things from around the web and around the world.  Enjoy!

1. Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story

Blank and Bow: A Vinylmation Love Story

This stop-motion short film (a free download from Google play) tells the story of Blank, an unpainted Vinylmation on an epic quest for love and meaning. Definitely worth a watch.

2. Two married people in their mid-thirties give the “Seventeen Ultimate Guide to Guys” a try

What happens when a married couple takes a crack at following the advice of a dating manual for teenagers? Hilarity. Hilarity is what happens.

3. The Coruscant Tapestry

Curtis Stone's TV Show Recipes

I normally cap my list at five faves, but I couldn’t let the release of the second season of House of Cards go unmentioned. And if you have watched the show and craved the finger-licking goodness of the ribs Frank Underwood eats from time to time, look no further than this recipe from Curtis Black (scroll down, past a few other TV-inspired treats).
