Best Content that I Didn't Provide

Sorry, I am definitely not posting anything myself today. But might I recommend the three following internet attractions?

My favorite blog used to be Curbed (don't go there, it's not my favorite anymore), but now I'm obsessed with the low airline fairs posted daily at newyorkairfares.blogspot.com.

Do you like camping? Better said, do you like it when other people go camping and have pictures of it? Still not interested? Do you like marshmallows? My sister and brother-in-law's blog has fun camping photos, with marshmallows.

The Chronicles of Narnia trailer is up. Lord of the Rings has ruined everything. Why does it have to be so large-scale and orc-y? The impression I had from those books was that everything took place around pine needles and fireplaces.

Re: The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe.

I think you could probably say the same thing about the upcoming Star Wars film. Too epic, too sweeping, and too...Mount-Doom-ish.

Also, I don't recall a pine-needles & fireplaces feel to the first book, but then I haven't read them in more than a decade. However I plan on re-reading them before the movie's release, so we'll see...

I haven't had anything to do with the Lion, Witch, and Wardrobe since first or second grade at the latest, so I'm digging deep into the memories here and all I'm getting is kids in fur coats, pinetrees, a faun, turkish delight, and sleighs. Even when everyone got together to kill the lion it just seemed like several dozen people in the dark.

One might say the same about Episode III, but I wouldn't.

Oh no, my young Brigham. You will find that it is you who are mistaken, about a great many things... :D
