More Star Wars vs Fellowship of the Ring stuff
from Salon.

One thing I've done since I started work on CONvergence's programming is to see what other conventions do, even if I'm not going to the convention. It's Arisia in Boston this weekend, so here is their Programming schedule.

(Also, if you are reading this and are interested in CONvergence's programming, and would like to volunteer for panels or advise on what we have up, send me e-mail.)

[Science fiction conventions I am likely to go to this year include Supercon, Gallifrey One, Marscon, Minicon, CONvergence, Diversicon, Chicago TARDIS, and perhaps one other...]


It must be Bunnies.

Fox to close ``X-Files'' in May
Yeah, it is about time -- but it was a good series, especially in some of the middle years, and I think it was terribly influential.

Wednesday, January 09, 2002 Arts & Entertainment | "Lord of the Rings" vs. "Star Wars"
Really good article comparing the two; it used to be common to compare the LotR book to the original Star Wars, and now it's inevitable to compare the movies...

(and while I really, really love Fellowship -- it's not better than either A New Hope or The Empire Strikes Back.)


I think we've got to be on the far side of the recession if Dilbert is unempployed...

has some nice pictures of the Fellowship of the Ring Jewelery.

PvP was off-line for a couple of days, but it is back. Very funny on line comic, and I should get an issue of the real-world book sometime.

On the applicability of The Lord of the Rings to modern life...

MTV News Online - 'Star Wars' Goes Pop: 'NSYNC Film Cameos For 'Episode II'
No, that's not true, that's impossible!


[TACHYON TV] is very funny.

The Norm went and got married. I still expect to enjoy the strip, even though it probably means I'm less like the character, as I'm still single.
