    Since when does "Shut your pie hole" reference a woman's vagina? I thought it meant to shut your mouth (the mouth typically the place where one puts pie). If people are putting pies in women's vaginas, I think that they should stop. It just doesn't seem sanitary. Although it could still be a reference to sweet potato pie, possible, but I doubt it.

    I was also previously unaware of the "true" definition of the phrase "scum bag," and that it was so offensive!

    Cracked dot com has a pretty cool article on movie effects that look like CGI but were done the old fashioned way

    There's some wonderful video footage of all the forced perspective tricks in the LOTR films in the extras bits on the extended editions. Some insane levels of craft and skill in there. WETA had a mantra where if it was possible to do it for real, they did. Whilst at the same time WETA Digital were pioneering all kinds of other cool CGI bits and bobs. Must be a great place to work.

    Oh, BUMMER!

    I really liked the "Sarah Jane Adventures" show. Silly fun, and I thought Sladen did a great job.

    Doctor Who Star Elisabeth Sladen Passes Away at 63
    Doctor Who fans around the world are currently in shock by today's news of the sudden passing of Elisabeth Sladen.

    Sladen was most known—and absolutely beloved—for her portrayal of journalist Sarah Jane Smith on Doctor Who, a role that she made popular in the 1970s and reprised once again in 2006 alongside the revival of the series. This eventually led to her starring in the character's own program, The Sarah Jane Adventures, which was due to begin filming its fourth season soon.

    According to preliminary reports from Doctor Who Magazine, as well as from Who alumni Nicola Bryant and Paul Cornell, the 63-year-old Sladen died of complications involving cancer.

    Has Your State Banned Sodomy?
    It's been eight years since the Supreme Court officially knocked down anti-sodomy laws as unconstitutional in Lawrence v. Texas, but Texas' state legislature has thus far refused to remove the law from the books—in large part because most Texas Republicans still support it. In 2010, the state GOP made defense of the anti-sodomy statute part of its platform, calling for the state to effectively ignore the the law of the land: "We demand that Congress exercise its authority granted by the U.S. Constitution to withhold jurisdiction from the federal courts from cases involving sodomy."
