Procrastination Pro-Tips: PBS Icons, Swimmers Galore and More

Happy Friday, boys and girls!  I’m back from that time I was on vacation/didn’t actually get to be on vacation.  That sounds confusing.  It was!  It’s been a long week.  So I have lots of links for you today.  Enjoy!

Book Related Things

What does your favorite YA series say about you?  You’ll have to play for me, because I can’t for the life of me figure out my favorite series.  (Thanks Danielle!)

Not sure what to read?  The Readventurer put an amazing hand drawn flowchart that should help you get your answer.  (Thanks Angela!)

Because we all need to think about Harry Potter at least twice daily, here are some Hogwarts dresses and the SCIENCE behind the wizarding gene.

Apparently Molly Ringwald wrote a novel and (horror of horrors) it is NOT young adult.

Sorry Baby Boomers, but Generation Y (those born 1979-1989) has dethroned you as as population who buys the most books.  Go team!

Interested in manga but aren’t sure where to start?  Wary of cartoon boobs?  Well, The Mary Sue has put together a helpful guide for the ladies!

The next time you think about using the internet to help you cheat on your homework, watch out!  The author may be reading.

TV Related Things

So PBS has been putting together these “Icons Remixed” videos on youtube.  The latest is Julia Child.  But Bob Ross and Mister Rogers have received the treatment as well.  Bless you, PBS.

Have you seen the new trailer for season 3 of Downton Abbey?  I have been avoiding it because someone (certainly not me) hasn’t watched the Christmas Special yet.

Movies Related Things

GUYS!  The trailer for the Red Dawn remake is finally here!  It's got the hot Hemsworth!  And Peeta Square Head!  And Tyra from FNL!

Ever wonder what Star Wars would have looked like as an 80s high school movie?  Wonder no longer.

Olympics Related Things

The Olympics are over and I am suffering through some serious withdrawal.  With may have something to do with the fact that both Erin and I had convinced ourselves that the Olympics last three weeks (vice two).  But even with the Olympics over, there is still quite a bit of Olympics goodies I can share with you.

Did you know there is Olympics Swimming FANFIC?  Well now you do!  You’re welcome!  Or sorry.  Depending.  Also, what would happen if other Olympics sports were photographed like beach volleyball?  (Thanks Sue!)

And speaking of swimmers, is Nathan Adrian really Finnick Odair?  (Thanks Cait!)  But don’t go petitioning for Nathan to be in The Hunger Games movie.  Because swimmers can’t act.  Exhibit A:

But seriously Ryan Lochte, stop right now.  Just stop.  Sir Patrick Stewart?  Proceed!

Miscellaneous Things

If you’re a nerd who loves Hoarders style shows, you will love Syfy’s new Collection Intervention.  Less bags of poo, and way more cool stuff!

For those of you who still like sending old school mail, facebook may introduce a feature that lets you send postcards of facebook photos to friends and family.  Yes, please!

And I think I’m going to start ending these posts with whatever I consider to be the best animal video that I’ve seen that week.  That this week’s is definitely Parkour Dog!

Anything neat you read or watched this week?  Share it with us in the comments!
