Around midnight last night, comedian Paul F. Tompkins tweeted that he was on a plane with wi-fi, so he'd be live-tweeting the Skymall catalog. As a Paul F. Tompkins fan who has a love-hate relationship with the Skymall catalog, this made for a great evening. Especially when read while listening to his recent cover of Adele's Skyfall at a Largo show.
Here's just a quick summary of the pictures and tweets:
