Carey wrote up a review of Peter S. Beagle's new short stories collection, Sleight of Hand, at Drunken Zombie. If you don't know, that's Carey's hubby's podcast, you should check it out after you listen to this week's Geektress podcast (where I tear everyone who ever thought about Wonder Woman a new hole.)
Registration for Detroit Fanfare is live. They announced their first media guest this week, none other than Adam Baldwin. (I'm still mad at him for calling Gail Simone a bigot, but maybe she'll show up to kick him in the shins and everything will even out?)
Someone took a cue from Jimmy Kimmel's late show gag "Unnecessary Censorship" and bleeped The Count. At first you're like "I see where this is going, cute," and then it reaches a whole 'nother level of ridiculous.
The indie rock (but more like roll) band Local Natives played some songs behind the Tiny Desk for NPR. They're pretty okay, my favorite song is Sun Hands (I think I used it on a podcast once.) For whatever reason, Local Natives remind me of what Rusted Root would've been like if they had sucked less. Also, Local Natives are good live, even when you're having beer spilled on you by hipsters.
If you're in or around Columbus tonight, maybe check out a Wonderland event called Wonderland Float. It's inspired by the floating of paper lanterns during Chinese New Year. There will be drinks, and a $5 suggested donation to support the Wonderland project. (If someone goes, write "Edward Nigma: Detective For Hire" on one of the balloons and snap your fingers for luck.) (And because it's happenin' man.)
If you've never been to Letters of Note, they're a pretty cool site, but this post full of Muppety goodness is exceptionally fantastic. Wait till you get to the bottom and find out why children should always fear Dracula.
Lastly, don't forget our Essay Contest ends next week! We'll be picking the winners at C2E2, so don't miss out on a chance to win some original art or a cool gew-gaw from Neatorama! Also, check out our Race for the Cure team. Consider joining up or donating. Exciting announcements regarding the team will be forthcoming next month, so keep checking our charity page for updates.
