Things We Saw Today
To arms, chefs! Wield those knives fearlessly! (via That’s Nerdalicious.)
- Alyssa Rosenburg succinctly explains why we should stop equating gender performance and sexuality using Pixar’s Brave an example. (via Think Progress.)
- WoW Insider laments the lack of well-written, believable female World of Warcraft characters that aren’t wholly defined by their gender. (via WoW Insider.)
Yes, that is the entire Hobbit cast joining Ian McKellen during his one man show to raise money for a church! (via Digital Spy.)
- Here’s a roundup of every item that was inside the time capsule that Nickelodeon buried in 1992. I wonder if that Game Boy still works? (via Mental Floss.)
- Heads up: Facebook changed everyone’s email to @Facebook.com. Lifehacker explains how to fix it.
- 1UP has a roundup of 6 female video game characters that “do it right.” If by “do it right” they mean weren’t poorly conceived and written to appeal to gamers wanting fanservice only, then this is a pretty good list, though I’m not entirely convinced by the inclusion of Bayonetta.
How excited are you about Hotel Transylvania? Here’s the extended trailer and an interview with director Genndy Tartakovsky. (via Bleeding Cool.)
- The Jane Dough has a roundup of 4 ridiculous and/or innocuous things the Girl Scouts have been accused of. Whether or not these accusations are true may be debatable (though probably not) but the real question is: Where are those Girl Scout cookie-inspired candy bars and where can I buy them?
