Links: Music and Cute Animals

Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.Are we at week five? I think so.

The theme of this is edition of Links is “music and cute animals.” That’s it. It’s not going to be any simpler than that.

Lately, I need to keep my brain engaged, but not too engaged if that makes sense. I’ve been watched a lot of adorable animal videos and discovering good things to listen to.

What about you? Feeling the same?

Watch these kittens explore the Georgia Aquarium!

I loved this “surf cover” of Britney Spears’ “Toxic.”

Watch these gerbils destroy a tiny museum!

I am in awe of this mashup creation. 

Author S. Jae-Jones retweeted this delightful video into my timeline and I then had to track down the actual song. Here are both!

Don’t forget to share what super cool things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!

    If you really need some cute animals in your life, you can treat yourself to a virtual petting zoo experience: https://www.tinytailstoyou.com/virtual

    Or invite a llama to your next zoom meeting: https://www.businessinsider.com/zoom-video-goat-2-meeting-llama-sweet-farm-animals-cameo-2020-4?amp&__twitter_impression=true

    (I can actually vouch for the first link, someone used them for a group event for my kiddo’s daycare and they did a great job)

    My best friend’s birthday is today. Her son called a number of friends, hooked us up with Zoom, and had us all call in today for a surprise party. Alas, we could not eat the cake. Still, a wonderful thing in a quarantine.

    If you want to experience the freedom of the vast steppe, complete with lots of horses, campfires, and a nice caftan, then this Mongolian video is for you:

    I honestly listened for shits and giggles the first time (like most of the commenters on the video, I guess), but then it grew on me! It’s actually really catchy! And I really want a caftan like that.
