Weekly Wrap-Up

 This is a new section looking at the interesting, hilarious and odd things I have discovered in the previous 7 days.

Culture

With the death of Lauren Bacall this week All 16 of the Icons Name-Dropped in Madonna’s ‘Vogue’ are Now Gone. The only upside to this is that music video still looks incredible 24 years on, which is something that can be said about very few music videos.

Do you have a question about death that you are afraid to ask? Well, Ask A Mortician is here for you. This You Tube channel run by real-life Mortician Caitlin Doughty will answer every question you had about death, even some that maybe you never really wanted to know the answer to.

Germany

Understanding Germany – This is a blog that all expats living in Germany should be reading as it explains the sometimes bewildering and impenetrable German society, culture and politics. This blog is written by a born & bred German so you know you are getting the inside scoop rather than an expat’s take on it.

Humour

And that’s why you should learn to pick your battles – Everyone needs to learn to pick their battles in life, but somehow I think that being married to Jenny aka The Bloggess would result in hilarious consequences no matter what battles you picked.

Language

Get Germanized – A You Tube channel looking at German language and culture. The videos about German culture are a little gimmicky and sometimes over the top, but the German lesson and slang videos are solid. However, where this channel shines is the German word of the day, which is only available to Facebook & Twitter fans.

  1. It’s odd. I’ve been thinking about death recently and was wondering how undertakers work…. I now have the perfect place to ask my morbid questions! How did you come a cross that site anyhow?!

    • Welcome from BlogLovin.
      I’ve had an interest in death since I was young so I still do a fair bit of reading in this area these days. This site actually came up on another site where I was reading about historical medical methods.
