It’s an ALL NEW FEATURE and it debuts TODAY and it’s by Ewa S-R whom you know from Twitter as that hilarious person who always posts THE BEST STUFF and now she writes for Hodderscape BECAUSE ZOMG. (More after the jump.)

JANUARY IS OVER, EVERYONE

 

As a reward, here are some lovely/weird/interesting things you may have missed while the month was being a bit of an emotional rollercoaster

 

  • This Is Colossal featured a beautiful rotating mirrored ziggurat in the Iranian desert that really plays tricks with the eye and yet, somehow, works eerily well with the landscape in the most science fiction way.
  • They’ve discovered a spider they’ve subtly decided to call the CRYPTOMASTER BEHEMOTH which is the most amazing name, although the spider itself has a body only 4mm long. At least there isn’t a bigger spider more worthy of the name, that’s all I’m saying.
  • Boing Boing have featured an INFLATABLE T-REX COSTUME. There is no “why”.
  • Meanwhile, a dog goes out for a pee and ends up coming seventh in a marathon. The sort of news is of absolutely no use to anyone but is so very lovely to know.
  • Some absolutely DELIGHTFUL character has put together a Suicide Squad-style trailer for The Lord of the Rings. It works. IT WORKS!
  • Please be seated for Alan Rickman’s final work: a voice over for a charity video by Save the Children and trexThe Refugee Council that raises money with every view. So. Yes.

 

VALENTINE’S is in about two weeks, so it’s time for NERD CARDS

 

 

MEANWHILE, ELSEWHERE

 

 

FINAL THING

 

EPIC RACCOON GIF

PS the raccoon picks himself up and staggers off and is FINE because raccoons are made of fur and teeth and the most insane luck: TRUE FACT.
