The Thursday Threesome: Visualize Whirled Peas

This week’s topic sounds like someone had a weird hallucination, not a slogan from a t-shirt.

Onesome: Visualize– Hmmm…How are you on maps and mapping? Are you one of those people who can translate the paper version to what you’re seeing on the road? …or do you rely on a ‘trusy native guide’ (or GPS unit) to get you around someplace you’ve never been?

Make-believe maps? Sure. Real maps? Not necessarily. If the streets look like a tangled ball of yarn instead of a grid, I’m not going to make any guarantees about finding anything.

Twosome: Whirled– about in your head: did you ever have a phrase or song lyric you “just got wrong”? You know, like that Hendix “Kiss this guy” malapropism…

Off the top of my head, Elton John’s “Can You Feel The Love Tonight.” To me, it sounds like he’s saying “pack of bones” instead of “vagabonds.”

Threesome: Peas– porridge hot? Even though we’re looking to the end of Winter (at least here in the Northern Hemisphere), what has been your favorite hot meal this past few months?

Soup.

Links I Should Have Posted Earlier But Got Sidetracked

Animalcules. (via Modulator). A new carnival just for those “wee beasties”, i.e. microbes. The latest edition is posted here.

Via Neil Gaiman, a bunch of London Underground maps remixed: Going Underground (where a Guardian reporter wastes some byte space organizing musical influences through the tube) and The Great Bear (the tube map organized by “stars”–philosophers, footballers, scientists, etc.)

Dragon. (via Drawn!) Here’s the cool animation of paper cutouts for United Airlines as well as the making of the commercial.
