Wednesday Night Links: Žižek, Affleck, and More
* ‘This is why, back to The Dark Knight Rises, the only authentic love in the film is Bane’s, the “terrorist’s,” in clear contrast to Batman’: Žižek (or someone claiming to be Žižek) reads The Dark Knight Rises.
* What everybody gets wrong about Jekyll and Hyde. Bracket that “everybody” and it’s a decent reading of the novel.
* After Wade Michael Page, the suspect in the Wisconsin Sikh temple shooting, was fired from a Harley Davidson shop in 2004, he left behind an application to join the Ku Klux Klan. What’s on the KKK application form?
* And July was the hottest month ever recorded. Enjoy your apocalypse.
