This Week in Neat-O

:: 6 Insane Plot Points Marvel Movies Refuse To Delve Into. I usually don't care for stuff like this, but #3 is particularly interesting to think about.

:: These Letters Between C.S. Lewis And J.R.R. Tolkien Shed Light On One Of The Greatest Literary Friendships Of All Time. Parody, but it made me laugh with its absurdity.

:: After The Birdcage, Hollywood shoved gay comedies back in the closet. I really didn't like this movie 20 years ago; disappointing, because La Cage aux Folles is one of my all time favorite films. I'll have to see it again. (Also, get it together, Hollywood. Don't go out of your way to make movies less gay-, female-, and POC-friendly and then rend your garments about how not enough people go see movies anymore.)

:: Obama embraces retirement in spoof video

:: The Collapse of the Middle-Class Job

:: What “Taking the Country back” means for the rest of us.

:: Nerve looks kinda dumb-fun. Into the Forest is intrigueresting. And I really hope The Neon Demon (NSFW red band trailer) is as good as it looks to me.

:: In 1988, McDonald’s released a maddening “$1,000,000 Menu Song”

:: Everything I love is being canceled. I was disappointed but unsurprised that The Muppets got canceled. Still... blurgh. I'm very, very pissed to be losing Agent Carter. I just read that the Darth Vader comic book has been canceled. Man, Gareth Edwards isn't even going to direct the too-long-awaited Godzilla 2. At least Supergirl is changing networks... I hope it keeps its cast, because I adore that show.

Such is choosing to watch TV.
