- Adamant Entertainment is launching a new pulp magazine called Thrilling Tales. (Found via Joe Hilliard.)
- Cate Blanchett's going to be in the fourth Indiana Jones movie.
- Had a comment recently from the creator of a blog focused on Disney's Story of Robin Hood. Not the cartoon, but the live-action movie from the '50s that influenced the Adventures of Robin Hood TV show. The blog does much more than cover the movie though. There are also interesting articles on real Robin Hood legend as well as related things like archery and quarter-staffs. It's a great read for Robin Hood fans.
- I've already mentioned my deficiency in being familiar with Tintin. Another classic strip I've never read is Terry and the Pirates. That's about to change thanks to IDW.
- I guess the recent, fancy Godzilla DVD did pretty well, because the next two in the series, Godzilla Raids Again and Mothra Vs. Godzilla, are getting the same treatment.
- Steve Niles has a new 30 Days of Night series coming out. The kicker is that it's illustrated by Bill Freaking Sienkiewicz.
- Did you know that while you're touring the Lord of the Rings locations in New Zealand, you can also stay in a Hobbit motel?
- I've already got Disney's Peter Pan on DVD and don't care enough about special features to buy it again, but even if I wanted to upgrade, I wouldn't get this recent version. I'd wait for the next one. (By the way, even if you're not interested in Pan, that last link is worth reading for confirmation that studios really are actively trying to make you buy the same film over and over again.)
- Did you know that while you're touring Star Wars locations in Tunisia, you can also stay at the Lars farm?
- Not really scifi related, but Nathan Fillion (Firefly) has a new movie coming out where he gets to hit on Keri Russell (Felicity). Looks pretty good too.
Writing is Hard
- Miss Snark says, "Don't ever talk about your novel to anyone socially until it's published. Ever." Then explains why. I wish I'd learned that lesson ten years ago. I still get the occasional, "How's the novel coming?" To which I have to reply, "Which one? I've discarded and restarted so many over the years that I forget which one you know about."
