[Actually on time for once! This happened because my browser started going nuts when I opened too many tabs yesterday, and instead of bookmarking them I dumped them here. Yay!]

On Books:

Wil Wheaton created this opening theme for Game of Thrones based on the The Brady Bunch format, and it's fantastic. (via C|Net) (warning: some language)

Very cool: travel to the various locations Game of Thrones is shot. 

Mindy Kaling is going to write a book of essays titled Why Not Me? and I'm pretty excited.

EpicReads highlighted some literary fandoms that produce some great fanart. I'd take it further and include the likes of Eleanor & Park, Alice in Wonderland, and more, but yeah - fandom can be awesome sometimes.

On Disney:

Speaking of Alice in Wonderland, this is a beautiful shot of the Mad Tea Party ride at Disneyland Resort.

Jafar, Evil Queen, Maleficent, and Cruella de Vil's children have been revealed for the upcoming Descendants. Their costumes are pretty awesome.

Healthful food choices at the Magic Kingdom park.




The correct way to cut cake, according to math.

Another entry in the How to be Awesome column on Quirk Books by another awesome blogger on the team: How to be Awesome While Being Overly Enthusiastic About Other People's Dogs. I love this, and it isn't just because the author mentioned my dog's breed once at the end.  

Photographer Benjamin Von Wong did an underwater photo shoot for the art of it, not to sell clothes, and teamed up with a group of people who were dedicated to get the most amazing results, and... it's just magical. (via Neatorama) Read more about the shoot and what went towards it here.

This week's dose of SCIENCE is all about ice cream.

[Have a great weekend!]
