1. Jess Nevins's annotations to League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Nemo’s Heart of Ice (available at Amazon).
2. Kotaku tries to unravel the status of the Star Wars 1313 game. I bet it's dead (especially since there were rumors even at the time of the trailer's release that the main character in the trailer was nothing more than a placeholder). I bet Detours is dead, too, and Disney will focus with laser-like precision on the new movie franchises it's going to create. (Same way Marvel comics and movies are working in unison now.)
3. Spinning Iranian history and Argo.
4. Animated version of the Laughing Squid logo.

1. "The Dow is on the threshold of hitting its all-time high."

3. "Today's New York Times makes it so clear that the United States education system was our way of getting kids out of factories."
4. The super cute Disney/Pixar blind-boxed minifigures I've previously mentioned are available for peorder at EE.
5. My purchase of the day was the latest League of Extraordinary Gentlemen book, Nemo: Heart of Ice. $5-8 at Amazon.

When Andrew Sullivan announced that he was taking his immensely popular blog, The Dish, independent and behind a metered paywall, he raised $333,000 in 24 hours. In the remainder of January, The Dish raised an additional $185,000. Then, on February 21, the site turned on its paywall, and so far this month it’s raised $93,000, Sullivan wrote Monday. That’s a total of $611,000 in a little under two months — about two-thirds of the $900,000 Sullivan believes the site needs to operate in its first year.3. Mouse deer look like some kind of creepy taxidermy experiment.
The pace of subscriptions is clearly slowing — it took a day to reach the first third of the funding The Dish needs in 2013, and nearly two months to raise the second third. How long will it take to raise that remaining $300,000 or so?
4. And speaking of creepy nature, meet the Amazonian frog that practices "functional necrophilia."
5. The Princess Leia prayer icon I posted last week is now on sale.
1. Nintendo can probably afford a failure or two:
Nintendo has £6.7 ($10.5) billion in the bank and, even if making big losses every year, that considerable nest egg would keep the company going until 2052.2. Powerful post by a woman about struggling to preserve a marriage after being diagnosed with cancer. Via.
3. This tumblr has a great background. Cool ring, too.

1. Nightmare fuel.
2. Reasonably priced commissions.
3. "[T]he ratio of debt to income for the average new vet[erinarian] is roughly double that of M.D.’s." The cost of a degree has skyrocketed and starting salaries have plummeted.
