This is just a fraction of what women endure online, often for merely being present. You know, you can disagree with someone without dehumanizing them. Or is it simply that you're a manbaby terrified of that Great Other, women? Whatever it is, men, we need to #StopBeingAssholes.

This is a fun story about going behind the scenes at Medieval Times, the chivalrous dinner-theater chain. I keep intending to check out the one in Chicago; maybe this summer. 
We sent two staffers to spend the day at the dinner theater's New Jersey outpost.

"The idea to approach the Arthurian legends as a mystery ends up being an inspired one, allowing Bledsoe to play with clues and reveals in a way that gives them far more emotional impact than they might have had originally."

A new review of DARK JENNY, the third Eddie LaCrosse novel.

The Squirrel Boy has got us watching THE ADVENTURES OF MERLIN. It's really enjoyable, if obviously aimed at a YA audience. And it's a bit distracting that their Arthur looks a lot like a blond Ian Curtis.

Okay, why has no one told me about this before?

Not only got 2,500 words done yesterday, but I was so inspired I worked into the evening, which I never do; usually my brain's done for the day no later than 3 PM. Could this be a good sign for Tufa #6?

This has been bouncing around my feed for a few days, but if you haven't read it, it's a really cogent explanation of what Superman means, and why Snyder's Superman is such a betrayal.

Just finished a history of Nashville's Bluebird Cafe compiled in 2003. The shadow of Garth Brooks looms over the whole book, and it got me thinking about his almost total disappearance from music. Not just his retirement from recording and performing, but the fact that no one covers his songs, many of which were gigantic hits. Wonder why that is?

Or to say it like a country music business insider,
"cause he already done sung it."

This resonates with some other events in my life today, but it's also a demonstration of what Superman SHOULD be. It's a cinch Zack Snyder never read this.
