Friday Things: 10/26 - Saturday morning Jim Cummings, milky pinups, and Earthsick jellyfish

[Whoops, looks like I completely missed last week's link dump! I wasn't feeling too productive after my trip to Disney, alas. I had a blast, by the way~

This week we had a near-tyhpoon to deal with, but it totally missed us in the end. There was also a pretty solid quake off the coast this morning, about a 6.8, and nothing serious. What was weird about it was how it lasted a long time. Earthquakes are usually just momentary rumbles, but this one went on and on and on. Very strange! But we're all good, here.

My intro is a little bit long today, and I've got plenty of links to share since I missed this last week, so you'll have to click the jump if you're viewing from the front page. If not, then look right below!]

Literary links:

Awesome literary tees for the book geek.

DarkHorse is selling Game of Thrones lunchboxes! (GoT | Iron Throne)

New web series: Geek's Guide to Dating. Very cute.

I reviewed an awesome comic published by Perfect Square (a VIZ Media imprint) titled Hello Kitty: Here We Go! It's the first in a new series of Hello Kitty comics, and the second one, Hello Kitty: Delicious! is already announced and dated.

 

 

On YouTube: 

Cool cover of Jai Ho by Peter Hollens and Alaa Wardi.

Some sweet make-up tutorials, including a bunch of Disney characters.

Mickey Mouse can talk to guests now - so cool. 

Jim Cummings delights with his voice work as Pooh Bear while reading some of Darth Vader's lines from Star Wars. Darkwing Duck makes a cameo.

I vlogged! I'm not sure how regular they'll be, but I'd like to try to at least post something on my YouTube channel once a week, so whenever I don't have a review or some concentrated topic, I'll just chat about what I'm doing or what might be happening in Japan at the time. The first vlog was a bit about the last typhoon, my hair cut, and other things. This week's vlog is about eReaders

 

 

On Photography:

Very cool photography: "Milky Pinups." Way more effective ways to get some people to drink milk than the Got Milk? mustache shots, I think.

Last week's update on my photo blog was Japan's cherry blossoms. This week's was about my visit to a cat cafe.

Other:

We're seeing now that jellyfish born in space are having an awful time back on Earth. It doesn't bode well for babies born in space.

Henry Selick is working on a live action fairy tale movie!

Awesome food art one mom makes for her daughters. I love this~
