Waterstones, the famous book sellers, is soon going to be famous (infamous?)for not being able to edit quickly enough. An article for the new Elder Scrolls book by Greg Keyes, The Elder Scrolls: Infernal City, the page editor put up this interesting tidbit:
"A novel that takes place forty-five years after the Oblivion Crisis, which is the story of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion game and the expansion pack Shivering Isles. It partly bridges the gap for the next game, which is set 200 years after the Oblivion crisis."
They got to it, but not soon enough that it wasn't noticed and AJ Glasser of kotaku.com is to thank for quick reporting.
Personally (might get flamed for this one) if Hip-Hop fell off the planet tomorrow, I'd be cool with that, it's just not my thing. However, I can and do appreciate that most of the artists involved are genuinely talented (or I'd be making my dole that way too).
Hip-Hop was never, and still isn't taken seriously..enter making money. Ahha, now you're a legitimate business / art / whatever and litigation happy America jumps in.
This film looks promising, really does, give the preview a whirl and sound off :)

What promises to be a superb documentary on musical sampling, copyright law and their effects on creativity will see its official launch in January 2010. No harm in taking an early preview though.
Copyright Criminals: This Is a Sampling Sport is an upcoming documentary which examines the creative and commercial aspects of musical sampling, and I am personally really looking forward to this one.
A major component of the documentary is the effect copyright law has on creativity and, of course, how good old-fashioned greed and money come into play. If you happen to like hip-hop too, thats a real bonus, but not a necessity by any means.
The documentary will ask a critical question:
Is it possible to own a sound?
Copyright Criminals will have a general release in January 2010, but an early free preview is available if you’re near The Rotunda (40th and Walnut) in Philadelphia this upcoming Tuesday October 20th at 19:00.

It's very mod, we like it...now David Tenant simply needs to get together with Tom Baker and have their DNA combined by some whacked out in the head scientist type to make the end-all-be-all Doctor and the world can keep right on wobbling.
Galactic Heroes, I love'em, they're cool. They're tiny, they're tooney, and well, they're just a little looney....etc, etc. (Sorry Warner, et al.)
Of the Galactic Heroes, anything Fett or remotely Bounty Hunter related is smoking hot and one's headed for the desk and another for the "Closet of Wonders" where we hide all of our goodies that we one day will get graded and then sell for millions on eBay for huge cash to send the kid off to college in style.
That said, seeing this little number at Entertainment Earth got me hopping.
You get a little "Han in Carbonite", you can never have too many of those catching dust around your house, a "galactically deformed" Slave I, and...the man himself, Boba Fett - most notorious Bounty Hunter (despite what Cad Bane says) in the galaxy.
Of course, the problem with this little bit of plastic fun, like all of them, is we'll need two, one to keep hermetically sealed in a tomb of inert gas behind UV blocking bulletproof glass that has and will never be removed from the box....and another that will catch dust with the other Fett stuff scattered around my desk. Oh...the joys of collecting toys :)
We should all boycott the news channels. All of them, even the local broadcasts. Ignorance is running rampant making the world an unsafe place for rational people.
Today, I typed into my preferred search engine, "How to commit the perfect murder". According to some theorists, if people around me suddenly start dropping dead under mysterious circumstances, I'm screwed.
The wife and I are still laughing about the moronic state of affairs we find ourselves in. That, and her idea that I'm typing this out so I can off her conveniently in the near future and have an alibi or something to confuse the prosecution.
Enjoy the entirely frivolous and silly Sunday rant :)
Oh, and don't forget to make certain you have "Top Ten Tips for Committing the Perfect Murder" in your browser history!
