Cool Shit 3/11

Look, Back to the Future was a good movie, but the blossoming fandom around it in recent years seems somewhat bizarre to me. It was popular, and a classic, but it doesn't hold up to cultural phenomenon that some people seem to be pushing. A documentary might be nice, but as a special extra on a DVD at best.

Sam Simon, one of the principles behind the Simpsons passed away. Here's a look into why he was so great, and why he wasn't recognized early on as one of the bigger voices behind its success.

Anyone interested in the new Daredevil series on Netflix?

Or maybe you're just in the mood for Pixar's latest, Inside Out?

I'm not sure what to make of this news coming from FOX about suspending the pilot for the remake of Luther. On one hand, it was pretty obvious to everyone that finding an actor like Idris Elba wasn't going to be easy, but on the other hand, it's somewhat heartening to hear that they at least are taking it relatively seriously enough to try to find a good fit (though the Marlon Wayans suggestion/rumor is frightening).

Back in college, in a 3 month period, I was attacked by no less than 4 dogs. While I don't think I was antagonizing them, who knows for sure? I just wish this piece on how to survive a dog attack had come out 20 years ago.

All this talk of legalization getting your weed juices flowing, but not sure how to go about scoring some of the stuff? Here's a helpful piece to get you started down the drug path.
