To begin: the new Made of Fail, "Self-Esteem is for Everybody," is up. I'm not on it (Scarlett is of Scarlettopia and the Spoony Experiment is, much to Dayna's twitterpation), but Dayna and I were talking a few days before, and she had me write down what I was saying so she could read it on air (about 28 minutes in), and it was: my advice to geek boys. My sad, hard-won, somewhat embittered advice. Alas, earwax.
Also, the Christopher Pike thing just got better. (Scroll down to "ETA again.") Not only is he now accusing caligirl_08 of being the one with an army of Amazon review sockpuppets, he's claiming that bookfails is "a livejournal community sponsored by someone of Turkish background who has taken things much too far and is trying to rob fiction authors of their artistic license." Such artistic license includes claiming that the Aryans of India are the same as the "Nordic ideal" Aryans.
However: sad news as well.

It's Official: Christopher Nolan Will Direct 'Batman 3.' My understanding is that the holdup was that Nolan wasn't sure he wanted to do it, not that anyone at the studio would have dreamed of going anywhere else. I mean, in addition to the emotional issues surrounding the second movie--how in the world is he supposed to top that? I'd take a couple of years off, too.
