Quick Hits

It’s ironic that I’d get back to the blog right after my job demands ramp up to 60 hours a week for the foreseeable future. If I couldn’t find time to post before, what will I do now?!? The answer? A sampling of quick hits!

  • Another Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie appears to be in the pipeline, only the project will not involve Joss Whedon, the creative force behind the successful television series. Instead, the film will be brought to us by Kuzui Enterprises – the folks who did the original Buffy movie. As a fan of the TV series who thought the movie was terrible (so much so that I’ve only gotten around to the series in the last year), I can’t see much good coming out of this…
  • WTMD out of Towson, Maryland is doing a countdown of the 897 greatest musical artists of all time… and when they say “all time,” well… it leads to some interesting choices… for instance: ranking Widespread Panic (275) ahead of Beethoven (304) and Bach (289). Yes, the whole thing is a bit silly, but there are lots of silly bits to be found (#814 even making the list!) [h/t: Jesse Walker]
  • Meet Desmond Hatchett. If Desmond has 99 problems then his babymamas and children are… oh, about a third of ’em. You see, during a recent child support hearing, it came out that the 29 year old Mr. Hatchett has what is believed to be a U.S. record of 21 children by 11 different women. For his part, Desmond says that he’s all done and he won’t have any more kids. Magnificent!
  • If only Desmond weren’t judgment proof (fancy lawyerspeak for “broke”), he might have reason to secure the services of Frank Ahearn, who makes a living by helping people disappear. It’s a little cloak and dagger, but that’s what makes it a cool line of work. [h/t : Tyler Cowen]
