Procrastination Station #57

Friday, November 20th, 2009

Procrastination Station has survived the ONS breakdown too! It’s back! Unfortunately it’s rather short and sweet as I lost all my lovely bookmarks in the computer crash… I need you guys to suggest some more for me!

Magma are running a contest: free to enter, and you can win a year’s subscription. What do you have to do, I hear you cry? Just tell them which poem you’d ban from the school curriculum, and why!

Poem of the week!

I just discovered The Creamy Middles, a blog dedicated to living a life of creativity.

Margaret Atwood turned 70 on Wednesday! Wish her many happy returns on Twitter!

Neil Gaiman’s Graveyard Book wins yet more awards!

Envelope art.

Suggest a Great Poetic Moustache… and check out this Famous Moustaches Mug — awesome!

Yes, it’s a little late for Dia De Los Muertos, but I loved these lovely catrinas at Chainsaws and Jelly!

Got $1,500 kicking around? You can afford an amazing literary purse, then!

OMGWant.

I really want to learn to do this!

I love this cute animation.

& this one kind of scares me, but it’s an amazing visualisation of the poem.

There’ll be many more links next week, promise! Have a great weekend, all!
