It’s been an interesting week. Things are finally starting to back to normal with regards to work and life. The house is still an absolute disaster with shopping bags and suitcases everywhere, but Gatsby is better and as rambunctious as ever. And I’m officially returning to the freelance life.

It happened a little more abruptly than I had expected, but the timing is right and it’s on good terms. It’s scary, but I only see good things on the horizon.

And now I’ll finally have the time I need to get over that hill.

On to the links:

Venture Beat’s got some suggestions of what to play to cleanse the palate of the GTA V ick.

And speaking of GTA, apparently the jury’s still out on whether you can rig the stock market in GTA V online. Can’t wait to listen to the Planet Money episode on this.

Leigh Alexander has some sobering (read: depressing) thoughts on the current state of the video game industry and their relationship to the press.

I’m pretty sure I NEED this Stasia Burrington pin-up girls calendar. NEED.

Speaking of NEED. This bag. So many reasons.

gamesbymo finally issued another A.N.N.E. update. It is very cute, and now A.N.N.E. is a fully playable character!

So many crafty gift ideas in the Kitschy Digitals Holiday Gift Guide.

These Miyazaki inspired Vines will put a charmed smile on your face.

    That red bag is stunning! and the miyazaki tribute did put a smile on my face, although it’s sad there will be no more films 🙁

      Well, Studio Ghibli will still be making films. Just no more from Miyazaki himself. 🙁

        Oh right, I just assumed they stop without Miyazaki. Be interested to see the future films now!

      It’s all I can do not to buy that bag. It’s exactly the design and size that I’m looking for (although I’d prefer a more neutral colour), but it’s really the ghosty that sends it over the edge for me.
