TWOP reviews Serenity, chok full of more philosophy than you can shake a stick at.

Serenity kicks butt and takes names at the Smart Popcorn awards.

AND A TRANSITION: 2005 Nebula Nominees include Terry Pratchett for Best Novel (Going Postal) and Joss Whedon for Best Script (Serenity).

The Christian Guide to Fantasy: Terry Pratchett. Contains mini-reviews for most of the Discworld books, pointing out potential danger zones for Christian morality! Utterly hilarious. Though they totally neglect to mention Carrot and Angua’s sordid one-night stand in their review of Men at Arms. They must be losing their edge. :D

Early yesterday, I posted the Thomas and Bianca pic to the Dresden Files mailing list, where author Jim Butcher occasionally hangs out, and I’ve been waiting with bated breath to see his reaction to the image. Well, he just replied to an email sent a few days ago. HE’S CHECKING HIS EMAIL. AND SOON HE WILL READ THE ONE FROM ME.

No love,

Freestyle Skiing Aerials. Dude, how do these people not die, or at minimum break every bone in their bodies? I sit in humble awe of their total defiance of gravity.
