Saturday!

* The first of the last three Pushing Daisies is on tonight. Bryan Fuller’s not satisfied, and not done with the story yet.

* Alien prequel on the way.

* More on the sci-fi future that failed from CNN.

* Related: Star Trek as religion.

* Scenes from trailers that aren’t in the finished film. I suspect I would have liked Terminator Salvation a lot more if the “This isn’t the future my mother warned me about” scenes had been retained.

* Wondermark has a good riff take on Terminator-style action franchises: 1, 2, 3.

* Tales of the New Frontier: a web comic set in a mythical alt-history Kennedy administration.

* ‘Jesus Killed Mohammed’: Christian dominionism and the U.S. military.

* Brace yourselves for Toy Story 3.

* Weekend games: Heavy Weapons, Panic Breakout, Fail-Safe, and Redstar Fall Pro.

* And this just in: Delaware still sucks.

Warning Signs of the Future Revisited

leave a comment »

The blog icon for this week is of course shamelessly stolen from the Warning Signs of the Future Flickr group, one of my absolute favorite things on the Internet. That’s why I’m so glad I ran across the Doktor Sleepless wiki this afternoon, which has a similar aesthetic from the minds of Warren Ellis and Ivan Rodriguez. (Information on the series here. Originally via grinding.be.)

In the end I found it necessary to troll the site for every Warning Sign image I could find, which I now happily share with you. So cool.

Most of these originate in a series of variant “warning sign” covers done for issues of the series, which I will now absolutely have to check out, if only because of stuff like this.
