First, read this Star Trek soliloquy (sp?). Brilliant. Well, what’s up? A certain giant software company has recently taken to taking pot-shots at sites that parody it, notably User Friendly: The Comic Strip and BeDope. What’s sad is, they know they don’t have a leg to stand on, this being parody and all, besides the fact that they’re attacking pretty high-profile sites that won’t […]

I hear Orson Scott Card is thinking of casting Jake Lloyd as Ender in his upcoming adaptation of Ender’s Game. In a way, this may not be a great idea: audiences will identify so strongly with Jake as Anakin (look at what happened to Mark Hammill). OTOH, Harrison Ford was able to break out of that mold, and actually so was Hammill after playing in the Wing Commander series. All Jake […]

Ish, been gone for quite awhile. But honestly, I haven’t had much of interest go on lately.

Well, I ran across a very interesting website the other day: It’s somewhat like Yahoo!, except that every category has an identified (human) guide to pick and choose the links there. Even better, every guide puts up articles within their category, about the state of that hobby/industry/whatever, techniques for improving oneself within that category, and so forth. Wonderful informational resource. My only complaint is how busy […]

I haven’t forgotten you, really. Just haven’t been inspired lately, and Papyrus has been taking up a lot of my time over the past few days. Mystery Science Theater 3000 is being threatened with a second death; the Sci-Fi Channel has decided not to buy any more episodes after the current season 10 is over. Unfortunately, the fans are screaming and yelling as though the Pope had just been […]
