I’m a fan of the US TV show Parks and Recreation and am particularly fond of the character Ron Swanson. Ron is a man’s man; he likes the great outdoors, survival and making stuff with his bare hands. He dislikes bureaucracy, vegetarians and health & safety. He really is a fantastic character and so I am overjoyed to find out that Nick Offerman, the actor who plays him, is pretty similar to his character in real-life.

Click here and check out Nick Offerman’s Woodshop where you’ll find all manner of handmade wood items, designed and made by Nick and his colleagues.

I also found out that Nick is married to Megan Mullally, Karen from Will & Grace, which makes me like him even more! I bet there’s no *ahem* wooden comedy in their household. Sorry!

Rear Window Timelapse

 

Amazing piece of work here by an artist going by jdesom. It features footage stitched together from Hitchcock’s Rear Window to give an overview of the entire film from many different perspectives at the same time. Flawless technical skill!
