I positively loved this beautiful video of a person who "plays a strangely tuned guitar in a language that we can all understand." (Thanks for this goes to Matt!)

Another cool video -- this time, of a marble machine that continues to gain complexity.

Check out these breathtaking Google Street View pictures of Antarctica (including the South Pole).

Everyone seems to be looking to capitalize on the popularity of zombies (or the popularity of figuring out how to survive their eventual rise) - here are 11 of the strangest zombie-inspired objects.

From my friend Ben, an incredible list of the best memes. So many hours wasted on these. Much-needed laughs abound.

For those who, like me, like to be tricked into learning, these Five Funny Books With Substance recommended by NPR's book blog look to be a good place to get started for mid-summer reading.

Speaking of books, this site for the Book Barn popped up in my searches this week, and it made me pine for more stores like this. Sadly we don't have anything like it in my city - do any of you guys frequent a cool local throwback shop like this? Enjoy them before they all get stamped out!

And to close, a nice weekend playlist, courtesy of Louise Brealey (who plays Molly on "Sherlock") via Twitter: "Here’s a playlist made from some of my favourite instances of darling, or darlin’, in popular music, that includes suggestions made by nice people on the social networking site, Twitter. All links to YouTube; apologies for some of the appalling videos."

Stay tuned - more links on the way tomorrow! In the meantime, send your Flossy finds to FlossyLinks@gmail.com. You can also send me a Tweet @keeneTV.
