Fantastically Fun Fridays: February 10, 2012

Happy Friday!  Our first link for you this afternoon comes courtesy of Marcos Faria--an anthem for gamers that explains the allure of the virtual adventure:

Here are some of the other fun things we found around the Internet this week:

  • Like Star Wars?  Like Man Men?  Then this mash-up from Dann Matthews will be right up your alley! (Death Star PR)
  • Lana Del Rey's song "The Hunger Games" is hauntingly beautiful. (YouTube--some language NSFW)
  • And while we're on the subject of The Hunger Games, an incredible map of Panem created by V. Arrow (aka aimmyarrowshigh).  Not only has she created an amazing map, but she walks you through her thought process. (LiveJournal)
  • A lot of amazing authors wrote mini-stories about the critters on the Shared Worlds Writing Camp 2012 page--click on the different critters to read their stories! (Wofford College/Shared Worlds)
  • Marc Snetiker's thoughts on how Star Wars changed his life. (Popwatch)
  • Rodarte's guide to the best episodes of Buffy, The Vampire Slayer. (Rookie)
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
