Well, guess what kiddies? Some interesting things have occurred which will force an early start of the weekend here at ‘Buddha Central, but fear not as I shan’t leave you in the lurch completely. Here’s some things you need to know/see:
First up, (and the reason for the image) is that TV Squad is reporting the fulfilment of one of my most fervent desires: Futurama is returning to the air, courtesy of Comedy Central. I still hold that Futurama is hands down the finest animated series ever aired on network television (Stupid Fox!), so dammit, I’m happy.
Second: I saw Superman Returns last night and, as much as I expected it to be a total atrocity, I have to admit that I truly dug it. I’ll save the full-on coverage for an actual review, but this was a film I had low, low expectations of and I left that theater smilin’.
Third: Pitchfork Media has compiled a list of 100 Awesome Music Videos, and for once I’ll agree with them. Sure they left out stuff like Sabatoge, but there’s enough goodness in that list to last you a long while. I got a kick out of the fact that we’ve run a lot of those clips at one time or another. If you want a list of the stuff that I personally think is pretty awesome, why not check our 2005 Music Video Roundup?
Lastly: Get your Earth Science love on with the endlessly fascinating Earth Science Picture of the Day site, which showcases (duh) Earth Science images and provides some handy explanations.
I’ve got maybe two more posts in me, and then it’s see ya on Monday.
