Queen's Christmas Broadcast 1957

Just the thing I've been waiting for: The Royal Family set up
a youtube account, called The Royal Channel.
On this link one can access this year's Christmas message by the Queen in a couple of days. Also very interesting is her majesty's Christmas broadcast from the early days of television 50 years ago, from 1957. Embedding has been disabled, so you have to click on the link to watch the contemplative 7min30 with which I want to wish you all a very merry ...or rather: Happy Christmas.

The Story of Stuff (thanks to Janna)

I only watched the first third so far, but I'm already convinced I should post this: The Story of Stuff with Annie Leonard.
A neatly animated 20-min movie about the chain of consumption and--more importantly--its huge flaws. Watch it before the purchase of your Christmas presents and get influenced.

Photolog pt. XII - Library Toilet Reading Flush

I know that people who go to libraries usually like to read--
On the other hand, they might also want to take a break while going to the loo.
This is what you get bombarded with when you want to wee in the toilet of our library (in chronological order).
