Humpday Links for March 20

Guten Tag, nerdlings!  Going to keep things short and sweet; I have to prepare myself, physically and spiritually, to attend a book launch tonight.  Which you should attend, by the way.  Happy Harbor, 5pm, launching not one, but two locally crafted books: Masked Mosaic by Rhonda & Jonathan Parrish; and What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank, by Krista Ball.  Checkout the Facebook thingy for more details.

On to the links!

– If you are a John Green fan (I became one the same way you fall asleep, slowly, then all at once) then here is he with Craig Ferguson.

– I was squeeing pretty hard over the trailers for this season of Doctor Who.  Then this came out.

– I hate to say it, but it looks like physicists win at marriage proposals.  The math checks out.

– While we’re on marriage, Sir Ian McKellan will officiate Sir Patrick Stewart’s wedding.  Because who else would you get?

– Next time you’re in a library, why not make poetry?

– So I wrote a little blurb about places to send your RPG work, and completely missed the Pathmaster contest over at Adventureaweek.com. So get on that!

– Have a deity question, a divine quandary? These guys will sort you out.

– So apparently, an island that everyone thought existed has vanished, because it was never there to start with.

– Personally, I want to spend a vacation on this street with a lawn chair and a popcorn machine.

– Me pal Liana Kerzner wrote an interesting article about EA, the resignation of its CEO and who should have got the sack.

– Staying with computer games, Supergiant is making the first game I’ve been intrigued by in a while.

This mug will be mine. And it may be the only warning you get…

Real gamers paint their armies.

– I love the movies and I love Doctor Who; I’d watch this.

– And finally, if you ever need an epic soundtrack for your epic day, this is the site for you.

That is all for this humpday, geekorinos!  If you have a link to share, drop it in the comments.  Otherwise I’ll see you at the book launch tonight or here tomorrow.

Humpday Links for February 27

As February draws to an end and we realize we’re about to start the third month of the year (holy effing crap, where did the first two months go!?), let us enjoy these links together.  Well, not together, I mean by the time you read this I’ll have moved on to other things…whatever, enjoy.

– Turns out there is some statistical evidence that it wasn’t the red shirt that got those crewmen killed.

More news about possibly the most significant scientific accident of our time.  The possibilities of this discovery excite the crap out of me.

– Have concerns about your grocery bill?  Here are 16 foods that can re-grow from kitchen scraps.  And it doesn’t require a farm to pull it off.

– If you enjoyed “A Knight’s Tale”, then The Jousting Life website is for you.

Here’s a great little article about the rise of Pathfinder Society, Paizo’s organized play option.  As a Venture-Captain, I approve this message.

– Given that this was the first RPG I ever owned, I will acquire this shirt eventually.

– People, there is a new Stargate computer game coming.  I’m a bit leary of the use of “unleashed” but otherwise optimistic.

– In a similar vein, there are rumours of a “Knights of the Old Republic” movie, coming…whenever.

8 Tell-tale Signs You Are a Geek.  Something about the tone of this article bothers me, but I can’t put my finger on it…

– Again, you’ve likely seen this already.  Of course, you might have also put the new Game of Thrones trailer on a loop.  For a day.  Or two.  Shut up.

– Felicia Day has decreed it, and it is so: March 30th is International Tabletop Day.  You can join or create an event here.  You can also take part in two events already happening in Edmonton and area: GOBfest, and at Mission: Fun and Games in St. Albert.

– Want to learn new things, but don’t have the time/resources to take a class?  Hank and John Green have you covered with Crash Course.  Seriously good video lessons on chemistry, biology, world and American history, and literature.

That’s it that’s all!  Enjoy your slow slide into the weekend, and I’ll be back with more geekery soon.
