And if this shit doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will.

Howdy, everyone! Tonight we’re rolling out Mathemedia, a compendium of math-related media — and we’re looking for your submissions!
Send us your favorite books, movies, songs, art, essays, and articles (etc.) that prominently feature mathematics or mathematicians — and we’ll add them to Mathemedia. But first! a few ground rules:
We prefer that material be accessible to anyone with a love of mathematics and access to Wikipedia — assuming, at most, a typical high school education in math.
In general, we’re looking for stories about mathematics — told either from the inside or outside. Fiction is great; non-fiction is good too, as long as it’s designed for more than a mathematically-trained audience. There are several great lists out there on the interwebs of seminal papers and great textbooks and phenomenal websites — this is not one of them.
If you have the time, please include a short description of the book, movie, etc. in question. This will help anyone browsing the list figure out what’s most interesting and appealing to them. If the material is legally available on the Internet (e.g., an article or music video), feel free to include a link!
Thanks for helping spread our love of math! We’ll start putting up what you submit later tonight.
This list was inspired by math-is-beautiful's fabulous list of math-related blogs :)

As the weather wears at her
Her stone shape weeps.
— Ted Hughes, from “Niobe”, in Tales from Ovid (via the-final-sentence)
Even though I stay in this body
sometimes I drift
sliding through
from me into you.
