The Black Count is Being Adapted for a New Film!

Tom Reiss’s The Black Count, which details the true story of Général Thomas Alexandre Dumas (father of author Alexandre Dumas), is being adapted into a film directed by Cary Fukunaga (director of HBO’s True Detective).

No actors have been named so far, although some people are already speculating that Howard Charles may be considered for the lead. He’s known for playing the role of Porthos on the BBC’s Three Musketeers:

Oh wow! Though I like the Orlando Bloom idea instead.

I’m gonna go ahead and VETO that one.*

*If it was a simple case of mistaken names, Orlando Jones would be a fine pick.

Petition to ban old men from writing books just because they don’t know how to use an iPhone

Petition to have the youth in this country to actually educate themselves instead of spitting out some bullshit they read on some shitty post on facebook that’s untrue, and continues to spread like wildfire.

In 2012, young adults have set the record of completing both high school and college and are on course to become the most educated generation in America history. Maybe you should follow the example of ‘the youth in this country’ and do the same.

Psssst among the reasons for this is because both high school and college are becoming more and more basically compulsory if one wants to make a survivable income, so using completion of high school and college might not be the best bet as a metric of being educated.Let’s step back and talk about the internet instead, and the existence of things like wikipedia (for all its faults) and other wikia, of things like Coursera, of the most literate generation ever ( ) who are far more likely to read books not assigned for school or work than any preceeding generation (and yes that includes generations before the advent of TV and radio, see also much higher literacy)In short, the author of this book is on my eating list now.



The artist behind this is Arthur Tress.

After nearly a decade of drug war violence, a widespread movement of vigilante justice is sweeping across Mexico. Men and women from all over the country have taken the law into their own hands and formed citizen police, or “self-defense” groups. The movement is particularly strong in the southern Mexican state of Guerrero, where poverty, narcotics trafficking, and militarization have spawned bloodshed for decades. The citizen police of Guerrero are often at odds with government and army officials for their “vigilante” activity, yet many of the groups are technically legal due to the “Usos y Costumbres” clause in the Mexican constitution which grants indigenous communities a degree of autonomy.
