Weekend Link Roundup

Life’s been a bit crazy in the Young household these last few weeks, but I promise a return to regularity after the holidays. In the mean time, have some more interesting links.


  • Key and Peele do another hard-hitting inner city school bit: Clortho’s Public Wizarding School. Fandom has pretty much ruined Harry Potter, but its existence is worth it for this skit if nothing else.
  • I don’t reject every modern work reflexively, but even if the 2016 all-female Ghostbusters wasn’t a slap in the face (I haven’t seen it), much of the cast and crew made it pretty clear they wanted it to be. Maybe that’s why the trailer for Stranger Things with Proton Packs Ghostbusters Afterlife seems so refreshing: It looks like someone wants to continue the story, not dismantle it or where it like a skinsuit.
About Joshua Young 45 Articles
Joshua M. Young lives in Columbus, Ohio with his wife, son, and two more feral cats than the optimal number of feral cats. (That is, zero.) He holds a Master of Divinity from Ashland Theological Seminary, and yes, he's quite aware that writing this kind of stuff isn't exactly what you'd expect from a trained theologian. A life long lover of science fiction and fantasy, one of his earliest memories involves some confusion with a Klingon Bird of Prey and an X-Wing in the middle of a theater showing The Search for Spock, and, once upon a time, he could select the desired Robotech novel from his bookshelf, in the dark, by the feel of its spine. (Don't ask why that was a necessary skill. He couldn't tell you.) He has been published in numerous anthologies, including Planetary: Mercury, Planetary: Venus, and Tales of the Once and Future King.
