Ratatouille: Small on Sidewalk

Misc Bits

  • Japan's Kaguya probe is successfully orbiting the moon in what is a major triumph for JAXA. They even have a sample of returned video footage. The moon's now available in HD, though it's still B&W.

  • Got to watch "Ratatouille" again. Remy's just too adorable. The DVD comes with a short bonus feature "Your Friend the Rat" which is a nice capsule history of rats, human interactions, and IT WAS THE DAMN FLEAS! RATS GOT THE PLAGUE TOO, YOU KNOW! :D
    Update: It's on YouTube. Thanks Octavius.

  • How many different forms can Mystery Science Theater be ressurected in? There was Riff Trax (Mike Nelson), then The Film Crew (Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, Kevin Murphy), and now Cinematic Titanic (Joel Hodgson, J.E. Weinstein, Mary Jo Pehl, and Frank Conniff). Wow.

  • Finished "Ratchet & Clank Future Tools of Destruction and Long Names". Great platform-shooter. But the ending was... a cliffhanger? a future spinoff? writers smoking bales of weed? Sad now.

  • NaNo: Passed 11K. That's a little behind the target pace but not too bad.
