Half of the fun in procrastinating on the Internet is the opportunity for unexpected education. To help you get back to being a productive human being, for today at least, here are some quick learnings curated from around the Blogads network:

MethodshopPortland vs. Austin
With the addition of the Portland Digital eXperience (PDX) to the MusicFestNW lineup, MFNW may be the new and arguably better version of Austin’s SXSW. Well, I’ll be!

Regretsy – View It in a Room
“Claw Predator Rings” are a real thing. These exist in the world. Someone makes these…and now you’re better for knowing.

The Comics Curmudgeon – I’ll just have to “suspend” my disbelief (that anyone would say this ever)
Low-end suspenders are slightly more affordable than low-end belts. This, I truly did not know.

Lamebook – Spelling Counts
Proof-reading is dead. This isn’t breaking news, but we should all take a moment. RIP.

Crazy Aunt Purl – A year from now you’ll wish you had started today
September is a great month to start fresh on a goal. New Year’s resolutions are for suckers.
