|Yes, I am still obsessed with Pacific Rim. Fortunately, gingerhaze.tumblr.com is too.|
Dude, it’s been a long week. A good week, but a long one. So let’s all relax with some links and a nice cup of tea, shall we?
As always, feel free to shamelessly self-promote in the comments below, or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have something you want included next week.
1. The Atlantic asks a very important, and surprisingly hard question, “Where is the female Tony Soprano?”
2. Swiss artist Gus Pietro recently traveled the United States and was amazed by the varying density and emptiness of our country. His new photo series, “Merge”, seeks to examine that disconnect by placing images of New York City in barren places, like the Grand Canyon and Death Valley. It’s pretty rad.
3. Over on Women and Hollywood, apparently Claire Danes (everyone’s favorite CIA agent on Homeland) nearly quit acting because all the roles for women are crap.
4. Apparently someone finally did a study that shows that teenage girls on television are overly sexualized. As The Marysue says, “no duh.”
5. I am a little jealous of everyone who gets to go to San Diego Comicon this week, if only because Marvel is releasing their new short film about Agent Peggy Carter there. And I want it.
6. Andrew Garfield, who plays Spiderman in the current franchise, thinks that maybe recasting MaryJane is a good idea, and Michael B. Jordan is perfect for the role.
7. And, finally, here’s a video with puppets explaining Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, or the monomyth theory. It’s much more entertaining than I’m making it sound.
