As we continue our steady march through the year, and we enter the season of pumpkin spice, cobwebs, and witches’ hats, we give you a tasty Afternoon Snack filled with all the good things we could find.
If you are, like us, a fan of gay ice skating stories, definitely look into picking up Spinning by Tillie Walden! This interview with Tillie on Bookwitty is a great look into the author’s process and story while making Spinning. This is the real Yuri on ICE!!! story we’ve been looking for, but with ladies, y’all!!!
Untitled Goose Game looks like it will be pure joy and I cannot WAIT.
Professor Layton anime!!!! PROFESSOR LAYTON ANIME!!!!!!!!!!!!

During a time where emo indie-rock was associated with male artists like Conor Oberst, The Decemberists and Modest Mouse, Lewis gave the guys a run for their money and was a strong female presence in the scene.

SUBTLE!!!!!!
Harvey Weinstein is a trash person and this response to his proposed butchering of Princess Mononoke is truly the best.
The time Harvey Weinstein allegedly got owned by Studio Ghibli still rules. pic.twitter.com/VhBjkq6faj
