Bonnaroo announced its 2013 lineup! I certainly want to go.

Earlier this month, BMW designed this outlandish 42-wheel, 19-engine dream car to the exacting specifications of a 4-year-old boy. According to Laughing Squid, "The story began in late January when auto blog Jalopnik posted a note from a reader whose young nephew had just outlined specifications for his ultimate dream car, the “4219ELi.”'

There are nine movies up for the Academy Award for Best Picture this year, and Sunny Chanel of Babble asked her little 7-year-old girl to tell us what each movie was about based entirely on the movie poster. The results are, as expected, ridiculously cute.  [via Laughing Squid]

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)
