8:58AM - Animating in the Recession
Interesting recession-related link for the day: Future of 'anime' industry in doubt: Money, success elude; outsourcing, piracy abound.
Personally, I think AltJapan's commentary is rather astute, if a bit pointed.
10:03AM - Basic Cable Personality Clash Skirmish '09- The Ultimate Battle
An update from this post.
So last night was the huge Daily Show's Jon Stewart Vs Mad Money's Jim Cramer Battle! (Just look for the recent videos with Jim Cramer written near the thumbnail.) If you don't want to watch the whole smack down, here's a summary.
12:35PM - will they wind up sharing custody of the Newbery?
This Monday, Neil Gaiman is scheduled to appear on Stephen Colbert. (Here's the clip where Stephen bitterly rails against not winning this year's Newbery.) Given what a fanboy in general Stephen is and how terminally AWESOME Neil is, I'm looking forward to this.
ETA that the clip I linked to aired 04 Feb 09.
3:47PM - James T Kirk Was a Great Man, But That Was Another Life
Ladies, Gentlemen & Others:
Someone did a mashup of the new Trailer for Star Trek: Rebooted with scenes from the Original Series. And is it awesome.
6:08PM - Kingdom of Wank
Hey, I'm just here pimping out the official fandom_wank Kingdom of Loathing clan, The Wankamancers. It was started around two years ago, but right now I'm the only active member, and I'm lonely, so very lonely. So come join, all right? All applications will be approved, no questions asked.
