GRAMMAR WATCH: Neighbors Support Dudes Who Allegedly Raped Rehteah Parsons

Here’s a serious thing I’d like you to consider: both of these young men are holding up posters that say “There’s Two Sides.” The pink flier on the ground also says “There’s Two Sides.”

I submit to you that people who do not understand  verb number agreement are not to be relied upon for ethical advice.

Monster Putty Eats Magnet

18 Apr

So this guy mixed iron filings with Silly Putty and it turned the Silly Putty into a MAGNET-CRAZED EATING MACHINE. And I recommend watching the time-lapsed video. Honestly, I’d watch just about any time-lapse video.

In Memory of Storm Thorgerson

Thorgerson created amazing album covers for Pink Floyd, among others. Here’s a great compilation and a clever picture in his memory (“Back Catalogue,” get it?).

Here is a very scary short film by “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” and “From Hell” writer Alan Moore and photographer Mitch Jenkins. Excellent.

Neil Gaiman Writing a Sequel to “American Gods”

18 Apr

Seriously, how this one slipped by I’ll never know, but Tor.com, which you’d think would be fairly reliable, printed the following in a blog post on a talk Neil Gaiman gave at the Cambridge International Student Film Festival on his TV and film work, on the subject of the upcoming HBO “American Gods” series:

The first two seasons of the show will consist of the book. By then Gaiman hopes to have the American Gods sequel novel written and headed for release.

Look, I don’t exactly want to fanboy squee all over this one because I know “American Gods” gets talked up a lot, but it really is a very, very good book; well-written and perfectly plotted. Gaiman continuing the story (beyond the tie-in he wrote for Robert Silverberg’s “Legends” anthologies, which is quite good and reprinted in “Fragile Things”) is very, very good news indeed.
