News of the Day

+ Ain't It Cool News reports that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows may be released as two separate movies in order to better cover the vast amount of action and story involved in the book. As someone who complained bitterly about the truncated storyline of Order of the Phoenix, color me thrilled to bits.

+ You're playing Rock Band in your living room. The cat's standing on a chair with a beer in one paw, waving a lighter in the other, and you think to yourself, "You know what this moment needs? Smoke and lights." The Rock Band Stage Kit solves that problem by offering, well, smoke and lights to enhance your stage presence and general rock awesomeness. Now all you need are roadies, groupies and an unsavory manager to steal all your profit.

+ If you're a sucker for nature, check out this video of some amazing sea creatures. I'm especially fond of the two-faced squid who shows one side of himself to the ladies and another to the males...literally. Very "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea"-y.

Man, Rockband is such a complicated set up as it is that I don't think I'd have the patience for the smoke and lights. BUT I LOVE THAT FRIGGEN' GAME. I just played it for the first time this weekend and HOORAY.

Also, if they break up HP 7 into two movies, I'm putting in a special request to go back and do the same thing to the rest of them. With the same actors. Even though they're old. We can pretend.
