links galore.

 This is one of my favorite shirts. What do Italians do better? You tell me. 

I've been meaning to do a review of Fifty Shades of Grey for you all but it was going to be in a video and I haven't had the house to myself in weeks...and this is the kind of thing I need to be alone in the house for if you know what I'm saying.

Wait, no. Not like that.

I just really want to read some of the book out loud, to really emphasize the world's worst prose ever in the history of writing. Read a second grader's diary and it'll be more thought provoking and have less grammatical errors. You know how many times the protagonist thinks to herself "HOLY CRAP"? Probably a bajillion. And oh, the gasping. So. Much. Gasping.

Anyway I'll get into it more later. In the meantime if you do see anybody reading this garbage, please just go up to them and hit it out of their hands into a puddle. For science.

Now for some links.
