Terry and Neil


Mirrormask made more money per screen last weekend than Serenity.

So they had a lot less screen, but hey :P
It's no wonder that Joss suddenly develops such an interest for the Buffy franchise again...


gogogidget mocks some especially stupid spam here

A Special Offer For Single Men Only...
"The Ten Most Dangerous
Mistakes YOU Probably
Make With Women—
And What To Do About It..."

Complete with all the cliches of "Attractive women don't date nice guys", etc...

I really dig her take on this bit :
How many times have you taken a woman out to a nice dinner, bought her gifts and flowers, and had her REJECT you for someone who didn't treat her even HALF as well as you did?

If you're like me, then you've had it happen a LOT.

Yes, because if you think at this point that buying her things = treating her well, your head is so far up your ass she had no other choice but to go off looking for a better companion.

Paul - Dune - King of Pain

Kal-el, Excalibur, Stilgar

[1] ... You know, I figure I should respect the freedom of people to give their kids stupid names, but seriously... I used to think better of that guy : Nicholas Cage names his newborn son Kal-el Coppola Cage
Comments on scans_daily tell me that "Kal-El is Hebrew for "All is God" ". Good. So instead of being just a pop culture stupid name, it's a cultural stupid name. About as smart as would be calling your daughter Madonna now.

Dude, if you hate kids, just don't breed, okay?

[2] PWEPAIH TEW MEET YAW DOOM! - why I loved Alan Davis' Excalibur, your crack delivery by scans_daily - the whole comics is linked in the comments.

[3] I've been doing a bit of nostalgic Dune-digging lately, and one of the umpteen reason why that book is my bible :
Too few individuals, and a people reverts to a mob. Stilgar, "Dune" (okay so I can't stand the Fremen and I joyously want to punch Stilgar, but he wasn't all bad)

See, I have useful fictional crushes. Falling head over heels for Paul when I was 13 taught me all I needed to know about being wary of crowd manipulation.
