History of The Rainbow Project

The Rainbow List is a bibliography of new titles for GLBTQ readers’ ages birth through 18, and released during the ALA Midwinter Meeting. Part of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Roundtable AND the Social Responsibilities Round Table of ALA, those serving on the Rainbow Project (as the committee is called) are required to be members of both. The committee looks at hundreds of books each year, from July the previous year through December of the current year, and during Midwinter goes through their nominations to select what they feel are the best books for young readers.

One of a very few committees in ALA that work on a consensus minus one format (the Amelia Bloomer Project and the Over the Rainbow Committee are two others), the Rainbow Project unique also in that while created by librarians and used by librarians, it’s not created for librarians. The charge is to create a list for the reader, and as such the committee members keep teens, tweens, and kids in mind when selecting titles for the list each year.

The first list was released in 2008, and if you take a look, the lists have frequently mirrored both the Stonewall Youth Award/Honor list and The Lambda List with their choices. While a bibliography, the Rainbow List typically showcases their top choices with an asterisk or other notation, and those are published in Booklist in their award edition.

The Rainbow Project meetings are open to the public, so if you are headed to ALA Midwinter in Chicago this weekend, feel free to observe the discussions.  

In post-Katrina New Orleans the artist Candy Chang used the power of public art to provide hope for overcoming emotional trauma: she painted a wall of an abandoned building and stenciled the sentence, “Before I die I want to _____.” Within a day the wall was covered with colorful messages of people. Since then, more than four hundred Before I Die walls have been created in over 60 countries and over 25 languages. The book collects the images, the tears, the stories, the secret thoughts, the smiles, the fears and the dreams behind the public walls.

JUST as important as learning to cite a paper, being a good digital citizen is a MUST in the world today.

This image puts “things” found on the internet in a more meaningful context… 

The process of city-making belongs to citizens today more than yesterday: communities take ownership of their environment and by means of low resources, awareness and creativity answer their needs. Handmade Urbanism focuses on five emerging cities -Mumbai, Cape Town, Mexico City, Istanbul and São Paulo - and describes the potential of urban transformation embedded in small-scale initiatives.

Fatal Frame 4

Works on this list either have a book or box shown in show, the title mentioned in dialogue, dialogue from them spoken, scene(s) lived out by characters, or specifically cited in interviews.


No (?) means I’m reasonably confident with the citation. I’ve found them cited within the show either by titles spoken, a line of dialogue from the material, a shot recreated from the film, or the book/film/etc seeded in the background, or titles Jeff Davis has mentioned specifically in interviews.

(?) means that they may satisfy one of these elements but I don’t feel confident with the attribution.

Since I haven’t had a chance to play or replay the listed video games, these attributions are somewhat tentative on my part but have been shown to me to be not-improbable.


Nonfiction books usually either have a broad subject title (Pathology) or are used like posters with text on them to give meta info on the scene. I haven’t systematically written those down.

I’m sure this is incomplete. For one thing in terms of dialogue I probably didn’t recognize some references and some titles in the background I can’t quite make out.

Hi, bethwoodvilles sent me your way, hoping you could recommend some good books on the French Wars of Religion?

Hello dear, sorry for the delay, I’m mostly absent during the week due to uni and all of my work for it :). Ok here is a small list. Unfortunatelly, I’m a French speaker, and a lot of good books on the subject are in French, I don’t know if you know the language, but yes :S. Thought some might have been translated.

In English:

  • The French wars of religion, Salmon, John Hearsey McMillan
  • Local politics in the French Wars of Religion : the towns of Champagne, the Duc de Guise, and the Catholic League, 1560-95, Konnert, Mark W.
  • The French Wars of Religion, Tilley Arthur Augustus
  • The Valois: Kings of France 1328-1589 + The French Wars of Religion 1559–1598, by the same author Robert J Knecht
  • The Wars of Religion in France, 1559 - 1576, The Huguenots, Catherine de Medici and Philip II, james westfall thompson

There is this historiography too, which can be very useful:

  • The French Wars of Religion: Selected Documents, by David Potter

In French:

  • La France et Rome pendant les guerres de religions, Rocquain, Félix
  • Le royaume de Catherine de Médicis : la France à la veille des guerres de religion, Romier. Lucien
  • Le monde des huguenots : de la France des guerres de religion au Stockholm de la noblesse marchande, Bedoire, Fredric
  • La Saint-Barthélemy : 1572, by Janine Garrisson.

Hope it helps you dear ;)

Make_Shift City. Renegotiating the Urban Commons starts on the premise that public spaces are part of urban commons, today more than yesterday, as recent history has told us. With this consideration, the book presents a collection of the most mesmerizing design projects reshaping cities’ topography by means of art, imagination, civic participation and low resources.

The Ring, The Ring Two, and Teen Wolf: Parallels

Since vidronoliquidificador did a great write-up for Saw, I thought I’d try to put the movies beside the show for The Ring and The Ring Two.


Spoilers for The Ring and The Ring Two follow along with details of fictional death and suicide.

This is a long one.
