Variations on a theme

National Geek Day
Time also has one of those fairly regular articles about how Geeks Rule. Nothing terribly new, where we've had arguably genre concepts win both Emmys and Oscars over the past couple of years, as well as the success of many books (Harry Potter) as well.
(Amusingly, they've got Joss's last name wrong in the title of the article... but hey, it's not an easy one to spell right.)
It looks like it'll be two weeks until Mirrormask opens at the Lagoon here in Minneapolis. So at least there isn't sort of massive friday night "what do I see first" conflict here....
Serenity opens this weekend, and while I saw a preview of it a couple of months ago, I'm planning on seeing it again.

The Lamb Lies Down in St Paul
I've heard about the group off and on as I've dipped into various online Genesis or Peter Gabriel discussions over the years, and have heard lots of good things, and it looks like it's one of those rare, once-in-a-blue moon experiences that I just have to check out.
To some extent, it looks like this shares a lot in common with the various Doctor Who reconstructions of lost Doctor Who episodes that I've seen over the years -- it's a particular recreation of something that has been lost in any complete sense, as there aren't any complete video recordings of this tour, much like many of the 1960s episodes of Doctor Who no longer exist. It's a particular type of fandom that I really appreciate.

The Next Magic set
The Long Wait
Note, by that standard, we're unlikely to see Doctor Who on American television until October of 2006. And for those of us more impatient, there are always region 2 DVDs....

I wish I had thought of this.
Veer: Ideas: Behind The Typeface
And while I didn't care for Napolean Dynamite, I like this Behind the Typeface....

Michael Sheard Tributes
F&SF Fans for Katrina Relief
And since I know Jack Beven through Doctor Who fandom, whenever there is a hurricane I usually hear his voice at least once from the National Hurricane Center -- and that was true this time as well.
