News of the Day

+ There's pictures ahoy for the new Star Trek movie including a shot of the spiffy new Enterprise.

+ Remember when there was talk of a Caprica-based spin-off of Battlestar Galactica? Well, thanks to the writer's strike and the fact that producers are dusting off as many old scripts as they can find, we may get to see the two-hour pilot.

+ Former Nerd Man of the Month Stephen Colbert received another honor recently when the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC hung his portrait in their esteemed halls right alongside presidents and judges and congressmen and...the restrooms. Which, actually, is prime real estate when you think about it. Plus, it's a great opportunity for him to tell people he's "flush with pride."

+ Speaking of great art, did you know that the Library of Congress has a Flickr page? Indeed they do, and it's filled with gorgeous images from the 1910s, 1930s and 1940s, like the one below.

+ Word is that the makers of Scrabble are trying to get Facebook to discontinue their Scrabulous application. Facebook users are up in arms about this, especially since it's the single greatest application available on the site. To Mattel and Hasbro, I say, you may take our lives (well, you know, hopefully not), but you'll never take...OUR SCRABULOUS!!
