Only a step in the right direction, but, a welcome move - "A bill to legalize same-sex marriage in California cleared an Assembly committee Tuesday despite arguments that it violates a gay marriage ban approved by voters five years ago. The 6-3 vote by the Assembly Judiciary Committee marked the first test for the measure, which would amend the state family code to define marriage as between "two persons" instead of between a man and a woman."

Sounds like Warner Brothers have been hearing something of a protest regarding the Loonatics: 'Warner Bros. Entertainment spokesman Scott Rowe said his company wants the thousands of fans upset by the made-over characters unveiled in February to know "that's NOT all, folks." Those "early drawings" have been revised into characters that are softer and less menacing, he said.' (What, like, say.. the originals?)

If you live in Hong Kong, you can now subscribe to a symmetric 1Gbps service, for $215/mo. (If money's tight, there's also 100Mbps and 10Mbps services at $34 and $16) So, transferring a DVD would take under a minute.

If the US had the same population density as Singapore, the former's population would be around 60,522,638,806.

Agh, I missed a recent release of VLC! It sports many UI tweaks, as you can see.

Hm.. seems HP's wanting to transition to smaller drives, much as the industry moved from 5.25" a while back. "The new [10,000rpm] 2.5-inch hard disk drives were developed by Fujitsu, Hitachi, and Seagate, and will be used by HP in upcoming ProLiant server and storage products".
 
 
 
 
 
 
Sadly, it seems animation's long played second fiddle at WB. Just look at the merchandising in the now defunct WB Stores - all the characters would just be shown in the same few stock poses, reused interminably, slapped onto any media. At least there was a fair effort made with "Back in Action", though it still suffered from a bit of a limp script, and they've finally worked out that yes, there really are people wanting to see all of them in the classics - hence the recent DVD collections.

Oh, gods.. watched any of them lately? Just savor that animation, that writing, and the music.. and it could happen again, if WB were to rediscover a positively zinging part of its history.

While the dinosaurs work out what to do, the Flash scene's overflowing with energy - and no few talents, too, as with the Everyone Else video, amongst many others. ^_^ (Indeed, Tamala 2010 was primarily animated in Flash - an entire feature!)
This is the first time actually seeing this character design; however, I was already having doubts about the series from when I first read about it. I have seen what WB has already done with updated versions of my old favorite characters.

There is no replacement for Bob Clampet, Chuck Jones, I. (Fritz) Freling, Leon Schlesinger, and most of all, Mel Blanc. I even love Mel's live-action stuff with Jack Benny.
