In other news, another review is coming soon.  I promise!  In the meantime, check out The Artifice, a new-ish online communications journal that’s amassed a ton of compelling stuff.  I’ve already read articles about Nickelodeon’s new retro programming block, Superman as a Christ figure (a claim I’ve always been skeptical of, but which is well-presented in the linked article), and the enduring awesomeness of text adventure videogames.  I’ve got another waiting on the persistence of Lovecraft in pop media!  Woo!
