Many Open Threads upon you, and the rest of the comments to the days to come.
What goes on? The biggest news is the release of Marvel’s summer blockbuster Thor. Additional casting has been announced for the Hunger Games adaptation, with Wes Bentley joining Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks in major roles. Rolling Stone released its reader poll of the Top One-Hit Wonders of All Time, but you have to click through 11 slides to see them; sorry. I’m sorry.
(By the way, here’s something fun: Rolling Stone’s May 4th, 1980 cover story, a sneak peek inside The Empire Strikes Back. There goes an afternoon)
You want a Comment of the Week, perhaps? How about a never-before-awarded Commentariat Triumvirate – a three-way tie awarded to Boonton, Hawkmoth and Travis McClain? They have kept up a deep, engaging discussion in the comment thread of the Economics of the Death Star post. 100+ comments and still literate! And informative! Is that a record? Have we forged a whole new Internet from the ashes of the old?
Anything we missed? Sound off in the comments, for this is your … Open Thread.
