Morning Roundup: The Cosplaying Icelandic Mayor

Jón Gnarr Kristinsson is the mayor of Reykjavík, which is a the capital city of Iceland. He recently showed up to the Reykjavík International Film Festival as Obi-Wan Kenobi. But he’s cosplayed before! He also marched in his city’s Gay Pride Parade dressed as a member of Pussy Riot. We saw this on io9, thought it was amazing, and immediately wished our mayor was doing something fun instead of banning soda for no reason.

The rest of your daily offsite links are not dressed up as anything, but they still love you.

Highlights include:

  1. Lots of Doctor Who stuff.
  2. Hipster Disney Princesses.
  3. Listen to the first part of the new 007 Adele song.


Four-year-old Lindalee’s most recent Doctor Who review.

Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Stubby offered to help Adele sing “Skyfall” but didn’t get a call back.
