Now that the “Big Game” is behind us, and Philly fans continue to rejoice (hopefully peacefully), we move on to news for the week. Well, not so much news, as articles and things I found interesting in the past week.
- Funny or Die has a YouTube series entitled, “Zack Morris is Trash” – and it’s so true. Watch as you realize just how horrible a person Zack Morris from Saved by the Bell truly is.
- Sanrio’s lovable hard working, metal loving red panda Aggretsuko is coming to Netflix with a brand new anime series. Otaquest has the newest trailer. I am so looking forward to this!
- NBC Olympics posted a video where a sequence from figure skater Evgenia Medvedeva (and big Yuri!!! on Ice) fan was turned into animated! It looks great and…I want more of this from current figure skaters.
- A Mario animated movie is coming…from Illumination. Yes, the people who created Despicable Me. I’ll be honest – I’m interested!
- Rob Sheridan tells us the story about his role in the spread of the “Dancing Baby” meme in the mid-90s.
- I am looking for opinions on whether or not to bring back an old feature, Friday Fight. Check out the poll and also check out the old articles. Read them over. Soak up their storylines about random fictional characters duking it out. Also, vote in their polls too!
- As a reminder – Pokemon Sun/Moon or UltraSun/Moon players can get Dialga or Palkia at GameStop this month. Check it out!
- Peter Fobian wrote a great article about the sweetness & lightning anime and manga with a side-by-side comparison. First, check the article. Then, read the manga/watch the anime (or both).
This week, I have two fun Twitter recommendations. You should absolutely follow them both!
- Link Finding Things – This is a strange account where a bot makes Link find random things. Sometimes it replies to you if you follow it with a thing semi-related to your tweet. It’s weird, but it’s fun.
- Mommy Owl – Mommy Owl is a writing and literature Professor. She also serves as a social media manager for a number of funny parenting related groups. She’s funny, clever, and worth a follow!
Music for the week is “Gashina” by Sunmi. It’s catchy and the video seems to tell a story. Check it out!
