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 out and about

Spent the day outside and not on the internets. Hopefully will have pictures tomorrow.

Todd Wheeler goes the self-publishing route with Mad Endeavor Books. Good luck, Todd.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday, it's fairy tale on fairy tale action. Or at least the battle of Snow White Retelling Trailers. I'll agree with most of what the reviewer is saying about these, however I've also seen "Snow White and the Huntsman" before. At least if I mix several movies together. And the T2 mirror? Puh-leaze. Look, mirrors are magic doors. No need to "spice it up." Also, the exploding into fractals, yeah, seen it. But wait, Julia Roberts is the old witch/fairy? Sigh. Watched her career all the way through maiden, matron, and now crone.

Well, so much for "personalized medicine" being the cancer killer. Now, it works for some cancer, but like all cancer therapies, doesn't translate well to other cancers (or even cancer patients). (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Sometimes I really hate my profession. While it's probably not much worse than having booth babes sell your merchandise, putting QR codes on their butts feels like a line has been crossed somewhere.

On the politicization and misinterpretation of science. At least as to how it relates to the Gulf Oil Spill. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

And in the latest whackaloon aspect of this campaign, apparently federal lands and national parks are on the chopping block. Holy crap. (Grokked from Jay Lake)
