New Web Series Alert: “The Misselthwaite Archives” Based on The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

I. Am SO excited for this. Frances Hodgson Burnett’s 1911 book is one of the most beloved children’s books in the world, and one of my personal favorite books, so utterly magical. The first episode of this dodges the mistakes I’ve seen a lot of webseries make as far as labored explication and overly-long dialogue; it jumps refreshingly straight into the story with an outspoken, sarcastic Mary, yet also lets viewers engage with her immediately by referencing her tragic past. I expect to love this.

Caffeinated Links: Louis-Dreyfuss and Seinfeld Sing, Eating Well on $35/Week, Leaf Art

Omid Asadi makes the most exquisite hand-cut leaf art.

Stephen Colbert has a hilarious take on the Orlando Bloom/Justin Bieber spat. This is real news, folks. And Mashable has all the funniest Twitter responses.

The manga Soul Reviver, which is about two soul revivers who have the ability to move between the worlds of the living and the dead and to bring certain people back whose mission on Earth was not complete at the time of their demise, is coming to Hollywood as a live action movie. I am excited. RT

Lifehacker is running an experiment on eating well on only $35 a week. It’s fascinating and important. RT

Really gorgeous cover of Sam Smith’s “Stay with Me” by, of all people, Vin Diesel (love that man. Is there nothing he can’t do?). The actor’s voice is surprisingly deep-timbred and he gives it a sexy, rich depth.

How did I miss this at the time? Oh right…I was living in a third-world country. Julia Louis-Dreyfuss and Seinfeld reunite to sing The Sound of Music. It’s perfection. Also, they have incredible chemistry.

Design Love: Otherworldly Sink

Today’s design love comes via Dezeen, which highlighted this stainless steel bit of gorgeousness from Canadian studio The Practice of Everyday Design.

“The idea was to give it a sense of time, as if someone had sat there every day scrubbing the surface until it was so clean it became a mirror,” says Antoine Morris. “The final effect is also almost as if the sink is covered in condensation and someone wiped just one area clean to see themselves.”

The effect is one of ethereal, haunting beauty, as if someone drew back a curtain to reveal a window into another world. Love.
