posted on 3.19.12 I have an article in next month’s issue of @GAMER!

It’s my first-ever freelance piece, and for print, no less! The article is a four-page preview of Assassin’s Creed III; the folks at Future US sent over a PDF of the finished product today, and it looks amazing. I’m ecstatic about this, and I can’t wait for you folks to see it. (In case you were unaware, @GAMER is Best Buy’s in-house gaming magazine.)

The issue hits on April 8th, but subscribers will get it a little earlier. You should all pick it up when it’s out!

Alan Rickman Says Goodbye To The ‘Harry Potter’ Franchise
In the April 2011 issue of Empire Magazine, Alan Rickman wrote this open letter that reflected on his time spent with the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise, and giving thanks and praise to J. K. Rowling.
Alan Rickman is one classy guy, plus this letter is so much better if you read it with Rickman’s voice in your head.

Love this.

“The person who wrote that article gets to tell everyone she meets that she writes for a magazine, as does the copy editor who missed the mistake, as does the editor responsible for it. And everyone they meet is like, “Oh, that seems like a nice job.” And yet every third person I meet is all, “A blogger? You can make money doing that?” Yeah, I can. It’s not the best job, but I’m overqualified for magazine work.”

I feel like that every day.

“I’m acutely aware that this image will be seen by children, who will undoubtedly find it distressing. We have consulted with a number of child psychologists about its potential impact … In the end, I felt that the image is a window into the reality of what is happening — and what can happen — in a war that affects and involves all of us. I would rather confront readers with the Taliban’s treatment of women than ignore it. I would rather people know that reality as they make up their minds about what the U.S. and its allies should do in Afghanistan.”
From: Time managing editor Richard Stengel, on his decision to put a photo of an Afghan woman who was mutilated by the Taliban on the cover of the magazine (via New York Mag) (via soupsoup)

Edge Magazine apparently has the foresight to see internet memes coming from a mile away.

Roger Ebert: The Essential Man
Yes, that is, indeed, Roger Ebert — at 67, and after countless surgeries that cut out more and more of his body to try and salvage his face, which was ravaged by thyroid (and later, salivary gland) cancer. If you haven’t yet read this warm, touching, endearing profile of him by Chris Jones in Esquire, I urge you to do so; it’s easily worth 15 or 20 minutes of your time. I would say I feel sorry for the man, but he says he is happy, and it really does seem true.
Here’s an excerpt:

Ebert’s dreams are happier. Never yet a dream where I can’t talk, he  writes on another Post-it note, peeling it off the top of the blue  stack. Sometimes I discover — oh, I see! I CAN talk! I just forget to  do it.
In his dreams, his voice has never left. In his  dreams, he can get out everything he didn’t get out during his waking  hours: the thoughts that get trapped in paperless corners, the jokes he  wanted to tell, the nuanced stories he can’t quite relate. In his  dreams, he yells and chatters and whispers and exclaims. In his dreams,  he’s never had cancer. In his dreams, he is whole.
These things  come to us, they don’t come from us, he writes about his cancer,  about sickness, on another Post-it note. Dreams come from us.
