What's happenin' mofo?

Some spunky links for your web browser.

cartoony wolf thing1) A very funny and characterful comic strip by Mike Russell points out the differences between the X-Men films and comics. Not as nerdy as you'd think. But still quite nerdy, nonetheless.

    2) Is Justin Timberlake still any good? Who knows, but you can hear an amazing 17 seconds!!! of new single Sexyback on fan website Timberlakefan.com (how did they come up with that catchy URL?!!). The lyrics go like this: "I'm bringing sexy back / You motherfuckers don't know how to act". It is quite weird.

    3) The latest in a long series of links to people recreating video games in real life. This time: Tetris. With milkcrates.

    4) After the disappointment of Janet's comeback, it's good to hear one of my other favourite acts getting back to form. Philadelphia rap act The Roots are back with a new single which is a proper catchy old-skool hip hop track. It's so retro, in fact, the leaked version is only available as a low quality audio stream on XXL's website. How very 2001.

    5) The BBC is releasing the name of the new Doctor Who assistant at midnight tonight - I'd expect to see a story on the news website shortly after. If you've been paying attention to the tabloids, though, you'll already know who's got the part...

    6) While I'm talking about the Timelord, I should say I'm not a huge fan of the series. David Tennant and Billie Piper are great, I grant you, and the programme has a lot of energy. But the scripts are too verbose, and the extras are hammy and cheesy (sounds like a nice sandwich). At the same time, the programme's website is fantastic - and the MP3 episode commentaries with Rusell T Davies are supercute.
