28 entertaining and thought-provoking YA novels that even adults will love

Amazon; Alyssa Powell/Insider Young adult fiction is written and marketed for teens from 13-18 years old. But adults love reading YA books too because they're important, accessible, and fun. Here are the best YA novels for adults, including "Clap When You Land" and "Six of Crows." For the first few years of my 20s, I kept it a secret that I still loved young adult books, fearing I'd be judged for enjoying stories with adolescent protagonists and problems. As I met more YA fans, I ...

Nirvana sued over thirty-year-old t-shirt design featuring a 1949 illustration

This German Shepherd reacts to drug words like "cocaine" in the most hysterical way

Dante is a retired-police-dog-turned-canine-comedian who lives with TikToker Davey Rutherford in Queensland, Australia. And his reactions to drug-related words are hysterical. In this first video, he casually looks off to the side, as if he's lost in his own thoughts, until his human rattles off a grocery list: "Bread, milk, pasta, eggs, mayo, cocaine." — Read the rest

The Howling at 40: a horror movie that gave us something to chew on

Joe Dante’s sly and smart breakout, about a reporter uncovering a colony of werewolves, was a fun ride that had space for satire“I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked …”So begins Allen Ginsberg’s radical poem Howl, which upon close study has absolutely nothing to do with werewolves. And yet it appears on a reporter’s desk in Joe Dante’s horror classic The Howling, one among many blink-or-you’ll-miss it visual jokes that Dante tucks into the movie, ...

What Chance Does Kong Have? Not Even Hell Can Kill Godzilla

There are plenty of long-running series out there, but few can match the quantity Godzilla boasts. With over 30 features to date (not counting anime projects or the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong ), the big lizard sits in rarified territory with the likes of James Bond and Zatoichi. He’s been around a while. And given the “vs” nature of so many of those sequels, it’s safe to say we’ve seen the guy get in a lot of fights. It’s also safe to say he survives most of them. So the idea of sending him...

Verdict review - empathy and urgency in convincing domestic abuse drama

Raymund Ribay Gutierrez’s taut drama shows a Filipino legal system more concerned with expediency than justice as a woman takes her violent husband to courtJustice is not delayed but could still be denied in this arresting Filipino movie, which tracks a case of domestic abuse with such conviction, it is often easy to forget it’s staged drama rather than documentary. The first half-hour is especially frantic and immersive as it begins with the assault in question. Hard-up Manila mother Joy (Max E...

The Fairness Principle

[“The Divine Comedy: The Opera” by Paolo Miccichè and Antonio Mastromattei*] In 1302, poet and politician Dante Alighieri was exiled from Firenze, where he served as one of six priors governing the city. Dante’s political activities, including the banishing of several rivals, led to his own banishment. What goes around comes around? The Divine Comedy was his decade-plus journey and work. You may have heard of Alighieri's magnificent opus in 100 chapters or canti. Would he had written it, had he ...

En banc Second Circuit needs 120 pages and five opinions to sort out whether NY first-degree manslaughter qualifies as a federal "violent crime"

I generally do not closely follow lower federal court rulings about what state convictions qualify as predicates for sentencing enhancement under the Armed Career Criminal Act ("ACCA") or the career offender sentencing guidelines. I have a hard time just keeping up with the many Supreme Court ACCA cases, and I have previously suggested in this post a few years ago that modern ACCA jurisprudence must reside as some level of hell in Dante's Inferno because this caselaw is so dang inscrutable.  But...

"The second refrigerator can be a homey holdover or the latest model. And, for many, it can be aspirational. It may fulfill a yen for storage space."

"For others, its contents may function as edible insurance policies during lean years. And there are countless other reasons for a second fridge: frequent entertaining; storing kimchi or other specialties that take time to age; a tendency toward hoarding; or simply the cost of getting rid of a refrigerator....

Dante’s Descendant Wants Poet’s Conviction On Corruption Charges Reversed

In 1302, caught on the wrong side in one of Florence’s perpetual factional struggles, Dante Alighieri was fined and banished on a probably trumped-up charge of corruption in political office; summoned home from Ravenna the following year, he refused to come, and his sentence was commuted to death by burning. Now Dante’s great-great-many-times-great-grandson, astrophysicist Sperello di Serego Alighieri, is working to get his ancestor exonerated. – The Guardian

Rarely-Seen Illustrations of Dante’s Divine Comedy Are Now Free Online, Courtesy of the Uffizi Gallery

We know Dante’s Divine Comedy—especially its famous first third, Inferno—as an extended theological treatise, epic love poem, and vicious satire of church hypocrisy and the Florentine political faction that exiled Dante from the city of his birth in 1302. Most of us don’t know it the way its first readers did (and as Dante scholars do): a compendium in which “a number of medieval literary genres are digested and combined,” as Robert M. Durling writes in his translation of the Inferno. These lit...

Kevin Smith has been working on some version of Clerks III since at least 2017, and now it looks like he’s finished the first draft.

Smith took to Instagram to post a snippet of the new script’s first page, and while it really doesn’t tell us much, it’s bound to interest fans. Behold, part of the first page of the Clerks III script! The page cuts off befor...
