  1. You Can Sit In President Snow’s Chair At the Fan Expo Canada Hunger Games Booth

    Ummmm.

    I would point out that this set piece appears to contribute to the overall obliviousness of The Hunger Games marketing team, who consistently offer us opportunities to feel like Capitol residents without actually taking into account that the Capitol is terrible. But also, I am a sucker for a fancy seat of power, and there are already pictures in existence of me confidently sitting in the Iron Throne like I own it. So... people in glass chairs, I guess.

  2. Buckle Up! Netflix to Make New Magic School Bus Series

    I'm so glad I didn't stay home today!

    Children of the '90s, rejoice! According to the New York Times (and my research), Netflix is bringing The Magic School Bus back for more perpetual field trips starting with 26 half-hour episodes slated to stream in 2016. So it's not Star Trek, but it's not too far off either, huh, nerds?

  5. Here’s Our First Look at the New U.S. Cover for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

    This is just like magic!

    Scholastic announced that they'd be redoing the covers of their paperback editions of Harry Potter in February, and they've been slowly rolling out the new illustrations from comics artist Kazu Kibuishi. This week, they revealed the cover for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, prominently featuring the Burrow! You can check out Kibuishi's cover for Sorcerer's Stone here, and if you still love the Mary GrandPré covers, fear not. They'll still be gracing the hardcover editions.

  6. State of the Union Address Left out the Bit Where We’re Getting New Harry Potter Cover Art

    There's An Apparate For That

    Now, don't get your howler stationary out just yet. Kazu Kibuishi's lovely illustrations aren't going to be replacing Mary GrandPré's iconic dust jackets on the US hardcover editions of the Harry Potter books. They're going on the 15th anniversary paperbacks, which will begin their release with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone this fall. Which I note is still going to be called "Sorcerer" and not "Philosopher" because sigh. Said Kibuishi of the opportunity to illustrate Harry Potter:

  8. Good Message For the Kids: Teach Girls to Survive Zits, Teach Boys to Survive Frostbite

    Natural Disasters

    So, we're not going to get too outraged over this because it's ridiculous. But let this be a guide to what not to buy the grade-schooler in your life. Ryan North at What Are the Haps came across these books in a bookstore -- in the year 2012 -- and provided a list of the chapters contained within both the "Girls Only" edition as well as the "Boys Only" one. If you're thinking that both books provide children of both genders useful survival skills in the face of actual emergencies ... you are about half correct. Unless you consider "becoming rich" an emergency. (Spoiler: "How to Survive Becoming Rich" is in the girls' book. Good to know the author has faith that girls can become rich, but only in a way that causes them severe psychological problems.)

  9. Marvel Comics Listed As A SOPA Supporter

    BAD IDEAS FROM SMART PEOPLE

    The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), or Protect-IP Act as it's called in the House of Representatives, has been the talk of the internet-town (and regular towns) for  months. Once everyone realized the implications this particular bill, they got extremely nervous and concerned phone calls and letters started pouring into Washington. The matter is still waiting to be settled when Congress returns from their winter recess but a list has surfaced showing particular companies who are in support of the controversial bill. And one of them is Marvel Entertainment.
