Some how I missed the memo where the internet loves the guys in Disney theme parks that play Peter Pan. And I’m not saying they don’t deserve the love, but this one meme just keeps popping up in the strangest, oddest, most profound gifs and stories. Go Pan, I guess. Bang-a-rang.
Apple Lost the eBook Trial.
Apple fucked up. Hahahahahahahahahahaha
And that’s all I have to say about that.
George Washington Library
Let me get this straight... We gave a library to G. W. Bush before we gave one to a Founding Father. Yeah, we kept his house all pretty, made him a big penis sculpture and told fun lies about him and an illicit cherry tree, but we didn’t retroactively name a library after him when we started that practice? Somebody dropped the ball on that one, just sayin.
Card’s Marriage Thoughts
Somebody made the “fun” decision to ask Orson Scott Card, author of Ender’s Game (which is about to be a big movie), what he thought about gay marriage given recent decisions. He said some stuff. "Some stuff like, The government ruled on it, so who cares what I think?", an answer his publicist is calling “a slam dunk” and what the rest of the world is calling a bunch of bullshit.
This brings up an interesting argument that I have had before. Do you divorce an author from his work? If an author/musician/artist has controversial viewpoints that he acts on by supporting viewpoints opposed to his own, do you then feel an obligation to not support his or her art despite the quality? What if that person is long dead and is in no way benefitting from your support?
Example: Historical evidence is found that proves Shakespeare wrote so well about murder because he killed a ton of people for research. He did not, but that’s why we have imaginations, roll with it. Do you still think all the plays of his that contain murder are still okay to be read and acted even though each one cost the lives of men/women/children?
Something to chew on. Let me know in the comments, on twitter, wherever you like.
Bucket of Blood
There’s a street named Bucket of Blood. Thought you should know.
