    Not sure I agree with all of this, but I dig the term “viral economy of upworthiness.”

    I read an October 2013 Hollywood Reporter story about Cage, in a press conference with Chinese state television, bemoaning Hollywood’s refusal to cast Asian male actors in things. Cage says he’d like to someday work with Tony Leung, star of seven Kar Wai Wong movies. Cage says, “One of my goals is to have a base near mainland China.” Noted: Cage’s oddly Cobra Commander–ish use of “base,” rather than a word like “home,” and his oddly specific use of “near,” as if a base on mainland China would be unsuitable for his purposes. Do they not have hollow-outable volcanoes there?

    ALEX PAPPADEMAS - Irrational Treasure - an analysis of Nicholas Cage’s career over the last ten years.

    Unsurprisingly, it’s gold. Solid gold.

    Sepinwall looks back with show runner Graham Yost at one of the slower, more troubled, seasons of the show.

    That final episode though. Oof.

    Made for a Marathon: The Science of Long Distance Running →

    "That’s how it feels sometimes too. When the pace is quick but easy, when form flows, when the mind feels at a certain distance from the body, when it’s early and quiet, and there’s only the sound of breath, and feet flying."

    "Between life and work, and love and death, comes running. To continue with such a demanding regime under the heavy weight of grief might seem to some like punishment. On the contrary, it’s self-preservation."

    Two reasons why running is the best.

    The next issue of Headspace is out in a week. It’s written by Ryan Lindsay and illustrated by me. There’s also some great backmatter by Dan Hill. I’m pretty happy with how the issue turned out! Also, I have to mention that Chris Peterson and Marissa Louise are taking a break this issue, but you’ll all be getting your fix next month when they return.

    Headspace #2

    Shane chases his son through the labyrinthine battlefield of Max’s memories and fears. Will he find a way out, and can he trust that path?

    It’s currently available for Pre-Order on Comixology.

    Look at that effing cover and preview.

    When that tidal wave hits, it begins one of my favourite sequences in the comic. Ryan and Eric take the gloves off in this issue.

    As mentioned above, I also have some back matter in this issue — an essay on The Prisoner which you’ll all hopefully dig.

    Chris Kosek has done a beautiful job of designing the back matter pages.

    Check it! (Also pre-order, guys)
