Frrrrriday Rrrrroundup! #18

An end-of-weekly roundup collecting fffffive of the fffffantabulous things I find stumbling around the web during the week here, but which I post on one of the many other Internet outlets I stop by (or tweet at) during my travels. More about the genesis here.

By now, you’ve heard of workingman’s hero, airline attendent Steven Slater, who told an a-hole customer where he could go, grabbed two beers from the galley and skedaddled via the inflatable emergency ramp. But have you heard the anthem? (Warning: contains swears! But you’re used to that kind of thing around here!) [Facebook-ed, via daring fireball]

Mike Tyson has walked through the fire and has something to tell you about it. Not that he’d put it that way, he’s actually been through the fire, you see. [delicious-ed, via Ben Casnocha]

How to be alone. [YouTube-d, via everybody everywhere]

Any veteran of the music biz who’s still around and kicking and FUNNY knows a thing or two about a thing or two. Bob Lefsetz writes about all the smart things he knows, like the fame/artistry schism in music, and when it shifted, in his daily newsletter.  [Tumbld]

If I were still designing, I think I might just replace my landing page copy with this brilliant piece by Mike Monteiro on when, why and how you should purchase design services. [Tweeted]

Thanks for the point to Bob “Rightstands” Lefsetz’s newsletter — didn’t know were he was these days…
And for the intro to Mike Monteiro’s swell article, sorry, post.

And may I suggest you might like a new find I just tweeted: FiveBooks.com — “written matter for your gray matter” — in which expert authors suggest 5 books on topic with short intros… similar to a favorite column in the Wall Street Journal’s “Personal Journal” section, also called “5 Books” (weekly picks on one topic from different smart cookies.)

Thanks for keeping me hot, cool, with it and happ’nin’ ~ and yes, that’s about as contemporary as this old inky-mess-of-dead-trees-lover gets.
