Morning Roundup: Westeros Gets Built Piece by Piece in Minecraft

Minecraft King’s Landing

Before you consider that enormity, take a gander at some of the more intriguing offsite links. Highlights below the cut include:

  1. A writer on Mother Jones explaining why Return of the Jedi is actually the best Star Wars film.
  2. Star Trek: The Next Generation season 8 as told through Twitter.
  3. A fully detailed model of Hogwarts that’s bigger than your house.

Every day Stubby the Rocket jets around the internet looking for links of interest. When Stubby finds these links, they get put in our handy Links of Interest section and sometimes on our Twitter and Facebook! Today’s selection:


Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com and is really really glad it offloaded Barclay when it had the chance.
