Somehow this Weekly End is full of geekery. Starting with wacky personal experiments and winding through tech, comedy-sci-fi, and fantasy. I’m not sure how it happened, really. But how does anything happen? In the immortal words of employee-of-the-week-Lucas, “Who knows where thoughts come from? They just appear… mmmhmmmm.”
So I’ll take no offense if these selections are slightly not-your-fave. That probably just means you’re cooler than me.
Geekery numero uno: I washed my hair with honey yesterday, if you call that washing. I needed something different than last week’s baking soda results, and I ended up with honey. It’s still too early for a full report.
We also started a whole30 this week, which will likely become a whole20 or whole15 sooner than I’d like. There’s too much going on this month for me to stress over strict food-ing, but I was getting the feel-fats and slog-brains and decided it was time to make an adjustment. I’m four days in and already sooooo happy I decided to go for it. Of course, I’m also in sugar withdrawal. For me that means by 8pm I’m so tired/exhausted I can barely pull the sheets back on the bed. Also? Headaches like whoa.
In other news, we have only 43 days left on Tatooine!
Onward to geeky web-finds!
There were two (very) big Star Wars announcements this week regarding the new cast and the future plot. This New Yorker article has information on both, and a photo I can’t stop looking at.
This Kickstarter for a 3D-printing pen. Must. Have.
A (quite long) “history” of MST3K from Wired. If you’re not sure what MST3K is, don’t click through. For the rest of you, treasures await. I now understand why there are still jokes I don’t get. Also, I love it when disagreeable people are called trolls.
And this, Harry Potter VS Star Wars, an amateur video in the most charming of ways, but with kind of amazing special effects. There’s also a little Middle Earth in there if you listen closely. (If you’re reading this on RSS or email, click through to see the video.)
Have any geeky fun? Send it my way. And have a great weekend!
