I'll soon be off to ConCarolinas. (My schedule is here.) Have a great weekend!
A few news items:
* This casting news regarding The Hunger Games and this casting news regarding The Hobbit (and you can tell from the details that Sir Ian provides it can only mean one particular role) make me very happy indeed.
* Librivox.org now has an unabridged reading of the 1920 science fiction/fantasy classic A Voyage to Arcturus by David Lindsay available.
* A new album by The Cars? Child of the '80s that I am, I love The Cars. I want to listen to and enjoy this. But my favorite voice in the band was Benjamin Orr, and he's no longer with us. I find myself in a quandary. What to do? (The obvious answer, of course, is to leave it for now and just revel in the glory of the new Kate Bush album instead.)
I'll leave you with a music video retrospective of the Harry Potter films, for those of you who are feeling a bit nostalgic:
