Guys, hydra are tiny water time lords that regenerate every twenty days! (Just ignore me and my weird, sciencey head canon).

Born Today: Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, September 5, 1946 – November 24, 1991) was a British singer-songwriter and producer, best known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of the rock band Queen. Learn more about this 2001 inductee at the Library and Archives.

Audio clip: Queen, “Killer Queen,” recorded in Tokyo, Japan in 1985. From the Frederick S. Boros Audio Recordings.

A day late, but happy birthday to Freddie Mercury! He would have been 68. One of the truly great voices; he is still missed.

And if you want to listen to a mind-blowing live performance, find Queen Rock Montreal. He’s a legend.

INFOGRAPHIC: Checking Out America’s Libraries
(Via Electric Lit)

I’m extremely proud to say that the Small Press Expo has now placed more than 1000 graphic novels from Independent publishers in Washington DC-area libraries as a part of our, now four year old, Graphic Novel Gift program.

And we are just getting started. I’m not going to be satisfied until SPX sponsored books are in a library in every state. And then every library, period.

Library-related infographics make me SO happy!

Thank goodness someone else noticed this and actually found the right screenshot of the Master (that I was too lazy to find). Good on you!

Lois Lane to star in a new YA novel. 

So cool!

She was beautiful, elegant. Like a tall clear glass filled with raw pasta.

16. For the first time in his life, he found himself imagining a future together with someone. He was embarrassed to tell her this but he had never really been in love with the women he had dated. “Well who would play me in this rom-com of your life?” she teasingly inquired. “You have such beautiful olive skin,” he crooned, “so you can be a person of color or racially ambiguous in the book but definitely a white woman in the movie.”


HIS GREATEST moment of Doctor Who fanboy-fantasy realization thus far came when he was called upon for the first time to operate the TARDIS, the homely 60s-era London police box that serves as the Doctor’s vessel for time travel. As he stood surrounded by set technicians explaining how to use it, Capaldi says, “I had to be very patient and not say to them, ‘I know exactly how to operate it. You don’t have to tell me a thing. Moon Man is here.’
