random links for lunch

NEWS FLASH: 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' Bumped to Summer 2009 (at EW, link snurched from dianeofnka). Bummer news, as the movie looks good. And that comment thread is full of seriously, SERIOUSLY, pissed-off HP fans - wow.

Can You Guess Where My Accent Is From? (snurched from idiosyncreant). Excellent site, as I love accents. However, I did pretty bad on this quiz - couldn't even get half.

Jeff Vandermeer on political (speculative) fiction (at Huffington Post, snurched from jaylake). Ooooo, nifty. The concept of political SpecFic has been in my mind a lot, as I occasionally commit some and would like to do more.

Coming Soon from China: Dystopic Futures, the Next Steve Jobs, and a World Full of Drumming Androids (from io9). A very interesting essay about possible futures for China. Good stuff, both for futurism and for writing.

'For Better or for Worse' creator Lynn Johnston not retiring after all (via The Comics Curmudgeon). One wonders how much the situation will affect FBOBW. FBOFW could get real mean and bitter, it could.

BONUS FUNNY:

Johnson & Johnson Introduces 'Nothing But Tears' Shampoo To Toughen Up Newborns. It's about danged time! Those babies of today are just a bunch of, well, babies!
