Flotsam and Jetsam

All sorts of shiny things to share with you all today!

First off, would you like me to draw a unique piece of formalwear for you in honor of the 2011 Academy Awards? I'm extending the drawing through tomorrow, so if you haven't left your comment yet, go ahead and so NOW!

Secondly... the last three polls are going up now! So vote vote vote for BEST ACTOR, BEST ACTRESS and... *drumroll please* BEST PICTURE.

Next... I'd like to mention a little TV show called Firefly. Ever heard of it? Best show ever to be prematurely canceled. Possibly best TV show ever. Anyhow, there are some waves going out over the internet to seriously get this back on the air (or the internet, at least). Lead Actor Nathan Fillion (you may know him from the show "Castle") mentioned that if he won the Calafornia lottery and got $300 million the first thing he'd do is buy up the rights and bring back the show himself. Of course, the Firefly fans (Browncoats!) took this pretty seriously and are starting up what is turning into an extrodinary effort to bring back the show... check it out and maybe help make TV history! (Also, join the 45,000 and growing crowd over on facebook!)

Then -- X-Men Fans --- interesting interview today from James McAvoy! Check it out here.

I am heading out for some warm Spring Break Vacation Weather this weekend! I'll still post all sorts of goodies (and don't forget -- tons of Oscar coverage on Sunday!), but you may find a few pictures of beautiful ocean views tossed in. That's okay. You can be jealous.

Finally, the name of this post is a partial homage to Joss Whedon's run on the Astonishing X-Men, which I consider some of the finest writing in the entire X-Men canon (Not that I've read everything, but... yeah). So if you're interested in checking out the comic 'verse, I suggest picking up "Astonishing X-Men Volume 2" and checking it out.
