Friday Links (lots of videos editon)

B-8ljgjU0AASq8g.jpg-largeIt’s Friday! The first Friday in March. Already! I should be more excited, but I’ve been sick all week and while I’m hopeful that the antibiotics will get rid of this cough sometime soon, I’m just too tired to be enthusiastic about anything.

Anyway, here is a collection of news and other things that I ran across over the course of the week which struck me as worthy of being shared:

Totally normal!

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I publish 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 in Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
