Friday Link Dump: Gatsby Research, Shakespearean Insults And My Latest Obsession

TFIF.
-Some designers sketched their interpretations of Katniss' wedding gown. Is it November yet?

-Here's a peek into some of the research that went into the upcoming The Great Gatsby movie. Is it May yet?

-Jason Segel is writing a YA trilogy. I don't know how I feel about this.

-The second edition of the Game of Thrones Facebook feed is as hilarious as the first.

-Shakespearean insults combined with cat photos are surprisingly awesome. Or perhaps that's not so surprising.

-This Tumblr compiles movie and TV costumes that have been reused across multiple productions. I'm obsessed.

-Speaking of Tumblr, I finally watched the awesomeness that is Parks and Recreation, and naturally went on a Tumblr hunt. I found Tom Haverfoods, Cats that look like Ron Swanson and Hipster Parks and Rec. And then I giggled. A lot.

-Prepare to have your childhood ruined/mind blown by these current pictures of the actors in your fave 80s and 90s movies.

-One Disney fan created some Princess-inspired rings and they're mostly pretty and all expensive. 

-This artist gave famous paintings the Photoshop treatment and it's quite disturbing.

-Baby + puppies = squeegasm.

-You may have noticed a big blue button on the right hand column urging you to vote for this blog in the Best Australian Blogs competition. In case that was too subtle, I'm urging you again. Consider yourself urged.

  1. HOW GOOD IS PARKS AND REC!?

    I think a Jason Segel YA series could be good? Maybe? I feel like he'd be a very honest writer, which is always good.

  9. I'm a little obsessed with these link dumps- they're always so fun and I'm sure to find a new thing to love! The thing that makes me not so skeptical about the Jason Segel YA series is that it's supposed to be a little mix of Labryinth- if it is, I am sold.
    Excellent compilation/link dump!

  11. While I knew what most of my favorite actors of the 80s and 90s currently look like, it was reallly fun to see their old and new pics side by side.

    Those Disney rings rooock! Pocahontas is my fav.
