Links for a New World is a feature in which I share a bunch of links to things around the web that are relevant to my interests. It’s your weekend reading list! The name comes from a musical… for no particular reason.
- Who Said it: Chandler or Xander? – This Buzzfeed quiz is surprisingly difficult! I don’t think there are two shows I’ve seen more times than Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Friends, and yet, I only got 11/15 of these correct on my first try. How did you do?
- The Carleton – I actually saw this clip on the news at work and nearly lost it. I don’t watch Dancing with the Stars, but I do love The Fresh Prince of Bel Air! I watched this whole dance and literally screeched when Alfonso busted out that move.
- Banjo-Kazooie: Everything and the Kitchen Sink! – Grant Kirkhope made the excellent music for some of my favorite Nintendo 64 games including Goldeneye, Donkey Kong 64, and Banjo-Kazooie! Here, he’s offering every song from the latter two basically for free. You can name your price, download, and enjoy!
- Daily Dachshund – We will likely not get away with any lists of links that do not include something dachshund-related. My friend Julia sent me this link and I nearly lost it. This pup knows how to relax!
- 8-Bit Cinema’s Frozen – This is the first 8 Bit Cinema video I’ve seen, but I absolutely love the idea and will definitely be watching more. Basically, this is what Frozen would look like if it were an old school video game. The best part for me is the remixed music that pulls at the strings of my nostalgia!
- Taylor Swift’s “Riptide” cover – Oh, T Swift, I can’t help but love you! This cover of Vance Joy’s Riptide for BBC Radio 1 near brings tears to my eyes. I would love to hear Taylor sing in the genre more often.
- And finally, pumpkin! – Halloween is nearing, and if I had any outdoor space, I’d have a pumpkin bigger than that little baby in the bowl pictured. If you want to be super creative when carving a big, orange, jack-o-lantern, try one of these pokémon silhouette patterns! Seriously, someone try one. I want to see!
