Shameless Self Promotion
On the way to the wedding: The Lady’s first round of wedding photo festivities
Battle of the puppy names: Help The Lady and I pick a name for our new Corgi.
Black Friday, Bitches!
Black Friday brawl reported at Walmart in Rome: This is where I live. Represent.
Dianne Sylvan’s top three moments of TVD Season Three: Part two of the hellatus-filling recap series. My thoughts are here.
Harry Connolly releases the Twenty Palaces prequel novel: I devoured this entire (three book) series in about two weeks. If you like grim-n-gritty urban fantasy stories, these are definitely for you. Sadly, the publisher isn’t going to release any more of these, but if this (self published) novel takes off, maybe we can convince Harry to release them himself.
Christian Bale, Christopher Nolan are done with Batman: Which raises the question: will Warner Bros. reboot the franchise, or just recast Batman?
Computers and Technology
Is this the future of eReaders? The kyobo XGA has a full-color eInk-like display that looks incredible… at least in the promo video. I’ll want to see one in person before I make a call on this.
Google Chrome to get native game pad, web cam support: The browser is the computer, et cetera et cetera.
Man-size Hobbit House: I want to go to there. As long as it gets cable.
They see me rolling: Squee.
Politics and Religion
A new translation for the Catholic mass: Now that this important work is done, maybe they can get around to doing something about the rampant child rape.
