I’m Officially Me

self-promotion

HEY GUYS I ONLY HAVE LIKE FOUR SECONDS BECAUSE SOMEONE HAS DECIDED TO USE HER OUTSIDE VOICE FOR REASONS UNBEKNOWNST TO ME BUT KNOWNST TO HER SO I GOTTA GO BUT HERE IS MY BRAND-NEW OFFICIAL WEB PRESENCE.

It is called rebeccaschuman.com because up until about ten minutes ago, nobody owned rebeccaschuman.com. The true mark of serious and utter lack of fame or notoriety is when nobody owns a domain name of your first and last name.

Cumberbatch and Kafka

Slate

I am a big fan of Benedict Cumberbatch (or at any rate, I named my bicycle Bikedict Cumberbike for some reason). I am a big “fan” of Franz Kafka (since I am no longer a professional Kafka scholar, what is my relationship? Have I been demoted back to fandom? Who gives a shit? I don’t know). So, it stands to reason I would be a big fan of the BBC’s re-airing of Sherlock reading Die Verwandlung, and I am. My latest on Slate explains why.
