First off, there are a couple of dates I failed to note yesterday amid honoring
our three great Americans. Yesterday marked the beginning of the Chinese New
Year (thanks Ant
), this is a two week long celebration, so I guess I'm not
technically late, but I certainly don't want to forget to wish a happy Year of
the Horse. Yesterday also was Fat Tuesday, which makes today Ash Wednesday, and
probably also makes for some Mardi Gras celebrants who are reaching for the aspirin
Finally, you may have seen this elsewhere already, but if you haven't, the
folks at Can't get enough Futurama
send word that Fox Broadcasting is planning on making Futurama a thing of the
past, and there's A Future For Futurama Petition
online with an attempt to save the animated series (and unlike The Family Guy
petition, this one does not threaten an impractical boycott of sponsoring products).
I highly recommend today's media of the day. The mind-mending adventures of
Steve Elvis America and Go-Go Morningstar Perfect Assassin are not to be missed.
