Worth Your Consideration #019 - A GF5 Linkdump

  • Ain’t It Cool News and Lostpedia hooked us up with the promotional poster for the fifth season of Lost last night, and I have to say that I’m a big fan of this thing. Blue Eagle Islander at the Lostpedia Blog calls it “too much of a clone of the Season 4 poster,” but I have to respectfully disagree. If it’s close in theme to the season four poster, it deviates in how much more attention is given to the characters, as opposed to the landscape. It’s a subtle difference, but could actually end up being a telling one.
  • If Lost inspires you to write, as it sure as hell does for me, then Forty Chapters might be worth checking out. Mashable offers a pretty favorable review.
  • The Nine Inch Nails tour that I and others have been telling you to go and see since the summer now has trailer. It’s brief, but it gives you a full-motion snippet of what you’re in for if you’re lucky enough to score a ticket.
  • I have never been a big fan of music subscription services like the Zune Pass—as Uncle Steve suggests, I’d rather own my music—but a recent development has piqued my Interest. As reported today by Electronista, the $15 monthly Zune Pass now gives subscribers the option of keeping 10 songs permanently at the end of each month. That’s a really tempting offer. Access to all of the music in their library, plus 10 songs per month to keep even if/when I quit the service? If Apple/iTunes offered that, I’d be signing up today.
