Link of the day: Luck and choices

I read an interesting psychology article about so-called "luck" (via Lifehacker). A UK psychologist studied "lucky" versus "unlucky" people. I wouldn't call it luck, but rather a good attitude and a positive, optimistic attitude. According to the results of the study, having those things make you more open to new possibilities and opportunities.

Again from Lifehacker, I found this poetic image entitled "When faced with two choices." It reads "When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment when the coin is in the air, you suddenly know what you were hoping for." I interpret this as: if you are having a hard time making a choice, force yourself to make a decision in a split second. Then you'll go with your intuition and feelings.

Link of the day: Canon 7D + Lensbaby used to shoot Hollywood television

Awesome! I didn't know big-time Hollywood people were using the Canon 7D (+ the Lensbaby!) to shoot television. Read all about it in this post by Philip Bloom. Too bad I can't find the relevant clip from "Dollhouse" but according to the information in the post, I believe it is in the episode "Belonging."
