A truly excellent webcomic just finished 17776, which is ostensibly about the future of football, but is more truly about the meaning of life, immortality, and the nature of play. It's exceedingly well done SF, and I highly recommend it (despite my knowledge of and interest in football being quite low indeed). I'm told it has similarities with the web comic Homestuck, but I bounced off that hard, and I love this, in part because instead of going really slowly, it's fast paced and encompassed only 2 weeks or so of daily updates, rather than multiple years.

Here's IO9's discussion of it, which is very good, but I think diving right in is better.

Also, Here's a link to both an article about and the trailer for the new A Wrinkle in Time movie, coming out next March (2018). It looks exceedingly good, and much different from all previous versions I've heard of, but actively avoided.

The 2004 ABC movie (which I heard was impressively dreadful) is responsible for one of the best quotes I've ever heard from an author about an adaptation of their book:
When (L'Engle was) asked if the recent ABC movie of A Wrinkle in Time met her expectations: “Oh, yes. I expected it to be bad, and it is."
Watch the trailer, this one looks to be very different indeed, and unless I hear very much otherwise, I'll be seeing it.
