LinksKristina PinoComment

[Whoa, actually on time? Why, yes. It's because my weekend is pretty much booked, and I had the presence of mind to write this up a day early. Enjoy!]

On Disney:

Some cute Disney-themed Valentine's Day cards if you're into printing and making your own.

A few screenshots of the upcoming Frozen short, Frozen Fever.

On Books and Comics:

If you're passionate about comics and interested in writing about them, consider applying to PANELS!

If you're the type who likes to "read it before ya see it," here are three books for upcoming adaptations.

The next Hello Kitty comic has just been released! It's called Hello Kitty: It's About Time. Oh yes, I'll be grabbing this.

Stuff I Wrote:

On Panels: Art Roundup: Spotlight on Quackerjack.

Other:

Michelle Phan wrote up some tips on handling homesickness. She nailed it with keeping busy as well as keeping in touch. I Skype with folks back in the US all the time, and I try not to have too much idle time in general.

A glance at what some school lunches around the world look like compared with the US. If you read my blog regularly, you know what Japanese school lunches look like, but have a look at others like Greece and Spain!

A publication sent out a call for science writers, and dude was rejected because he isn't a science writer. His response to the lady who runs the site is appalling.

Awesome dad gets tattoos of his son's doodles.

A+, solid parody.

[See ya next week!]

[Welcome to another week of... winter! And links! And stuff! Yeah, I know, I'm late. Here they are!]

On Movies:

Have another look at Cinderella. The bells are grating, but it looks pretty cool overall:

In case you're curious about what's canon and not in the Star Wars universe, and a reminder that even when things are taken off the canon, they still exist and you can still love them.

Over on Star Wars (dot com): 7 Things You Might Not Know About the Mos Eisley Cantina.

From/On Japan:

As it turns out, Tokyo is the safest city in the world. Osaka is in the top 5 along with it, and NYC is the only US city on the list.

Waaay too expensive, but these fruit-shaped note pads look so great.

Great little guide by my pal Lauren Orsini on writing anime reviews.

Stuff I Wrote:

At Panels: Comics Fetish: Volume 16 (weekly comics merch column)

At Panels: Art Roundup: Spotlight on Quackerjack (weekly art column)

Other:

Some tips for getting great photos in/of snow or when it's snowing, whether with a regular camera or a phone.

This might be my favorite Let It Go parody yet:

[Have a wonderful week!]

[It's getting cooooolder!]

On Blogging:

Are you a blogger? There's always room to learn more things. Here are 11 tips from The Nerdy Girlie.

Also on the subject of blogging: how to protect your privacy.

On Comics:

People interviewed the awesome Amanda Conner. I feel like they were trying to bait her to go in a certain direction the way some questions were framed, but she gracefully brushed it all off. All positivity, all confidence. Love her~

Ridiculously excited we're getting more Darkwing Duck comics, and even more excited that James Silvani and Aaron Sparrow are going to continue working on it.

New Edward Scissorhands comic!

Stuff I wrote this past week:

I take turns with a co-contributor on Panels for our weekly column Comics Fetish, in which we feature comics-related merch you can totally buy. This week was my turn.

Also on Panels, I wrote about Batman, and made a call for book recommendations.

On Book Riot, I wrote about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando.

And finally, on Quirk Books, I rounded up some of my favorite Hello Kitty-related recipes/tutorials from YouTube.

Other:

Excited for Disney's upcoming Moana in 2016!

[Have a great week!]
