A Random Assortment of Loose Links

Corrina Lawson is doing a series for Wired Magazine called Creating The Croods. It's a quote-filled, info-packed, combination studio tour/making-of featurette. If you only click one of these links, make it this one!

I'm not sure if it's part of some community service plea-bargain related to his recent arrest, but Belt is touring the country, meeting kids and handing out prizes. Folks in NY, NJ, PA and CA can click here to see the dates and times.

Good news for fans of globalization. You can now support TWO corporations for the price of ONE! The newest byproduct of the DreamWorks/McDonalds partnership are Croods Happy Meal toys! Click here to check 'em out.

One of my favorite parts of visiting my sister in LA is driving around, looking at all of the humungous billboards for upcoming films. They're a testament to the industry's ego, the city's patience, and my childlike wonder with all things big, bright and shiny. The Croods' billboards can be seen here.

Turns out I'm not the only one making strange-looking meals inspired by The Croods. The now-famous 'Mommy Bloggers' are at it, too! While some of the meals appear to be preexisting recipes that were tagged with a Croods label after the fact, this burnt banana concoction looks like a TRUE Croods snack item.

Hate to cook? Then this next 'Mommy Blogger' tie-in might be more to your liking. It's billed as a step-by-step guide to making your hair look like Eep's, but the hairstyle in the final photo looks NOTHING like our curious cavegirl's triangle 'do. In fact, it looks a heckuva lot like something out of a Jane Austen adaptation. Oh, well. It's still cute.
