Earlier this week I asked for calligraphy requests, and you responded. Anthony Lee Collins requested “The Dude abides,” a Big Lebowski quote, while my good friend Zeev went for Serenity quote “I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar.” Both excellent choices. Below are those two quotes, along with some others I’ve done in the past few days. Click to enlarge.
On to the links!
The single coolest thing I’ve seen all week: a German dude created this gorgeous copy of Tolkien’s The Silmarillion, illuminated by hand medieval-style, over the span of a year. Can you imagine how much the highest-bidding Middle Earth fan would pay for this?
This is old news, but it was news to me. They’re actually, finally, no-joke making an Ender’s Game movie, to be released November 1, 2013, with Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff. W00t!
Cracked.com has a list of the 6 creepiest places on earth. How about a forest in Japan where people go to kill themselves? Or a bridge (pictured above) where dogs go to die? Yeesh.
The Mars Rover has found something cool – “one for the history books,” according to NASA – but they won’t tell us what it is yet.
The ridiculously sexist question “Which programming language is the most female friendly?” gets the ridiculous answer it deserves. Flawless victory.
And finally, one more from Cracked.com, because I’m obsessed with them, apparently: a screenshot of Super Mario Bros. as played from Bowser’s point of view. Seriously: where can I buy this game?
See you next week!
