Things We Saw Today

Girls just wanna have fun — and fight crime. (At Fashionably Geek)

Here is an easy way to catch up on the last six years of Doctor Who. Can you imagine a time when we didn’t have infographics? Would you even want to? (At Blastr)

I thought to myself “Haha, it’d be really funny if somebody followed some kid and his parents into a dark alley and then pretended to mug them after that show,” which I think means that I am a horrible person. (At DC Women Kicking Ass)

We want you to check out all the things we see every day, but this item especially: After several young people committed suicide after being bullied last fall, comic writers Charles “Zan” Christensen and Mark Brill were inspired to write a comic about a bullied teen who becomes his own hero. His Kickstarter campaign for The Power Within — which has surpassed its $3,000 goal by nearly $1,000 — has attracted support from some very recognizable people in the comics industry, including Gail Simone. The money will go towards printing copies of the final product, so definitely check out their page!

Motionographer has an interview with one of the creative talents behind the Game of Thrones opening title sequence:

I had a conversation two years ago with Carolyn Strauss, who we’ve done several main titles with at HBO. David Benioff and Dan Weiss had written a title sequence for their pilot in which a raven flies from King’s Landing to Winterfell. Carolyn identified the need for a legend–or master map–for the series. We produced some sketches for the raven concept and soon thereafter created moving map elements for their pilot. They used these map shots every time the show cut from place to place. This helped explain the geography of the world, but was somewhat disruptive to the narrative. So when the series was picked up, we put all that information into the title sequence.We knew that we would need to create everything in the computer, but wanted to make something that looked and acted real. Using maps drawn by George RR Martin as our foundation, we had the rare opportunity to create a world practically from scratch…so we would need to create a tremendous amount of detail as well. Fortunately, we had an amazing team of artists to do this.

So, are you getting ready for bikini season? Styleite has discovered that our classic and “daring” two-piece bathing has connections to …wait for it … nuclear warfare.
