Some of you may be, like me, old enough to remember the cheesy Spiderman tv series, first aried in 1967 ( a year before I was born) and replayed throughout the 70s. Marvel is now releasing all the old Spiderman shows in sequence every Thursday (as of the date of this post, 8 episodes are available).

After Watchmen - Suvudu - Science Fiction and Fantasy Books, Movies, and Games

If you're unsure what to read after Watchmen (probably not. If you're like me you have a stack of unread stuff) DC wants to help. They've compiled a list of what they consider to be graphics novels and comics that you should read. The list includes Fables, Transmetropolitan (in fact, most of Warren Ellis's non-mainstream work), and many others.

Splash Page » NYCC: Brian Bendis Confirms Live-Action ‘Powers’ TV Series On FX, Draft Completed [UPDATED!]

Those who follow Bendis's "Powers" comic book series (about cops working in a world populated by superheros) may be interested to learn that Bendis has approved a script for a pilot live-action version of his comic. For those who don't follow the comic (that is only released in trade paperback format), the comic follows two cops, one a former superhero who lost his powers, as they attempt to solve cases in a world where superheros can both help and hinder their investigations. In effect, the story makes superheroes part of the landscape within which Bendis presents a police drama rather than a "superhero" story per se.

A new theory says that when you feel sleepy, it because parts of your brain are already asleep. The new theory says sleep per se occurs when the number of groups of independent brain cells exceeds some threshold.

Beyonce has decided that she wants to do a superhero movie so has met with DC and Warner Brothers executives to pitch herself as the next Wonder Woman. Apparently she came up with this idea when she saw the costume originally warn by Lynda Carter. Maybe she'd have better luck if she had worn a chocolate Wonder Woman costume (like the one shown here).

In Ottawa, city council is back to considering Light Rail after originally canceling the project. The report recommends that they start by building a track from Blair Station to Tunney's Pasture as Phase 1 of the 3 phase plan. The total cost is expected to be more than $5 billion and be completed by 2031. Money will come out of things like the recent elimination of funding to various city festivals including the Tulip Festival and Bluesfest.

Swiss researchers believe they may have found a way to recreate the rich sound of the Stradivarius using mushrooms. The mushrooms are applied to the violin, not consumed by the listener.

According to NASA, the Phoenix mission as officially ended. Rest in Peace, Phoenix. The team hasn't heard from the craft since November 2nd. Meanwhile, India has succeeded in placing a spacecraft in orbit around the moon.

A recent poll of election day voters in the US determined that more than 20% of voters, and almost 40% of voters under 30, have only cell phones. This is of particular concern to pollsters who typically call only landlines.

Snagged from Twenty Sided

Darths & Droids takes the Shamus Young's DM of the Rings concept and applies it to Stars Wars, beginning at Episode I. What sold it for me was the first plausible explanation for the existence of Jar-Jar Binks. The story follows a GM's attempt to run an Star Wars RPG while being pulled hopelessly off track by his players.
