Behold! Random Links!

Time to do this, I guess, since I have decent internet access at the moment.

TIGERS LEOPARDS vs Pumpkins!: Video of big cats playing with pumpkins. It's remarkable how much they remind me of my own cats.

6 Famous Unsolved Mysteries (With Really Obvious Solutions): Not all that mysterious, perhaps, but very funny. Remember folks, some things really do have simple explanations!

Exclusive Farscape Interview: A nice interview with Keith R. A. DeCandido and Matt Gagnon, writer and editor, respectively, of the upcoming Farscape comics. Warning: contains spoilers for the TV miniseries!

Majel B. Roddenberry, wife of 'Star Trek' creator, dies: A lot of people sent me this news while I was having my computer issues, so I thought I'd at least link to an obituary. I suppose it's inevitable that we'd start losing the original Trek actors in a steady stream eventually, but it still makes me sad.

Caprica Promo Now Live: Promo for the new Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica. I have no idea whether this is going to be worth watching or not -- I'm always leery about prequels -- but the promo at least looks kind of interesting.

ST:XI-The animated episode: The sound from the ST:XI movie trailer, set to images from the 70s animated Trek series. Personally, I think that makes it about ten times more appealing. But then, I liked the cartoon series.

Top Ten Astronomy Pictures of 2008: The Bad Astronomer picks his top space images of the year. Man, what a cool, cool universe we live in.

Mmmm, Delicious Gingerbread Geekery: Yes, it's geeky gingerbread! I think I like the K-9 best.


  1. The "Daily Telegraph" obituary of Majel Roddenberry includes one excellent joke by her which I hadn't seen before:

  2. I heard Gene Roddenberry make the same joke once in an interview, except I think the way he put it was, "Obviously, I could not legally have done it the other way around." :)

  3. The gingerbread objects are creative, but those people need to get out more.

  4. Eh, getting out is overrated.

  5. Now that I think about it, I wonder if the gingerbread TARDIS is bigger on the inside.

  6. For authenticity, it really ought to be.
