The time travel cheat sheet is funny AND useful.

"Aluminium used to be more valuable than gold. Depending on where you are, it still is. Extract it from rocks by dissolving them in molten cryolite and running current through it. You'll find cryolite in Greenland, latitude 61.2 longitude -48.16. Look for glassy white crystals."

I just realized the Tommy McCook track is Dr Zhivago. Pass the duchy...

So Cat Shit One is like Watership Down meets the war on terror? Cool.

“So Cat Shit One is like Watership Down meets the war on terror?”

The setting of the new CG version seems to have been updated from the original manga, which was, I think, set in Vietnam.

The online friendship-thing is interesting. I myself tend to go from sharing to advocacy without the two intermediate dialogue steps. I wonder if that means that I sell my advocacy cheaper than I should, or if I view the relationship as so asymmetric that I don't see myself making relevant contributions.

SG,

If the whole “animals-at-war” thing appeals, you may like the “We3” graphic novel by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely, which is also being made into a film.

"I myself tend to go from sharing to advocacy without the two intermediate dialogue steps."

I do "private dialogue" "advocacy" and "investment" but not "love slave".

All things considered, that’s probably for the best.

Speaking of helicopters, have you seen this?

Karen,

Yes, thanks, but I’m still not feeling enthused. I saw a clip featuring Emma Frost, one of my favourite characters, and it looked miscast and a bit naff. The pre-release muttering is pretty bad too. I think Julia’s keen, though. I think she’s waiting for Hugh Jackman’s shirt to fall off, which I gather happens quite a lot.

Thanks for the free B-movie link. Tonight it's Dark Star and Invasion of the Neptune Men!
