Next week marks the first full week of actual during-the-summer vacation in ten years. (Almost a full week, I should say — I have to go in one afternoon to teach a class.) I think I could get used to this “having help during summer deadlines” thing, although the “preparing for a week off ” part thing is murder.
So, a tiring week. And I’ve forgotten any postable ideas that briefly bubbled to the surface.
Instead, here are my two favorite post-Europeans, at least for today. One’s joined the Cult of America and the other’s technically still the Queen’s spy, after all. Also, is anyone else unsurprised that Craig Ferguson is a Lovecraft fan? Neil Himself does make an amusing point about HPL’s characters.
- Erin Palette is spending the week analyzing the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic cast as analogues to the classic D&D adventuring party. I’m curious whether she’s going to go cleric or ranger for Fluttershy. We shall see.
