A litte late this week. I’d like to get Hey, Internet out on Sunday mornings, so that you can absorb it while you drink coffee and slowly return to consciousness. Instead, you can read it tonight while you drink beer and decompress from work. In case you were wondering, the theme song to the Hey, Internet weekly link crawl sounds an awful lot like this.
A poem, also from The Collagist.
I have a lot of new things to read now, though I was surprised by how many of these I’ve already read. I looked over this flowchart and thought, “Wow! I am a pretty big nerd!”
I continue to be obsessed with the digitization of literature, despite the fact that I don’t own a digital reader.
I am absurdly excited to play this. “A day in the FBI was never like this before! You are Special Agent Dale Cooper and you’ve found yourself trapped inside of the Black Lodge, a surreal and dangerous place between worlds.”
I could write an essay about the DC reboot, except I’m never going to go read the DC reboot. That, and Laura Hudson already did it for me. There’s a reason why I tend to follow my favorite writers around the legacy series rather than following the series themselves. One of the many, many things I love about Grant Morrison? He writes female characters like a champ.
Speaking of female comic book characters, Christopher Lirette wrote a really neat essay about the Dark Phoenix Saga over HTMLGiant. Despite the essay’s long title, it’s readable and not excessively wanky. He also points out something I really should have noticed before. You guys! CYCLOPS IS THE MALE GAZE!
When will I stop being endlessly fascinated by juggalos? Not today.
