Friday Links! (for someone’s birthday)

It’s a beautiful Friday which happens to be Zorkfox’s birthday. It is entirely appropriate that a man with such a large heart celebrates his natal day on February 14.

Here’s a collection of news and other things that struck me as worthy of being shared:

Possible woolly mammoth tusk unearthed in Seattle.

My Funny Valentine: Awkward photos show nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like tossing chickens, topless archers and photobombing llamas.

Evolution coming undone in Galapagos: human impacts on Darwin’s finches.

Family vow to solve mystery of war-torn love affair after finding besotted teenager’s letters to her WWII soldier sweetheart.

New fossil bed found by scientists hailed as ‘motherlode’.

V-Day Blues? Here Are Seven NON-Romantic Relationships You’ll Love.

5 Cute Couples Share Their Love Stories.

The least scathing review I found of the remake of Robocop began, “It wasn’t bad enough to make me angry.” Another review recommended that instead of spending money to go see the blockbuster-budget remake, to instead watch this crowd-sourced Robocop remake for free: Our Robocop Remake. “As big fans of the original RoboCop, and as filmmakers and film fans admittedly rolling our eyes at the Hollywood remake machine, we’ve elected to do this remake thing our own way. Our RoboCop Remake premiered in Los Angeles on January 26th and New York on February 5th. On February 6th, it was released online. Because if anyone is going to ruin RoboCop, it’s us.”

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. For more than 20 years I edited and published an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
