Friday Favorites 9.6.13

Happy Friday! I spent the last few days training for my new job, so I didn't get around to a couple of posts I had planned. Boo, hiss. I'm hoping to get another ukulele video up sometime this weekend (you can see the first one here, in case you missed it). However, I'm picking up my first lesson kit this afternoon and will probably spend the weekend trying to figure out what the hell I'm doing before teaching my first class on Tuesday. I'm a little overwhelmed by how much information I had to take in the past few days, but I'm definitely looking forward to throwing on my lab coat and teaching a group of littles about the wonders of science next week! 


Nonfiction Tees has the absolute greatest collection of science and history-related tee shirts ever. These would be perfect for throwing on with my lab coat every day, and I definitely want to invest in a few to go with the different classes I teach. Obviously, the arachnid shirt is my favorite, though I wish they had it available in women's sizes. 


I found this photo  on Tumblr (with no source included, of course) and launched a Googling spree to track down the origin and back story. Turns out it's a still from a music video by a band called Us and Us Only. The video is for their song "Rapture" and I highly recommend you give it a watch/listen. I've been listening to this band on repeat all week, and I'm ridiculously glad I found them! 


I eventually want to get a tarantula tattoo to go with the Death's Head Moth I've got on my back. I've unfortunately seen very few tarantula tattoos that really impressed me, but this one by Daniel Meyer is simply incredible. Like holy wow. That's an amazing tattoo. 


Uncommon and Nice makes the neatest iPhone docking stations out of old boxes, crates and books. I love this crate dock, and the fact it includes extra storage inside is a nice bonus.  


This ouija board wall decal needs to be on my wall stat.


I love making collages, and perhaps someday I'll post pictures of some of the collage art I've done. In the meantime, check out this lovely collage created by Sue Lott and and Matthew Richards. It's currently set as the home screen on my phone.


I love strange GIFS. This one is my favorite currently!
