Twitter Link Roundup #292 – Ideas and Info For Small Business, Startups, and Designers!

Could this be my favorite movie of the past 25 years? Maybe. Is this my favorite television series of all time? I should say so. Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction is a quintessential genre film from 1994. It helped to re-energize and re-define for a new generation of viewers a classic vein of filmic storytelling. Breaking Bad, ran for 5 fabulous seasons on AMC and used many of the same conventions, iconography, and storytelling techniques as Tarantino’s classic. So just how much do these two examples of filmed entertainment have in common? Editor Jorge Luengo Ruiz took the time, did the research, and pulled together the scenes and shot that answer this question. Have a look at this video to see! My advice to you? Do NOT answer that knock at the door….

Pretty convincing, right? Well calm your heart and still the surf music, because it’s time for you to enjoy another fabulous set of links and articles that we shared with you over the past week on our  crowdSPRING Twitter account (as well as my own Twitter account)! We do love sharing articles about fonts, logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, economics and other interesting stuff! Enjoy!
