Shaun Cassidy's Dark Side on Hulu
Gary Cole wickeder than Bill Lumbergh, child star Lucas Black earning his bones as a child star, the ever lovely Paige Turco and Brenda Bakke, and Sarah Paulson as a wackadoo ghost. All from the the twisted doo-ron-ron mind of TV's Joe Hardy.
And yes, like Earth-2 yesterday, this is another show I killed by liking it.

Marcher Lord Go For Launch
MLP is having a launch contest with some prizes that'd make Keanu say Whoa!
Grand Prize: Trip for 2 to 2009 ComicCON in San Diego. (Phil and I would like this very much.)
Other cool prizes include a leather-bound Lord of the Rings, space art, tombstone rubbing of Shakespeare's grave (sweet!), TV series Earth 2 on DVD (yes, please -- this is another TV series I killed by liking it...), and enough books to choke a wide-throated dragon.
Remember to tell them I sent you (my email is chris(dot)mikesell(at)gmail(dot)com).

Here's a video of his PowerPoint presentation.
(You might have to pause it after the text comes up on each slide, as the video just jumps immediately to the next slide.)

Misfits Misalign: Congratulations, Heather!
This year, a fourth member -- the only one of us entered this time around -- took first. Way to go, Heather!
Here's the list of winners.
Shout out to Val Comer whose "The Girl Who Cried Squid" took third in the category I seconded last year (but hers shoulda-oughta taken first based on title alone).
"Nolan McGarry" Revisitado
No one had, but I did find a Spanish-language review of one of my short stories, "Nolan McGarry: Space Hobo".
Spanish review: aquí; translated via babelfish: here.

28 Years Later
I finally solved the Rubik's Cube!
Yeah! Woo Hoo!! I Rock!!! (OK, I had a little help.)
Still, I can leave the 80s and get on with my life now. Well, as soon as I find Waldo....

Maybe I Can Stop Googling This Now
Command-Shift-3: screen capture of your entire screen.
Command-Shift-4: choose which area of the screen you want to capture.
Ctrl-Command-Shift-3 (or 4): capture to the Clipboard.
Now I just have to search the blog to find 'em...

Legit? Time Will Tell
Sounds good, but...
- the ad came at the end of a long chain of forwards
- there's nothing about the offer at the Starbucks website
- the logo on the cup isn't the new Pike's Peak logo
- my sister-in-law wouldn't mind me embarrassing myself showing up for free coffee when none is to be had
Then again, there's nothing at Snopes, so just maybe...
I'll try the drive-thru tomorrow. At least there I can make a quick getaway.
