Assorted interesting things stumbled across recently:

A Hollywood firm is heavily involved in acquiring movie rights to a number of popular (and not-so-popular) anime and manga titles, as well as some computer game franchises. Among those video games? 1980s arcade classic Joust. Repeat after me: WTF, Batman?

Guy in Taiwan goes on a killing spree, tries to blame an anime show. I’ll have to try that excuse out sometime – “Sorry, officer; it’s not that I was speeding, just that I was recreating one of my favorite chase scenes from Scooby Doo.”

The government of British Columbia – which supposedly aims to be the “most open and accountable” government in Canada – apparently likes to assert copyright on records released under Canada’s freedom-of-information laws. In other words, you can have what you asked for, but you can’t share it with anyone. Talk about missing the point, huh?

Ah, the smell of rabidly crazy people in the morning

My favorite nonexistent band has a website now, where you can download a whole bunch of their songs. (If you don’t read Questionable Content, you should.)

Better living through technology: an elephant with a prosthetic leg. Yes, an elephant. What will they think of next?
