1. The Book Fair for Ballou returns. Please think about whether you're able to purchase a book or two for this fantastic school library. This year you can also buy for Ballou's "feeder" school Charles Hart Middle School.

2. Silvia Moreno-Garcia created a really interesting thread about authenticity, 'fabricated culture', and the way tourism, and popular culture, has changed the way The Day of the Dead is celebrated.

3. There's a great roundtable piece up at Vulture about discussing race and pop culture, which partly follows on from Wesley Morris' recent essay.


4. I really enjoyed this extended interview with Jennie Snyder Urman, the creator and showrunner for Jane the Virgin, which is in production on its final season.

5. While this list of 43 upcoming SFF shows includes a lot of the usual white-dude suspects (do we seriously need five potential spinoffs of Game of Thrones??? Or another LoTR adaptation?), scrolling through does provide info about some gems, like the news that Jordan Peele is adapting the novel Lovecraft Country.

6. Speaking of TV adaptations, the official trailer for Good Omens has dropped, and yes, okay, usual white dude suspects, but it looks amazing.

Criticism & Debate

Indeed, we do have a comment policy.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
