Stirring Dull Roots with Spring Rain

Hello everyone! Happy Passover and Happy Easter weekend to those of you who celebrate, and Happy Friday to everybody!

* My most recent StarShipSofa "Looking Back on Genre History" segment, which discusses the character of Andrew Latter by Harold Begbie, is now available in the latest episode of the podcast. You can download it or listen to it here. If you listen, I hope you enjoy. (A full list of my past podcast segments, with links, is available here.)

* Information about the upcoming book The Philosophy of Joss Whedon is now available, and it's up for preorder at Amazon. This collection includes my essay “‘Just Get Us a Little Further’: Liberty and the Frontier in Firefly and Serenity.”

* It looks like an official DVD set of Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future is going to happen! I'm ridiculously excited. I have been a faithful fan for more than twenty years. (You can hear/download my StarShipSofa segment on this controversial and award-winning series here at StarShipSofa or here on the Captain Power fansite.) Thanks for the early scoop on this some time ago, sneezythesquid!

* Librivox has two new unabridged readings of special interest, the dystopian Philip Dru: Administrator, A Story of Tomorrow, 1920-1935 by Edward M. House (1912) and the apocalyptic Lord of the World by Robert Hugh Benson (1908).

* In happy news, happy early birthday to izhilzha! May you have a wonderful day and a fantastic year to come.

* In sad news, R.I.P. Sarah Jane, Elisabeth Sladen (1946-2011). Tragic news indeed.

And last, memeage:

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Neutral. Not Northern, Southern, or Western, just American. Your national American identity is more important to you than your local identity, because you don't really have a local identity to begin with.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?






“April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain.”
- T.S. Eliot
