Jabba eyes... Are watching you... They see your Twi'leks dance...
I'm very excited to announce the addition of my friend Francene to Geektress. She's a mom to two adorable kids who may or may not actually be anthropomorphic Cabbage Patch Dolls, lives in the Dallas Texas area, and (much to Dania's delight) is "a fellow Whovian." When she's not posting at FilmDrunk or the Sharon Stone Twitter, she's finding hilarious things to put on her Tumblr. So we thought we'd ask her if she wants to be our official Link Roundup Geektress. She said yes! A thousand times yes!
So, when I get a chance to actually teach her how to use the site, she'll be posting this herself. Until then, she found the funny and I'm regurgitating it here.
Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal had a particularly funny Batman comic this week. If you like SMBC, you'll be happy to know that soon a collection of their comics will be published, with proceeds going towards Donors Choose. That's all the profits from the book going to Donors Choose, which is really cool.
When you're done reading SMBC comics, skip over to Good Night, Dune a webcomic slash children's book parody by Julia Yu.
If you're in a crafting mood, Heather at Dollar Store Crafts did her own take on Lasse Klein's conceptual Alien Abduction Lamp, using only $5 or less of materials. The results are pretty impressive considering it was all dollar store finds and leftover paint.
If you're in the Prospect Heights area of Brooklyn, and you like Steampunk, Dr. Who, and alcohol, you should definitely check out The Way Station. It's at 683 Washington Ave., is open from 4pm til 2am, and the bathroom is shaped like the Tardis. You read that correctly. (You can check out some of the drink specials at the link; we of course advocate the use of Maker's Mark in the house specialties.)
You've probably all seen it by now, but you don't come to this blog for current news, so here it is again: Comics Alliance remixed Charlie Sheen quotes with superheroes. If you've reached Sheen fatigue already, I understand. That said, I still love the Superman one.
Finally, a matter next to my own heart: Zoidberg. Taken alone he can be a pretty obnoxious character, but that doesn't mean I love him any less. And, apparently, if you decide to just go around impersonating him in North Carolina, you gotta watch out for Zoidberg haters. A 22-year-old was scuttling around, "woob-woob-woob"ing, and some dude punched him in the face for it. To take a quote out of context from another show, "You can't fuck the future, sir. The future fucks you." (Hugo Jarry, Deadwood.)
