I spent the past weekend at Emerald City Comicon, aka ECCC, aka EC3, aka Festival of Lines 2013. That’s right, my entry into March was full of Poison Ivys, Finn from Adventure Time, and approximately one thousand clones of The Doctor (
very few none of which were as dreamy, IMO).
Not so bad, if I do say so, myself.
There were lots of superhero photo ops.
The authors of the awesome webcomic, Cyanide & Happiness!
I had lots of fun and took lots of cool pictures of things like Klingons talking to Pomeranians and other things you never think about. I will link to more pics as soon as they’re on my personal blog!
In other news…
Fashion Week is still going on… somewhere else! Truth be told, I haven’t been paying much attention. My Tumblr feed is constantly full of detailed photos and ogle-worthy images of what’s happening on the Fall/Winter 2013 runways, and I am really liking a lot of what I see! I just saw pictures from Valentino this morning and they’re amazing.
I’ve been using Fetch.me to help me with my weekly (ha) Link Love posts! It collects all the links you share between Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook, compiling them all into one place! Of course there’s a social aspect – this is 2013! Your friends can follow you to keep up on what you’re… already… sharing to them? Whatever, it’s a cool tool!
This photo of Beyonce is insane.
This post on Tumblr perfectly expresses how I feel about dietary considerations for people on a budget! (Spoiler alert: Quality over quantity!)
I’m all behind on my favorite blogs because I was MIA all weekend! Fortunately, I’ve not been too lazy to watch videos…
Videos & Media
A great Seattle band, Hey Marseilles, is recording a new album and made this very cool video to promote it!
This is a parody of Macklemore’s Thrift Shop called “Pot Shop” – it sounds silly and is probably NSFW, but it is discusses a very relevant and important issue!
This episode of Very Mary Kate (a spoof by College Humor) makes fun of perfectly styled Instagram photos.
Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson are making an album together called The Uncluded! Eeee!
Clench thy quaking loins – Ryan Gosling’s band, Dead Man’s Bones, is not bad and he looks very good with a guitar. You’ve been warned.
