Monday Odds & Ends (Afternoon Edition): Potter, Whedon, spaceships, artists and dorks

+ If you can't wait to see the new footage from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" promised with tomorrow's DVD release of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," well, then here it is a day early:

+ Want to hear what Joss Whedon has to say about why he thinks "Dollhouse" was cancelled? Here's a pretty expansive interview with the man himself.

+ Virgin Galactic unveiled its commercial spaceship this morning. It looks like a really big plane. Couldn't he have made it flashier, like maybe added a faux warp drive? C'mon, Branson, I expect a little more Buck Rogers for my dollar!

+ Check out these gorgeous portraits of sci-fi and other authors created by comic book artists. They're really lovely.

+ So apparently, the decade is ending. I sort of had forgotten that until I started noticing all these "Best of the Decade" lists cropping up. Seems like kind of an important thing to know.... Oh well! Time is relative. And with that, here's a list of the decade's most lovable TV dorks.

The runner up list for the best dorks is better than the real list!! Fred Burkle and Howard Wollowitz are totally bitchin' as Howard would no doubt say himself.

Not sure if you've gotten this comment, but the HP video has been yanked :(

Bought the HBP DVD/Two Pack today (yes I am that much of a Harry-geek!)

Haven't seen it yet. Will pop it into the old player when I get the chance. And yes, I can confirm that the video is not working.
