Nice bea..rd..?

When one cannot grow a leonine mane, one compensates.

Welcome to our massive list of fascinating links from around the web, which we've hand picked for you over the course of the past two weeks. It's been quite the journey. We've braved heat, trans-continental travel, huge crowds of geeks, and yet the internet presented us with this bounty of entertainment to enjoy during the lulls in activity. This, my friends, is why we adore the intertubes and everyone who resides there.

So click through and be entertained! There are some great and wondrous things in this list. Things that you cannot unsee, and likely would not want to.

meaningless icon! Those vintage novels covers are just brilliantly brilliant. Do I spy a Shadow of the Colossus (a.k.a. my favorite game of all time) reference?
