1.Beautiful Tomboys of the 1930s | Messy Nessy
“I stopped at a photograph of an androgynous woman taken by Marianne Breslauer, a name unfamiliar to me. As I began googling her work, my screen was soon taken over by black and white images revealing her captivation with the elegant 1930s tomboy style, which was finding its niche right around the time Marianne had decided to pick up a camera.”

Beautiful collection of women dressing tomboyish.

2. 7 Reasons Why Wynonna Earp is Doing Everything Supernatural did Wrong, Right | Dork Shelf
“If you’ve seen a single episode of Supernatural you won’t need me to explain why people are making comparisons between it and Wynonna Earp. Both shows are about two siblings (one rough and tumble, one sweet and studious) who have been pulled apart by circumstance after their shitty and violent childhoods. Both shows are about the identities the siblings have been forced to inherit because of their family legacy as monster hunters and both shows have demons, legendary guns, sexy people, and witty one-liners. They are similar in content and aesthetic, but despite the overwhelming similarities there are a lot of differences, and those differences are incredibly important.”

Tired of Supernatural? Why not mosey on down to Syfy and give Wyonna Earp a go.

3. Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made | EW
“There’s a fine line between being a movie fan and a movie fanatic. In 1982, that line was definitely crossed by three Mississippi kids who were so obsessed with Steven Spielberg’s Raiders of the Lost Ark that they decided to remake it shot-for-shot. They didn’t just love the film, they wanted to become one with it.”

Ever wanted to “swede” a movie? That feeling is shared and an old one, check out a review one of the earliest fan films ever documented.


4. The 46 Songs From The ‘Hamilton’ Soundtrack Are Now Illustrated | HufPo
“Our latest reason to go #Ham4Ham comes in the form of #Ham4Pamphlet, a collaborative project featuring the work of 45 illustrators organized by freelance illustrator and comic artist Arielle Jovellanos. According to her website, Jovellanos organized the project as a thank-you to the cast and crew after being invited backstage by cast member Seth Stewart, who saw her illustration work on Twitter. (And your parents said art wouldn’t open any doors for you!) Instead of a simple thanks, Jovellanos presented everyone on the “Hamilton” team with printed versions of the artwork you see below.”

A wonderful collection of artwork representing each track from the Hamilton musical soundtrack.


5. Jaime and Brienne’s Game of Thrones Relationship Isn’t Sexual — It’s Even Deeper | Vulture
“For a brief moment on this week’s Game of Thrones, Ser Bronn of the Blackwater sounded less like “an upjumped sellsword” and more like a randy fanboy. “You think they’re fucking?” he asks his old friend Podrick Payne. “Why not? I’d fuck her. You’d fuck her, wouldn’t you? … Well, he’d fuck her, that’s for sure. And she’d fuck him, don’t you think? The way she looks at him … The way all women look at him is frankly irritating.” The target of his indiscreet inquiries? Their bosses, Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth. In the parlance of our times, when it comes to the Kingslayer and Brienne the beauty, Bronn ships it.”

A in-depth look at the relationship between Brienne of Tarth and Kingslayer Jaime Lannister.

6. With a New Queen and King in Westeros, ‘Game of Thrones’ Enters Its Final Act | The Ringer
“Cersei rules in King’s Landing. Jon is a Targaryen. There’s a new King in the North. Dany’s fleet is heading west. There’s open warfare in the South. Sam needs someone to tell him how the Dewey decimal system works. SO MUCH HAPPENED SUNDAY NIGHT. Best episode ever? Yes.”

The Ringer’s “Ask the Maester” post, they ask and reveal histories and theories for fans to devour after a huge season 6 finale.
