Zelda Fitzgerald Lets It All Hang Out

The New Yorker

In the fifth episode of "Z: The Beginning of Everything," the new Amazon drama about the lives of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Christina Ricci, who plays a newly married nineteen-year-old Zelda, in 1920, appears in a doorway of a crowded hotel suite completely nude. Well, that's not entirely true: she is wearing a gold bracelet, a black hair ribbon, and a huge brunette pubic wig. I was not surprised by this scene, but only because I came to it mentally prepared; a week before, the headline "Christina Ricci Has Feelings About Her Zelda Fitzgerald Merkin" had flashed across my screen. To spare you the click, Ricci felt that her merkin was too big. "I wanted them to digitally reduce it," she told an interviewer.

We all want to play as Zelda in a Legend of Zelda game but Nintendo has yet to make that happen. So a group of modders took matters into their own hands and made Zelda the star of Breath of the Wild.

Newly uncovered vintage 'Zelda' screenshot reveals a completely different game and it's freaking us out

Ferret has successful pacemaker surgery at Kansas State

Daily Mail - Science & tech

A ferret named Zelda is recovering at home after being fitted with a pacemaker during a rare surgery at Kansas State University. Surgeons say it's the first time they've performed this type of procedure on a ferret, which required the use of special wires, given her small size, to bring energy from the pacemaker to the heart. Zelda had a third-degree block in her heart, which caused a low heart beat and a lack of energy – but, thanks to the ground-breaking surgery, she's expected to live out a full ferret lifespan of around ten years.
