dalek, exterminate

Robert Carlyle, no wait, not Stargate Universe, but Doctor Who

excerpt as all the articles are the same...

The Glaswegian will lead a motley crew on a voyage across the universe in a new sci-fi series based on the hit Stargate movie and TV franchise.

That move will pave the way for a rival to take control of the Tardis when the next Doctor is announced later this week

Cool. Yes! We hear who the new Doctor Who will be this week? However, I do suspect I'll go "who?" (bad pun) as it will no doubt be an actor from the UK and since not a lot of UK stuff gets to the States except for PBS "Inspector Lynley" stuff, I'll have to research him. Her? Who?


The end of the world, but first a word from the Horrible people

It's bad enough Wall Street has ruined everyone's finances through greed and stupidity, and Stargate Atlantis got axed, but now.... NASA reports Dec. 16, 2008: NASA's five THEMIS spacecraft have discovered a breach in Earth's magnetic field ten times larger than anything previously thought to exist. Solar wind can flow in through the opening to "load up" the magnetosphere for powerful geomagnetic storms. But the breach itself is not the biggest surprise. Researchers are even more amazed at the strange and unexpected way it forms, overturning long-held ideas of space physics. REST AT LINK ABOVE. It's a really interesting article.

But anyhoo, back to stuff we mere mortals can do something about. Yes, after eons of waiting (months?) fans can never get their grubby paws on Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long - on DVD. Yes, read TV's review of the DVD, and you can order it for the outlandish price ;) of $9.99 exclusively at Amazon. Since it's released on the 19th (this Friday), it's possibel I suppose to have it in your mitts before Xmas? And, for the local and sturdy folk, since the weather prediction is sleet, visit the Paley Center in NYC for an actual sing-a-long. Click on link for details :)
