Hello LJ! Here are some good long reads for your Saturday afternoon. <3

* On empathy.

* On gendered differences among unreliable narrators.

* On the tragedy of the Winter Soldier.

* On how the Muppets defined Generation X.

* On the intersection of video games and literature.

Not a long read, but I like my Free Will Astrology for this week: "Here's my report on your progress. You are not struggling to embody a delusional state of perfection as it is imagined by other people. Rather, you are becoming an ever-more soulful version of your idiosyncratic self, evolving slowly but surely. You are not dazedly trudging along a narrow track laid down by thousands of sheep. Instead, you are lively and creative as you bushwhack a path for yourself through the wilderness. To celebrate this ongoing success, Pisces, I suggest you get yourself a new power object that symbolizes your inventive devotion."

Also not a long read, but CERN may have discovered a tetraquark!

And Flying Higher got some reviews. :)

And Nicky is being very playful, so that is all for now!

That guy's analysis of CATWS is frelling brilliant. Where'd you find that?

I read fast! And I subscribe to Hello, Tailor's RSS feed (she's female, btw) - she does lots of great pop culture analysis. :)

I wonder if there's an LJ feed for that RSS. I don't have a separate RSS reader. Then again, I don't read the blogs I have up...

Thanks, tho. That was brilliant.
