If sockscatt has, or can get, a PS3, he might want to take Taco Bell up on their 'tacos for life' exchange: first person to donate a PS3 gets $12,500 in Taco Bell Bucks. The PS3 will then be handed over to the Boys & Girls Club of Stanton, California.

What a wonderful Doctor Who concert! I wish I'd been able to be there in person, but still, good that Radio Wales carried it live over the net. And I was rather pleased to see them acknowledge Delia Derbyshire's role in the original music's arrangement and realisation.

Here's the fursuit parade in full from MFF 2006, albeit with one of the most painful audio compressions YouTube's yet inflicted on the public.

Good grief.. now we hear that both Christopher Eccleston and George Takei will be joining Heroes. I might even have to sneak a peek at the show sometime..

Now this is an iPod dock I'd be tempted by, if I had one. =:)

Here's a good look at the Vista EULA, with particular regard to its implicit threat to disable the software if Microsoft feels so inclined. It goes on to explore the US legal nature of such "self help" - here, a vendor disabling their code in response to a license violation - including some case history and applicable laws.

Nothing revolutionary, but the BBC's Six O'Clock News had a peek at SL on Monday. Not the most insightful reporter on the planet, but a pretty level-headed look all the same.

Wii explained, by those who created it.

I thought djmermaid might be tickled by these Queen of All Cosmos earmuffs that mycroftb noticed. ^_^ And these Bearhands mittens are way cute, available in fleece of various colors, plus a couple types of fake fur.

I never realised it could be possible for a Tellytubby to have a Scottish accent..

If you're in the Bay Area, and enjoyed Pixar's Cars, you might want to wander along to the Morgan Auditorium on Dec 1, when the San Francisco Society of Illustrators will be hosting Pixar Under the Hood: The Making of Cars. "A team of Pixar's creative talent, led by Lighting Technical Director Jeremy Vickery, will break down the process of what it takes to make a winning collaborative effort...concepts, component development, production fine tuning, tech tweaks...plus a few special surprises on the way to the checkered flag of completion."

Don't suppose anyone knows what's up with Taco, over on SL? foxymoonheart mentioned they'd apparently taken it down in protest at the island rate increases, which I understand have now been pushed back to Feb 2008 (for existing islands, not new ones). Is the place gone for good? I really hope not, as it was a great example of the fun one can have with a sim, and one of only a surprisingly small number of toony venues.

Sweet Valerian ep.12 is now out. ^_^

You scored as Pussy Galore. You are Pussy Galore, the heroine who worked for Goldfinger, but saved the day when you met a man who changed your life forever. And with a name like that, you have to be good in the sack too!


Pussy Galore


Miss Moneypenny


Bond. James Bond.


Honey Ryder


Aurich Goldfinger




Felix Leiter




Which James Bond character are you?

I was just watching the Three Hundred Big Boys episode of Futurama last night, where Fry decides to spend his $300 on a hundred cups of coffee.. never quite got that far, personally. Too much caffeine just sends me into a snooze.

Hmm. Wonder what taco pie would be like.. I've heard Frito Pie's quite big in parts of Texas. Could imagine it being pretty good, actually - and I do have a definite weakness for crunchiness.
Funny, I watched that one a couple of nights ago. The "100th coffee" scene is *gorgeous*, ne?
That was quite a beautiful bit of direction. We've seen a lot of "bullet time"-related gags in the past few years, but that one gave a nod in that direction whilst still being its own joke, as well as simply quite a lovely bit of storytelling.

Reminds me, I should check when those new episodes are due - was that summer 2007?

Also an outstanding piece of storytelling, but one I doubt I can ever watch again, is Jurassic Bark. Egad.
