what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


OH GOSH THANK YOU! :D 
And my mistake, I read that as internet searches, not book mentions! This makes much more sense.

The Black Count is Being Adapted for a New Film!

Tom Reiss’s The Black Count, which details the true story of Général Thomas Alexandre Dumas (father of author Alexandre Dumas), is being adapted into a film directed by Cary Fukunaga (director of HBO’s True Detective).

No actors have been named so far, although some people are already speculating that Howard Charles may be considered for the lead. He’s known for playing the role of Porthos on the BBC’s Three Musketeers:

You can read a bit more about this story and hear an interview with the book’s author here at Indiewire.

You can read an excerpt of The Black Count here.

FUCK YES!

This is a review of a book which, if you read the title phonetically, would be called Dotter of Smoak and Boan, and I was massively frustrated by this book.

What! How could it fail to be good, one asks, with a title like that? Well.

That’s what I thought.

It’s set in Prague! It involves a ram-headed demon who runs a shop where he hands out wishes in exchange for clean teeth! It turns out later that his real job is as something called a “Resurrectionist”.  How cool is that?!

Too cool for this book apparently.

The entire plot is eaten up by the shallow, uninteresting romance between this shallow, uninteresting, quirky, artsy, blue-haired teenager who lives in “Prague”

(is it Prague or is it a quirky, artsy city in Generic America? Generica, if you will? WHO CAN SAY!!!) 

and the uninterestingly broody angel upon whom she has a huge crush that literally. eats up. the whole. plot!!!

and you slog through an interminable bunch of not much happening in under-researched Eastern Europe, with a brief excursion to what appears to be 19th Century Imperial Goggles version of Morocco, and then you find out that wait!

behind this protagonist the whole time was hiding a potentially interesting WARRIOR CHIMERA WOMAN! and a POTENTIALLY INTERESTING OTHER WORLD! with an endless war! and a Resurrectionist!

except

in the midst of this potentially interesting world building

the plot is still ALL ABOUT THIS BORING ROMANCE!!!!

and female characters fighting over dudes. female soldiers. fighting over dudes.  the dudes are not even that interesting! Why have you done this???

But you know what? None of this actually matters! Because, in the end, I was sunk in the depths of abject misery today, and then I thought about how angry this book made me, and I started to feel a lot better!!

Four stars, Dotter of Smoak and Boan.  So bad it’s better than brain drugs. Thank you for this huge disappointment!!!

Three Kingdoms? Hmmm, that’s not enough kingdoms. How about seven? Seven Kingdoms! No, that’s still not… maybe twelve? How’s Twelve Kingdoms sound?

No! You’re not thinking ambitiously enough! More kingdoms! More kingdoms than that!

Well how many kingdoms do you want???? A Hundred Thousand Kingdoms???? WE DON’T HAVE THAT MANY KINGDOMS!!
