News of the Day -- Wednesday, July 2

+ Yesterday was just one of those days, you know? In case you had one of those days, too, let's all watch the Dr. Horrible teaser and make it better, shall we?

Teaser from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog on Vimeo.

+ Science-types are talking about the possibility of an invisibility cloak. You know what I would do if I had an invisibility cloak? I would spend a whole day just giving people the finger. Dogs and little children, too. I don't know why, it just seems like a reasonable thing to do.

+ Did you hear that Nelson Mandela was taken off the United States' terrorism watch list yesterday? Happy Birthday, Nelson! At first, we were going to get you a gift certificate to Bed, Bath and Beyond but this seemed so much more personal. On a related note, King George III rose from the dead yesterday, got in his time machine and took George Washington off The Naughty Colonial List. Sigh.

+ And did you know that yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the S.O.S. signal, marking the 100th anniversary of me of confusing it with scouring pads?

+ And finally, Galactica Sitrep reports that Jane "Everything I Write Turns to Magical Television Gold" Espenson will write the first of the three proposed Battlestar Galactica TV movies. Word is that Edward James Olmos will direct. And there was much rejoicing...

I have a proposal for July's Nerd Man of the Month - Steve Carell.

He's the poster boy for Nerd Man Done Good, in just about every movie he makes. In Get Smart, he even has good gadgets. :-)
