The Tió de Nadal: a pooping Christmas log.

It’s time to share a few interesting links I have found throughout the week. Some of these I mention on Twitter, if you’re not already following me there, please do! Have a link I should feature? Let me know!

The Guardian rounds up the best literary fights of this year. From Jonathan Franzen to Bret Easton Ellis.

What To Do BEFORE You Reinvent Yourself In 2014
Lauren Sapala offers some simple advice on how to set yourself up for the approaching new year. Good stuff.

Want to give your antagonists a bit more edge? Becca Puglisi shares some good advice on how to create a moral villain.


Fancy Lad’s Old Timey Book Faces
Fun redesign of classic book covers. My favorite’s probably Moby Dick. So good.

One Room Transformed Into 14 Surreal Fantasy Landscapes
Foregoing photoshop Korean artist Jee Young Lee creates stunning photographs in her tiny studio. It’s beautiful stuff.


Matt Gemmell on Gamers
I love games, but lately there has been some concerning behavior coming from a repulsive vocal minority regarding the treatment of women. Matt Gemmell writes a sharply written article about how some gamers treat women in their industry. I couldn’t agree with him more. It’s time for some gamers to grow up.

Tió de Nadal or the Christmas Log
Move over Krampus, this log with a face that you beat with sticks until it poops treats might be my new favorite weird Christmas tradition.

Lovecraft Story of the Week:

It’s very short and pretty cheesy but fitting for the season I suppose.

      I don’t know where the old man .gif is from. I tried a few Google images searches and it wasn’t very helpful. Then I tried a search of the old fella’s face and Google told me it was 23rd U.S. President Benjamin Harrison which I don’t believe is correct.
