Jane’s wedding is today you guys! It’s going to be amazing! I’ve got to write it before I head there though obviously because this is Jane getting married so there’s basically a 0% chance of the party stopping before midnight.

“Owners of the Parrot AR.Drone, a midget drone that flies on four rotors, can help ESA with a new…”
Oh look it’s widespread data gathering for scientific advancement using an augmented reality layer on top of regular drone piloting. Doesn’t it suck how we don’t live in the future?

The Rise of Web Comics by PBS Arts: Off Book
So this is a good general primer to web comics and it also has an interview about Homestuck that kinda explains why I find it super interesting while not getting into how utterly bizarre it is.

No, Joss Whedon is not going to Kickstart a Firefly movie… for now
Whedon’s been saying for a while now that the problem with more Firefly isn’t really money, he’s been especially clear about this during the interviews he conducted swimming around in his money-bin of Avengers money. The problem is that everybody’s got actual jobs now which always seemed to be his main concern which led to the weird period where like every Firefly actor showed up in a recurring guest spot on Buffy or Angel which ranged from the brilliant (Gina Torres playing Oprah as an Elder God) to the…not so brilliant (Nathan Fillian as a super-strong metaphor for misogyny in institutionalized religion that forgot to pair that subtext with an actual character). Whedon is nothing if not super faithful to his actors, see also him magically bringing Clark Gregg back to life for S.H.I.E.L.D.
