Friday Links & Calligraphy!

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.

The most badass leaf-related quote of all time.

On to the links!

Try *this* on a Kindle.

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?

Yay for text

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!

VELCOME TO MY BRIDGE 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.

You're on Candid Camera!

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.

87.3% of statistics are made up on the spot.

The ridiculously sexist question “Which programming language is the most female friendly?” gets the ridiculous answer it deserves. Flawless victory.

I would play the *shit* out of this game

And finally, one more from, 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!

  1. Thanks for writing out my quote. Serenity is a bittersweet thing for me. Every time I’m reminded of it, I remember how good Firefly was but then I get sad because FOX will never sell the rights to the show.

    Have a great weekend.
