No Such Agency: Jaws_Victim:God-is-a-Taco: Penguin is releasing new editions of five of books by George Orwell, with covers by designer David Pearson.Why? Why is it apparently noteworthy that some guy changed the cover? Is the story different now?Because this is so incredibly edgey and different! The title and author are BLACKED OUT! That is revolutionary. At least, that is the vibe I get from the article.Too bad it misses the point - in 1984 the censorship an revisionism were so complete that people couldn't even tell things were being changed and censored. Even when it was done right in front of their eyes they still didn't even see it. That was Orwell's fear - the perfect totalitarian state reaching right into the citizens' minds.
ModernLuddite: Why only 2 minutes hate? I can do a half hour, 45 minutes.
thisiszombocom: when did redacted replace the word censored?or am i missing something in the meaning?
Mad_Radhu: they are a pretty good source of Sci-Fi and Fantasy news and reviews. I especially love their True Blood and AHS episode reviews/recaps.
rustypouch: Oh... an i09 link...Can someone post a link to the article they copied, so I don't have to give them the traffic?
