Internet Wanderings 03

  • Have you watched Fry and Laurie's Jeeves & WoosterAnnie Nichol's article reveals how you can take away something valuable from reading P. G. Wodehouse's original tales of outrageous 'indulgence and debauchery'. 
  • Do you love everything written by Cormac McCarthy? I do. And if you do too, Rohan Wilson's The Roving Party is definitely a worthwhile read. Sarah Drummond gives you the low down here. Brilliant Australian writing on both counts.
  • Julia Tulloh observantly shows how Beyoncé’s latest song and accompanying video clip is misleading and misrepresents the actual plight of women globally, despite what Beyoncé wants the girls of the world to think.
  • Was Chairman Mao telling fibs?
  • I'd be up for a little Young Goethe in Love. I wonder if they'll show him witnessing the beheading of Susanna Margaretha Brandt, hmm.
  • Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) claims that he invented 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', as a whole, as he spoke to Alice Liddell whilst rowing upon the Thames and upon its bank. Alberto Manguel believes its inception lies deeper within the human psyche.
  • Lisa Lebduska blames Facebook for the blatant illiteracy of so many students.
  • How much bullshit do you believe?

That's all for now. Go Red Sox
