Maybe y'all knew, but I just found out...

Billy's doing a lead voice for the Dominator X animation (just FYI, his voice is not in the trailer that I could hear). And MGM is going to distribute Billy's Flying Scotsman film in the US.

Heros - new cast member : Christopher Eccleston (according to buddytv.)

I'm rooting for New Line to screw up The Hobbit negotiations and the rights to revert to Saul Zaentz. That's because Zaentz's Fantasy Records is based in Berkeley, a mile down the street from me and across from a favorite lunch place... When I worked in that area, I'd see lots of musicians, but didn't recognize them because I'm pathetic at pop culture. *hopes for Pete and Fran and Philippa sightings*

(ETA: cellphones are supposed to be exempt from auto-dialers, which most of the telemarketers use. Still, might as well opt out whenever possible!) via almaviva: [In about a week], all (american) cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and you will start to receive sales calls for which you'll be charged. WTF. Anyway, the FCC's do not call registry number is 888-382-1222 or you can register at www.donotcall.gov.

When the Firefly fans convention was cancelled underneath them, they had an unconvention anyway. Many of the actors, including Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk, showed up for autographs and pictures, and apparently there was a party held in a secret location. That's a Big Damn Hero Fandom! (Fan report from our own maitheas here; others here and here, pictures here and a really good article here)

And nawwwww, I'm in dorrie6's love meme (now closed to comments cos of the LJ limits). I assumed I wasn't there and it's nice to be wrong.

Oi. This is what happens when I don't automatically check snopes.com. The e-mail I had for the cell phone thing was from the Director of our office and shame on me for not checking simply because he has a ph'd. No, really, I feel bad because another women in our office had forwarded me something (that, to be honest, did not sound nearly as credible as this) and I sent her to snopes and asked that she not send me forwards anymore. I don't suppose I'll be doing that to him, though. Bleah. Anyway, here is from snopes. Good information.

So, not urgent but then not a bad idea to register either. Simply because telemarketers don't normally use cell phone numbers doesn't mean they wouldn't or won't if it's the number they have, especially for people like me who no longer have a land line. ...of course this could be my cynicism talking.

oops!

Still, I'm getting calls from someone who keeps leaving me no context, no company number, etc. etc. and I'm pretty sure it's a scam. So any little thing that avoids this is good.
