  • A long, nicely put-together piece about Ain’t It Cool News proprietor Harry Knowles. I’ve always thought Knowles was a fun (and maybe even important) figure — a Forry Ackerman type who ended up influencing the culture in a bunch of interesting ways. Just one example: Ain’t It Cool News was about the first website to allow user comments on every article. That I can recall, at any rate.
  • Kirsten Mortensen’s new book, “Loose Dogs,” is out now and on sale. I’ve read it and I loved it. Here’s Paleo Retiree on one of her previous books. Here’s me on another.
  • RIP Lawrence Auster. Here’s a long tribute on V Dare (H/T Paleo Retiree).
  • Looking forward to checking out this ebook comprised of material drawn from Ferdinand Bardamu’s great/corrosive/inspiring blog In Mala Fide. Here’s a review by Spike Gomes.
  • This guy has a pretty bitchin’ collection of giallo movie posters.
  • Excellent piece by Jack Donovan that’s like a sprint through the often-baffling obstacle course of contemporary culture. Donovan’s been up to some interesting things of late. Here he is on a podcast discussing gay marriage.
  • RIP Jess Franco.
  • Happy to learn that Criterion will be restoring (and presumably releasing, in some format) 18 of Satyajit Ray’s films. You can currently stream Ray’s great “The Home and the World” on Hulu+.
  • Are “food deserts” really to blame for obesity? And what to make of the concept of “food justice”?
  • Terrific blog focusing on the golden age of illustration art.

  1. Great set of links, tks.

    FWIW, here’s a thing I wrote some years back about how I first fell for the movies of Jess Franco.

  2. I’m much more of a trash-poetry fan these days than I was when I wrote that blogposting. I’ve come to my senses.

    To address obesity, we should reform the food deserts to make them *actual* food deserts. Mike Bloomberg can lead the way.
