LinksKristina PinoComment

[Another week gone by... and just like that, it's November! And soon, it'll be Christmas... ahhh~]

On Books:

Very pleased to know that one of my favorite book series, A Series of Unfortunate Events, is going to Netflix.

Waistcoats & Weaponry, the third book in the Finishing School series by Gail Carriger has just been released! I'll be listening to it on audio. Check if the book tour is going your way.

On Travel:

Luis Simoes loves to travel, but instead of taking pictures, he draws what he sees. Amazing. You can also follow his work and travels on Instagram.

If you're visiting Miami any time soon (or currently live there and are looking for something fresh to do), here are some free or cheap things to do.


New Minions trailer!

Adorable 9-year old girl loves to dress up as Alice and other characters.

An 18-year old lady was elected as a lawmaker in West Virginia. I'm impressed!

Stuff I wrote and did:

Over at Panels: Comics Fetish Volume 6 - it was my turn to suggest ways for readers to part with their money this week.

I vlogged!

[Have a great weekend!]

[Welcome to another Friday Things link dump! Now that I'm all settled in on the new blog, these should be back to normal. Enjoy~]

On Disney:

Beautiful travel posters inspired by Disney locations.

Super cute USB chargers that look like Disney characters dove into the outlet (they're butts!). I'd like one of each, please.

First trailer for Pixar's Inside Out! Yay!

On Books:

"I think kids are really smart. And I think they know the difference between fiction violence and real violence." and other gems of wisdom about writing for kids by R.L. Stine.

UDON Entertainment recently released another beautiful artbook featuring Hatsune Miku. I own their Kagamine book, and the quality is absolutely fantastic. See their site for an excerpt of the new release and buy links.


(via Geekologie) Interesting (definitely attention-grabbing) PSA about getting check-ups for breast cancer. Hidden bra camera.

Excellent post by Emily Gould: "Why We Need to Fight Online Trolls, Not Just Ignore Them."

Panels, a site/community for all sorts of comics fans, just launched this week! Do check it out. Also, I have a post up there already: Art Roundup: Spotlight on Zatanna.

Classic Game Controller Silicone Mold

You can buy these silicone mold controllers from Think Geek - they're great for candy- or ice- or cake-making, and cost just US$9.99 for a set of six (two of each of the three above designs). Click on the image to get to the listing.

Whoa... new Homestar Runner! Fisheye Lens.

[See ya next weekend!]
