Alright, let’s see what we have today. First up, the second season of Zombies, Run! was just released. I’m still working my way through their training program and season 1, but it really is an awesome way to get into running:
And this is just asshatery at it’s finest. Much like the owner of Papa John’s saying that if Obama is reelected he’ll have to raise pizza prices for his customers.
Angry Birds Star Wars is coming, and I’m excited. Cautious, but excited:
PTSD is absolutely vicious, and the VA at best sometimes, seems incompetent. Will this work, I’m not sure, but I hope it can at least bring some conversation to the table at the condition and how we can work together to support our veterans.
Quick update for everyone, let’s see what I have this time. On a side note, I’m finally getting to some really old links I’ve had stored away, so hopefully I’ll be getting through most of them soon, although I’ll have to see how many links still work. Anyway, onto the content.
Happy Monday everyone! Let’s see what we have today:
First up, this ad aired only in Canada during the Super Bowl, but I really like it:
Interesting ad from Copyranter:
What a strange caveat.
Lego is releasing LotR sets, and I’m super excited for them, as well as the inevitable video games. Check it out here.
Amazing post from Literally Unbelievable:
I still need to see Thor and Captain America, but here is the preview for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, and I’m already making plans to go see it:
Another ad from Copyranger, kind of awesome, would be cool to see this run in City Paper:
I love the toast to Jared in this:
And this ad has been making its rounds, I think it’s fairly well done (or at least a good idea, the art needs some work), although a objectifying to women, I hope there’s a male counterpart in the campaign:
And finally, every presentation you’ll sit through, ever:
Let’s give this a second try…(first time did not save and I lost everything). Hey everybody! Lots of fun links to pass on, and I’ll be updating The Great and Secret Show as well, so stay tuned for more later this weekend as well.
I’ve found a lot of old links (from a few months ago), so I’ll only be posting the relevant ones, hope you enjoy:
Pittsburgh Sports and Mini Ponies is about exactly what you think, or at least their banner is. The site is on Bloquin, so good luck trying to get it to display correctly or have a working RSS feed though.
I hate the Wesboro Baptist Church as much as anyone. But I love that they tried to take on the San Diego Comic Con and lost, so bad (and this doesn’t even show the parade the attendees put on as a counter protest). Strong language and logic that will make your head explode about eight times:
Here is a cool chart showing different aspects on covers of fantasy book. I can’t embed it here, for some reason it breaks Joomla. Sorry!
And really, at this point, you’re just showing off:
Okay, that’s it for this one, shorter update, but more to come soon!
I love Fleury, a whole lot. Here’s him and Sid talking about the snow (which I realize is ridiculous on at least three levels, but hey, it’s fun):
Speaking of Fleury and Sid, Olympics! Here’s what Slate suggested you watch if you watch just one thing a day. A really funny read (and I apologize in advance for the tardiness of all the Olympic articles, I got so caught up in the games that I didn’t write about them). And here is their awesome Sap-O-Meter. I’ll give you a hint, NBC is really sappy, and generally, awful at covering the Olympics.
I don’t know what’s going on in this picture, but we are seeing Bob Costas outside of his living room, so it’s got to be a plus. Also, Colbert! Make sure you watch this video that I’m not allowed to embed. Stupid NBC.
Slate also takes a stab at the biathalon. Awesome read, which just helps me galvanize my mindset that it’s a weird sport. I have more respect for it, but it’s weird.
I’m thinking it may not be actually from Verizon, but this is an awesome blend of nostalgia and current technology:
This might be one of my new favorite sites, someone watching season six of Lost, who has never seen it. It’s worth it just for the drawings!
And the healthcare debate rages on, it’s a few days old, but still worth a watch. Rachel Maddow is, of course, amazing:
A gut wrenching blog entry over at PG+, if you’re a subscriber, check out the link. If not, consider signing up! And I know I’ve promised to talk about it over at Metblogs, and I still am planning on doing that, I promise!
A great follow up to the video clips I posted before about the phrase “fucking retard.” As in, “Sarah Palin is a fucking retard.”
I’ve been really, really excited about the return of URU. To help you get into the Myst spirit, check out this awesome online fan project – Myst and Riven books! And in related news, over a million people are now playing D&D online, probably because it’s free (with some premium content). Maybe we’ll see a lot of interest in URU! We can only hope!
