Catch-up items from what was a very hectic last seven days:
- Probably a good thing they were Buddhists.
- Crawdaddy, one of the music magazines I grew up with, is now an on-line publication after a several decade absence. (Via.)
- I might have appreciated this article on SF writers without the references to them being “deviant” or “crazy” thinkers.
- Speaking of SF, James Dryden asks what happened to the SF that questioned the world around us while Pop Matters asks if serious SF film is dying. (Both via.)
- Also recent SF related, reclusive author Cormac McCarthy supposedly will appear on Oprah June 5 to talk with her about The Road.
- I don’t know if this is a commentary on the state of the particular artist or the music business today. Either way, sad is an understatement. (Via.)
- Ray Bradbury gives an interesting take on Fahrenheit 451 I had never considered before.
- John Scalzi, from whom this came, put it best: Don’t blog your own trial, you moron.
