This Week Online - April 14, 2014

Hola all - please enjoy some amusements I found online in the past week!

Lastly, you know I'm a big fan of Tabletop, the Geek & Sundry web show hosted by Wil Wheaton on YouTube. They've decided to crowdsource the third season of the show over on Indiegogo. Check out the campaign and give if you can. If he can reach $1m, we will get a third season of Tabletop with 20 episodes AND a new spin-off show all about roleplaying games. THAT is something I really want to see!

Enjoy your week!

Ok, to be honest, it's more like the last couple of weeks online. Getting back into the swing of things here. Hope you enjoy these things I found!

This Week Online - Sept 23, 2013

Hola folks - This week had wide ranging things of interest. I hope you enjoy!

  • Do you eat meat? Are you a vegetarian? Do you think about the impact of what you eat and how you eat on your health, your community, or the planet? This is a well-written and well thought out article on what it means to be a conscious carnivore.
  • Two key members of House Lannister from Game of Thrones appeared on Sesame Street recently. Enjoy Peter Dinklage (singing!) and Lena Headey!
  • Did you back Neal Stephenson's videogame kickstarter? It was all about creating a realistic motion capture sword fighting game. I'm a huge kickstarter participant and I remember looking at this. I thought to myself, I've been mad at Stephenson since he stopped writing good books, so I'm not going to back this project. Petty, really. Well, now I'm glad I didn't back it. Definitely a lesson in the pitfalls of kickstarter investing and in thinking about where you decide to put your money.
  • Have you upgraded to iOS7? Do you know about the privacy settings that you need to enable STAT?
  • Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are awesome. And their friendship is a thing to envy. Truly, these two are way up on my list of people I'd invite to a dinner party.

Enjoy these tidbits. I'll be back tomorrow with a review of Riddick!
