Friday Follies undead edition

Star used to regularly write "Friday Follies" posts and seldom a Friday goes by when I don't think about them and how wise she was to post every Monday and Friday (coincidentally the days when my page views here are also highest.) So, here for you are some fun, silly, and interesting things out there on the web:

  • Spelling with Zombies. Much better than those glitter words applications and you get results like this:

    Zombie Letters from e-zombie.com

  • Speaking of (un)dead... how about bookshelves which convert into a coffin after you're gone?

  • Or maybe you just feel a little undead and could use some caffeine. I'm looking forward to trying out this method of cold-brewing coffee concentrate for summer iced coffees. However, I really want to point you toward one of the most beautiful espresso maker designs ever: the Otto. I love designs that are so bold they look like nothing that has come before; the Otto definitely fits that bill.

  • And finally, some video fun....classic Ray Harryhausen stop-motion skeletons from 1963:

You have certainly done her proud. Star would have loved each and every one of these, as you well know. Oddly enough I had an email back and forth with another Corner Friend this morning, about how zombies are all the rage right now.
