And now there’s a subtitled version for non-Japanese speakers to enjoy.
History geeks - here’s a map every (popular) historical event from 2000 B.C. to 1931 - that’s more than 4,000 years of Amorites, Famines, Plagues, Aegeans, Wars, Huns, Discoveries, Romans and religions.
The chart was created by John B. Sparks and printed by Rand McNally in 1931. (Click the map to make it bigger)
Stephenie Meyer spoke to Variety about Twilight and her new production ventures - including her Shannon Hale adaptation Austenland.
On Twilight Meyer said: I get further away every day. I am so over it. For me, it’s not a happy place to be. [On returning to Twilight] What I would probably do is three paragraphs on my blog saying which of the characters died. I’m interested in spending time in other worlds, like Middle-Earth.
Of course, you’ve seen the trailer to Austenland, right??
