Something’s in the air — it must be time for some summer reading. Earlier this week we told you about the new edition of the Rotel Ultimate Guide to High Performance Home Theater. And a reader recently asked me what books he should read to learn more about audio and video. I am unabashedly stealing this idea for an article.

From entry level to advanced, here’s a list of many things for the book learnin’. READ MORE
In an interview with MTV, Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito was asked about a potential Black Panther movie, and this is what he had to say:
“He has a lot of the same characteristics of a Captain America: great character, good values… But it’s a little more difficult, maybe, creating [a world like Wakanda].

“Esquire’s attempting to bring men back to fiction reading — which I totally support,” [Jezebel writer Erin Gloria] Ryan told ABCNews.com. “But they’re doing it in a way that’s a little eye roll-inducing — It’s a little dismaying that we’re still entrenched in a way of thinking that routinely encourages women to confront and understand the experiences of men, but men can’t be bothered to read about the experiences of women, and it’s especially dismaying to see a leading men’s magazine endorsing that antiquated way of thinking.” READ MORE
