Rabbit rabbit!

Am okay. Was really tired yesterday, and expect the same today.

Support Our 'Zines Day!
Does what it says on the tin. Read here and talk about your favorite SF/F zines! My time this morning is severely limited, but I will throw in a plug for Hugo-Award-winning Electric Velocipede, who published my first work evar, and are publishing three more pieces over the next year. There are a bunch of other 'zines I love and will talk about if I manage to get any internet access this afternoon.

* People speaking out AGAINST Polanski. I am going to sit down next week and write them all thank-you letters.
* The oldest living things in the world.

Daily Science
Earlier this month, the first fully implantable artificial heart was approved by the Food and Drug Administration. It brings hope to patients who are near death from heart failure; yet some major problems remain with it--namely, its large size and relatively short lifespan.A new concept for an artificial heart could solve some of those issues. But its innovative pulse-free architecture might also raise problems of its own.

Heh. Breakfast plans right about now with Mark. Shower, get dressed, pack backpack, lunch with a friend. Post-lunch coffee with another friend. Then a few hours to kill before I have to be at a BARCC tabling in Roslindale at 6. Seeing as I'll need to take the Orange Line, it doesn't make sense to take train + bus + walk home and be home for, what, an hour, before going back out and going walk + bus + train + train + bus + walk. I will haul my laptop and possibly get writing time. If asciikitty is working at the yarn store today, perhaps I can be shown what the hell I'm doing wrong with the stitch markers. BARCC thing's til 7:30, then I haul ass home to collapse. Thankfully tomorrow is less insane.

Dear God! A good reason to watch Luc Besson movies? I think I need my inhaler.

I'm tickled pink about Gaiman.

I would've been crushed had Gaiman come down on the other side of this.

Me too... but somehow Kirstie Alley was the one who really got to me. Not just a statement of "Guy needs to face the consequences" but she is MAD at people defending him. I wound up tearing up.. in part because it shouldn't be so surprising to see someone stand up against that bullshit.

I also would have been surprised. I notice that most of the folks on the list are writers or folks not really in Hollywood (and those that are are TV folks like Grunberg and the Bones creator). I want to see more folks like Besson and Smith who actually run in film circles saying something.

That makes two of us.

Make that more than two.

Rabbit rabbit back at ya!

My favorite 'Zine without a question is Popshifter.com. I have two articles in this month's Halloween Horrors edition--one about Sherlock Holmes and another about vampire songs.
