Link’n’Blogs – 12.8.17: Almost Infamous?


Related Content from And There Came A Day


I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as thought provoking as I have.

Yesterday was the anniversary of FDR’s famous address to congress which launched the United States into World War II. One wonders where eloquence, even on such a terrible subject, has gone in our political discourse. I read again this past week a fascinating NPR piece on what that speech almost was what it wasn’t.

As students and teachers all over the country rocket toward Christmas Break, many will be completing final exams prior to the weeks off for the holiday. This made me consider the pressure of grades and grading both on students and teachers and called to mind a wonderful post by The Junior Senator on his blog Socratic Review (have you not subscribed yet!?!). Click the picture below to get his take on this challenge. This is a short, thought provoking and excellent piece.

Justice League opens today and I, for one, am very excited for the movie. I have enjoyed the DC movies which, I know, places me squarely in the minority, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I behold much to like in these movies. If you want to get ready for the movie, click the photo below to read up on the League and the film with an article from comicbook.com.

Do you love movie posters? I do! The only thing about movies I love more than movie posters is opening credits … I think much can be judged about a movie by its opening credits, but that is a post for another time.

This post is about… POSTERS! Empire put together a respectable list of the 50 best movie posters of all time and you might wish to take a look. Not only do they show each poster, they give a little story about what went into the composition of each and who was behind it. VERY cool stuff. Click the photo below…

I have re-blogged content from The Socratic Review, my friend The Junior Senator’s blog a number of times. Today is one of those. Writing about stress, The Junior Senator passionately asks questions that we, educators or not, ought to answer for the sake of our children… and ourselves.  Well done, my friend.

Sometimes you just have to have fun and some of the most fun I had last year was during my two, complete viewings of the Netflix sensation Stranger Things.

If you plan on watching Season 2 and you know nothing about the show (or have forgotten much of Season 1), allow me to help you – or allow Vogue to help you!

Click the photo for the details (spoilers FOR SURE) on Stranger Things Season 1.
