Studio 60 Season 1 Will Finish!!

Following the decision to pull Studio 60 from it's primetime line-up, NBC have now announced the remainder of Season 1 will air on Thursdays at 10pm EST, starting on 24th May.

This is fantastic news, although it still remains unlikely that the show will get a second season.

I guess the campaigning will begin in earnest in the coming months to force NBC to realise that cancelling the best written show on TV in favour of more reality crap is not in the best interests of everyone.

10 Steps to Fascism

Great article detailing the 10 steps that all governments perform in order to curb freedoms and remove the democratic process from their countries. Interestingly, the United States seems to have taken all 10 to heart.

Full article

Step 1: Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy
Step 2: Create a gulag
Step 3: Develop a thug caste
Step 4: Set up an internal surveillance system
Step 5: Harass citizens' groups
Step 6: Engage in arbitrary detention and release
Step 7: Target key individuals
Step 8: Control the press
Step 9: Dissent equals treason
Step 10: Suspend the rule of law

So much for the land of the free.

Power of Nightmares on Google Video

For those of you who didn't get to see the excellent Power of Nightmares on BBC a couple of years ago, it is now available on Google Video.

Episode 1: Baby It's Cold Outside
Episode 2: The Phantom Victory
Episode 3: The Shadows in the Cave

I do recommend it as a well researched history on the current troubles.

Incredibly long, but superb video of a guy trying to get through a fan created Mario ROM. I have never seen such a hard game.

"WTF - Who designed this?!"

A poll by SFX magazine has seen Serenity take poll position as the favoured SciFi movie among geeks. While we all know that Serenity is far better than Star Wars, it's still a shock that so many other people are in the know!
