Linksgiving (Fannibals, Peggy Olson, and More)

Art by ne0nic0.tumblr.com
Okay, I’ll be honest, I’ve been camping all week, so I don’t actually know if these are the most relevant links in the world. Maybe something really interesting happened this week that I don’t know about. Wouldn’t be the first time.

But these are the links we’ve got. And they’re pretty rad.

(Also, I do love camping and the outdoors and all that, but man is it nice to sit in a chair again.)

As always, feel free to shamelessly self-promote in the comments below, or shoot us an email at kissmywonderwoman@gmail.com if you have something you want included next week.

1. The Atlantic takes on television again, this time asking, “Why Is the Golden Age of TV So Dark?” Which is a fair question.

2. Polish photographer Ilona Szwarc has a fantastic exhibition up that shows images of 100 American girls with their American Girl Dolls. I had one of those growing up, and all the books, and this exhibit, well, it’s just plain cool.

3. A Portal fan turned their entire bedroom into an homage to the game, with Aperture Science logos, instructions, and fake portals all over the place. This girl is my hero.

4. Buzzfeed has a great piece on the surprising rise of the Hannibal fandom, and the entertaining weirdness of a bunch of people obsessed with a show about cannibalism. They call themselves Fannibals.

5. Patrick Stewart is a fabulous human being and also a feminist, as he discussed in this awesome video on Women and Hollywood. He talks about domestic abuse, the role of women in society, and why he is a feminist.

6. Ever filled with rage by the horrifically impractical armor you see on female characters? Buzzfeed has you covered, literally. Check out their gallery of skimpy armor that’s been “fixed” to be more practical.

7. And finally, here’s a video of “The Evolution of Peggy Olson”, who went from shy secretary to no-nonsense ad woman on Mad Men.



That’s it for this week on KMWW. Tune in tomorrow for Crossover Appeal, and we’ll be back on Monday with a look at RED 2.
