Veterans Day


Just a couple things... an excellent article/opinion piece on the true cost of war...

On Veterans Day, feeling the cost of war...
Afghanistan was abstract, until my friend's flag-draped coffin came home...

And Damian Kindler posted this link on his twitter today. Someone gathered together reunion videos, of veterans coming home and being greeted by their pets. Very heartwarming. I never knew a dog's tail could wag that fast!

CW to air 2-hour Justice Society-themed SMALLVILLE movie

 

Excerpt: Entertainment Weekly has learned that the CW are planning to air the upcoming Justice Society-heavy Smallville two-parter (“Society” and “Legends) as a two hour movie event on January 29th 2010. Penned by comic bookwriter Geoff Johns, the television movie will feature the arrival of Justice Society members Hawkman (Michael Shanks), Doctor Fate (Brent Stait), Stargirl (Britt Irvin), and the return of Phil Morris as Martian Manhunter. The storyline apparently involves Clark crossing paths with the Justice Society characters, who have come out of retirement to meet up with an old foe.

and.... got an email from Creation. David Hewlett will be doing the April 2010 Vancouver Stargate con in Vancouver. Ah, to dream. He's there, Jason, Joe and more....(including Brian J. Smith of SGU, whom I honestly wouldn't mind seeing).  Gold tickets are $579. Heck, it's the airfare, the hotel, etc. and photo ops that would kill me. I need a new car.... Drat, wish they'd do a con like that on the EAST coast.


And guess I'll be watching SMALLVILLE again. Haven't watched it in years...
