Yesterday Was No-Post Monday

Sorry about No-Post Monday; my summer course starts tomorrow and I’m scrambling to get everything ready. I have a few links before I declare this No Post Tuesday.

* Eliza Dushku is twittering that Dollhouse renewal talks are going on as we speak. A better indication than if they weren’t.

* Miscellaneous Star Trek links:

* A fairly well-known story about TOS and MLK.
* Ultimately, then, “Star Trek” was prescient not for its futurism, with the Enterprise crew using communicators that look like flip-phones, but for exploring a universe absorbed with pop-culture history. David Hadju on Star Trek and popular culture.
* Continuity errors as honeypot.
* “Star Trek sucked so bad I can’t even think of a title for my rant.”

* The secret history of Jughead’s hat.

* Goonies reunion video.

* Larry David is Woody Allen as Larry David in Whatever Works.

* Apocalypse and the academy in The New Yorker.

* And some sad news: Craig Arnold is now believed to have died while traveling in Japan.

Thursday, Thursday.

* My four-word post on marriage equality in Maine yesterday somehow turned into yet another epic comment thread about gay marriage. I just know this time we’ll hammer out agreement.

* Science fiction in the New Yorker: “The Slows” by Gail Hareven.

* Dollhouse “certain to be canceled.” Keep hope alive.

* Wolverine, despite by all accounts not being very good, gets a sequel.

* Craig Arnold update: they think they’ve found his trail.

* ‘MLA Urges Chairs to Focus on Adjunct Issues.’

* When the bomb goes off, everyone’s got one last thing to do before they die. A game.

Poet Craig Arnold has apparently gone missing in Japan while working on a book about volcanoes and the end of the world. Paper Cuts has details.
