Geek on!

Every single item in this post is for geeks. If you don't appreciate such material... Too bad! ;-)

+ Northwest Junior High School, represent! Northwest Junior High eighth-grader Drew Coffin competed Wednesday morning as one of 10 finalists in the 18th annual National Geographic Bee in Washington, D.C.

+ Pixar's John Lasseter, now Chief Creative Officer of parent company Disney, really seems to love Disney and its legacy (via kottke). That's got to be a good thing, right?

+
Girlfriend 6.0 vs. Wife 1.0 is a little funny ;-)

+ The Top 25 X-Men. Lowest appearance by an original is Iceman at #16. followed by (Arch)Angel at 11. 10. Colossus 9. Beast  8. Storm. Check.

All the deaths and rebirths of Jean Grey (6), along with Ultimate Power, make her less interesting to me.

5. Rogue. Said this before: She just doesn't do much for me.

4. Wolverine. Yep. You could make a pretty good argument for putting him #1, depending on your criteria.

3. Kitty Pryde. Yep. I have a Princess Leia-type crush on Kitty Pryde.

2. Professor X. Yep.

and, 1. Cyclops. I can see it with these criteria, but I don't find him all that interesting...

Learned in this article that Marvel has introduced something called Omega mutants (*cough*midi-chlorians*cough*). The subtitle of this article says it all: Do we really want "Omega-class" characters in the Marvel Universe? (cf also, Wikipedia).

Also discovered, in my travels, the Marvel Database Project.

+ The Lonely Island are the new video short darlings of SNL. The best one is Dopple Ganger. Laser Cats is plenty funny. Running a distant third is The Chroni(what?)cles of Narnia.

I do it for you, dear reader ;-)
