Things We Saw Today: A Captain Picard Quilt


As long as you have this quilt by Candy Coated Quilts you can say you’re sleeping with Sir Patrick Stewart and it will only kind of be a lie. (Nerd Approved)

  • Though official announcements aren’t until next week, Democratic insiders told the AP that Texas State Senator Wendy Davis, she of the ten hour abortion filibuster, plans to run for Governor of Texas. We’ll have to wait and see if that actually happens, of course. But it’d be great if it does. (The Frisky)
  • A new The Last of Us character will be introduced as part of an upcoming DLC. See what other expansions are in the works at Game Informer.
  • Valve has unveiled a new Steam PC controller that’s part of its wider goal of bringing “the Steam experience, in its entirety, into the living room.” Visit Joystiq for a look at the new touch screen-heavy device.

Mondo’s new The Little Mermaid poster is by Tom Whalen, or Tom Whalen, because “under the sea”… oh, fine! Don’t appreciate my stupid puns. (Collider)

  • Londoners: You will be able to vote for Eddie Izzard to be your mayor. The comedian/actor/all around wonderful person has confirmed that he’s running in 2020. (Mirror)
  • To celebrate Banned Books Week, ending tomorrow, Tor.com’s Alex Brown has written a great personal essay on how one banned book in particular—Douglas AdamsThe Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy—changed her life.

Redditor That Nordic Guy, who did face morphs of the original Star Trek actors and their reboot counterparts, has done the same with Magneto (above) and Professor X. Feast your eyes on Sir James McAstewart at ComicBookMovie.

    I would like to note that Wendy Davis–unlike a recent filibusterer who got WAY more attention for what was way more of a publicity stunt than an actual attempt at democracy–was required to stay precisely on topic for the entirety of her ordeal. Unlike someone. Someone who doesn’t understand the message of “Green Eggs and Ham.”

    Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz filibustered because he is opposed to Obamacare and didn’t want it funded at any cost. He filibustered for 21 hours, but talked about whatever he felt like…including “Green Eggs and Ham,” which he “jokingly” said was about how nobody actually liked green eggs being forced down their throats by the government. And his filibuster was doomed from the beginning, whereas Davis actually had a chance for success but was needled at every turn by her rivals, who objected to every little thing. Ultimately she was thrown out of her filibuster because she talked about another, related, bill, rather than just the one before her.

  • Ellie

    And she did end up semi-succeeding, since she got the bill pushed into a special session. The republicans certainly freaked the hell out, given that they falsified records to say that the vote took place just before midnight, when if actually occurred after midnight.
    (Of course people helpfully ignored that, but, you know. Moral victories)
