Hey gang! It’s been a while! How is everyone, good? Good.

Here’s a round-up of interesting links and insightful videos I’ve enjoyed over the last several weeks. Take a look and, if you could, let me know in the comments which (if any?) of these links you found interesting or helpful. I would appreciate the feedback so I can tailor these posts to be more beneficial to you!

Here we go:

Let’s close out with an extra-large slate of videos for your lunchtime viewing:

1. I read House of Leaves more than 15 years ago, and I can still remember the very real paranoia and unsettledness that the story and its writing style gave me. It’s not for everyone–there was definitely some “adult”/inappropriate content in there, so I don’t recommend it for everyone. But I agree with this video that it’s one of the most unique reading experiences I’ve ever had.

2. Is this a pretty accurate jab at Doctor Who? Yes. Yes it is.

3. The FEE folks make another good point about how much questionable behavior we gloss over in fictional entertainment because “it’s the good guy doing it.” This time, they focus on Batman’s rampant violations of Gothamites’ privacy:

4. Gen-X anthem? Let’s GOOOOOOOO!!!

5. Another great FEE video on how Avengers: Age of Ultron is a lot more important than most MCU fans realized, and how it has quite a bit to say about our current culture:

6. And finally, what may be my new favorite music video on YT–turning the soundtrack of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time into a 30-minute prog-rock experience. OUT. STANDING.

That’s all I’ve got, folks. Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back next week. (No really, I mean it this time.)
