Something else I found out about the Radcliffe Equus: Will Kemp is playing the horse. As my sister said, "I'm not sure whether to feel sorry for him or not." It's a great move for his career, or what's left of it after Van Helsing, considering that the play is not only one of the great modern works, but also a huge publicity magnet this time around. On the other hand... he's playing the horse, and Harry Potter's riding.

Aqua Teen Hunger Force causes bomb scare in Boston. Note: the light boards appeared in other cities as well, none of whom flipped their shit and called the bomb squad. Furthermore, arrests have now been made in Boston. Over on JournalFen:
keleri: Maybe I'm just an ig'nant Canadian, but could anyone please explain to me why the hell that Lite-Brite picture thing would produce a bomb scare?NEVER FORGET.
ruaki: That's what I'm trying to figure out. But upon reading the article, I think it was because "It had a very sinister appearance," Coakley told reporters. "It had a battery behind it, and wires."
sepiamagpie: Don't laugh. Once, a battery just leapt up and tore out my pa's throat. We had to put it down after that.

An email from Joy: "I'm an avid lurker at your journal and I know you'll promote communities and such if they are for a good cause. Well there's a little boy here in Ottawa, Canada who is sick with Leukemia and all he wants for his birthday (May 30th) are birthday cards. He wants to be in the Guiness Book of World Records and apparently the record is 3 million. So what we're trying to do is beat that just for him. I've made an LJ community to promote more awareness for him. I was just wondering if you could link to it in your journal shortly? It would be so helpful and greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!"
fadagaski: "Okay, so I never thought I'd be one to ask for free advertising. However, at the request of my dad, can you please take a look at his site. It's for authors aspiring to publish - the idea being that you submit a sample of your work for publishers to browse at their leisure, rather than harrassing/stalking said publishers in the dim hope that they read your manuscript. Anywho, if you think the site/premise is interesting, I'd REALLY REALLY REALLY appreciate a mention in the linkspam."
dakiwiboid: "I'm one of the moderators for 021407, Saint Valentine's Letter Box, a community where people can leave Valentine messages for those they love or just like, even anonymously, as long as they play nicely. Team Cupid does check for rude messages or flamewars, but to judge by our experience last year, most of what gets left in this community is simple, sentimental delight!"
bigeyedrabbit: "Forgive me if I am trespassing on your crankiness in asking this, but if you could possibly mention my friend Ariane Kirtley's project in the linkspam sometime, I would be most beholden to you. In a nutshell, they try to provide water to some of the poorest areas in the world, giving the people there a shot at maintaining some semblance of their traditional way of life. Good people, good cause, and I'm just trying to get the word out. :) Thanks."
And finally, I leave you with: Puppy Bowl III!
