One thing that has often been said about me is that, well, I’m a bit of a fangirl. A crazy theme-song-singing, cry-when-you-meet-Neil-Gaiman, Edward-Scissorhands-wearing limited-edition-box-set-collecting fangirl… (and hence difficult to buy Christmas presents for. Seriously, spent the weekend getting scolded for exactly this!)
So, this week’s links all have a bit of a pop-culture fangirl theme running through them. Actually, kind of more like a wave crashing over them… ah well, immerse yourself!
1) I was rewatching the first season of The Muppet Show last week, and wondering just how on earth the human brain could come up with some of those characters. Take a nostalgic look at a gallery of the best with the 8 Most Underrated Muppets list… I used to have nightmares about Uncle Deadly when I was a kid!
2) Continuing the list theme: November was the 20th anniversary of the release of the first Sandman graphic novel-slash-comic. io9 gives us a list of 5 Ways that Sandman Changed the World. (Yeah, I know – they managed to limit it just to five?) Worth a read JUST for the teasers in the comments about possible new Gaiman projects!
3) Finally, this one’s a special gift for a few regular readers, and anyone else who’s been missing Joss Whedon’s work lately. If you like this first taste of “Dr Horrible’s Singalong Blog” let me know, I’ll pop the links for the other bits in next week…
(with love from the fangirl puddle on the floor, Liberrydwarf!)
