Tek danas sam primijetio prvotravanjske vijesti na Locusovom portalu. Ove tri su me posebno nasmijale:

12 Killed in SFWA Flamewar – Vijest o raspravi na zatvorenom forumu SFWA, koja se… rasplamsala.

The outbreak of a vicious flamewar on a Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA) private forum of has resulted in the deaths of at least 12 authors, though the death toll could climb much higher. “Many writers live alone,” said a SFWA spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity. “They could be pulling bodies out from behind computer monitors for months.”

DVD Review of The Star Wars Holiday Special (Platinum Edition) – Zanimljiv osvrt još jednog Lucasovog izdanja. Warserima predlažem da zaobiđu ovaj tekst.

The Star Wars Holiday Special is prima facia evidence that drug use in Hollywood had gotten out of hand by the late 1970s. “Bad” doesn’t even begin to describe it. Nor “awful.” Think “excruciating” and you’re starting to get the picture. Showing this DVD to POWs would constitute a violation of the Geneva Convention.

Charles Stross Attains Posthuman Status – Svi koji su pročitali neku Strossovu priču i nakon nje se osjećali izgubljeno i zbunjeno, shvatit će o čemu se tu radi…

At exactly 1:07 PM GMT on March 31, 2005, noted science fiction author Charles Stross ceased his existence as a baseline human being and entered an unknowable posthuman condition. The precipitating event, as far as experts can determine, was Stross’s acquisition of a new Sony PSP game machine.
