Favorite TweetStuff (09/07/12) ~ Enjoy!

Every Friday I dish up favorites from my Twitter stream that are intriguing, funny, whimsical, and beautiful. This week, “it’s about space”, right after Gabby Giffords triumphs at the DNC, and Henri the Cat suffers some exquisite kitty existentialism ;). Enjoy!


@LillyAnn “Make visible what, without you, might perhaps have never been seen.” ~ Robert Bresson

@heykim @GabbyGiffords Leading Pledge Of Allegiance At Democratic National Convention (video)
[SEO: I will forever admire this woman for her courage, determination, inner strength, and beauty. This video brings me happy tears each time I’ve watched it.]

@legalmindedpunk “Being a woman is no longer a pre-existing condition.” ~ HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at the DNC

@Alyssa_Milano It’s Official: This Is the Best Cat Video on the Internet
[SEO: “Yesterday, the prestigious Walker Art Center held an Internet Cat Film Festival. Yes. And part of the festivities included the awarding of the show’s People’s Choice award, the result of both curation from the museum’s experts and a public vote. For the contest, the museum received over 10,000 entries….”

The winner? Henri 2, Paw de Deux, narrated in French with English subtitles, :) we now understand existentialism far better via Henri’s feline angst. See also the first video of Henri musings.


Space, the final frontier, sort of


@mashable Google Doodle Boldly Goes Where No Doodle Has Gone Before
[SEO: The link above goes to Mashable’s post about the story behind this interactive Star Trek tribute Google Doodle. You get to go on a mission with the crew! If you want to go directly to the doodle itself, beam yourself up over here!]

@BeyondMeds “When we try to pick anything out by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.” ~ John Muir

@mjdub After 35 Years, Voyager Nears Edge Of Solar System
[SEO: “Voyager 1 is now more than 11 billion miles away from Earth. It blasted off in September 1977, on a mission to Jupiter and Saturn. But it also carried a Golden Record filled with music and the sounds of our planet, in case it encountered intelligent life as it moved out toward the stars. Scientists have been eagerly waiting for Voyager 1 to become the first human-made object to leave the solar system. And in recent weeks, the spacecraft has sent back intriguing signs that it might be getting close, to the delight of researchers who have been working on it for decades.”]

@mjdub Wow! NASA Video Shows ‘Mind-Bogglingly Gorgeous’ Solar Eruption
[SEO: This is the stuff that’ll inspire some new planetary disaster movie! You can see the still photo here. It “only” extends about 500,000 miles out from the sun. Yikes.]

@BerryCashmere “I have a new philosophy. I’m only going to dread one day at a time.” ~ Charles M. Schulz
