Philip José Farmer died this morning. He was the author of the Riverworld series, probably one of my favorite of the sprawling SF series sub-genre. I liked it so much, it caused me to read 2 different biographies of Richard Francis Burton, who is central to the series. Good bye, Mr. Farmer.
I'm not a big comics person, but some friend made me sit down and read Watchmen a long time ago, and I've never regretted it. So I'm also eagerly awaiting the movie. But... just because I like the graphic novel doesn't mean I'm above making fun of it. :)
icanhascheezburger looked a little different when I bumped into it again today. Turns out they can probably give up on the "cheezburger" and start eating steak: The site was bought out last fall. The overarching company, Pet Holdings, has raised M$2¼ in venture capital. I can has $$$?
