A Jane Austen video game? Crap does this mean I have to get a PS3. Wonder if they have it in a classy regency finish? #gaygeek

Oh John Green. How you make me laugh. Be my friend.

Super excited for this movie, but sad that Death is no longer the narrator.

There’s nothing quite as exciting as starting a new book

To all the people complaining about the new Gatsby cover vs the old Gatsby cover: Get the F over it. If it gets someone to pick up a book, I’m all for it. #endrant

You know you’ve had a #kindle too long when you are reading a print magazine, see a word you need to look up and touch the page expecting the definition to appear.

BBC2 Developing Wolf Hall & Bringing Up the Bodies miniseries

Be still my big geeky, period costume, Tudor-loving heart.

I loved the PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER book. Can’t wait for the movie.

Someone needs to write a “Flowers in the Attic” opera, but set it in like the 1800s or something like that. The Louise Fletcher movie is beyond redonk, but still very watchable.

Get More: MTV Shows

Reading “The Rook” by Daniel O’Malley right now and think it would be an awesome TV series. Sort of a mixture of “The Bourne Identity” meets “Dr. Who” with a dash of Douglas Adams.

Talk about perfect casting: Helena Bonham Carter as Miss Havisham.

People I Wish Had Twitter Accounts

Jane Austen - So we can hear her ever so subtle thoughts in all of the Austen fan fic, Pride & Predjudice and Zombies, etc.

Shel Silverstein - lines of his poetry are just built for twitter. ”If you are a pretender come sit by my fire.”

Andy Kaufman - just imagine the twitpic account.

The Founding Fathers - so they can set those dumb ass Tea Baggers straight about what they “really” intended.

Martha from Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” - The gin soaked rants would be brilliantly quotable.

"Men of the Stacks" take it off for the It Gets Better Project. More info (and pictures) here.

New X-MEN Trailer: must remember to breathe. Interesting that this is set in the 60s. didn’t know that from the early stuff.

BREAKING Trailer: X-Men: First Class - June 3rd

Directed by Matthew Vaughn. Starring James Mcavoy, January Jones, Rose Byrne, Michael Fassbender, Kevin Bacon, and Jennifer Lawrence.

Not unlike the Transformers 3 Super Bowl spot, this teaser employs a winning balance of just enough footage and pulsing soundtrack to give it a real sense of suspense, foreboding, and tension. Of all the recent Marvel previews (Thor, Capt America) this trailer may have been handled the best. Elsewhere, the CG looks thoroughly Marvel (a bit too comic book-y and cartoony for my tastes, but appropriate) and the period piece setting is intriguing but not too cumbersome (except for the JFK speech, that was a bit much). It’s got a well picked cast who are fitting into the roles, their age may take some getting used to. I’d hate for this to play out like X Men: The Teenage Years.
