Wow. Three passes to the Arboretum that expired in 2002. I need to clean off my bulletin board more often.


Canada: Same-sex marriage law passes 158-133. Supported by most members of the Liberals, the Bloc Québécois and the NDP, the legislation passed easily, making Canada only the third country in the world, after the Netherlands and Belgium, to officially recognize same-sex marriage.

Not to mention all the countries that have civil unions or similar! America: your turn! *crickets chirp*

Oh my good god. Out of curiosity, I randomly googled “Animal Mother”, to see what Adam Baldwin (Jayne) looked like in “Full Metal Jacket” (which I have not seen), and I came across this Swedish site that had pictures of him in all his past roles.

1983 ADAM IS LUKE SKYWALKER’S BRUNETTE BROTHER. And there is something terribly Zen about seeing Jayne chilling with Mr. T.

From here, you can get to everybody else’s page. I was shocked to see nothing from Space Cases on Jewel’s page, but there are enough pictures of 80s soap opera Nathan to make up for it. And now I’m sorely tempted to see “A Knight’s Tale” and “28 Days” solely for the Alan Tudyk.

Joss stuff:

An excellent song based on the The Ballad of Serenity: “Mal’s Song”, by Escape Key.

The MPAA has given Serenity a PG-13 rating. (Despite the R rating on our screening tickets)

And a hilarious bit of X-Men 3 news: Maggie Grace (Lost) is out as Kitty Pryde. The production team has just issued a casting notice for the role. Ratner and Co. are a smart bunch because they’re using the script to The Astonishing X-Men comic-book as sides. Wanna know the irony? The comic-book is written by Joss Whedon, who every fanboy dreamed of having writing and directing X-Men 3.

Ganked from Beth, a candidate for the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen for sale on Amazon: The Penguin Classics Library Complete Collection. A mere 8 thousand dollars! “From Edwin A. Abbott to Emile Zola, the 1,082 titles in the Penguin Classics Complete Library total nearly half a million pages–laid end to end they would hit the 52-mile mark. Approximately 700 pounds in weight, the titles would tower 828 feet if you stacked them atop each other–almost as tall as the Empire State Building.”

I wonder if a single instance will be sold.
