Dear M. Night Shyamalan,

Did you actually say, "The features of the characters [in the animated series] are an intentional mix of all features. It's intended to be ambiguous."

Intended to be ambiguous? Are we even looking at the same show (warning: extremely image-heavy)?!

No love,

Me

So if you haven't heard about the whitewashing of the live-action movie of Avatar: The Last Airbender, well, I have two images and one video:

The images (from racebending.com, where they used to be on the front page, now no longer hotlinked):

characters in original

characters in movie

and an embedded video )

Screw flying cars. Where is my in-home custom clothing fabricator?

(Prompted by an unfun trip to get maternity clothes. Chad thought I was going to say "uterine replicator," but I pointed out that even if I wasn't needing maternity clothes now, I'd still have to buy clothes sometime.)

The first four episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender were entertaining; pitched a little young, but that did make them undemanding after a long day. We'll probably keep watching.

Hugo nominees update:

Ragamuffin (booklog) and The Orphan's Tales: In the Cities of Coin and Spice (booklog) for novel; honorable mention to The Secret History of Moscow (booklog), which I am allergic to. The Arrival (booklog) for related book, which you all have to go out and get right this minute, seriously, I mean it!

I may try and squeeze in Acacia, but am unlikely to get to Shelter (I'm sick of winter and am not much for dystopias at the best of times).

Just a few links, because I've been spending all my delicious time on boskone reports.
