So fast. But it’s not done yet. There’s still time for these links!

The Grammies: What Should Have Won

The Grammies: What Should Have Won

“Before we all lose our minds over who wins big at the 60th annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, it might be helpful to remember that the Grammys have always been lousy at celebrating the present and even worse at predicting the future.”

The Washington Post’s Chris Richards re-picks the past 38 years of Grammies, focusing on the really innovative works versus corporate (or “who knows why”) winners.

Some great choices here.

Little Brick Lane

Little Brick Lane

“Have a scale model of your home built exclusively out of Lego pieces! Celebrate your home with this creative art form and the perfect addition to your home decor!”

Pricey, but pretty cool.

The Selfie Toaster

This artist accepts an image of your face – only one face in the image, very important – and creates a custom insert for your toaster to “print” that face on your toast.

Ugent: Map Quiz

A map quiz game where you have to accurately guess how much larger one country is versus another.

I scored 64%! They’re pretty picky about the accuracy of the sizing.

United States Capitol Subway System: A Brief History
