Three Things Make a “Post”

Let’s start with the delightful “blog” of “unnecessary” quotation marks. Along with the proliferation of apostrophes where no apostrophe needs to be, we see “quotation marks” all over the place. Someone is keeping track and commenting dryly on them.

I find this one fascinating: The Book Depository Live. Watch in real time as people all over the world buy books. Why I should be mesmerized by seeing someone buying Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys in Sweden, I don’t really know. It’s the magic of the WWW.

And a link for Shakespeare buffs to add to their bookmarks: Shakespeare and Film: A Microblog. Great source of news on new and old movie versions, dvd releases (including David!! Tennant’s!! Hamlet!!!), and useful YouTube clips.

  1. HA! Just went to the Book Depository link and saw someone buy “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance, Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!”

    I don’t know what the book is about, but the title and description “features the text of Jane Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice with scenes of bone crunching zombie action” made me howl!

    • I haven’t read it, but I’ve seen it at Bolen’s. It starts something like “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in want of brains will go out and kill many people in order to get some” (I’m not quoting directly, but you get the idea). I think there’s going to be a movie.
