Bloomsday, RIP Stan Winston

In honor of Bloomsday, I was all set to post a chipper set of links to stuff like audio of James Joyce reading, and then I heard that Stan Winston, makeup/creature/animatronic effects artist without peer, has died. (Notes from AICN, Slashfilm, and Bloody Disgusting). Not too many people did more to shape the look of our favorite monsters of the last couple of decades than him.

In other, more pleasant news: Psst! Supernatural fans! Look here!

The Tigers have won six in a row since losing Jeremy Bonderman for the season, and they’re getting Rodney and Zumaya back this week. This thing isn’t over yet.

Back to Bloomsday, one of my favorite Joyce-related pictures:
