I feel the urge to write a proper update, but I fail to have the time--no, really, it's energy--to write rather than passively consume. Thus! Link sausage!

As forwarded to metafandom: gaudior's thoughts on cultural appropriation as an anime fan, in response to a rant she links to. It took me a few days simply to read all the comments the original post generated in various forums. Head too full, but of stuff worth thinking about.

And in bizarre contrast, via Neil Gaiman...
The equally megatalented, although significantly shorter than Thea Gilmore, Stephin Merritt, is being defended against what seem to me to be remarkably wrong-headed accusations of racism (he said on a panel that Zip-e-dee-doo-dah was a great song from a bad movie) this morning over at Slate.
... buh? There's more to it than that, but poor Stephin (except really I'm sure he can take care of himself).

P.S. If I type the letter h into the search bar of this browser and look at the autocomplete options, I get "Harvard Shuttle schedule", "Heimdall kills Loki", and "House, M.D. episode guide". Which somehow sums up something about the state of my brain right now. *dashes off to catch the shuttle*

When you see this on your friendslist, quote Leo McGarry.

I can't do better than one of gnomi's choices:

"This guy's walking down the street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can't get out. A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, 'Hey you. Can you help me out?' The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up, 'Father, I'm down in this hole can you help me out?' The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by, 'Hey, Joe, it's me can you help me out?' And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, 'Are you stupid? Now we're both down here.' The friend says, 'Yeah, but I've been down here before and I know the way out.' " (Noel)

RIP, John Spencer.

Okay, kids, now's your chance. The British 2005 season of Doctor Who, which is fantabulous, is airing in the US starting tonight, on the Sci-Fi Channel. Make your popcorn, set your TiVos, and WATCH.

No previous experience with Doctor Who required.

No previous science fiction fandom required.

No really. People have loved it without either of those. The leads are solid and the stories are too. Past fans will have to get over the lack of wobbly sets and on-the-cheap F/X--they did it thoroughly this time around. Give it a shot, tonight at nine, or check the rerun schedule.

*sly voice* "Try it, you'll like it."

... man, now I need some Doctor Who icons that aren't spoilery for this season for you guys...

The new Doctor Who (the 2005 season) will be coming to the Sci-Fi channel in March and finally be released on North American DVD in July.


You're all required to watch. Whether or not you liked classic Who, this stuff's good. In deference to those who haven't seen it I haven't used my spoileriffic icon. But it's if anyone wants to see. ;-)
