A New Video and Other News

First, a few quick links of note:
1. From the BBC News Magazine: "H.P. Lovecraft: The Man Who Haunted Horror Fans." (Thanks to wellinghall!)
2. From CNN: "Will the Mystery of Amelia Earhart Be Solved?"
3. Newspaper Rock has several new articles reacting to the forthcoming Lone Ranger film and updates about Johnny Depp's portrayal of Tonto.


As a "sneak peek" into my "Taking Harry Potter Seriously" course at The Mythgard Institute, the entirety of my third lecture is now online at YouTube.

This lecture is on "Harry Potter, The British Schooldays Novel, and The Chamber of Secrets."

Thanks for the BBC History link! Ramsey Campbell is always worth reading on the subject of HPL.

And congrats on the video!

Re: Johnny Depp with a crow on his head.
That's the sort of thing I expect to see on stage when I go to a Black Metal concert.

ROFLOL! So true, so true.

Are we sure Tim Burton isn't involved with this picture somehow? (Not that I usually have an issue with Burton, but...)
