Interrobangbang Linky

Tron dance is fun dance.

[video link changed - found a live version!] In honour of the return of Community to U.S. TV, here’s the recent Paleyfest event. I watched this whole thing and it made me laugh and laugh and laugh. These people love each other and love the work they do.

NOT st PATTY all right? goddammit (via Irish people)

Excellent essay about the 25th anniversary of Evil Dead 2. What a singular movie that is. (via Craig Oxbrow)

the interrobang is 50! (thanks Cat!)

Ivan linked to this deft summary of epic Medievalist mystery document, the Voynich Manuscript

Martin Luther insults everyone

Two pieces on stage magic: the internet hurts the craft of magic, and “how Teller gave me the secret to my career in magic”

Slides! In places! For grown-ups! Includes video of an installation in my favourite gallery space in the world, the Turbine Hall in London’s Tate Modern. Whee!

Lengthy Alan Moore interview, mostly about this sequels-to-Watchmen bizzo.

Rookie Mag has a piece about how Lindsay Weir from Freaks & Geeks is a damn hero.

Mrs Meows writes about The Hunger Games novels, & mostly about how few worthwhile female protagonists there were in the fiction she loved growing up. (Which reminds me – the other day I looked at the newest Hardy Boys & Nancy Drew books. Based on the back cover blurbs and a flick through, Nancy is still a resourceful girl detective, sleuthing her way to the truth, although the book I looked at was set at a beauty and health spa. The Hardy Boys, however, had been transformed into superspy agents of some acronymed secret organisation and were doing extreeeeeeeme action stuff while stopping terrorists from murdering everyone. Man. They used to have a jalopy. They were real proud of their jalopy.)

Excellent essay by China Mieville about London as a post-apocalyptic space. From the New York Times, which is to say, you don’t need to know London to appreciate this.

High school debate as you’ve not heard it before. Turn your sound on – there’s an audio sample embedded in the page. A classic example of what happens when you let the rules of a game become the game itself.

And finally, via Bruce Norris, some Star Wars content, in a manner of speaking

    Jet: I’ve got that marked up for a future linky. Vaguely hoping it’ll get leaked somehow…
