Daily Graffiti: Zelda Bitch
DA-NA-NA-NAAA! Clever Triforce graffiti spotted by Christopher Allen in an upper floor of City Methodist Church in Gary, Indiana of all places.
A Little Bit on the Triforce Cutting Board Side: I enjoy cutting things. With a knife. I’m way too hardcore to use a cutting board, but for the sake of argument, if I were to buy one, it would probably be this one with a Triforce in it. It would give me the courage, power, and wisdom to cut, chop, and dice like no other.
A Little Bit On The Sweet Haircut, Bro! Side: The Triforce crest from the Legend of Zelda series is a pretty iconic symbol in geekdom. Flickr user Boon Cotter thought it was awesome enough to get shaved into his domepiece.
A Little Bit On The Customized Side: OSKUNK! managed to make an oldschool Game Boy even more awesome by giving it an ultra delicious Zelda makeover. It’s okay, feel free to drool.

Albotas Went to the Zelda Party: Part I
I freakin’ love NYC. There’s always something awesome to do. When we went to check out Rainbow City, we found out Nintendo World would be hosting a Zelda party the following day. The party was meant to celebrate the launch of the 3DS version of Ocarina of Time.
I was worried that I’d look like a kid-toucher, what with being a guy in his 20s at a Nintendo party. Luckily, the place was packed kids and adults alike (way over the fire limit, by the way). When we stepped into the store, we were handed a scavenger list of Skullturas scattered throughout the two stories. Some were surprisingly hard to find. After filling out the list, you could drop it into a treasure chest to enter a raffle for some Zelda merch.
There were some other cool Zelda-themed happenings, too. A handful of cardboard standees were placed here and there, replicas of the Master Shield, Deku Shield and potions were behind the bottom floor’s register, and a giant triforce stood on the top floor.
Places should do this more often. I got to shop and have a ton of adventurey fun. Be sure to come back tomorrow for Albotas Goes to the Zelda Party: Part II. We’ll have a video of the raffle up for your viewing pleasure. I’d post it right now but it’s taking forever to render.
