Happy Friday! We have some more marriage equality updates, a timeline for future comic book movies, and the untimely passing of some notable people. Also, there’s a rather weird music/intelligence “study” with which I have some problems. Let’s get started:

I am an art history student extraordinaire doing research on Hellenistic Sculpture in Ancient Greece. I also moonlight as a multitasking office assistant. Yes, I am really that awesome. In a past life (or career really) I was a photographer.
