I’m amazed I saw this, considering I never update my own Twitter feed, but it was retweeted by folks I follow:  Perhaps the best BBC News caption you will ever, ever see:


It’s not often Alan Moore can make one giggle.



2 things are making me happy (so far): 1) An anime version of Persona 4 (a RPG for the Playstation 2) was made and 2) it is available to watch on Hulu. Hooray!!



A webcomic I  follow, Homestuck, also entered it’s third year as of the 13th. Super cool…



I’m happy about finally reading FreakAngels by Warren Ellis.  Great webcomic; wish it had never ended… (ed. note: This series is available in book form too, for those curious to collect it for their libraries.)



Thank you to the YALSA Book Challenge (ed. note: which we’re participating in over here) – I just read Scarlet, Book 1 by Brian Michael Bendis, which I would not have picked up otherwise, and LOVED it!



I’m happy this week because My Little Pony Friendship is Magic is on Netflix streaming now and is the perfect company while I’m getting settled in my new apartment.  Now I can finally catch up on the show.  And, move in and stuff, I guess.



I’m happy with some news I saw on the Graphic Novels in Libraries Yahoo group – the Cowboy Bebop movie that Keanu Reeves was supposedly involved with seems to be on hiatus, if not cancelled!  Words cannot describe the dread I felt at the idea of Reeves playing Spike or what a live action version of my favorite anime would look like.  Yeah, it’s still listed as in development, but I feel that for the moment, I can breath a sigh of relief.  I would much rather see him doing another Bill & Ted movie… because I’m rather fond of those.
