  1. Project Title For Peer Review: Canine-Human Hybrids Specialized for Military Tracking

    A Grant Review Summary Statement for Jupiter Ascending.

    In the real world, peer review determines whether scientists receive funding or publish their work in scientific journals. Without positive evaluations from the members of a grant review board, a scientist won’t be able to science for very long, because she’ll be out of money when her grant proposal isn’t funded. In the fictional world, there are a lot of scientists who are shockingly bad at science. If only their grant proposals had been reviewed by a panel of qualified scientists…

  3. Things We Saw Today: What “Beyoncé Voters” Really Want From the Government

    1. To stop being called "Beyonce Voters," I'd guess.

    Despite what willfully ignorant political pundits would have you believe, all the single ladies want the same things out of government as everyone else. (via Mic on Facebook)

  4. Holy Tesseract, You Can Now Read a Never-Before-Seen Passage From A Wrinkle in Time

    This seems fitting.

  6. The Mary Sue Interview: Bitten Returns To Bewitch You In Its Second Season

    Bitten returns to Syfy tonight for its second season, but it's not all sexy werewolves this time around. Now Elena and the Pack have something a little more serious to deal with - a mysterious and potentially malefic coven of witches.

  7. The Mary Sue Interview: Greg Weisman on His YA Adventure Kickstarter, Rain of the Ghosts

    Greg Weisman is probably best known for his television work, producing amazing animated shows like Gargoyles, Spectacular Spider-Man, Young Justice and Star Wars Rebels.

Both books are about Rain Cacique, a thirteen year old girl living in the Caribbean who has the ability to see ghosts.

  9. The Mary Sue Interview: Daredevil‘s Deborah Ann Woll Speaks For Us, Says We Need More Strong Ladies Repping Marvel & DC

    Karen Page-ing more great female characters!

    It’s been quite the week for women in the superhero realm. Not only did we lose Michelle MacLaren, our original director for Wonder Woman (sigh), but we also gained a new one in Patty Jenkins (yay!). But just because we got our way in the end (props to DC for keeping with a promising lady director and not going with some less-than-wonderful male name!) doesn’t mean we shouldn’t stop campaigning for more gender equality within the genre. Just ask Karen Page.

  10. Jenkins’ Wonder Woman to Be “Character-Driven”; But Aren’t All Good Films?

    Is "character-driven" code for "women's movie?"

    We were thrilled that despite the sudden departure of Michelle MacLaren from Warner Bros's Wonder Woman, that they quickly filled the director slot with another talented female director, Patty Jenkins. However, as word of what was actually behind the "creative differences" between Warner Bros and MacLaren has been released by industry insiders, I was left with mixed feelings about the project.

  11. Steven Universe Recap: “Shirt Club”

    In which this whole “airing episodes out of order” thing finally feels noticeable.

    Alright, turns out we had one more episode pushed back by the Steven Bomb (I think, according to Matt Burnett’s post – Google lists the next two episodes as being waylaid season 1 episodes as well, but let’s take that with a grain of salt). And while “Open Book” and “Story for Steven” straddled a line of “would’ve flowed really well here but work well as stand-alones,” today’s episode is pretty substantively hurt by where it ended up.

  13. Lucasfilm’s Response to a 7-Year-Old’s Request to Let Jedi Get Married Is Adorable

    "I do" or do not. There is no try.

    Lucasfilm sensed in Colin Gilpatric much fear that his desire to become a Jedi Knight and desire to get married would one day conflict, so they intervened with a letter advising the young Padawan on how to love without turning to the dark side, and it was perfect.

  14. Archie Vs. Sharknado Crossover Event Proves There’s No Limit to How Ridiculous the World Can Get

    It's a "shark-tacular." No, really. That's what Syfy and Archie Comics are calling it. The puns, THEY BURN.

    I'll admit it. I went to a Sharknado viewing party, complete with shark cupcakes and a drinking game. But the Sharknado franchise has just hit maximum ridiculousness. Dare I say...it's jumped the shark?

  16. [UPDATED] Members of Gamergate Planned to “Infiltrate” Calgary Expo to Actively Disrupt Panels, Calgary Expo Has Evicted Them

    You know, for a loosely defined group who's constantly claiming they don't have nefarious purposes, they sure do like casting themselves as the villain.

  17. Claire Dearing Locks Eyes With Indominus Rex in New Jurassic World Poster

    A Face/Off 65 million years in the making.

    I feel like Jurassic World might be well on its way to saturating the market for trailers and posters, but I'm a sucker for Bryce Dallas Howard, and Claire Dearing looks like a stone-cold badass here.

  19. Amy Poehler Shines in New Inside Out Clip; Pixar Announces Cannes Screening

    A Major Emotion Picture

    This might be my favorite Inside Out clip yet, if only because it shows the range of emotions that all people experience, rather than continuing to look at stereotypically gendered feelings (Dads don't always default to anger, and Moms aren't always the better communicators). Also, Amy Poehler. Lots and lots of Amy Poehler.
