- Remember THAT Torchwood casting spoiler? Yes? No? Maybe? Whatever the case, WE HAS A PICTURE. OH YES. Also, WE NOW KNOW SAID GUEST APPEARANCE WILL INVOLVE GAY.
- I went searching for Epipleptic Bicycle scans, to little avail, but I found something So. Much. Better. Behold! The entire thing on youtube! Read out loud by a person and everything! And other Edward Gorey books have been done, too! The reader's accent slips up a couple of times, but really, it's all good.
- Remember how book-to-movie adaptations can make people very distressed? Well, there's an adaptation of Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (a graphic novel based on her own experiences growing up in Iran in the 70s and 80s) about which I'm hopeful. Yes, the author is making it herself, which is one way of ensuring creative control. Her very distinct visual style (fairly stark black-and-white) seems to be remaining mostly intact, and there's a pretty cool voice cast lined up for the English release. And look, it won at Cannes.
I fangirl Marjane Satrapi madly, really. This is no secret.
