Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.
In belated honor of Earth Day, which probably shouldn’t be a random thing.
I’d apologize for all the puns, but y’all know I’d be lying.
The Architectural Library of the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands
suffered a terrible fire a while ago.

Brian Dettmer is an artist
whose art is books

This one is made of a set of the New Books of Knowledge.

Jane saw this and told me she wants to learn how to make spinach whistles.
It’s the first time she’s volunteered to get “that weird green stuff” that close to her digestive system.
I’ve shown this before, so it’s a recycled video about repurposing.
Because I’m just that
Bitten by the Chapell Bug(s)
Julie Alice Chappell makes beautiful insects out of recycled electronics.
This one was made from bits of old gaming console.
Ms. Chapell has an Etsy shop,
which I visited in hopes of finding the above
(or one of his siblings)
who was bitten by the Nintendo bug years ago.
Unfortunately, at the posting of this,
it looks like she’s sold out of all her stock.
I’m disappointed, but not surprised—
look at the stunning detail!
Prelude for Boomwhackers
Part Bach, part Bojutsu, part rainbow.
(My husband found this—you’re right, it’s randomly perfect.)
