Randomness for 8/11

1) Gambit’s costume is completely ridiculous, so this guy made one. h/t James Nicoll.

2) If David Lynch directed Dirty Dancing. Video.

3) Black leather dragon backpack. I’d get this, but it would make the toddlers in the Starbucks cry.

4) What your favorite 80s band says about you. This is better than it has a right to be.

5) More dice shaming!

6) Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie: the same movie.

7) Was HP Lovecraft a good writer? Nick Mamatas makes the argument that he was.

Mirrored from Harry Connolly. You can comment here but not there.

I didn't realize it was necessary to argue that Lovecraft was a good writer. He is still published to this day, he influenced uncountable numbers of writers and transformed his own genre to the point that he's become an adjective. One may not LIKE his writing (or might; I do), but he was obviously doing SOMETHING right in his writing.

This was an attempt to specify exactly what he was doing right.
