Sixty Years Of Memories For my dad's 60th birthday last week, I wanted to do something really fun. My dad and I talk a lot about the past---nostalgia runs in our blood, I think---and we both love to reminisce. Inspired by Jordan Ferney's Postcard Birthday Poster, I started batting around an idea: what if I could get everyone from my dad's past to contribute a memory they had of him? What if I had all those people send their memories to me, and then I put each one into an envelope---sixty total, of course---and had him open them, one by one, on his birthday? That would be a lot of memories, right? Rebecca Black Donating 'Friday' Proceeds to Japan YouTube singing star Rebecca Black is using her overnight fame for a good cause. The 13-year-old singer, who touched off a nerve with her budget hit, "Friday," told Us magazine she will donate the profits of her iTunes song to emergency relief efforts in Japan as well as to her school.

"My school, El Rancho Charter, is really where I started focusing on singing," she said. "I feel bad.

It’s because the Britannica holds a warm, nostalgic seat in my memory; I always felt in awe of those gorgeously bound complete sets that were displayed at the libraries of my school and university. They symbolised this great and historic tradition of enlightened learning, and while this symbolism can technically live on through digital media, there is something undeniably more tangible to the symbolism of a physical copy. And yet, this news has long been a foregone conclusion, given the absurdity of owning a hardcover 32-volume library costing around $1,400, and that information becomes ever more outdated from the date its published and bought.
