Art, gender and the magic Pope – some weekend reading

Sharing is caring!

Hey hey hey, it’s Saturday! Time to watch cartoons in our pyjamas then curl up with a good book. Or to cram in some fun writing while we’re not busy trying to earn the pennies to pay for those Batman pyjamas (only kidding, I don’t have Batman pyjamas, I have Animal from the Muppets instead).

I keep meaning to make Saturday the day when I share cool links I’ve stumbled across during the week, for your entertainment and my lazy blogging. But then I think of something I really want to write about and that falls apart. Well not this week. So this week here’s some links:

Some beautiful pictures to look at – Chinese covers of Lord of the Rings books, courtesy of

Something to think about – a discussion of strong female characters from Dan Diego Comic Con, again via Tor.

Something to make you go wtf, and maybe inspire some writing – Dr Beachcombing on a real life sorcerer pope.

And finally something gloriously joyful to listen to, from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s The Heist, which is currently on heavy rotation on my iPhone:



Have a great weekend folks!
