Day One Hundred & Sixty-Three

11 Jun

Happy Monday! Here’s a bunch of stuff I’ve found around the web that I think you’ll like.

***

After Amanda Palmer’s epic Kickstarter campaign ended, she reported on Twitter that practically every major news organization was calling her. Here are three of the articles: The Economist, Fuse, and The New York Times.

***

I hesitate to post that last link, the link to the NYT article. This article from Boing Boing should explain why.

***

A re-cap of the ST:TNG Reunion Panel at Phoenix Comic Con. (I hate the title but love the article.) There are some really great pics and a really great video of the whole panel here.

***

Speaking of Star Trek, Bleeding Cool has a great pic of the five Captains.

***

I’ve quoted John Green’s rebuttal to those who use “nerd” as a derogatory term. Here, then, is Steven Dengler’s definition of “geek”.

***

One of the best, most inspiring speeches ever. Dr. Neil Gaiman:

Neil Gaiman Addresses the University of the Arts Class of 2012 from The University of the Arts (Phl) on Vimeo.

(He was awarded an honorary doctorate moments before this speech was made, which just makes the speech all the more wonderful.)

***

John Scalzi’s latest novel, Redshirts, came out two weeks ago. Jonathan Coulton wrote the book a theme song. Behold the amount of awesome on this one page.

***

Paper Passion – perfume that smells like a newly printed book. Yes, it’s a real thing. Personally I prefer the smell of old books, but this is quirky enough to try.

***

In the midst of E3 coverage, IGN found time to announce the return of the Teen Titans animated series. I’m reserving my excitement for the announcement of the premiere date. Also, I’m hoping they don’t keep the weird ‘tiny Titans’ style and go back to the pseudo-anime style of the original series.

***

That’s what I have for you this week. If you find something I missed, drop me a line in the comments or on Twitter. And as always, don’t forget to be awesome!
