Damned in a single sentence: She has vociferously campaigned against embryo experimentation, Sunday trading, pornographic videos and fluoride.

What at first looks like help for people with poor imagination faculties rapidly grows into a Cronenbergish story of dubious-taste therapy that may be more damaging than the experience it aims to relieve. Buy the film rights!

I was sent spam for "one-click history deletion" today. Oh, the history deletion button. Shiny, shiny button ... it didn't turn out to be what I thought it was. *sigh*

I'm not going to link to what Orson Scott Card had to say about same-sex marriage. Instead, something positive: when I read something online I hate, I go read Morford. He sets the world to rights.

On the subject of despairing in all humanity, I've added up the times and I think I can make it to see Dogville and Le Corbeau in a single evening. Oh yeah, beat down that human spirit.

But, what's this? A minimate Frodo? Joy reigns again! (Also available, Aragorn, Legolas, Twilight Frodo ... and an uruk-hai in chain mail pants!)

The world's not so bad after all.

Gimme Some!
Gotta have a teeny Saruman! I can't go buying DVDs, though, especially since my player doesn't work...I think it may come to a heist at Tower Records. Need a Gandalf for my obsessed sister, too...

minimates are lovely in theory
... but in practice they're overpriced artificially-created collectables; so the nicer the doll, the more expensive and the harder to get hold of it'll be. I mean, they could make the nice ones generally available, but that'd be against the whole collectables ethos ... so you go looking for Frodo and only find endless orcs.

Bah. I'm not rich enough for minimates. And if I was, I'd probably be spending it on champagne and tarts.
