This magnificent example of the shop front pun double-wammy was captured on camera by yours truly in my local township.
Things I love about this:

a) the ‘A Cut Above’ hair stylist has been there for as long as I’ve lived here (almost a decade) and I’m pretty sure that without this inspired choice of name it would have gone out of business long ago, since it’s so tiny and inconvenient to access.
b) I can’t even tell if ‘Grate Fires of Sussex’ meant to put that pun there or if the owner didn’t even notice it… I really should go in and ask…
c) That this exists.

Bryan Fuller updates us on American Gods TV adaptation

stopitsgingertime:

On how the show will handle some of the novel’s odder moments:

You have to ground it in the emotional reality of what Shadow, or Wednesday, or Laura is experiencing in that moment. One of the exciting things for us in adapting this is that we get to expand characters, so Bilquis, who is only in a chapter of the book, then you don’t see her again, is a major player in this world. Laura, who is kind of lurking in the background, she’s a major player in this world.

On developing the novel’s women characters for television:

One of the things that’s important for anybody adapting source material that is primarily a male buddy picture is to find ways to latch on to strong female characters in the piece and bring them to the forefront and celebrate their point of view alongside the men, otherwise it becomes a sausage party and it’s a singular point of view.

I AM DEAD. I AM DEAD, AND BRYAN FULLER HAS KILLED ME WITH ALL OF HIS CORRECT OPINIONS AND CREATIVE DECISIONS. BILQUIS IS GOING TO BE EXPANDED INTO A MAIN CHARACTER!!!!! ENTIRE EPISODES FROM LAURA’S PERSPECTIVE!!!! I AM NOT BREATHING!!!!
