I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as thought provoking as I have.
I enjoyed Suicide Squad, the recent DC Films release featuring a group super villains forced to do some good. I was likely to enjoy it as I am the target audience for a movie like this. If they can’t get me to like it, they have real problems!
The movie has been drubbed by critics but continues to do pretty solid business. Is one of the reasons the fact that it has a very, very diverse cast – a cast more diverse than the overwhelming majority of other Hollywood releases? Nine of the fourteen featured characters in the movie are not Caucasian males. That is a fact (and there are others in this Forbes article by Scott Mendelson) which are pretty interesting.
