End of the world, plus other stuff (cuz it's cold and rainy outside)

A couple signs of the impending apocalypse...

Jif peanut butter. It used to be you'd tell folk how tasty your food was, now theyr'e telling you won't get poisoned. Seriously. Just saw an ad about how 'safe' it was to eat. (Never mind that it's the 'industrialized' (gack) stuff that's got the salmonella). Ohmygosh, the government is twittering! Yes, went to their FDA site and you too can now get tweets about bad food! http://twitter.com/fdarecalls. Jus thope they're not as prolific as Wil Wheaton. I had to un-follow Mr. Wheaton cuz I'd check my twitter when I got home from work and find myself buried under just his tweets.

Dollhouse. Okay, I know lots of folk think Joss Whedon is IT, but after watching two episodes of this show, despite liking the actors, I don't think I'll ever go back again. Last Friday's episode in which the main character was programmed into - face it, a live blow-up sex doll for a client - was distasteful. Okay, yes, sure, she killed the SOB who hunted her (and good grief, that plot point was so transparent it was ridiculous) so she's reclaiming whatever, but it doesn't make up for the fact that this show treats women (as the male dolls aren't seen doing much at all from what I can see) as definite objects.

Remaking 80s movies - just go here -http://www.cracked.com/article_16665_5-upcoming-remakes-80s-movies-that-must-be-stopped.html - one's already in the theater, and alas, doing well, so that means they'll keep at it! Nooooooooooooo!

But on the other hand...

http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/ - a neat blog on grammar. Some fanfic writers could definitely use it, and come to think of it, a couple local newspapers could too! ;)
