My buddy Zach Oat did a pretty great list of the best and worst virtual realities over on Television Without Pity. Go check it out! My wife and parents are huge Disney freaks, but I’m a little burnt out on the place. But, if they do ever make The Museum of the Weird, I’ll gladly go again. Also, I love reading about never-produced Disney theme parks and abandoned ones. (via LATimes)
Tom Spurgeon digs some Wildstorm books. It’s the usual stuff most people like. Oh man, this is awesome. Check out the Twin Peaks Laura Palmer Bearbrick. The real question is whether it comes wrapped in plastic or not. (via Super Punch)
Kevin Smith gives some advice on turning passion into a career. While I’m getting a little tired of his self effacement (we get it, for some reason even though you know you don’t suck you feel the need to address the fact that others might think you do), it’s good advice. On a recent episode of Diggnation, Alex Albrecht mentioned that people in my generation have been doing this to a greater degree than previous ones (essentially, taking what you love and turning that into your job instead of taking a job that may or not be related). It’s pretty interesting, especially when you’re living it. I guess homey wasn’t done dispensing the advice.
I haven’t had a chance to read all of Tom Spurgeon’s interview with Joe Casey, but I did read the excellent paragraphs my buddy Sean Collins extracted over on Robot 6. My recommendation for his theme song if he’s looking for one is Jay-Z’s “On To The Next One.” Video NSFW for explicit vocals, but damn that’s a good track! Ooh, or maybe “Off That.” I guess it depends on which part of the quote you/he likes better.
This is where my people (mom and grandma) come from. Southern New York’s got nothing on Ohio when it comes to winter weather. (via IHC)
