Swiped from Brendan (who covers all things political in our extended family, thus freeing me to post silly stuff): possibly the best Obama image ever.

Also, you can build your own Obama figure out of paper, and then photograph it hanging out with you! I love that there are people in India and Australia, among other places, sending in the images. This is brought to you by the creator of Custom Paper Toys, which I've linked to before.

The Guardian asks artists what to do in times of economic uncertainty. The best advice comes from artist David Shrigley, who says, "The Muppet Show represents the pinnacle of human artistic achievement and should be viewed by all humanity during dark times to remind us of what is possible. "

Also from the Guardian: The 1000 works of art you should see before you die. This seems like a tall order to me, but perhaps it's not as staggering as it sounds. (I haven't counted up the art works I've seen so far, but I may when I get time!)

What does your favorite font you use say about you? Apparently, I secretly want to eat brains. (In the comments, it is also said that the font means I want to be in a mid-1990s coffeehouse, which is creepily accurate.)

And lastly, Postcard.fm is an updated version of the electronic greeting card, and I mean that in the best way possible. I haven't tried it yet, but be warned, I may soon!
