On the one hand, I’m intrigued by the possibility that Hollywood is willing to take a risk like this, and make a cinematic version of a novel that doesn’t have a neat, easy single narrative. On the other, I’m very, very worried they’ll cram formulaic elements in to make it easier to write for cinema, miss the entire point of the different stories and generally just mess it...
Because this Seriously Needs to Stop
There’s been a recent smattering of blog posts and online discussions regarding creeper behaviour and strategies for dealing with it in productive ways. The discussions have actually been excellent, and there’s been lots of fantastic insight from victims-of-creepers, victims-of-full-blown-assault, ex-creepers, akward-but-harmless dudes, allies and more. Buuut one thing still keeps...
