Links We Love, 9/1/12

Links We Love, a compendium of what we're loving right now. Happy armchair traveling.

I never want summer to be over. Never! I will make this Oaxacan punch from contributing editor Heather Taylor's beautiful blog L.A. in Bloom and drink it until sweater weather rolls in. – Crystal, Creative Director

Love 'em or hate 'em, pigeons are city icons from New York to Copenhagen to Venice. For the Biennale, artists Julian Charrierre and Julius Von Bismarcke gave those rats-of-the-sky a serious makeover — (harmlessly, we're told) airbrushing them in shades of bright green, purple, and aquamarine. Quite the metamorphosis. – Jeralyn, Editorial Director

Koala Hitches Ride on Canoe: I dare you to find a cuter news story anywhere in the world. – Pavia, Founder/CEO

I've never been a big fan of Florida, but Léo Caillard's photographs of these colorful beach huts makes me want to plan a trip to Miami ASAP. – Berit, Assistant Editor

I don't get road rage; I get road malaise: Traffic is just so boring! I was happy to see Julie Kim's Coffee Table in the City experiment is spicing up public transportation. – Crystal

Graphic designer Anna Kovecses (theoretically) rebrands American Airlines as part of a Victors and Spoils project.– Jeralyn

Jump From Paper is a company that makes bags that look like cartoon drawings. Their latest design is called Travel Fever. It's weirding me out (in a  good way). – Jeralyn

Travel by Design is one of my favorite columns in Afar. I loved this month's interview with the duo behind Opening Ceremony and learning about their favorite spots in Buenos Aires. – Berit

Gordon Harrison Hull's new rug collection for Anthropologie puts the world at your feet. The mix of weaving techniques and materials (wool, jute, and giant tassels) pulls centuries old influences in from regions known for the craft.– Crystal

"White dude working the tandoors: You go, sir!" That's from installment #2 of Real Actors Read Yelp, the hilarious new series from Gotta Kid to Feed productions. Do I even have to say it? I'm waiting for the TripAdvisor version. – Pavia

"You owe us 25 minutes of vodka!" Brian O'Neill (DamagesThe Sopranos) has a thing to say to Yost Theater.
