Links For A New World [08]

snow and shells

Well, it’s been a solid 2 months since I’ve gathered links for you.  February and March were tough here in Boston, alright?

But anyway, links!

  • Majora’s Mask | This is my favorite Legend of Zelda game and one of my favorite games ever.  I didn’t put up enough fanfare about the 3DS release on this blog and I’ve literally been saving this fantastic article since it came out.  Play this game, you guys.  Especially since you’ll be waiting a while for a new one…
  • The Office | It’s been 10 years since the American version of The Office premiered.  Angela Kinsey did an awesome instagram takeover in celebration and I had so many emotions.  I love this show and this history of the Diversity Day episode really highlights what made it special.
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer | You must know by now that BtVS is my number one.  My cousin Nick sent me this article entitled Every Argument about Buffy on the Internet from 1998 until Now and I just loved it.  Had to share!
  • Narragansett | I have a lot to say about Rhode Island neighbor of mine– mostly, that I miss it horribly through all this Boston snow!  I voted for Narragansett in Coastal Living’s Happiest Seaside Town contest and you can too!
  • ‘Gansett | Narragansett beer is also on my mind lately.  Summer brews and the delicious Del’s Lemonade Shandy are hitting shelves soon to help us remember that spring is here and summer is around the corner!
  • Game of Thrones | I’m getting so pumped for April TV.  We’ve waited so long for Mad Men, Orphan Black, and Game of Thrones!  Watch the lovely Maisie Williams talk about watching the show with her family and Arya’s sword skills.
  • Grace Helbig | Ah, my spirit animal!  She’ll always be dailygrace to me, but as of next Friday night she’s on all of your TV screens on E!  Here’s Grace on Fallon being perfect.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

WCW: Iliza Shlesinger

I like having Wednesdays free for a good Woman Crush Wednesday because there are a lot of awesome ladies out there that I like to talk about.  Today’s WCW is actually relevant at this point in time!

Iliza Shlesinger is a comedian who holds the distinctions of being both the first woman and the youngest person to win NBC’s Last Comic Standing.  She’s also a fellow Emerson alumni!  Her first comedy special War Paint is available on Netflix now!

War Paint is how I fell in love with Iliza, off of a friend’s recommendation. “She does this thing where she sounds like a goat,” my friend said as she explained her hilarious girls going out bit, and I’m glad I didn’t let this deter me.  I actually loved the goat sound while watching.  You’ll definitely know what I’m talking about if you watch the above clip.

Iliza has recently appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and is touring now.  I highly recommend War Paint.  If you love it too, Iliza’s new comedy special Freezing Hot hits Netflix this Friday!  I, for one, cannot wait.

Do you like stand-up?  Recommend me some comedians, preferably whose work I can stream on Netflix!
