Favorite TweetStuff (week ending 02/25/11)

Each Friday I serve up items from my Twitter Stream which are gorgeous, funny, awe-inspiring, and/or odd. We’ll get to that, but first a serious note about the earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand earlier this week:

@SarahEOlson2009 The Moment Christchurch Shook to Pieces
[SEO: A collection of images from the immediate aftermath, including the immense dust cloud kicked up in the City Business District, seen from afar.]

@heykim “Christchurch Cathedral before quake and after quake.” #nzeq

@SarahEOlson2009 Help the people of Christchurch, New Zealand http://www.redcross.org.nz/donate #eqnz

And now, my traditional favorite TweetStuff!:

@jayfarquhar ✰☺✰ When the worlds problems feel heavy ..This short film will lighten you ~ Dancing ☺♫•*¨*•★
[SEO: This is a guy named Matt who dances all over the world, getting local people to join in with him. Most of the time! See also Where the Hell Are Matt’s Outtakes, which includes funny captions as to why those particular shots were not included in the first video.]

@CatFoodBreath “There is nothing like a cat purring near your head to lull you to sleep.”

@SarahEOlson2009 Sleeping As An Art Form! | DailyCognition
[SEO: Cats in bizarre and/or cute sleep positions, and a couple of dogs, too! My favorite: Papa, Mama and Baby Cats, all sound asleep in a row, flat on their backs.]

@PsychDigest “One’s real life is often the life that one does not lead.” ~ Oscar Wilde

@docmarion Most Beautiful Places In The World
[SEO: Dozens of gorgeous, stunning photos capture these unique landmarks and landscapes.]

@JoyBing “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” ~ Albert Einstein

@AmazingPics The extraordinary face of the Moon | Discover Magazine
[SEO: “This is actually a mosaic of about 1300 separate images taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter’s Wide-Angle Camera — the total size is a whopping 24,000 x 24,000 pixels, producing a resolution of about 145 meters/pixel. The full-size version is a monster 550 Mb TIF file (seriously, don’t grab that one unless you need it!), and you can get a more palatable 1400 x 1400 pixel version with labels, too. … But it’s also one of the highest resolution image ever made too! You can appreciate that if you look at the full-res 145 meters/pixel zoom-and-panable version, which is simply extraordinary.”]

@pourmecoffee Go Discovery!

@TerryWardWriter Shuttle Discovery’s last launch as seen from 13th St. South in Cocoa Beach, Florida

@Quotes4Writers “Writing well means never having to say, ‘I guess you had to be there.'” ~ Jef Mallett
