LinksKristina PinoComment

[Ah, hey! I kind of suck, because last week I was too busy playing crossword puzzles to read more books and even get this Friday Things column up. Don't worry, though... because it's back! Check out all the links for this week below]

On Travel:

Disney/Pixar's Brave will be coming out in theaters soon (June 22), and Scotland is thinking it'll be great for their tourism. There are even a couple of group trips planned already and they sound like a rad deal.

Summer's here! Check out CNN Travel's picks for best affordable beach resorts.

On Video Games:

Ron Gilbert spills on upcoming Cave (and much more) over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun. Check it out and get excited. (Part 1 | Part 2)

The Indie Game Music Bundle is out, and you've got three more days from the time of writing to purchase it! It a pay-what-you-want kind of deal, but you get tons of music if you drop $10 or more.

Wreck-It Ralph looks pretty awesome. You know, like the right kind of video game movie.


This is a great list of handy tips to help you survive living out on your own.

The last time, I shared a video of Neil Gaiman's speech at UArts. Since then, an artist has produced a webcomic strip inspired by a portion of that speech. It's awesome. You should take a look.

I had seen this great artwork in the past of all of the Doctor's companions, but I didn't know who the artist was until she made some waves recently with her Disney Princess-inspired art based on the idea that they're room mates. It's called Pocket Princesses by Amy Mebberson. For more, check out her archive.

[And with that, I think I'm through with linking stuff for this week. Enjoy, and see you next time!]
