Friday Five (hold tight)

“Strangle facists with the chains they would have you wear.”

“Strangle facists with the chains they would have you wear.”

It’s the third Friday of November. That means it’s NaNoWriMo time and I’m frantically writing every day.

Welcome to my Friday Five: Only the top five (IMHO) stories of the week and five videos (plus notable obituaries and a recap of my posts).

Stories of the Week:

THE 50 BEST SUPERHERO MOVIES OF ALL TIME.

95% of corporate earnings go to dividends and stock buybacks ($1 trillion a year). That is money that used to go into R&D, wages, pension programs etc. Now it goes to Wall street and the top echelons of the income ladder.

How Facebook Figures Out Everyone You’ve Ever Met.

The Fungus That Turns Ants Into Zombies Is More Diabolical Than We Realized.

America’s ‘Retail Apocalypse’ Is Really Just Beginning. It’s not really Amazon and other online shopping, it’s the mountains of debt all the retail chains amassed buying one another.

In Memoriam:

The Strange, Sudden Death (65 years ago) of the Author of Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny.

Vincent Warren, love of poet Frank O’Hara’s life, passes away at 79.

Things I wrote:

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live in Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
