What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo sinks, drowning in the inkiness of the longest night

When do you know you're a writer? One of the answers is when another writer calls you one.

Jay Lake is going to ConFusion. Hmm, when Link Salad and Linkee-poo meet in real life, will it be like particle and anti-particle or Indiana Jones and Renne Belloq? "I am but a shadowy reflection of you…" (actually, I have met Jay Lake in real life, for like 5 minutes at World Fantasy, I doubt he remembers, he was focused on other things)

A brief history of changelings. The article is specifically about one novel and their take, but some good general info about the belief.

That comment on the Hobbit trailer has to be a joke. Got to be. Must be.

Well, Eric, considering when I went to The Fellowship of the Ring, the early twenty-somethings behind me had this comment on the end of the film. "That's where they ended it? That's a stupid ending. I don't understand why they would have done that. That's lame."

Or the comment when we went to see Contact, "'For Carl'? Who's Carl?"

We don't discuss the idiocy of the V for Vengeance crowd.
