Time to linkspam y’all…it’s been WAY too long.
This is a wonderful meme
for the holiday season that I'm preparing to do…and so is this one
if I can figure out how to set up this type of poll. Anybody?
Apparently the co-founder of Greenpeace is now in favor of nuclear energy
as the only viable solution to our energy and carbon emission woes.
The NY Times discusses the idea of humanity’s need to create and enjoy art
being a favored evolutionary trait.
Wired interviews the country’s top sexologists about the latest in female orgasm research
I hope you all are getting out to see NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
, a fantastic film. Very powerful, deceptively simple, and the most badass badguy you will ever meet. I have more to say on it – but for now let me leave you with this link
(spoiler warning), which explores some other opinions and in particular the film’s unusual ending.
This is really cool, that Fox is doing a fan poster contest
for THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES…but this detail from the contest rules really sucks: “Entrant may NOT use his/her own original illustrations, photographs or other images, fonts, text copy, and drawings and may NOT use 3rd party elements.”
Boooo Fox. Boooo. (btw if you want to participate, hurry up the deadline is only a few weeks away…)This NY Sun piece
features very nasty comments on the films, but is nevertheless my great reminder that WB just released DVDs of two of my childhood 70s SF faves, LOGAN’S RUN
and SOYLENT GREEN
. Ahhhh <3 <3 <3
I have been turned on to two exciting music web sites I want to highly recommend: VSL showed me this new NPR music site
, which I’ll have to explore soon. And BSG actress Nicki (“Cally”) Clyne’s blog
introduced me to Pandora
, which is just incredible so far…I’ve only scratched its surface, creating a single channel inspired by The New Pornographers. Fun stuff.
I am a latecomer to the magic that is HEROES Exec Producer Greg Beeman’s blog
. It’s never too late! I am entranced at the moment by these mysterious SLUSHO pics
(go down the post a bit and you'll find em)...How do these relate to CLOVERFIELD? Anyone understand this glorious, mystifying mashup? Slusho cups have made an appearance on HEROES for 2 weeks now…and Beeman says it's all "don't ask/don't tell" for now, but "their cultural significance will become clear in the coming months so pay attention!" I'm geekably fascinated. Meanwhile, I’m still a tad joyfilled that gothamist has called out CLOVERFIELD as “NYC Destruction Porn.
” Yeah, I’m a longtime fan of that (ARMAGEDDON anyone? Heh.)
Always helpful mediocrechick
has supplied us with yet another great set of scans – this time of People’s Sexiest Men Alive
issue. Don't know about you girls - but most of my TV faves are here. *dies* But why is Taylor Kitsch wearing so much clothing…and what is with the bizarre (over)retouching on Nathan Fillion? At least Milo has accepted and owned up fully to his utter sexiness. Must be why Beeman is always photographing him shirtless (see above)? *g*
I am incredibly pleased to hear that BBCA has decided to run S2 of TORCHWOOD
so quickly…I am loving this show, and would have hated to wait a frakking year!
Two very engrossing (and depressing) new posts on the Writers Guild strike: this one is about
the less-publicized, and highly dangerous, anti-union practices involving reality TV. And this one is written by a lawyer
in digital media, entertainment and technology law – discussing just how much the AMPTP are so NOT GETTING THIS in a basic way.ch_photoshopped
has more of her gorgeous flickering light icons
– this time with a wintery theme. *snuggles closer to the fire *
