John Scalzi has a discussion in his blog today of movies that made you laugh uncontrollably. Reading the comments is bringing back great memories.

Speaking of John Scalzi, he will be in San Francisco on Friday night with Mary Robinette Kowal. I missed their panel at Worldcon, but heard it was funny. Anyone want to join me for their reading?

EW has a picture of Greek's new character.

Scariest health article of the week: Hormone replacement therapy is shown to shrink the brains of older women. Sources: CNN and BBC

SciFi Wire has an interview with Andrew Stanton about John Carter of Mars.

SciFi Wire also has a clip of the new show Warehouse 13 (coming in July).

Microsoft released a beta version of Windows 7 last week, and there are lots of articles now:
- Betta fish on the desktop of the beta release was deliberate (and cute)
- Ars Technica has an in-depth tour of the features
- Q&A about Microsoft plans for Windows 7
- Photogallery at ZDNet.

One more note from the CES - PC Magazine lists their favorite gadgets.

The Philip K. Dick Award nominees (for best original paperback release) have been announced. I haven't read any of them, but one was already on my TBR list.
