The Encyclopedia of Arda is a neat on-line Lord of the Rings Encyclopedia, if you, like me, are digging through all of your Tolkien after seeing the movie...

Monday, December 24, 2001

Since seeing the fantastic Lord of the Rings:The Fellowship of the Ring twice over the last week, I've been going through all sorts of stuff. The various books and things, and then I found an online Tolkien Encyclopedia that I'm going to do some digging through before I manage to go to sleep.

And have a good Christmas, for those of you who care about such things...

Karlsweb E-Zine looks like a good Farscape site...

(I don't know what I'm going to do since there won't be new episodes until April....)

DorkTower has an appropriate strip today. I'm right now anxiously awaiting Lord of the Rings:Fellowship of the Ring, as Word On The Street is that it is as good as you could hope it to be.

I'm likely to get this one, I think...
After all, I was just thinking that a Tony Head album would be good after some of the recent repeats on FX where they have Giles sing...

Obituary: Scott Imes, 52, manager of Uncle Hugo's bookstore
I didn't know Scott outside of his book-dealer role, but he was always asking what I was reading, and if it was any good, and I was never really sure if I had a good answer.

History of Doctor Who on KTCA
Since I'll have been watching Doctor Who for 20 years next month, I thought this was an interesting little history of it as well. (I was pretty sure they didn't start airing it until January 1982, but I might be wrong there...)


The glories of google

Peter Davison at Prom Center
Here's a transcript of Peter Davision's discussion at the first Doctor Who convention I ever went to at the Prom Center back in 1986.

Google Search:
A usenet post I wrote back in 1994 about the first season of Babylon 5.

(oh, Google opening the archive that far back is evil, evil, evil...)

I believe that this is the first post to Usenet I ever made. It's pretty close, as it's from September of 1989, just when I started college. And what is likely my first post to rec.arts.drwho.

Needless to say, there is endless fun to be had in digging through the past like this.

I got an e-mail from Ethan after linking to his NYT article about "Urban Tribes" a few weeks ago. There's a whole site about the subject, at Urban Tribes of the Never-Marrieds by Ethan Watters, and there will be a book next year. I'll have to look at it more sometime...

Kieriahn's Farscape Starcharts
has a good summary of Farscape news. Since I'm almost completely caught up with all of the existing episodes on Sci-Fi four-times-a-week repeats, now I need to know when brand new episodes come out.

And if you haven't seen this show, they'll be starting over from the beginning of the series in about two weeks or so, and I strongly recommend it -- it's my favorite "new" (to me) show of the year.

Thursday, December 06, 2001 Technology | The strange saga of Yahoo and WebRing
I think this is an interesting story -- because it's one of those cases where Yahoo!, a site I frequently use, really messed up, and why. (

This is Brilliant

Monsters, Inc., Inc. - Pixar's quiet disdain for children. By David Samuels
I loved Monsters, Inc, but this is a really, really interesting (and disturbing) article from a different point of view...

Anyone else think this movie is going to be huge?
