Here's hoping she doesn't get herself killed.

I also used to subscribe to the KeenToons animated cartoons "podcast", but after it downloaded a few episodes, I realized I didn't like any of them and quickly unsubscribed.
- Blank Label Comics: by far the most entertaining podcast I listen to. Dave and Kris have a fantastic rapport and their humor bounces between them effortlessly making for an excellent waste of an hour
- Digital Strips: the original webcomics podcast, accept no substitutes. Daku and Zampzon (and Phil Kahn) are great hosts and they have access to interview some very influential members of the webcomics landscape. Always an entertaining listen
- KeenCast: to be perfectly honest, I only listen to the KeenSpot podcast to round out my webcomics collective podcast library. It's not nearly as entertaining as the others, and it's fairly incestual in that they only interview fellow KS-ers. I'm holding out for the Chris Crosby interview
- Talk About Comics: this podcast seems to me to simply be Joey Manley interviewing webcartoonists who are "innovating" in his mind. WARNING: only listen to this podcast if you 1) can stand to listen to Joey Manley, and 2) are really interested in keeping up with the whole webcomics universe
- Meanwhile...: even though T Campbell is involved in this podcast, you have to remind yourself that this isn't a webcomics podcast, perse. It's a podcast about comics, including the books. You know, not on the web. WARNING: only listen to this podcast if you 1) can stand to listen to T Campbell (I happen to like him, personally), and 2) are really interested in keeping up with the whole webcomics universe
Yes, I'm addicted to podcasts. Lord help me, I don't even listen to music anymore.
- IGN Games/Entertainment: surprisingly entertaining! I listen to both the games podcast and the movies and music one. The people doing them are nuts, and it's fun to listen to and keep up to date with everyone's opinions on the latest trash some corporations pass for "entertainment" these days
- Revolution Report: I'm a Nintendo fanboy. Gotta keep up with what Nintendo is doing!
- Real Time with Bill Maher: I miss having this man on network television (I don't have cable), so it's fantastic to see that HBO decided to post his shows as (video-less) podcasts. That way, I continue to get my angry liberal fix
- Ask a Ninja: dear LORD this stuff is hilarious!
- NPR: Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me: not nearly as hilarious as Ask a Ninja, but still highly entertaining
- TalkCrunch: Mike Arrington of TechCrunch talks Web2.0, software, business, innovation, and more. Fascinating discussions with major Web2.0 players and soon-to-be spotlighters
There are a couple of formatting issues to sort out and I have to write the book-jacket description, but the manuscript is now officially out of my hands.Hopefully, things don't blow up on T regarding this project. And we all know how these things can get out of hand.
"Hopefully if we can make it work and everybody's excited and watches it we will keep on going," said McCallum. The series will be set between episodes three and four of the film saga. It would cover the 20 years in the life of Luke Skywalker growing up that remains a mystery to most film-goers. McCallum said there would be "a whole bunch of new characters" and the series would be "much more dramatic and darker".So, basically, we've got a Star Wars show with no jedi. Yeah. I'm picturing the Star Wars version of "Smallville", which I watched until about halfway through the second season, when I suddenly realized it was pure WB teen angst drivel, but with kryptonite! This will be pure WB teen angst drivel, but with references to Tatooine!

Quick, easy-to-use interface
Excellent "BlogThis" Firefox extension for quick posting

Can't create pages outside the blog date heirarchy
Have to edit templates (CSS/HTML) to expand public interface
Re-publishing of full blog will usually result in failure/error

Categories (this accounts for about 82% of the reason I'm playing with the tool)
Option to ping Technorati and Google on posting
Includes tracking software
Easy-to-implement customizable sidebar widgets
Ability to create "non-blog" pages
Very quick and easy publishing of posts
Seems to run really slow (both admin and public site)
Cannot edit template
Cannot add tracking software code to template
Included tracking software is not very robust
No really good Firefox extension for quick posting (Performancing is "okay", but not nearly as great as "BlogThis" for Blogger)
Apparently, this new game - which has supposedly been in development for a few months - will carry forward much of the gameplay of the original title, but JeuxPo stated at least one noticeable difference: the main character Jade will have the ability to travel to other planets.So, it sounds as though you get to start this game with your father's spaceship from the first game. Which, by all accounts, would indeed rock greatly.
I would team up with another artist, but I seem to have created characters that NO ONE can draw.Now, back to Gossamer Commons.
But on the way to being the smooth, unruffled, lady-killer 007 fans have grown accustomed to, Craig as the first blond Bond, will clearly show a more human side. "The great thing about it is that he makes mistakes and screws up. Bond finds violence hard to take, he won't admit to that. He has to do two killings, one is very messy. He falls in love with a girl, genuinely falls in love," said Campbell.I'm not making this up. It makes me want to scream profanities. This is tantamount to making Mario star in a dance dance revolution-style game. Oh, wait. Well, it's still a fairly oddball way to play the master of smooth spy operators.
The first is again about the role of the "healer" and why I think it is superfluous to the point that I wouldn't miss it if completely removed and replaced with something different.At this point in the article (Abalieno's second paragraph, to be precise), the people I know who play the MMOs I see would be shaking their fists in fury at this unknown man's utter insolence. The nerve! they would be saying. Healers are VITAL to the MMO gaming landscape! However, read on, and you see that his rationale for this is actually quite lucid:
The truth, to go back at the main topic, is that the healer classes don't exist because they are indispensable and valuable in the situations we are trying to reproduce. The healer classes don't exist because it was required to make a fight work. They exists because till today we played the meta-game of "buttons and colored bars": a parody of combat.I hate to summarize such a thoughtful and articulate article, but what Abalieno is basically saying is that our current MMO environments have become stale and emotionless, resorting to nothing more a graphical interface for mere mathematical formulas and calculations. In this sort of world, we're constantly watching the "green bar", so to speak, and our first instinct when the bar goes down is HEY! I need someone to help me make this bar go back UP! Thus, the healer is born.
