Jimmy Carter is ‘radioactive,’ and NYT makes sure of it!
Jimmy Carter has been exiled from mainstream political life, and the Democratic Party, because of his position on one subject, Palestine. When he said that Israel practices apartheid, back in 2006, he was paddled by Wolf Blitzer, Al Franken and Terry Gross. Now Israeli officials use the word whenever they please. The Times is a full participant in Carter’s shameful and tragic excommunication.

B-List: The Spring Collection | Rivers of Grue
Keeper has decided, in his infinite wisdom, to compile a list no self-respecting horror aficionado should be without. Fifty two forgotten classics (that’s one a week for an entire year and split into four seasons) which won’t appeal to everyone but which deserve to be seen by anyone with a penchant for the macabre. Many of these flicks are best known for their lucid box-art from a time when VHS was booming and horror was enjoying something of a heyday. It’s an idiot’s guide basically, compiled by one such idiot and shameless B-movie fanatic for your perusal. There is no fifty two-one rundown, no chronological order, just a whole host of forgotten diamonds in the rough which deserve a second visit.

Two Monks Invent Byzantine Art
the important thing to remember if you’re drawing Mary is that her whole eyes and face line up in a perfect T surrounded by empty space and Jesus is just furious with her
