Finding yourself staring at a link to a Heroes fic titled "Pretty Guardian Sailor Peter!" and wondering if it's something you want to click on.

(Still in Japan. Back to your regularly scheduled updates soon.)

From yesterday's Sydney Morning Herald Stay in Touch column:

The US Food and Drug Administration has warned the bottlers of an energy drink called Cocaine that they are guilty of false advertising, since their product does not contain any of the eponymous chemical.

Rest of article here.

From the June 2005 issue of Locus Magazine:

"Anne Rice has turned her attention from vampires and witches to a different sort of supernatural protagonist: Jesus Christ. Her new book, Christ the Lord, is set in 1st-century Palestine and begins when Jesus is seven years old. This fictional biography, based on Biblical scholarship, covers the portion of Christ's life that is not addressed in the Gospels. Rice thinks her old fans will follow her in this new direction: "They like supernatural heroes, and Jesus is one. They like outsiders, and he is one. I hope and pray they'll see the continuity, and they'll like it." Christ the Lord will be published in November 2005."

[ profile] mollyringwraith strikes again as the 'Rings' characters discuss Oscar snub.

Schala presents us with evidence of Superman subtext. Lois who?

Neil Gaiman mentions on his blog a text adventure based on Hamlet. (You remember text adventures, right? You know, 'talk to ghost', 'get dagger', etc.) Interesting note: when you type 'kiss Horatio', the game responds with 'I don't think Horatio and I are close enough for that.' Damn. I always thought - ohnevermind.

From Comic Shop News #859:

Teen Titans Robin and Superboy guest-star in Superman/Batman #7, guest-illustrated by Dreamwave's Pat Lee. The two young heroes have forged a common bond - each working in the shadows of a prominent mentor, seeking to find their own identity in the super-hero world - and now work closely as teammates. Now they must deal with Robin's shocking discovery that Superboy's genetic makeup contains DNA not only from Superman, but also from Lex Luthor. Will they let their mentors know?

Maybe all those Smallville mpreg writers are onto something after all...

In other news, Mattel is releasing a Lord of the Rings Barbie and Ken set. Yes, you read that right. It's Barbie as Arwen and Ken as Aragorn, dressed in their costumes from The Return of the King.

Is Tolkien rolling over in his grave yet?

Sig spotted on a messageboard:

If you're in jail, a good friend would bail you out. Your best friend would be sitting next to you saying: "Damn that was fun..."

Why do I think of Sirius and James when I read this?

(Remus, I'm guessing, would be the one bailing them out...)

Whenever slash writers talk about flames and abusive emails they receive, I've always felt a bit left out. No one thinks my stories are offensive enough to criticise? What, my characters aren't gay enough for you?

All that has changed with this (anonymous) review from FF.Net:

From: a;rigaraowiutdkj()

whoever the heck wrote this should have said it was slash in the summary. this is disgusting. shame on whoever wrote this.

I feel so... initiated now.

The thing is, it's a weird choice of story to be flamed for. "Sometimes" is a gentle, introspective story about realisation and self-awareness. It's not like Clark and Lex are screwing like bunnies. 'Disgusting' seems a little extreme when describing a story where they don't even hold hands.

Ah well. Feedback is feedback, they say, so I guess I can't complain about the quality of a flame.

Entslash. I kid you not. Fairly well-written Entslash at that.

Okaaay, I think I'm going to hell for that one.
