Links to read instead of watching football

Because Mizzou is playing and I’m a bad alumna.

NPR’s “A Shot And A Book: How To Read In Bars”: A charming read about a man who reads to write about what he read in the hopes others may also read what he read, and why bars are the best location for said reading. Follow that?

Vox’s “The essential Stephen King: a crash course in the best from America’s horror master”: From the same author of the essay I’ve discussed earlier, this reads like a Stephen King syllabus. King has been widely covered lately, with It currently in its opening weekend and several adaptations in the works, and I’m all about it.

NYT’s “Harvey and Irma, Married 75 years, Marvel at the Storms Bearing Their Names”: How the Times managed to make hurricanes Harvey and Irma heartwarming I will never know. Also, this article answered a longtime question of mine – how the heck are hurricanes named, anyway?

Indiewire’s “Stephen King’s It: 6 Most Important Differences Between the Film and Stephen King’s Book: It is my favorite Stephen King book. So, naturally, I saw the movie opening night. While there were a few places where the movie was a bit clunky, overall I thought it was a success. It was so much fun, even though I will 100 percent rant to you about how Henry Bowers should not have died.

Indiewire’s “The 50 Best 2010’s Movie Posters (So Far)”: I will order all of these for my walls.

The Cut’s “Raise Your Hand If You’re Scared of Taylor Swift”: I’m very vocal about my distaste for T Swizzle. Her playing the victim, her “squad”, her using feminism only when it is convenient for her, her “Famous” fiasco against Kim and Kanye … the list goes on. This article made me laugh with maniacal glee.
