Just a few things

Oops, I was wrong--I had started writing today's first entry yesterday, so today is actually day six. Because I know you care.

sigma7: "Comics creator extraordinaire and LJ-er Lea Hernandez, aka divalea, just lost her house, artwork and several pets in a house fire. Thankfully she and the family made it out unhurt, but obviously they can use any help they can get. Paypal info here, but prayers and good vibes are also good. She's one of the good ones, so keep her and the family in your thoughts."

Design for new WTC towers unveiled. I don't quite have an opinion on any of it yet; I just know that it is destined, by law, to cause a lot of yelling and arguing.

Mice don't actually like cheese. Instead, scientists say, they prefer grains and fruits to something like cheese that they wouldn't find in their natural habitat, so it would be better to bait a mousetrap with cereal. I hear the free-range Froot Loop works well.

Sean Bean and Tilda Swinton to play Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. The most intriguing thing about the whole project to me, though, is that the cowriter--i.e., the person updating from Shakespeare--is apparently the same actor who was Mark Antony in that hilarious-awful Empire thing I never finished recapping (shhhhh) and was Brad Pitt's right hand man in Troy. Which is... something else I wrote about.

Picture from the Hairspray set. I am not looking forward to the time when we will be bombarded with trailers and posters and commercials of this movie, because... that ain't right. The triangular hair is all wrong for a jaw like that, for starters. Bouffant, Travolta, bouffant!

Guerilla artist Banksy tampered with 500 copies of Paris Hilton's debut album "across 48 record shops in the UK by replacing the CD with his own remixes featuring such titles as Why am I Famous?, What Have I Done? and What Am I For? as well as swapping out her picture on the CD sleeve with one of her topless and [another] with a dog's head." Seriously, click through to the link where they have scans of the tampered CD booklet. Not only is it priceless, but I would rather pay for that than I would the real thing.

You know you're a geek when you get this joke: "Beren For Congress: He'll clean up government single-handed!"
