This is very very cool. MySociety have finished [livejournal.com profile] chrislightfoot's (RIP) London travel-time maps with the help of some cash from the Department of Transport. You can play around with a flash version that compares travel time to Westminster with property prices, etc. Rather nice. The hotspots nearer the edges around train stations and tube stops are a nice touch.

The New Bond movie is called Quantum of Solace, based around a short story in For Your Eyes Only, which I think I've read. Daft title, anyway. But more important, a new MI6 agent will be played by Gemma "Head Girl from St. Trinian's" Arterton. Sorry, I'll stop drooling now. So that's one we'll be going to see then.

Lastly, um, WTF? DC Comics to kill off Batman?
DC says issue 676 - entitled Batman R.I.P - will "change the legend of the Dark Knight forever!". The blurb adds: "Who will live? Who will die? Who will be Batman? The answers are sure to shock you in Batman R.I.P."
They "killed off" Superman, now what, Bruce Wayne dies but Grayson take son the mantle? Or something even more daft. Written by Grant Morrison, so there is at least hope that it's not awful. Hope, I said. Ever the optimist, me.
OK, so [livejournal.com profile] requiem2adream posted a YouTube parody of the PC/Mac adds where it's DC/Marvel, and it amused me, lots. She also linked to the whole series of them. So I watched them. One after another. All evening. I chuckled. Lots. Toy superheroes arguing over their movie deals. Then they went to the bar.

Part one-Starring Hulk as the bouncer! )
Part two, because I can't resist posting it as well )
Of course, you may not actually have watched any of the films, or know who any of the characters are, or something. Um, which rock are you living under, and does it have WiFi?

Meh, off to watch a [livejournal.com profile] now_show recording tomorrow (with [livejournal.com profile] innerbrat), spent the evening in the pub with [livejournal.com profile] nadriel and [livejournal.com profile] d_notice_fd. Knackered. Time to sleep.

Oh yeah, nearly forgot. Doctor Whoogle, and other BBC Firefox / IE7 search plugins (Via [livejournal.com profile] tsitsoss_rss)
