Digital Scrapbook: September 2013

So I keep a little folder on my desktop named “digital scrapbook.” It was created when my screenshot-happy ways began to crowd out the important stuff on my desktop; now they can all reside out of sight in this liberally-curated archival folder. Sometimes the screenshots are visual notes about things I want to look into or phrases and ideas I want to remember. Sometimes they’re historical record; or evidence of some point or idea I might be having. With a few boxes of passed notes, pictures, cut-outs from teen poetry journals, love letters, tabloid pictures of Angelina Jolie and mid-90s copies of Seventeen and Jane magazines in my parents attic, I’m a just a little bit of a document hoarder, I guess. I hate the ephemeral. So it makes sense that I tend to clip and save little pieces of the Internet.

Because I’m having blogger’s block today, I’m going to open up my digital scrapbook to you. Here is a selection of things I felt necessary to screenshot or save to it this September (many for reasons now mysterious to me), along with any titles I save them as. Ummm … enjoy?
