#WW 23: CATS, GAGA, AND PANCAKES. All Delicious with Syrup?

Even though I am NOT even at home....
I care so much for you, loyal reader, that I am posting this #WW in absentia
Enjoy:


1.) Lady Gaga. I love this video, even if it is a few weeks old at this point - it is still worth watching 
     again! You know how I enjoy her. Well, I love this song on the new album. It is kinda Elton 
     John-y. For those of you who don';t know it, it was produced by Mutt Lange (Shania's former 
     husband who banged her best friend - you know that old chestnut) Anyways...don't hate it because of 
     that. 
     Check out the weirdo video at this LINK on her site!

2.) Modern for Kids Dot Com. Cool stuff, that appeals to me. Because I am a big kid? Maybe. I saw her at the Sunday ANTIQUE Market at The Brickworks, (read that blog entry HERE) but she has an online store. Here is the bio for the site:




"At Modern for Kids you will find vintage and contemporary collectible prints and toys for kids. I have searched the globe to bring to the webshop vintage items that are one of a kind or hard to find as well as lots of nostalgic items and a unique selection of handcrafted contemporary crafts and art.There are unique handmade matroyshka dolls with paint kits from Russia, collectible wood toys from Denmark, circus posters and pennants from mid century USA, vintage children’s books with gorgeous illustrations dating back to the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. I am constantly searching through thousands of items just to find the few that appeal to a more modern aesthetic and have lovely colours, shape and or design."



3.) Remember last week when I talked to you about my obsession with panakers? (that is short for for pancake makers) Well, my number 2 pick for 'cakes is The George Street Diner. GSD is right downtown Toronto, and you DO NOT want to miss it. You can have regular buttermilk pancakes or have them with blueberries or banana chocolate chip. All are DEEELISH! But, wait, that's not all. Not only are the 'cakes YUMMERS, the place is FANTASTIC LOOKING!!! Cool and retro (and quite inexpensive!!!) Here are some pics:




4.) Ok, so you know about my opbsession with Abandonned and creepy places? No? Try reading THIS POST about some USA creepies....or THIS POST about creepy abandoned Theme Parks. Or even THIS POST about decaying Yugoslavian Landmarks. These are must sees for you newbies and a great Re-read for you loyalists. Anyways, so here is another creepy place. LOVE IT!





Google mapped!!!
Here is the little settlement of San Zhi, in Taiwan. I love the 60's mod look of it. It is nothing short of spectacular!! It was built to become a very tourist driven spot when a series of “mysterious accidents” plagued the settlement upon completion. DUM DUM DUM (that was my best scary sound effect) Ok...it was a series of deaths that halted the completion of this little complex. YIKES. Anyways, so it was never actually used, and was just left to rot. Local religious beliefs held the complex to be the base of angry spirits, which is supposedly why it was never demolished. Enjoy these photos I "stole" from  Yusheng (above) and Carrie Kellenberger: 





5.) My newest trend on #WW's seems to be to end on a laugh.....so here is this. 
Cat Scans. This one is for Cindy and Adrienne and Michelle and Mark and all the other cat ladies. Here is what it is about:
"Got a cat? Got a scanner? The choice is clear. 
We also rummage the interwebs searching for cats on scanners, if we posted your cat without your permission and you don't want it featured on this utterly adorable blog, please let us know and we'll oblige.
"




There you go!!! Hope you enjoyed the post!!
