One Titanic Moment

"Just Add Water" (as mentioned earlier) had a "Titanic moment" when Dee-Dee stood up on the bow of the Princess Fairy and tried to get Tim O'Neill to hold her up, with a wonderful Barch moment coming right after. Today is the 54th birthday of the man who gave us that iconic moment (and the Terminator and Alien series). Happy Birthday to James Cameron, who is one year older than me. See, old people can too do cool stuff!

Wikipedia also informs us that today is the 78th anniversary of the creation of the very first color cartoon ever. The creator, Ub Iwerks, laid the groundwork for Daria and all the other good stuff we've enjoyed over the years. Thank you and bless you, man!

DJPotatoe has released his "first ALL DIGITAL painting of Daria" right here.

Lawndale Online is still down. Damn. Moar inna minnit.

LATER: Richard Lobinske has again updated the 2008 Visual FanWorks Listing (PPMB) (SFMB). Thank you!

  • A Monster in the Unmaking, by Kristen Bealer (COMPLETE!): Magnificent work. Should have been canon.
  • Promises, by Richard Lobinske (Part 2): "Proms are one of the high points of high school," said Helen, "and I don't want you regret missing the chance." "Yeah," said John, "I guess all that underage drinking and sex are hard to forget. Well, unless you drink too much, then you probably forget everything." (Love this series, I just love it.)
SFMB is getting spammed again. Oh, well.

You appear to have missed DJPotatoe's adept rendition of the two bedraggled senior-year protagonists of your "Winter in Hell" ... might want to go and check it out.
