Jayne vs. Spike?

A couple of years ago, the comic book community was abuzz with news that the character of Superman, the Man of Steel would be killed off. The event came and went, and of course they resurrected the Man of Steel a couple of months later, but at the time, many a fan was deeply saddened.

On 18 September 2007, a direct to DVD animated movie based upon this story arc called Superman: Doomsday will hit the streets. The voice of Superman/Clark Kent will be supplied by one Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Serenity), and James Marsters of Buffy and Buzzy Multimedia …

The Dresden Files - s1e4.

And now, your weekly fan's writeup of The Dresden Files. Those who aren't fans, don't want spoilers, or plain just don't care can skip this entry.

Last night's episode was called Hair of the Dog... ..and it used a lot of plot elements of the novel Fool Moon. The episode starts off with Harry being called in to investigate a number of murders in which the canine teeth and parts of the scalps of a number of people were forcibly removed after death. The M.E. (one Waldo Butters - his t-shirt reads "I ♥ polka) reports nothing unusual about the bodies …

Lyssa and I made it into Cleveland safe and sound.

1128 EST/EDT. Lyssa and I made it into Cleveland, Ohio around 0155 EST/EDT this morning (five minutes within projected arrival time!) The Ferrett is running a Doctor Who marathon today, and Lyssa and I made the long drive to Ohio from DC to join everyone. Some of us have been fans for a while, some of us are new to the series (like Ian, sitting on the floor across the room watching Rose from season 27).

First things first, but not necessarily in that order.. I left work early yesterday afternoon so that I could pick up my …

Lyssa and I are home from the Ferrett's Doctor Who weekend marathon, having left at 0900 EST/EDT this morning to make it home around 1530 EST/EDT. It's a six hour drive from DC to Cleveland no matter which way you're going, and I'm a little worn out from all the driving, but still we had a good time. We'd started off by watching An Unearthly Child from the beginning collection. It's black and white. The acting's a little dodgy, and not just because it was the first episode ever. Yet, it started it all..

Doesn't anyone sell flippin' bookcases anymore?!

It's been an interesting weekend, to be sure.. Lyssa and I have been in the market for a couple of things lately, namely a bookcase or media shelf of some kind that we can migrate our DVD collection to, and ring binders that we can move our CD collections into while we rip and encode everything. So, to that end, we spent Saturday driving around searching for stuff along those lines. In two days, we didn't find any bookcases anywhere we looked (well, that's not entirely true, I did find one bookcase, a floor model at OfficeMax, but the construction …

Hell with it...

Jeffrey Skilling, former president of Enron, was sentenced to 24 years in Club Fed for his role in the Enron scandal.

Famous sci-fi authors tell stories in six words or less.

The Supreme Court of the state of New Jersey has voted to recognise same-sex marriages. This is entirely too awesome: Robotic Dalek pumpkins, complete with propulsion motors and a remote control so you can chase the trick-or-treaters down the sidewalk.

They have no problems with forgetting about a certain movie, but when the fans start producing the swag that the production company didn't want, they sic the lawyers on …
