Tom Hiddleston & Benedict Cumberbatch on Top Gear
the-old-folk-blues said: Sorry if I was unclear. I remember a while back you were considering your dream-team American Gods (one of my favourite books) cast, and you made a point of wanting the right ethnicity for Shadow. Which I found weird because I spent most of the book thinking of Shadow as a white guy until the "coffee-and-cream"(?) offhand description towards the end. So, thought I, if Shadow's ethnicity is so unimportant to be "revealed" towards the end of the book, then why does the actor’s ethnicity matter? 1.
With the greatest respect, that might say more about how you read the book than it does about the book you thought you read. Take a look at American Gods again and let me know what you find…
This exquisitely, scrumptiously detailed Library Cake was made by Kathy Knaus. One side features the entrance to the brick library building, flanked by potted plants. The other side reveals the library’s cozy interior, complete with countless books lining its double-decker shelves, a large globe, and a wonderfully cluttered reading table accented with gum drop lamps.
Libraries are awesome places and cake is one of the best things ever, so this sweet, edible library is extra-mega-super-duper awesome.
