I Heart: The Wheaton's Law Edition

Portal 2 advises how not to be a D-bag during co-play:

This geek girl's awesome Etsy store takes computer parts and makes them into amazing jewelry.  Follow her @CloneHardware - she gives updates about new merchandise.

Roger Hargreaves -
The man who wrote the popular Mr. Men and Little Miss series would have been 76 yesterday.  Hargreaves died in 1988 due to stroke complications.  His son, Adam, took over writing the series after his death.

My favorite of the Little Miss series

Something we should all remember.

The trailer for Coleridge Cook's new take on Franz Kafka's "Metamorphosis":

Fango's May issue -
I am utterly powerless to resist the lure of a Thing/John Carpenter cover.

Fangoria, May 2011 (found here)

In honor of Star Wars Day (May 4th), I give you these adorable crocheted Star Wars figures!  (Yet another reason that I wish I was crafty.)

Mother's Day may be over, but it's not too early to start planning for next year.  May I suggest this hilarious and appropriate card?

Moral of the story: Math geek girls rule.

Restropect Dry Goods in Monument, CO - This awesome store has everything from classic monster movie collectibles to gorgeous Bettie Page clothing.  If you live in Colorado and love retro, this shop is definitely worth the trip!  Follow them on Twitter (@RetrospectDG) and/or "like" them on Facebook to get news about new merch and deals.

Neil Gaiman's response to Minnesota Representative Matt Dean's name-calling - If you follow Gaiman on Twitter (@neilhimself) or read his blog, you know about the surprising controversy he has caused in Minnesota's legislature.  When interviewed about cutting "legacy" funds that go to promote arts and culture in the state, Dean lashed out at Gaiman for being paid a $40,000 speaker's fee.  He said he "hate[d]" the author, called him a "pencil-necked weasel", and accused him of stealing the money from Minnesota tax payers.  Gaiman took the diatribe in stride and, way back in May of 2010, had even taken the extra step of explaining the fee and what was done with it.  Dean gamely apologized for calling the author a "pencil-necked weasel", but said nothing of the theft accusation.  I applaud Mr. Gaiman for his mature, level-headed response.  You, sir, are a better person than I.  #TeamGaiman
