Depp is Mad! Death to Decadent Rodents! And Other Pop Culture News

My e-mail is full of pop culture goodies. Just let me share!

Johnny Depp is going to play the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's next project, Alice in Wonderland. I think he's slowly being typecast as crazy guy.

And, in other news. Stephen Colbert will appear in Spider-man this October.

There's been a fatwah issued against Mickey Mouse.

And, a friend forwarded me a link to an article she read in Southwest airlines' inflight mag about Steve Bissette and the cartooning center he started in Vermont. Watch out for a juicy quote from Frenchy Lunning, the editor-in-chief of Mechademia, the journal I worked on this year.

But he's a wonderful crazy guy! I don't care. My favorite actor in a version of my favorite book?! Following in the footsteps of some wonderful folks. Maybe, just maybe, Burton won't screw things up...

Good lord, Kate! That was fast. I just posted that. Surfing on lunch break?

Avoiding work as always. There's this new thing in Blogger that shows your pals' updates when you go to the dashboard, so I can just click and I'm there.

Steve had been *desperately* trying to find a copy of that article, by the way. He might have got one by now, but I'm not sure. Check MyRant.

Hey Anonymous jnoblogZone

What was a tree doing in your bedroom?

Kate:

I take it that he's looking for a hard copy?

K. A. Laity said...

Re: Bissette, yes on both counts, hard copy and teachin' the Bilokur.

I was wondering about the tree as well!

I'm sure Burton will somehow get the Daddy factor worked into the story- he'll have to be super creative about it, though!
