+ First, let's start with the cheerfully disturbing: Sci-Fi Wire's 20 Great Costumes To Dress Up Your Pet. These are great, especially the pug one which looks both horribly wrong and yet totally right.
+ The Edgar Allan Poe Museum in Richmond, VA is planning a recreation of Poe's funeral for fans and visitors. According to the AP article, "Poe's cousin Neilson Poe, never announced his death publicly, and 'fewer than ten' people attended the 'hasty funeral.' A train and derailed and crashed into a stonecutter's yard, shattering Poe's tombstone before it could be installed at his grave. Poe's enemy, Rufus Griswold, wrote him a 'libellous obituary' that damaged his reputation for decades." Poe should have known never to let a Griswold do his obituary -- did he never see the "Vacation" movies? Anyway, now Poe's getting a 200 year old do-over, complete with state-of-the-art replica body.
+ "Doctor Who" has gotten a new logo, just in time for the new season to start in 2010. Check out the video unveiling below and let me know your thoughts on the new look. Personally, I kind of like it, especially the way the TARDIS is represented:
+ USA Today's Pop Candy has an interview with Felicia Day, who is getting more popular by the second. Good for her!
+ And Popular Mechanics has a nifty Q&A with Adam and Jamie from "Mythbusters."
+ And finally, here's an awesome new site called Regretsy that chronicles the worst in handmade arts and crafts. You have to admit, though, the pink leopard goat coat is pretty awesome.
