u know where i'm at, u know where I be, u in the blog just to linky 🎵 

If you missed part one of our massive link roundup to catch up on news and such, that's here. Going a lot shorter for part two

/Film on the 20th anniversary of Boogie Nights
This is Not Porn Sigourney Weaver with a pumpkin
/i09 Jeff Goldblum riffing on the meaning of "Ragnarok" - I was personally alarmed to see this whole story this morning because I feel like I knew all this classic mythology stuff when I was in diapers and I KNOW we learned some of it in school. Is mythology not taught anymore? Weird cause kids tend to love it (since there are superpowers, monsters, etcetera)
Jezebel a fine interview with famous primatologist Jane Goodall about her work, the new documentary about her, and climate change

Film School Rejects 35 things we learned from Edgar Wright's Baby Driver commentary
AV Club Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood on filming Gerald's Game, another Stephen King adaptation that people are actually liking (what is happening?)
Coming Soon Director Taiki Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Thor Ragnarok) is very coy about whether or not he'll direct the long gestating live action remake of anime classic Akira but if he does, he won't be casting non-Asians. So if they must make this movie, let's hope he gets the job.
Playbill Idina Menzel didn't want to write a memoir so her sister wrote a book about their lives "Voice Lessons: A Sisters Story"
/Film Corey Haim & Corey Feldman, teen idols of the late 80s, are getting the Lifetime movie treatment
W Magazine Cara Delevingne is now an author ("Mirror Mirror") and a brunette
The New Yorker "Everything that I'm afraid might happen now that I've lost my headphones"

Congrats to the MacArthur Genius Grant Winners.
The 24 recipients for 2017 have been named who will each receive the grant of $625,000 which is a lot of change for most writers and artists and performers. Celebrities of course make truckloads of money but that's much different than toiling away for your craft in most arts careers. Twenty four recipients from many different kinds of field were chosen so let's just list those in the arts: Annie Baker (playwright), Rhiannon Giddens (musician), Taylor Mac (performance artist ♥︎), Yuval Sharon (opera producer), Tyshawn Sorey (composer), and Jesmyn Ward (writer)

I don't recall learning any mythology in school but maybe it just did not interest me. Prior to the Marvel movies, I knew that Thor was Norse god of thunder but did not know word Ragnarok. I am not planning any research prior to seeing the movie. My nephew was really into mythology when he was about 10 years old, I assume it was mentioned in school and then he borrowed books from the library.

Mythology should be taught in school and they could easily made relevant to 21st century children because they are the inspiration for so many comic books and movies.

I am all in for a Carla Gugino vehicle (just saying that makes me smile).

I love Carla Gugino (since Troop Beverly Hills, y'all!), but her career has been such a head-scratcher. I mean, she co-stars in big-budget blockbusters (Night at the Museum, San Andreas, etc.) so is probably a multi-millionaire at this point; yet she seems like a character actress at heart, which explains her detours into character-driven TV (like Karen Cisco, Political Animals) and plays. Her continued success as a journey(wo)man actress is inspiring.
