Morning Coffee (2/8/11)

Morning Coffee

Good morning! Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday - I was having some technical difficulties and then the morning just got away from me.

Olbermann will announce his new gig today, but it's pretty much leaked that he's going to Current TV, which . . . I know that's the Al Gore thing, but is it also a real station that people actually get? I don't, but my cable is shockingly unfancy.

The Today show will be doing a whole royal wedding special. That's a relief.

It's Jules Verne's birthday, and make sure you look at Google.

Alex Pettyfer may or may not be doing every teen movie ever.

If I knew about this Nathan Fillion Green Lantern thing, I had forgotten. Awesome.

This is the sort of link I should probably just send my dad, but: It's a really good and important read about cannibalism and comparing genocides. I swear.

I haven't had a chance to read that whole big New Yorker Scientology article yet, but Vulture has some highlights.

Brian Jacques has died. Sad.

As I'm sure you've heard by now, AOL bought HuffPo. Read the Awl's take here.

Get well soon, Robert Kubica!

Robert Pattinson will sing in Breaking Dawn. Which . . . doesn't he have a band? Why is this such a big deal?

Your James Franco project of the day.

We've been big fans of Current for awhile, though in 2010/2011 they've made changes we're not quite used to. For a long time they were our number one channel, based on their blend of serious news documentaries (the Lisa Ling issue in Korea for example) and hysterical and smart commentary (InfoMania & Rotten Tomatoes) and reairing of things like This American Life & the Ewan McGregor travel documentaries. I've felt like the changes they've recently made have been growing pains, and will be interested to see if this is true, how it will impact them. (We've felt a little alienated truly, in the past six months, as long time viewers.)
