Neil Gaiman's Journal: Iain Banks. With or without the M.
If you've never read any of his books, read one of his books. Then read another. Even the bad ones were good, and the good ones were astonishing.

At Airport Gate, a Cyborg Unplugged - New York Times
"Without a fully functional system, he said, he found it difficult to navigate normally. He said he fell at least twice in the airport, once passing out after hitting his head on what he described as a pile of fire extinguishers in his way. He boarded the plane in a wheelchair."

The Sad World Of The Misunderstood House Spider | Runt Of The Web
If there’s one arthropod with an unfortunately bad rap with the human world, it’s the spider. Generally reclusive and non-threatening to people, spiders eat all the creatures that annoy humans (mosquitoes, flies, roaches) while occupying the empty crevices of human shelter. And yet their very presence makes the average person go after these benevolent creatures with a fury. And so is the sad world of the Misunderstood Spider:

Sources: Daisies, Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Canceled - E! Online
Damn. The crappy new Knight Rider continues on, yet shows like Pushing Daisies and Wonderfalls get cancelled. ""I think the writers’ strike did it," Chenoweth (Daisies' Olive Snook) tells us tonight of the cancellation. "I think that the ratings for all the shows are poor this year, and it’s not what the networks were hoping for. I’m not sure why ABC decided to ax our show. I know they don’t own us, so I know that probably has something to do with it, but who knows?""

The scariest thing about Sarah Palin isn't how unqualified she is - it's what her candidacy says about America | The Smirking Chimp
"The great insight of the Palin VP choice is that huge chunks of American voters no longer even demand that their candidates actually have policy positions; they simply consume them as media entertainment, rooting for or against them according to the reflexive prejudices of their demographic, as they would for reality-show contestants or sitcom characters. Hicks root for hicks, moms for moms, born-agains for born-agains."

Movie Voice Guy Don LaFontaine Has Died «
"The legendary movie voice guy known as Don LaFontaine passed away on Monday at the age of 68. Entertainment Tonight is reporting that LaFontaine passed away of complications from Pneumothorax, a condition that is the result of a collapsed lung. Why am I writing this tribute to Don? Because even though you might not know it, Don is the voice that you recognize from nearly every last movie trailer and every last movie voiceover. He's got that deep, thrilling voice that you'll instantly recognize the moment you hear it. He may never have been seen in any actual movies, but to me, he has been and always will be the voice of movies and movie trailers. Don and his voice will most certainly never be forgotten."
