For those unfamiliar with this fad, Draw My Life consists of videos where people make a series of drawings which they link together with a voiceover explaining about their life. It is not as repetitive as it sounds because other than talk about your life people can use whatever they like and cover whatever aspect they want of their life.
Today I found out that Machinima decided to join by having Princess Zelda’s turn with the white board. I am sure you will enjoy the ride and the references.
In celebration of Toon Link’s HD debut, why not buy a pair of Converse All-Stars with our favorite cel-shaded hero adorning them? They’ll set you back $140.00, but just look at them. These are truly unique; each pair is hand-painted upon ordering.
Also available are Four Swords High Tops. Since these are custom ordered, picking out two different colored shoes is obviously the way to go.
This week’s fan art comes from zerochan.net, and features a plethora of Links to fawn over. Which one is your favorite? Sound off in the comments below! (Mine? Tie between the boyishly playful Young Link of OoT, and the dark and brooding TP Link.)
Want some milk, but don’t have a cow, ocarina, or the ability to play Epona’s Song? Don’t stress! YellerCrakka is here to save the day! For $12.00 USD, you can have your very own bottle of Lon Lon Milk to carry along wherever your journeys may lead you.
Smooth McGroove, a Youtube user, recently made several video game acapellas, one of which happened to be a acapella of The Wind Waker’s Ocean Overworld theme. Each note of the song was recorded in a seperate video and every note and video was put into a montage.
Zelda Informer recently got a hand on some HD footage of the E3 2011 trailer for The Legend of Zelda Wii U. Back awhile ago, when the tech demo for Legend of Zelda Wii U was released, we were subjected to horrible off-screen quality and the glares that were cast off the other demo units in the area as well as flashing cameras.
After the jump you can see the few nine seconds of the demo trailer.

This week’s Featured Fan Art is a Majora’s Mask fan art called “Terrible Fate” made by uniqueLegend (also known as EternalLegend). The artwork depicts the Happy Mask Salesman appearing behind Deku Link, saying that Link met a terrible fate.
What I like about the artwork is how much detail that she put into the picture. The expressions on each of the masks are well done and the expression of Link is well done too. The picture also looks almost like a real painting.
Kotaku has made an interesting article about Hyrule Castle and why they think that no one would be able to afford to live in Hyrule Castle, unless they were pretty much millionaires.
An infographic by Movoto has shown that Hyrule Castle would possibly upwards to $113,807,400. Not only that, they have placed that Ocarina of Time‘s Hyrule was based on the Tuscany area of Italy.
Here’s some points to prove their theory:
The Gerudo Desert: This was one of the tricky parts. Sure it was easy to find places with forests, fields, and even mountains—but to throw a desert in there? C’mon, geography! But in Tuscany, Italy there is the Accona Desert. In fact, it even lies to the west, much like Gerudo in the game.
The Volcano: Now this was another reason Hyrule had to be Tuscany: Larderello Volcano. Surrounding Larderello volcano is the village of Larderello, aka Kakariko Village from the game. And surrounding the village, mountainous terrain where if you look hard enough, you’ll probably find some Gorons wandering around.
The Lost Woods/Kokiri Forest: Berignone Forest, one of the largest forests and today, natural reserves in Tuscany.
Lake Hylia: Lake Montedoglio is nestled in the Province of Arezzo in Tuscany. This lake has been well-known for its fishing for years and years. (But sorry, I couldn’t find a real-life tunnel to Zora’s Domain.)
Lon Lon Ranch and surrounding field: The closest I found to Lon Lon Ranch was Podere Palazzone, a famous horse ranch in Tuscany. It is surrounded by miles and miles of green grassland, perfect for Epona to stretch her legs.
Hyrule Market/Hyrule Castle: Finally, the reason we’re all here: The castle. I thought since Hyrule Village is the capital city of the land of Hyrule in the game, it would only do to equate it to the capital of Tuscany: Florence. The Market in the game is the city of Florence, similar to how it actually was around 1400—merchants, mask shops, potions, painters, a large cathedral (the Duomo around 1400 was not the elaborate marble and colorful masterpiece that we see today; it was grey, tall, and austere—much like the Temple of Time.)
And if I haven’t already out-nerded myself, one final reason the land of Hyrule must be Tuscany, Italy: The ocarina. The first use of the ocarina in western civilization was in Italy centuries ago.
