Weekend Links #13

Weekend Links is a collection of the interesting bits and pieces that I’ve come across on the streets and online. The weekly post is my chance to share with you a few things from the week, in a list compiled during the weekend. I hope you enjoy them as well.

A few things I enjoyed this week:
1. Seeing the beautiful 2011 NPR calendar (pictured above)
2. Listening to The Decemberists’ new album The King is Dead streaming online at NPR until the release date on 18 January. Looking forward to their concert at Paradiso on 14 March
3. Anticipating the release of the latest film adaptation of Jane Eyre directed by Cary Fukunaga, which appears to be very inspired by the 2006 BBC production (via spaceships, pictured below)
4. Reading Tom Waits new poem Seeds on Hard Ground about homelessness and poverty
5. Watching Jon Stewart’s response to the events in Arizona

  1. Love the NPR calendar! I also really loved Waits’ poem. Thanks for sharing some great links! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    • Isn’t the calendar great? I can’t seem to find it anywhere though. The Waits poem is really touching. I’m glad you enjoyed them!

  2. The NPR calendar is to die for. I’m melting a little! I’m definitely excited for Jane Eyre. I saw the trailer for it when I went to a movie yesterday! Ah!

    • I can’t wait for the movie to come out. Have you seen the BBC version made just a few years ago? Definitely a lot of similarities.
