Morning Coffee (1/15/11)

Morning Coffee

Happy Saturday! I was up ridiculously late reading last night, but the cat doesn't seem to care, so I am up. Ah well.

RNC? TCA? Whatever. Your really important news of the day: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy) is coming back to TV (if her show gets picked up, etc.).

Okay, RNC. Your new chair: Reince Priebus.

This Slate article about why you shouldn't put two spaces after a period has become ridiculously popular, especially given how much real news there's been this week. But it's good! I at some point stopped using two spaces, but it wasn't really a conscious decision. Hm. I wonder how that happened?

Just How Crazy, Really, Are The Golden Globes Musical/Comedy Picks?

Hey look! A new dinosaur! Call Brannon Braga.

This headline did not at all mean what I thought it meant: Touring Camelot, Without Having to Leave Home. But it's still interesting, because it's about how the Kennedy library has been digitizing their archives and making them searchable. Actually, a few months ago I sat next to the guy in charge of this project at a search-related conference, and my boss was all "Yeah, of COURSE you wind up next to the Kennedy Library guy." But anyway, he was really nice, and it's a fascinating project.

Speaking of the Kennedys, DirecTV might air that miniseries that the History Channel turned down. I don't have DirecTV, but if it shows SOMEWHERE, there's a better chance of it making it to DVD, I guess. Or I could DVR it at my parents' house. They'd probably never even notice.

The BBC is making a new Great Expectations.
