Scorpion

(no subject)

Happy birthday David Johansen (aka Buster Poindexter)! He turns 53 today.

Finished the first volume of The Replacement God by Zander Cannon, and man, I am looking forward to more. Very non-standard fantasy, but in a good way. I have to resist getting it put in my subscription box, though, and just stick to the graphic novels. I subscribe to too many comic books as is. (Luckily, a few like Astro City and Rising Stars are helping me here by NEVER COMING OUT REGULARLY. Jeez. Anyways.)

Impressive rant by an EQ player against MMORPGs. (Thanks to Magistrate. Who still needs a LJ.)

NEWS:
* Federal court rules to remove citizens' constitutional rights without recourse.
* Microsoft's future plans. Including... a watch.
* Jobless and stunned.
* Good news: Returning the Buddha's head.
* Media watch: the world still watches American culture.
