Or, “miscellaneous fannish links of neatness.”

Buzzfeed compiles fanart of Anderson Cooper. Oh, hey, some of those are awfully familiar. (#15 is one of mine.)

“A Whole New World” as sung by Jigglypuff and Professor Oak. Or at least, fans doing solid impressions of them. The Internet: it’s a thing of beauty.

Q&A with Rebecca Tushnet about copyright and transformative works. A good overview of the subject.

“….during the teens, 1920s, and early 1930s, almost one quarter of the screenwriters in Hollywood were women. Half of all the films copyrighted between 1911 and 1925 were written by women.” Our forgotten film history.

Media monopolies: why “Mrs. Robinson” has been played enough times to air for 32 years back-to-back nonstop.

The high-tech digital makeup used to get one (originally buff) actor playing both pre- and post-superserum Captain America.

And the most awesome thing to break in the past few days: the new Red Dwarf trailer is out! A shot-by-shot breakdown, for anyone who wants to get as much mileage out of the tiny clips as possible. (*cough* Such as myself.)

Being a screenwriter in the 1920’s was how a young Russian refugee named Alisa Rosenbaum got her start. We know her better as Ayn Rand. It’s also interesting that this was the period of Hollywood where it was predominantly run by (relatively) conservative businessmen.

The Captain America FX article is neat.
