Worth Your Consideration 016 - A GF5 Linkdump

  • I’ve had the first episode of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles sitting unplayed on my Apple TV since about a week after its premiere (it was a free download on iTunes way back when), but this Newsarama piece on the show’s second season has piqued my interest, and I may have to finally sit down and devote an hour to the show now.
  • Earlier this year, when Marvel Comics retconned Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson’s marriage with their back-to-back “One More Day” and “Brand New Day” events, they introduced a new red-headed super-heroine by the name of Jackpot. She looks like Mary Jane, talks like Mary Jane, and has named herself after one of MJ’s most famous catchphrases, but her secret identity has yet to be revealed. Newsarama reports that the mystery will end in an upcoming Amazing Spider-Man annual, but me, I already know who it is: the resurrected Gwen Stacy. Yep, you heard it here first. And the masked villain Menace? That’s the long-dead Uncle Ben, come back to life. If the fanboys hated Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada before, I guarantee death threats this time around.
  • Jason Kottke describes the anatomical drawings on this site as “part medical and part American Apparel advertisement” and he’s pretty much dead-on.
  • And, lastly, Apple is giving me one more reason to enjoy trips up north to see my in-laws: an Apple Store in the Maine Mall. Stephanie may even be able to convince me to move up there now… Nah, probably not.
