Life has turned into a busy mess, but I guess that’s the nature of doing three studio courses in one semester. It doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon either!

I have a lot of stuff to hit in this post, so let’s get right to it, shall we:

– Inglorious Basterds was glorious. We discuss the film at length in the next episode of Cine-Rama (coming very soon) with special guest Eric Martin of The Trip, Comics Playground, and DC Noise. I think he’s on about 96 other podcasts too . . .

– I’ve been eating a lot of Chinese food lately. Like a lot, a lot. It’s ridiculous. And I still don’t get tired of it. Do I have a problem?

– A new super computer is set to appear as a guest on Jeopardy. http://www.popsci.com/scitech/article/2009-08/supercomputer-takes-jeopardy I just hope they remembered to program it to answer in the form of a question.

– Meet the coolest new dinosaur discovered in decades: RaptorRex! http://www.cnn.com/2009/TECH/science/09/17/tiny.t-rex.dinosaur.discovered/index.html Sure, he has powerful legs, razor-sharp teeth, and is nine feet tall, but the remains were discovered in China . . . and as we learned above, I would clearly be able to devour him before he got me.

– Jones Soda (delicious, and sadly hard to find most places) is going to be marketing a series of limited edition Dungeons and Dragons themed flavors. The flavors are set to be: Potion of Healing, Sneak Attack, Eldritch Blast, Dwarven Draught, Illithid Brain Juice (my favorite name), and Bigby’s Crushing Thirst Quencher. What? No magic missile?


And now back to making life more animated . . . .
