Batch of links

- There’s a new app that lets you boycott various products, based on your beliefs. It makes the job easy by showing you exactly which companies are behind them once you scan their barcode. Yet another reason a smartphone would be useful…

- A video game-themed bar and restaurant that I find pretty neat.

- A typography cake with a hidden message! This is adorable!

- Also, if you like pretty cakes (and who doesn’t?), check out Marcella Robin’s cakes!

- Did you hear that Merida, from Brave, got an unnecessary makeover? I was flabbergasted at first, then outraged, but then I read The Blogess’ commentary and I feel better. Not that Disney couldn’t improve its role models, though.

- In the same line of thought, people last week made a big deal out of a comment by the CEO of Abercrombie & Fitch, who basically said that he refused to make plus-sized clothes because he only caters to the good-looking, cool crowd. I didn’t mention it then, even though I thought this made him a douchebag, but now I have to share what this guy is doing in retaliation, because it is full of awesome.

- I loved this speech on adulthood, which is really about consciously adjusting your attitude.

- Finally, since I’m a fan of the “Hey, girl” meme, this had me in stitches: Ryan Gosling won’t eat his cereal.
