click opera - Everything you know isn't a panda
"This is the decade in which you will finally make the switch from quantity to value. One ramification: you will move from an expensive place where you have to do a lot of meaningless work just to exist to a cheap place where you can exist easily and can therefore afford to dedicate yourself to work that really means something to you."

Sleater-Kinney's guitarist tests out Rock Band. - By Carrie Brownstein [Slate Magazine]
"When I looked carefully, I realized I was having a party where people were sitting around playing video games. And, really, if you are going to play [Rock Band] with a group of friends for more than a night, shouldn't you just form a real band? There is something sad about the thought of four teenagers getting Rock Band for Christmas and spending all of their after-school time pretending to know how to play."

I know Daniel Radcliffe's getting old, but seriously. by Rebecca Swain Vadnie [Orlando Sentinel]
Some advice from a fellow fanboy about book adaptations: always assume they will suck and then be pleasantly surprised. In the best case scenario, you're paying Hollywood $10 to show you how defective your imagination is. In the worst, you will never be able to read Dr. Seuss again without hearing Jim Carrey scream in your ear. I'm no purist, but it's a strategy that's served me well since Watership Down, and that goes double for next year's Watchmen.
