UnRecent Linky

Digging through the backlog of linky suspects. Hopefully none of these have been linked before.

Great essay from the Columbia Journalism Review (via the DimPost I think, it’s been a while) about being a young woman journo moving into the new media (Gawker!), or more generally, about what was (is) going on in journalism.

Evan Dorkin’s FUN strips. Hilarious. Inappropriate. Not nearly as well-known as they should be. (Dude writes for Yo Gabba Gabba now, parents! See the horrible truth behind his child-friendly exterior!)

David Lynch’s interview project. Lynch went around the US interviewing random people. I haven’t watched any of these but one day I will. I kinda imagine it’ll be like The Straight Story, but real.

One thought on “UnRecent Linky”

  1. The pixel art is clever

    Interested by the gay to straight conversion camp story… especially the use of touch. My youth group was very touchy/huggy, and when I found myself on the outside because I was asking inappropriate questions, one of the things that nearly sent me back was missing the physical contact, and apparently for enforcing social bonds… I find this very creepy!

    I’ve been thinking of writing a “religious retreat” (real life horror) LARP for Fright Night, with an evangelical couple from the states visiting a NZ congregation to help them cast out their demons… hadn’t considered the gay angle, just het promiscuity. This would be a good plotline…
