Linkblogging For 25/11/14

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Hickey on November 26, 2014

I was going to get a California Dreaming post up tonight, and had a chunk of it written, but made the mistake of going online to check a fact, and that meant I saw some stuff in the news, and I ended up literally weeping for humanity, so you get links while I recover my mental health…

If we had enough housing and better wages, immigration wouldn’t be our top concern. Tim Farron talks sense.

Lembit Opik fails to beat the Liberal Democrats

Zoe O’Connell is worried that the new IP matching measures are essentially just the communications data bill under another name

Two things that my fellow Mindless Ones have done — Dan White has collected all his Cindy & Biscuit comics into one collection, which you can buy here. It’s the comic of the year, without question (yes, even better than that one). Meanwhile Illogical Volume has started posting previews of his book on The Filth, coming out next year.

Sorry for doing two linkblogs in relatively quick succession, but I haven’t had time to write anything today as Plok is visiting Manchester. Proper post tomorrow.

The Privilege Denier’s Diversity Monitoring Form

Todd Klein has done a seven-part history of the transition from hand lettering to digital lettering in comics. It starts here.

Freedom of speech and the right to protest

Linkblogging For 14/11/14

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Hickey on November 15, 2014

Today has been a bad day. However, tomorrow is Thought Bubble, so things should improve.
There will probably be no posts here until Monday, but I’m *hoping* to get my thoughts on Batman’s (rather racist) wartime adventures posted to my Patreon site at some point over the weekend. No promises though — Thought Bubble weekend is *busy*…

Meanwhile, links:

The disillusionment index — the decline of the two major parties

Bleeding Cool has a plausible explanation for the missing episode omnirumour and fallout

Peter Watts on the troll who has upset most of online SF fandom recently

Shabogan Graffiti on the appeal of the detective story

Obverse Books have open submissions for stories for the next Iris Wildthyme collection, which sounds like it will basically be Mr Benn — The Hauntological Version.

And Jeet Heer on Donne, Milton, and the birth of science fiction

Linkblogging For 10/11/14

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Hickey on November 10, 2014

I’m exhausted and confused after a very hard day, so today you only get links and I’m getting an early night, but I’ll try to post a real post tomorrow morning (I’ve got one on Windy by the Association mostly done, so if I sleep now I can finish it before work), and that’ll be a belated today-post. In the meantime, links:

Tim O’Neill reviews Interstellar.

Jack Graham on Daleks and racism

Some thoughts on the prospects for a replacement for Miliband

Gavin Burrows on the Cartier/Kneale 1984 (and you should read the earlier posts, on Quatermass, as well).

The economics of anxiety

And Paul Magrs’ Brenda & Effie mysteries — about the Bride of Frankenstein, retired to Whitby, solving mysteries with a friend — are being turned into a series of original audio dramas
