    3 hilarious Robin Williams stand up specials you can watch in full right now

    I wrote a brief thing for micdotcom. Williams was a force of nature and the entertainment industry and the world will be so much worse off without him. His career spanned so long and touched so many people, it’s wild to think of the shared reference points we all have because of this man. Jack and Hook are wildly regarded as not good movies, but when you’re just the right age for these, does it really matter if they were “good?” He was good. Way better than good. I watched every episode of The Crazy Ones because a it was a half hour of Robin Williams every week. That alone was worth it.

  • "What first drew me to Weird Fiction is its link to fanfiction. One of the characteristics that Lovecraft typified about the genre as a whole was that it was a fluid space, a fictional playground where anyone could show up, grab a theme or a phrase or an idea from one of Lovecraft’s works, and run with it. Writers in the early Weird Fiction circles created fanfiction of one another’s stories as a matter of course, sometimes using and re-using lines from previous weird stories.

    The Cambridge definition of plagiarism, from which Davis and Padgett quote, addresses the issue of whether the accused plagiarist intended to deceive. But it does not address the intent to be transparent—the intent to boldly take your place in a literary circle and join hands across a century-wide and ever-expanding ring of horror writers who have been referencing each other’s works the whole time.

    Pizzolatto’s acknowledgment to his own depth to Ligotti isn’t the only thing that Davis and Padgett distorted. They apparently think that Kaavya Viswanathan’s notorious (and admitted) piecemeal theft of multiple writers is “far less offensive” than the eight lines of dialogue that Pizzolatto openly acknowledged was a homage to Ligotti.

    I guess when a female writer plagiarizes another female writer, it’s just not as culturally important, huh?"

    Aja, throwing so much shade at those guys who think True Detective is plagiarism. (via dailydot)
