...in which I talk about cool stuff
These photos by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre, I found them in an article entitled "Detroit in Ruins" by Sean O'Hagen. They're so good I want to vomit. In a complimentary way, of course.

You've probably seen this before, but Wants For Sale is the coolest idea I've ever seen for fund raising. Basically, in 2007 in order to raise money for things they wanted, artists Christine and Justin started painting ... the stuff they wanted and selling the paintings for the price of the stuff. Big or small, they seemed to do alright!
For example, they sold "Drinks On Us" and bought all their friends a round of booze,
and they sold "A New Bikini"...to buy a new bikini.
They became pretty internet popular, and decided to use their powers for good, and created
Needs for Sale, the Wants for Sale sister site, where the money from the paintings goes to people in need. Great idea! You should go check it out; the site is pretty and the paintings are really neat.

Crumpled City Maps
Speaking as someone who can not fold a damn map if her life depended on it, these things are fantastic.
It's not something I'm good at or even really practice because I hate routine and schedules almost as much as I love them, but wow, it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside to read about plans, lists and schedules. Haha.
