Published by under Morning Link

public

“Audiences love familiar stories. When we’re deciding what movie to see, we have a tendency to breeze past original plots in favor of watching Peter Parker discover his puberty superpowers for the 18th time. The people who make our movies have grasped this, and that’s why cinemas are crammed with adaptations of books, comics, television shows, foreign movies, old movies, new movies, movies that came out in 2010, breakfast cereals, and so on.”

“The great thing about pop culture is that you usually know what to expect from it. As surely as the sun rises each day, Quentin Tarantino will direct a bloody, profanity-ridden foot fetish film, Alan Moore will write disturbing magical monster erotica, and Bruce Willis will play a relatable dude you should not under any circumstances fuck with. All is right with the world. But now and again, somebody doesn’t play by the rules, and everything we understand about the universe is thrown into question.”

“We all worry about packs of wolves, errant bears, and rogue sharks, even though this is technically the Internet and we should all be safe in here, so long as we never leave. But you shouldn’t ignore or underestimate Mother Nature, no matter how innocent and unassuming her avatar might be. If only because that’s exactly what she wants you to do.”

“A couple of days ago, Vulture ran a piece called Why Captain America Is Only Interesting If He’s a Prick, and it rubbed me the wrong way. At the same time, I sometimes look at myself and wonder who I am anymore, because back in the day it was always the bad boy who was interesting to me.”

“Eventually, Death will claim every one of us (we intend to begin every article with this reminder from now on). But that doesn’t mean we have to go down easily.
