I made this about a week ago and forgot to post it here. I would say most who read this blog know who I am but I’m sure there are a few who do not. The site I mention that I made is Books I Am Reading where I keep track of all of my books.

Very good advice.

These are the videos posted so far. I miss Avatar so much.

You have no idea how happy and excited I am that The Submarines’ song You Me and the Bourgeoisie is in the new iPhone commercial.

With the internet more and more people are getting their 15 minutes of fame and more and more people don’t know what to do with it.

The Five Awesome Guys channel has been hugely successful surpassing The Five Awesome Girls by double with 20,000 subscribers. But on youtube even obscurity can bring horribly mean comments from perfect strangers.

The Five Awesome Guys have stopped making videos which is fine but in addition they have begun a series of videos where they talk about how much they hate their fans.

They will argue that they are only talking about a small part of their fan base but they are making a grave mistake by generalizing.

It’s sad when people are mean to you and I’m sure the five awesome guys are getting thousands of comments from a couple hundred users they wish they were not getting. But letting a small percentage affect your decisions will just annoy everyone.

Talking bad about your fans is never good. Stop being emo guys. If youtube hasn’t taught you to ignore bad comments then I don’t know what will.

This show is pretty good. Really well acted.

A new game has appeared on youtube unbenounced to the people playing it. Author Geocaching consists of an author signing a book in a book store (preferably their own; jump to the 3 min mark) and then a fan rushing to the store to find it. I hope more authors expand this idea. Perhaps reshelving the book in a fun place.

Neal Stephenson does a pretty amazing breakdown (if dryly read) of the Speculative Fiction genera as he tries to define it and then jumps in to the intellectual stratosphere (around the 30 min mark) has he breaks down why current post structuralist literary critics look down on it as naive and unintellectual.

Very much ala Adult Swim or Adventure Time.

I’m Pretty Excited for The Wackness staring Ben Kingsley, Josh Peck, Olivia Thirlby, Mary-Kate Olsen, Method Man. Yeay for 90s period pieces.

This is all you need to know.

If Ender’s game was about helicopters this is how Ender would fly his.

I am so excited for Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog staring Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion!

Teaser from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog on Vimeo.

Great interview with Sarah Haskins. And she has a new clip out!
