Joss Whedon brings his Dr Horrible to life

After a warning to the world several months ago that I mentioned here, Joss Whedon has put out the first preview for his comic book, sci-fi, comedy bizarro musical short film “Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”. What started as a joke of a good time during the writer’s strike is now a very real and very ...

We’re all nuts

It’s funny to see that David E Kelley has clearly just had enough of the state of his nation right now — every week on Boston Legal it’s more of Alan Shore (James Spader) trying to convince some judge on what’s wrong with America. And he’s always right, and it’s just getting more and more ...

RIP George Carlin

First picked up on this news last night on John Scalzi’s site — it’s a little disconcerting when you read something big on a blog before a news site, but it happens more and more now. Carlin was a funny guy, a talented comic, and an inspiration to so many comedians that came after him ...

Sundays …

For some reason we didn’t go to bed until 3am this morning … Sallie’s been on a real productivity bender with her new Pressure Canner, though I have a feeling it’s not quite as easy as she’d hoped it would be. Maybe it’s just first time issues, I think. I could have gone to bed, ...

A funny thing happened

When I started playing a bit of the recent Simpsons game on Wii tonight (that we were finally able to pickup last week), I didn’t think I’d be at it for long. It seems like a mostly great game so far, with just a few niggling annoying aspects. Then I really got into it, then ...

Was 1993 this important?

My first thought about 1993 was that it was my first year after high school, but I don’t remember it being this influential … in fact, 1994, being my first year of exposure to the Internet (or probably more 1995), seems far more important to me. But Wired, in a further effort to play up ...

Why I gave up on Lost

Read Mythbuster Adam Savage’s review of the end of the current season of Lost and see why it’s driving everyone nuts, apparently *especially* when they’re a big fan. While it was always science fiction, it’s now dived head first into really overt science fiction, with time travel, island moving and other such oddities. It seems ...

Laughter and responsibility

Good day today … only worked in the morning, and from home at that. Not that I could get much done in the morning, which is fairly typical of course, so at least I didn’t have to do it further away. Whole family went over to the kid’s hospital at Westmead — we had a ...

Changing of the guard for Doctor Who

This was mostly already known, just today it’s finally happened. After successfully re-engineering Doctor Who for a new audience, Russell T Davies has decided to hang up his hat as the series boss. He also set-up the successful spin-off Torchwood, not sure whether he’s staying for that or not. And the new showrunner? This actually ...

Funny things

Well, not always so funny, I guess. It’s amazing how easy it is to get through the week, whether you like your job or not. I suspect this is how so many people just put up with things — they get enough out of the evenings and weekends to keep themselves going. But I’m not ...
