Fave Links Friday 8/16: Funkos, TV Deliveries, Spider Silk and More!

If you’ve found yourself wondering where all the good writing’s gone, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite links with you on a weekly basis! It might be short fiction, it might be news articles, it might be random blog posts from me and from others!

None of these links are sponsored. I really just liked them!

Don’t forget, you can check out previous weeks’ lists in the Fave Links Friday category!

I strongly encourage you to call your representatives and tell them you won’t stand for concentration camps, and that we need some goddamn gun control. You can use Common Cause to find out who your reps are and what they stand for if you aren’t sure.

This week, I’ve been working and watching old episodes of Master Chef while I edited a short story for publication. (I announced it in my newsletter today so go check it out!)

I also did an at-home sleep study, which was an odd experience. Hopefully, it’ll be a useful one, though. I should have results within a month to see if I need a CPAP or to undergo further testing. Cross your fingers for me to get some answers sooner rather than later if you will!

In other exciting news, my debut novel came out a year ago today! In celebration, it’s ABSOLUTELY FREE ON AMAZON today only! 

On to the links!

Have you ever wondered exactly why Funko Pops are so dang popular? I know I have! This Vox article does a deep dive into it and I found it really interesting.

Up next on my list of interesting reads is this Virginian Pilot article about a spider silk library! Textiles are fascinating, as is spider silk! I was truly intrigued by this one and what it means for the future.

Library of spider silk could hold secrets for new materials

Last but certainly not least, I have a link to a local-ish news story from the Washington Post. I think the headline speaks for itself on this one. Have yourself a good giggle.

Someone left old TVs outside 50 homes in Virginia while wearing a TV on his head. No one knows why.
