Things We Saw Today

 

Except now we’re all going to think about the first few minutes of Up, and then we’re all going to cry. By James Hance, who makes tons of these amazingly sweet geeky prints. (via Blastr)

You guys, I could not be more excited about this. We Love Fine, maker of fine geek t-shirts, is running a contest to find the best t-shirt design with this theme: Jem and the Holograms. The prize is $2,500 and will be judged by none other than the voice of Jem/Jerrica herself, Samantha Newark! Be still my beating ’80s heart!

  • Yesterday, we told you about how the MPAA rating system gave the documentary Bully too strong a rating for the people who need to see it the most. And then, today, they still stood by the rating, claiming the language was too harsh to change from an R to PG-13. Think Progress has some ideas on how to fix the MPAA so this doesn’t happen again.
  • The Glass Hammer has an excellent tribute to reporter Marie Colvin, who has been reporting from the warzone for most of her career and was killed in action on Wednesday.

    Chainsawsuit by Kris Straub has this to say about how women are sometimes treated by media types, specifically those who appear in science magazines:

  • Indiana Congressman Bob Morris is apologizing for calling the Girl Scouts “a radicalized organization” that “promoted homosexuality,” because … we don’t know how he came to that conclusion, actually. But he’s not exactly taking it back. Fine. He doesn’t deserve cookies anyway. (via The Jane Dough)
  • Australia has its own “teens in a dystopian future” series of books which has also been turned into a movie. But io9 doesn’t seem to consider it a threat to The Hunger Games at all. Read their review of Tomorrow, When the War Began, then get it on VOD. If you still feel the need.
