Welcome to the last humpday link of October! I hope everyone has fun spooky plans for Nerd Christmas! I will be dressing up as a beloved family character from DC Vertigo, joining a few of my friends dressed as my brothers/sisters. But to get us through the day and closer to the Sea of Parties this weekend, enjoy these links with my compliments…
– Somewhere along the way I lost mine, but you can now enjoy The Official Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Colouring Book online. Print off the pages and get your crayons!
– courtesy of @bingofuel (who you should be following on the Twitters), a baby deals with wasabi like a boss!
– The latest expansion for Settlers of Catan will eerily mirror current societal concerns.
– The next time you’re sitting in a waiting room bored out of your mind, grab a pen and leave a little surprise for the next person…
– This one is for my pal @nitabing: Legend of Zelda Hylian Shield
– Who wouldn’t want George Takei talking from their pants?
– Arguably the best part of the Police Academy movies, Michael Winslow gives us a little Zeppelin…
– Out Of The Box Publishing has a shiny new site, and you need to check it out!
– If Disney got a hold of Sin City, it might look a lot like this. I’d…I’d still watch it…Don’t judge me!
– I’m not saying you can’t be a geek if you haven’t read these books, but Wired is. I’m just agreeing with them.
– Offered without comment: coffee wine.
– Hammers of War is a snazzy little Warhammer 40K documentary shot down in Calgary.
– Local steampunk scholar Mike Perschon was interviewed by Judith Graves. If you want more of The Steam Scholar, check out his panels at Pure Spec this year.
– Here are the five finalists in the Battle of the Geek Bands. No surprise, Kirby Krackle is one of them.
– Finally, courtesy of @redlianak, comes the Globe & Mail telling us that candy isn’t all bad…
That should hold you. Now get out there and get your Halloween costume!
One thought on “Humpday Links for October 26”
Of those “essential geek” books, I’ve only read 5. And of those 5, There’s 2 of ZOMG BEST BOOK EVER (Watchmen, Ender), 2 of ZOMG WORST BOOK EVER (Hitchhiker, Fellowship) and 1 MEH (Neuromancer).
Of the books I haven’t read, the AD&D DMG is now owned by me, but I don’t know if I’ll read it or not. Snow Crash sounds interesting and I’m considering picking it up. The remaining books are probably going to continue to remain for all time.
Does that make me less of a geek?
