Nodds & Nends: Weddings, Monster Uterus, and Sesame Street
The Mary Sue had a whole posting on one geeky couples Little Mermaid -Disney themed wedding. The Bridesmaids dressed up like the other Disney Princesses. I must say, I do like how colorful the wedding is. Plus outside weddings are always pretty. Even when they are sticky with heat.
On Hack a Day, these really geeky wedding invitations came with a hidden message. Now that is my kind of geek.
I discovered I’m not the only one who thinks of her uterus as a monster. Check out this illustration of one on Head Trip, one of my favorite webcomics. And not just because she has red hair.
Jim Butcher sold rights to a steampunk series that he is still writing. It really sounds awesome. While I love the Dresden Files series, I’m not a fan of his fantasy series Codex Alera (too Madonna vs. the Whore for me), so I’ll be interested to see what this new series is like. Here is the blurb from Publishers Weekly:
Penguin Group is continuing its relationship with bestselling fantasy writer Jim Butcher. The author of the Dresden Files and Codex Alera closed a seven-figure, three-book deal with his current publisher for a new series. Anne Sowards, at Roc, took world English rights to The Cinder Spires: The Aeronaut’s Windlass, and two sequels, from agent Jennifer Jackson at Donald Maass Literary. Butcher recently published the 14th book in the Dresden Files, a series that has been adapted to TV (on SyFy channel) and turned into a comic book (published by Dynamite Entertainment). The Cinder Spires, Jackson said, is set in a world “of black spires that tower for miles over a mist-shrouded surface” and follows a war between two of the Spires: Spire Albion and Spire Aurora.
Also, found on the internets this week, ZOMBIE BUNNIES OF CHOCOLATELY GOODNESS. I repeat CHOCOLATE ZOMBIE BUNNIES!!! It isn’t April Fools yet, so I’m going to believe this is real.
Speaking of bunnies. My best friend’s brother created a fan video for a contest to be the official video of the band The Birthday Massacre. My best friend stars and my brother-in-law helped with graphics. I’m obviously biased, but it is a cool video and only takes five minutes to watch and a second to give it a thumbs up. Also, a real bunny makes an appearance! Bonus points.
But the best thing I found on the internets recently (i.e. The Mary Sue’s twitter feed), Joseph Gordon-Levitt is on Sesame Street. It is as adorable and as awesome as you think it will be.
