Looks like I'll be traveling to Japan tomorrow: anyone got any quick recommendations for fun, not-too-taxing airplane reads?

I love this post...
Frodo and Sam's journey involved a ton of walking, but just how far did they travel?

The article doesn't mention how the Middle Earth map was first calibrated to the map of Britain. Were distances ever mentioned directly?

D'oh. 
I’m sure the new CBS series from the creators of CW’s hit superhero show Arrow and starring Glee‘s Melissa Benoist can eventually overcome the hurdle of being on CBS. Recently, when Scarlett Johansson hosted [...]

We had to gong the trailer once Kara started flirting with Jimmy (sorry James) Olsen. I hadn't heard the comparison to the SNL skit, but it was disturbingly the same.

I'm working on a new show called Dark Matter, which premieres next month on the network formerly-known as Sci-Fi. Here's the trailer.

Interesting take...
 
+Shoshana Kessock gives voice to an issue I've been thinking about a lot.

A brief moment of perhaps too much honesty, if you'll forgive me.

My last six months of watching social media have been overwhelmingly composed of evidence that more and more of the people I tend to agree with on political and social issues are adopting the toxicity, tactics, lack of nuance, and tendency toward snap judgment that I find so abhorrent in the people I tend to disagree with.

I'm afraid that if I speak against that, I'll be demonized by many of those people, some of whom I consider friends and allies.

I'm afraid that eventually, as my career continues, someone will go find my ten worst moments on the Internet and seek to define me by them, and that when that happens, these supposed friends and allies will believe that portrayal.

But I also don't believe that disengaging completely is the answer, because there are good and vital uses of social media to raise awareness on issues that need talking about.

So I don't know what to do.

But I suppose, if you do see me vanish suddenly from the Internet one day, you'll now know why.
It's getting harder every day to be a creator in the age of the internet. It's never been an easy thing to put your work out in public, at least not for most people I know. Sure, maybe there's some...

I'm not sure I buy the proposed solution of engaging the trolls.

Public shaming can work in face-to-face situations in SOME CASES (it sure as hell helps to comfortable and safe in the space where the conversation is happening). I don't think public shaming will help in online settings.

I'd rather see better moderator responsibility and, when things cross-over into threats of violence, involvement of legal authorities.

If you're going to do it, you might as well be as safe as possible!
If you're going to sext, you might as well understand the risks and learn how to mitigate them.

Doubleshot of fantastic fucking news. The shows might not be perfect (tho Agent Carter sure is close) but the expansion of the MCU by way of them makes me deliriously happy.

+Christopher Ferry , here's s submission for pulp of the day...
One of those held is a low-level aide to California's attorney general. The website for the Masonic Fraternal Police Department calls it "the oldest and most respected organization in the 'World.' "

I have to go with +Stephanie Bryant on the best take for this one:

This is why you have to be careful when representing the shadow government! Sheesh! Amateur hour, I swear. When the lizard overlords hear about this, Harris, they'll have your badge and laser!

Outrage in the Age of the Internet.
I read an article today about a performance of The Mikado in Seattle recently that had people (rightly so) up in arms. The play was dominated by white actors putting on yellowface (that would be dr...
