A Very Cranky Dr. Strange Round-Up: Tilda Swinton’s In; Rachel McAdams Rumored


I have a bad case of Cumberbatch Fatigue. It's due in part to his inexplicable omnipresence in all my favorite genre fiction, but mostly to his unimpressive turn as a white-washed Khan in Star Trek: Into Darkness. I'm not here to squeal with fannish excitement about his upcoming starring role in Dr. Strange. I'm here to grumpy-cat my way through the news about his equally clueless cast-mates.

"I am not finished. There is yet more of me."

Those of us who are fans of Neil Gaiman's work—and I know there are a lot of us 'round here—know how awesome his short story collection, Fragile Things, is.

Well, that story is being adapted into a film—a "musically charged" one, no less—directed by John Cameron Mitchell, and starring Elle Fanning.

Allow Neil Gaiman to Serenade You With the Honeyed Tones of His Song, “I Google You”

*immediately goes to google someone*

If you've never heard author Neil Gaiman speak, I highly recommend doing so should you get the chance. He's a wonderful orator, but as it turns out, that pleasantness translates to his singing voice as well (even if he doesn't think so). Gaiman and Amanda Palmer performed a special one-night show in Florida on Valentine's Day during which they performed his "I Google You," a different kind of sorrowful love song for the digital age.
