Morning news sarcasm: High culture, low culture

operaHigh culture, with bunnies. A friend of mine actually went to see this production of Richard Wagner’s Die Walküre involving lightsabers, but us uncultured barbarians are probably better off with Chuck Jones and DVDs.

High culture, geek edition. Does the world really need another Tolkien book? Apparently, yes.

It’s on TV! Variety’s Season Pass blog has a great interview with Lost‘s Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof. Sorry, no snark here: If you watch the show, this is a must-read.

Video games. Bad reviews make creators sad? Come on guys, you work for LucasArts. Embrace the pain.

The catchup: Links from Twitter

Here are some of the things I’ve micro-blogged over @clubjade in the past few days.

Vintage Dharma ad by Adam Campbell, AKA hotmeteor @ FlickrDesign! Mockery! Jumpsuits! Vintage Dharma Initiative ads are by Lost fan Adam Campbell and awesome. (via)

Important questions of our time. How does Star Wars end?

The blogside. Author Sarah Zettel on her love/hate relationship with Star Wars.

Bacta! Dutch scientists have created a healing goo based on the liquid that protects embryos in the womb, but they’re calling it “baby butter.” Eww.

Tips. Authors behaving badly is common sense advice from a bookseller.

Cows as a security hazard and JJ Abrams on Star Wars

Bonnie scored yet another cool interview.  This time, she talks to JJ Abrams; he of Lost and Fringe and of another small series you might have heard about.  (Star Trek, people!  Not Felicity.)

So apparently JJ found out that you can’t take cows across the border from Canada.  It had to have an American stand-in.  And he loves creating interactive websites that expand his shows.

And as a long-time Star Wars fan, he had a really cool idea for StarWars.com:  how about an online Galactic Senate where fans could debate issues?  Star Wars fans love to debate things!

Lost kicks ass

Yeah, yeah, I know Lost had a weak season two and that season three was uneven, but for those of us who stuck with it, season four is the pay off. Anyway, a couple of articles of interest. The first about Locke and the second, um, well, mostly about Locke too and a bit of Ben.
