  • Here’s a 1982 interview with John Sladek by David Langford. “To my mind, the best SF addresses itself to problems of the here and now, or even to problems which have never been solved and never will be solved — I’m thinking of Philip K. Dick’s work here, dealing with questions of reality…”

  1. Bah. A top ten list of dragons without Tiamat

    can not be taken seriously. Just in the D&D cartoon alone Tiamat was the glue that held the series together!

  2. Just so you know, the Two Doctors bit from Children in Need is on YouTube:

  3. Hello there,

    I am sorry to go totally OT here, but i was reading the wikipedia article on the tv show The Big Bang Theory when I came across the following line: “She is very aware of her neighbors’ nerd status but remains friends with them anyway, revealing her kindly nature.”

    Don’t believe me, look for yourself http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Big_Bang_Theory_(TV_series, it is about half way in of the Penny part of the article.

    What kind of a moron wrote that. It is like nerds are lepers or something. I do not live in the States, and I identify freely as a nerd, so is there something here that I am missing, or is this really insulting and small minded.

    Thank you again, and sorry to go OT.

  4. Thanks for finding and sharing the Dalek cupcake army. That was delightful…I didn’t know there was such a thing as black food coloring though.
