Hey you guuuuyssss. Sorry it has been so long since my last tidbit explosion all over this page. I hope you are tid-tillating with the following:
- Here is your feel good international library sory to get you through Thursday and Friday, and onto your weekend: there are now 100 public mini-libraries in permanent kiosks in parks across Colombia, and if you live in the city of Bogota, you are extra lucky because there are 47. The project began ten years ago in an effort to promote literacy in the country. If you speak Spanish, you can watch the following news story on it. If not, you can still watch it for the only on Spanish-language television interview positioning at the two minute mark.
- In bygone days, I hinted at my deep reverence for the early 90's TV show, Carmen San Diego (in the context of burying it deep in a ramble about my #1 love, The Oregon Trail). I still want to go on that game show and lose! According to Vulture, Jenny from the Block has attached herself to a film remake of this most fabulous show. Ugh. Ughhh. Ughhhhh. So wrong.
- Ally Carter's Heist Society 3: Perfect Scoundrels just got a new dress. Except I'm going to be totally honest here, my first, second, and third reaction to it was: "Isn't that the same cover?" Yes, yes it more or less is. And also, I'd like to draw your attention to the 35-year-old banker dude in the sunglass reflection.
- Things that just don't sound like a good idea to me: Hunger Games live action role playing. Everyone gets straight up fight club murdered! And yet, it happens, and someone got really hurt. I wish this young woman a speedy recovery. Be safe out there, larpers.
- So you want to smell like a vampire. Or a witch. Or BOTH. Lucky for you, Viking press is launching a promo for Deborah Harkness' Shadow of Night, which includes...perfume. Yeah, I don't know either. But now you can find out what the undead smell like after they do vampire yoga. Score! I am more excited to actually read the sequel to A Discovery of Witches than I am to smell like it, but each to their own, right?
