This article is interesting on several levels:
- Goodreads has trolls, who knew?
- It helps one understand how we could have gotten to g.a.m.e.r.g.a.t.e (if the placid pools of literary sites are like this, how could we not?)
- The Internet makes people do surprising things (like visiting a troll’s house :-))
- It was great to be reminded of one of my favorite computer memes, Eliza (via a roundabout route)
Also, since the article is authored by an actual, um, author, it’s well written and easy to read.

I’m sure there’s a karmic force at work here 🙂
Amusing deconstruction of Frozen (I’m reliably informed any of you with kids will have seen it 2^123 times).
I only consciously spotted about 10% of these while watching the movie myself but the others definitely contributed to the “why on earth do people think this is a good movie?” feeling I was left with. I get the desirable social message and all that but it would be better served being carried by a better film.
Here’s why Frozen maybe wasn’t that great of a movie
For a while there, it seemed like all anyone wanted to talk about was the movie Frozen. Elsa. Building a snow man. Letting it go. Lip syncing. Saying things like Disney Animation is better than Pixar now. Yadda and yadda. But was the movie that good? Is it a Disney classic? CinemaSins decided to take an unpopular opinion and reveal everything hilariously wrong with Frozen.
