A Flight of Links

- Some design student produced a CDC-kit for the event of a zombie apocalypse.
- A very well thought-out article on the Escapist concerns "The Burden of Lore" and how world building affects later products of a franchise.
- Zero Punctation knows it's about the characters, stupid!
- Blizzard planned a Space Diablo at some point but scrapped it.
- Steven Attewell gives us a brillant analysis of the handships of Eddard Stark and Jon Arryn.
- MovieBob talks about the strange tattoo on the Mandarin's neck depicted in the Iron Man 3 trailer and throws some theories around.
- There's a featurette for Cloud Atlas on Youtube about the different roles the actors had to play. I'm very excited for this movie, since I read the book and want to know how they pulled it off, especially my favorite chapters. Alyssa has a review for the movie, by the way.
- io9 has news about the Maps of Ice and Fire.
- How Germany would vote. Real poll done here by a huge tv station.
- Thought catalogue examines ASOIAF characters for their marital material-ness and tells you who you are based on your favorite character.
- "Overthinking it", a site I hadn't known before and which I linked in the sitebar, has a very nice essay about Martin's repetition of words in "A Dance with Dragons". Also check out this and this and got searching for yourself.
- This must be the weirdest and funniest political ad by a Hollywood celebrity I saw up to date: Joss Whedon endorses Mitt Romney
