ICYMI: Bryan Fuller on shipping

Hannibal’s Bryan Fuller Is Done With Your Anti-Ship BS

is a bit older now, but it’s a piece on Bryan Fuller’s reaction to some NSFW fan art, and then his reaction to the people who reacted. I’m not a huge fan of Fuller or his aesthetic, but I agree with him fully on this point. Be aware if you keep clicking past the article and on to Fuller’s like, there is a drawing of oral sex.

Here. Honestly, I could never see this at such proximity while in the theater.

Voting in our town

•October 8, 2020 • 21 Comments

Interesting graphic about voting in our town that popped up on FB today. (This may explain what I mean by “town” for those who are unfamiliar with the local usage.) It may be helpful to know that the total population of the town is about 11,000, so the number of voter registrations correspond pretty closely to the size of the electorate. Twenty-seven days to the election; absentee ballots may be requested until October 29th; voters may register in person up to and including the day of the election. The GOP and the Dems are still fighting out in court whether ballots that arrive at the town up to the Saturday after election day can be counted. Given the high rate of covid-skepticism around here — I think on top of all of this, there will be plenty of people who vote in person — this election looks like it will be extremely high participation.

This is the first time that I’ve really felt grief about this — there was going to be an NT Live of the play. Lots of other details there as well. On the whole (and with limited knowledge of the circumstances) I’ve never felt Armitage suffered from lack of luck but that is a real blow.

Things I did not know about Tolkien’s views on sex

This is a very interesting read, even apart from the news that apparently the new Tolkien series on Amazon will have nude scenes.

Hopefully all that slash fanfic writing will finally pay off.
