Things of note for the week ending March 7th, 2014.
1. Flash. Gordon.
This original poster made me smile a lot when I saw it. Related fact: about ten years ago I received Flash Gordon on DVD on the exact same day that I happened to meet Brian Blessed. Yes, he signed it. Yes, it is a treasured possession. And yes, he was awesome.
2. Creating Your Habit Environment
Old habits are hard to break. Zen Habits talks about how your environment contributes to that difficulty and suggests ways to help make that change. There are a bunch of quotes I could nab from it, but it really is just worth reading the whole thing.
3. Batman: Arkham Knight
The trailer for the third official* Arkham game dropped earlier this week and it looks awesome. Gamer or not, the work and animation in this video is outstanding. So good in fact that I’d be quite happy to watch a short film in this format.
Watch this one in full screen –
4. A tall tale about The Players Club, NY
This post, entitled ‘The Players Club, David Carradine, And The Guy From Revenge of the Nerds: The Mystery of the Broken Window’, not only seeks out the truth behind a legendary story about the people and things listed, but also gives a fairly decent guided tour of the Players Club on the way.
A fairly decent piece of random reading for your Friday and definitely worth a look.
5. Finders Keepers
I adore this.
’til next week…
