What I’ve been linking, loving and lomogramming this week.
- Jen brought Freddos! All these apparently had popping candy in them, but I couldn’t get them to pop. Sad face.
- Tom does his best impression of a trilby wearing douchebag. The trilby is mine, bought at Glastonbury a few years ago. Also, he’d want me to point his Game of Thrones/Star Wars t-shirt, because he’s crazy about it. If you can’t really tell, it’s Darth Vader on the Iron Throne.
- I spotted this horse-drawn carriage on my lunch-break on Tuesday. They do tours around Bath in this. Cute, huh?
My lovely ex-flatmate, Jen, came to visit me at the weekend, and we had a day filled with cake and exploring. Jen’s about to head off to Canada, where she’ll be working at a ski resort. She’s actually planning on starting a blog while she’s over there, so I’ll share that with you guys when it’s up and running.
Tom came down on Sunday night, rather last minute, which was lovely, although he has left his cold here with me, which sucks. He’s had his first meeting with the new internship, and is already loving it, and getting loads of work done. For those of who you don’t know, Tom’s a Character Artist, and he’s just started an internship with The Serious Games Institute.
So, where have I been around the internet? Well, you may remember that last week, I linked to an article about the apparent scene in Grand Theft Auto V. This week, I read this article about the strip clubs in the world of GTA. It’s creepy as hell, basically. If you pop into one of the strip clubs, you can play a mini game where you try to grope the stripper without security catching you. Rockstar, I say again, what the HELL? Yes, please, let’s make a fun mini game about furtively groping women. If you win the game, you get to have sex with the stripper. Nothing damaging there. Nope. So…yeah…the last two Friday round ups have brought me to the conclusion that Rockstar fully encourage misogyny, harassment and sexual assault. Way to go.
Aaaaaanyway, on a more awesome note, Lynda Carter talked about why she thinks it’s difficult to get a Wonder Woman movie right. After you’ve read that, everyone should look at these comics that sum up how depression feels. They’ve got some great messages, and really hit the nail on the head, I think.
