Read. Consume. Die.
I love LOST and always will, and this article comes close to telling you the whys and hows of that love – http://grantland.com/hollywood-prospectus/lost-legacy-ten-year-anniversary-abc/

These numbers on the OG TMNT boggle the mind – they also inspire me like crazy – on making your own comics – http://geekout.blogs.cnn.com/2011/08/31/thinking-of-making-your-own-comic-book-read-this-first/

TRIGGER WARNING: dead children in this story – and you might wonder why I read stuff like this but as a teacher, I need to know how some kids/families are doing it, I need to know why some kids come in angry, why they are upset, why they are broken before 9am – that someone could neglect being a parent so hardcore, and yet have 6 kids, does my head completely in – my wife told me not to read this article and she was right, this stuff just makes me angry way before it makes me sad – http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/case-of-starving-twins-and-how-their-11yearold-sister-tried-to-save-them/story-fnn8dlfs-1227076269742?nk=a5159f14307d0cf9131ba4c68eb564a6

And now for something lighter: the definition of first world problems as people worry about seeing that someone is typing on their end but not knowing what they’re typing/why it’s taking so long/OH GOD, WHY DID THEY STOP?! – this makes me laugh but I also completely feel it – social interactions begin neuroses and anxiety, why we brought social media into our homes, so we could feel this way 24/7 oftentimes baffles me – http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/31/fashion/texting-anxiety-caused-by-little-bubbles.html?referrer=&_r=2

“On Mars, for example,  sound will be higher in pitch.” – huh, the more you know – and other science/space facts – http://www.iflscience.com/10-space-myths-we-need-stop-believing-ls-currently-fact-checking

I love reading about process and muse and craft from people I admire – Snyder, Cloonan, and Vaughan step up at NYCC to discuss how they make the donuts – http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=56171

CHINATOWN will always be my jam – lotta high quality chatter on this page put together by Cinephilia about and around this classic flick – absorb, learn, replicate on your own scale – http://www.cinephiliabeyond.org/the-forty-year-rule-chinatown/?w3tc_note=flush_browser_cache

Proof you can write any plot twists or contrivances you want, because people are nuts and anything can happen with them around – mother arrested after her 4yo took bags of her heroin to school – imagine your 4yo ODing at school because some other little kid brought baggies of horse and your kid didn’t know and hoovered it up thinking it was sherbert – imagine being the parent, imagine being the teacher – imagine – oof – http://www.mediaite.com/online/mother-arrested-after-4-year-old-passes-out-her-heroin-at-day-care/
