North Korea threatens ‘merciless’ response over Seth Rogen film
North Korea has threatened a “resolute and merciless” response against the US unless it bans a film about an attempt to assassinate the country’s leader, Kim Jong-un. North Korea warned the US government that failure to stop the film being released would be considered an “act of war”. Full story 

Brilliant! How sad it must be to live in a world without a sense of humour.

Procrastinating Peter

I’ve changed my Tumblr theme three times; my bio two times; my picture, one time, but I’ve written unfinished stories around sixty-four times. In lieu of this, I’ve decided to move to China and embark on the most expensive process for smashing writer’s block.

"It was F Scott Fitzgerald wrote that ‘whenever you feel like criticising anyone, remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had’. It is remembering those children let down by the old GCSE, and the culture of low expectations it epitomised, that drives our mission to give all pupils access to our shared literary heritage."

"No, we have not banned To Kill a Mockingbird," writes one MP in response to last week’s uproar over the new English literature GCSE. (via guardian)

Speaking as someone whose two favourite novels are by American authors, I am outraged by this. Yes, writers such as Hardy and Dickens are crucial to the study of English literature, but they also have their own drawbacks. These American classics are deemed ‘classics’ for a reason and to ban them because of their country of origin is ridiculous.
