Nodds & Nends: Supernatural, Cthulhu, and Peter Pan
Supernatural fan art from DeviantArt(ist) Renton1313. I love the paper cutout collages of this artist. So awesome, such great detail. Le sigh.
Have you thought about how you choose your next book? This blogger has. It is an interesting question. Usually I get my next books from other blogger suggestions, rapidly filling up my queue with the library. Sometimes I wander around the library on my lunch break picking up random books because the cover art interest me, or the font is that specific urban fantasy font (seriously, start noting the font on books certain genres have like only three that they use), or I randomly flip to the middle of the book and if that page is interesting I will get the book and start reading it from the beginning. Some times I find lists that people have pulled together, like this one on Peter Pan Retellings and I pick and choose from the list. So tell me, how do you choose your next book?
Check out this Cthulhu evening bag. I love when people take nerd fandom to the next level, anyone can come up with a t-shirt design, it takes real work to make something you could wear out on the town with a little black dress.
Books Without Any Pictures has a fun review of 50 Shades of Grey up on her blog in preparation for reading a parody of the same. And since I was on the subject of funny reviews of 50 Shades of Grey this person found all the funny one star reviews on Amazon and posted them. And to be fair, I’ll post this article about the effect of calling something Mommy Porn and why that is really the disgrace that has happened with regard to this book. Is it only stupid women who enjoy this book? Or perhaps there are some who enjoy a bit of a smutty beach read while understanding it’s not the next Handmaiden’s Tale (which I disliked FYI- the movie was worser (gag)).
Speaking of men who get the womens all hot and bother, what about the mens on Supernatural? In particular the angels. Castiel is my favorite of course. Mostly because his character is fabulous! Art by Kaiser-Mony.
