Greetings, Balkers, denizens of this fine BackTalk nation. I come to you from the other side of your computer screen with a SHIT ton of stuff that you guys came up with today (Holy crap I didn't realize how much content we produce on a daily basis.)
This week we said goodbye to the black-and-white ladies who ushered in talkies and hello to your favorite activities you had as a child. Let's get started!
Snacktastic offered up a one-two punch of asking for your biggest laughs in video form and then an invitation to join the Kingdom of Loathing. (Which is actually a lot more fun than it sounds: old school gamers apply here.)
Teapot suggested we should have our own mixtape challenge, which really, mixtape and challenge in the same phrase means nothing could go wrong.
MissNormaDesmond introduced us to the great work that Gloria Swanson did in taking on ageism and sexism in popular culture.
Late last night, Snacks posted a beautiful picture of Loi Krathong celebrations in Thailand.
Zhandi provided us with the BuzzFeed certified test to determine what kind of bitch you are...
Followed up by a GIF collage of an adorable deer (and a pretty cute worker, to boot)...
And rounding out the triple play with a very pretty picture of Seattle (from Kerry Park, a place I have a lot of feels, Zhandi! How dare you get me in touch with my nostalgic emotions already!)
When morning broke, Snacks got us started off with the very playful Google Doodle of John Venn's birthday and his eponymous diagram...
FOLLOWED BY THE THEME OF THE WEEK WHICH IS CHILDHOOD ACTIVITIES (OF WHICH I CAN ONLY ASSUME WRITING IN ALL CAPS IS A MAJOR EXAMPLE).
Lucky Kittah showed us how internet synergy works with this hilarious mashup of Dr. Who, Doge, and retro 3D glasses on a tee shirt for $12. (A pic I had to steal for this post's featured image):
EasttoMidwest gave us our daily rendezvous point for the best links you find on the internet.
LemonadeLover falls right into the theme of the week by asking us some hard-hitting questions related to childhood's most infamous exercise.
intherain picked up the theme, too, with some heartwarming childhood-related memories about our imaginary freinds.
NYCyclist invited all the New Yorkers in the house to go see St. Vincent at Prospect Park this Saturday.
Owl IS STILL POSTING BACKLOOK POSTS WHEN SHE SHOULD BE THINKING ABOUT HERSELF :-P
Snacktastic invited to think about some of the different kind of games that we all play as children.
Scylla invited us into the scintillating world of the lying liar-pants, bearded Duck Dynasty neighbor soap opera that really sounds like it should be its own reality TV show.
Graby Sauce wanted to let us all know that Ebola is going to be the end of us.
blameitonthecroutons flips out over board game flipping.
We got word (while I was composing this Round Up) from Mr. Owl that our Owl is doing fine. YAY!!!!
nothip posted the very necessary pictures of Peter Dinklage with a variety of manly accessories for Mancandy Monday.
Teapot shared her love of cookies growing up.
intherain reminisces on more childhood games, this time "It."
Graby Sauce provides a much needed update on the Ebola scare.
LaChategris laments that she's losing her husband to video games (someone call MomsAgainstGaming).
And finally NYCyclist posts some seriously delicious looking pics from a new favorite restaurant.
GREAT JOB GUYS, THAT'S ALL FOR TODAY'S ROUND UP!
