Humpday Links for February 1

A new year, a new month, a new batch of humpday links.  The symmetry surely do boggle the mind, don’t it?

– Right after the Walking Dead premiere, you can watch the new Kevin Smith joint Comic Book Men.  I am excited by it, my buddy Brendon is less so.  Let’s see who’s right!

This is what every Star Trek nerd wants to have in their living room.  Okay, maybe not, but face it: you just aren’t getting that Tasha Yar sponge-bath anytime soon…

– With fears of SOPA/PIPA floating about, here is a pretty reasonable way for Hollywood to combat piracy in a positive way.  Of course, Hollywood and “positive way” don’t have the best track record, so…

– Not for nothing, but the first player to bring me this beauty gets an immediate free level.  Doesn’t even have to be one of my players, I’ll clear it with your GM.

– I’ve read too much Lovecraft not to expect the next headline to read, “Contact Lost with Russian Antarctic Research Station”

– So after 10 years Neil Gaiman finally won his suit against Todd McFarlane.  Some charities are about to become very happy.

– A little something from my “Sweet Mother of God, That is Cool!” file

This link goes out to my buddy Andy, the origami sensei.

– Presented without comment: records and music made from the rings of trees.

– Because I have been remiss in filling my funny cat video quota, I give you this.  I think the epic score is what sets it apart.

– In case you are wondering why your favourite Watchmen fan is swearing/cheering, DC confirms there will be a prequel series of comics featuring the iconic characters.

– This Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal is the reason I’ve installed a spit-guard in front of my computer screen…

– And finally, xkcd demonstrates why I should never be in charge of naming my daughter.

That’s it for today!  As always, if you have a link you want to share just drop it in the comments.  And join me tomorrow as I update my convention schedule…

Update!  Thanks to my pal Brittney, I have to share this video of Kristen Bell’s Sloth Meltdown, because I love Kristen Bell and she is so damn cute in this.  Also, Ellen is hilarious.

Humpday Links for October 19

Another week, another Wednesday, another batch of links for your surfing pleasure.  Here at Renaissance Dork we spare no expense in providing you with the finest free-range web content, lovingly typed by our own grain-fed dork.  Bon appetite!

– Speaking of conventions (I was, I don’t know what you were speaking of),  here are 15 people you will see at every nerd convention.

– Like Lego?  Like Gears of WarLike this!

– Want to improve your Twitter manners?  Here is a handy cheat-sheet to do just that.

– The Petoskey Batman is going to be spending more time with Alfred…

– Though I can’t fathom it, I guess there is still one guy that doesn’t get that female gamers are not just a fad.  Here is an Open Letter to that guy

– You may have seen this already, but Playstation wants you to know your games love you!

– Body suits may soon allow the paralyzed to walk.  Enough said.

– As an opponent of poor grammar, I can’t even tell you how happy this makes me.

– Curious about Warhammer 40K, but don’t have time to read all the books?  Here is everything you need to know in about a minute

– Sadly sold out, here is a beautiful Japanese print for all you Whovians

– Oddly, I didn’t even know a new Judge Dredd movie was in the works, never mind that there was trouble with the director.  Though it now appears those reports were exaggerated.

Fingerprint scanners in schools.  Not cool.

– In case, like me, you can’t get enough pictures of Mars

– Next time you are accosted by a balloon-sculpting clown, ask him to make this.  Don’t forget the pool in the library!

– When we go back to the moon, likely we’ll be mining.

– I’m not ashamed to say it: I love and fear this.

– And finally, you may think you love your cat(s).  But do you love it/them enough to give them the full Harry Potter experience?

That’s all for this week!  Share your own links below, if you dare!
