Let's hope I didn't bork too many of the links

Okay, I think we need to have a little night linkspam. I admit, these are cherry-picked from my Twitter page (which you can read whether you're on Twitter or not), but I'm still trying to get back on my feet and/or normal work schedule. I also have a more expansive raw linkspam feed from my Google Reader on FriendFeed. (I've always had that, in fact.) So you see, the thing is, I'm reading the news; I just haven't been posting it all here as a list. Which I should, because it's fun. I'm just... tired and out of sorts, and have been for a long time now.

Short version: Yes, I heard about the dippy Twilight fan and/or brilliant troll who thinks that The Wolfman ripped off New Moon.

Short version ETA: Yes, I heard about the handmade emo-scented Twilight vulva soap. No, I'm not linking to it. Y'all a bunch of handcrafty trolls over there at Etsy, for real.

Long version:

To recap, I went to see The Book of Eli (discussion) on Friday and then Shutter Island (discussion - SPOILERS) on Saturday, the latter by myself, because I Do What I Want When I Can Convince Someone To Drop Me Off There. I did not see The Wolfman, mostly because the times weren't good for me.

@kitalita: On an unrelated note, I'm sitting in my living room with a shotgun and three pit bulls.

@cleolinda: At the theater. Omg why am I here so early. PS Don't bother robbing my house, everyone else is home. And Sam will cute you to death.

@cleolinda: I love Bradford Howe. His lips say "You're watching ScreenVision!" but his eyes say "I hate you all."

They really do, y'all.

RT @neilhimself: Over at the Grauniad a bunch of writers give their 10 (or less) bits of writing advice. I managed 8 -

Meanwhile, I didn't get to go to Neil Gaiman's reading at the University of Alabama last week, which was fine; judging from what he said on Twitter afterward, it seems to have gone well ("Thank you all at the Bama for such an amazing reception. Happy, exhausted author. You lot are wonderful").

Apparently Tonner also got a Prince of Persia license (no pictures yet). Insert "WHERE IS MY ALICE" macro, etc. Word on the street is that someone at Toy Fair (YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. Heh) made Robert Tonner aware of this journal. God help us all.

Even James Cameron Says 3D Craze Is Stupid. That is to say, he makes the very good point that if your movie isn't shot in 3D, and if there's no artistic point to its three-dimensionality, it's bullshit to convert the format just because that's what people do now.
