Quick update for everyone, let’s see what I have today. First up, from Better Book Titles, “The Colour of Magic” which is the first book of an amazing series:
If you haven’t watched it before, a short TED talk by Frank Warren of PostSecret. Fun fact, whenever the conversation comes to who I could have dinner with if I could with anyone in the world, Warren is always on my list. I saw him speak at Pitt and it was amazing, so check out the talk.
Good Old Games is finally able to offer the Quest for Glory series. All five games! I’m totally excited and going to be losing a lot of time to these (one and five are the best, in my opinion). Such amazing games!
I’m trying to find a link, but the rumor I heard on a podcast is that in the upcoming Spiderman tie in game, if you preorder (I think from Amazon), you unlock the ability to play as Stan Lee in one of the levels. Epic!
Remember when Florida passed the law requiring those getting aid to pass a drug test? At a cost charged to those getting aid? Well as it turns out, only 2% tested positive. Compared to the entire population of Florida, which has a drug-use rate of over 8%.
I have no idea when Girl Scout Cookie time is, but here you go, the sales of the cookies, by variety:
So up in Maine, the Republican governor was so incensed by a mural depicting the labor in his state, he had it removed (which I guess is now angering the people who put up the money for it, but that’s a legal battle for another day). I think this is a fantastic way of protesting (it’s not a bad mural, although I’m not a huge fan of the colors used or art style, but hey, that’s not the point):
Infuriated by the police blaming the victim in sexual assault cases, in Toronto, a “Slut Walk” was organized, with over 2,000 people attending.
Copyranter wrote about a previous Hot Wheels installation, putting two giant kids on the side of the highway, watching the road like it was their track. This one is better though, and it’s been picked up by a lot of sites:
The giant news that has overtaken my twitter and Facebook feeds is that the next Batman will be doing some filming here in Pittsburgh, probably in July. Nerdist has a great article about the inevitable reboot that is set to happen after this third movie. Go over and read “Reboot Rage.”
First, I have to mention that one of the comments on YouTube brings up a good question, what about pajamas? But anyway, we had a group that was using the conference center that I was helping to get a quote and put together their permit for their stay. They actually split off from another group that used the same facility because the original group decided that women were in fact allowed to wear pants. As they were explaining their new name to me (so we could get all the paperwork straightened out), they were trying to pull me into the theological discussion. I quickly left under the guise of putting their check in the safe and drawing up their permit. Good gravy.
That’s it for now, hopefully I’ll continue to feel better, catch everybody later!
