Linkblogging for 01/12/08

No proper posts today, I’m afraid – I’m off work with a hacking cough, sore throat and, for some reason, aching legs, and for some reason am finding literally everything hysterically funny. I’m terribly afraid that if I try to write anything properly today, I’ll wake up tomorrow and just find a post that says “I’ve got legs! Look! Two of them!” So here are some things that other people have written:

Fred Clark points out that the bad acting in Left Behind: The Movie is symptomatic of its bad theology.

Pillock on Mark Millar – “It’s a terrible thing to start out John Lydon and end up Jeph Loeb”. Indeed – though I would also say it’s a terrible thing to start out John Lydon and end up advertising butter…

Jennie has some choice words to say about Nick Clegg after he (allegedly) made some particularly stupid remarks in front of a journalist. I’ve got a lot to say on this at some point when I’m coherent, but it boils down to a) Clegg wouldn’t have been the leader I’d have chosen, b) despite that I think he’s doing a pretty decent job, and c) I’ve never yet met him so can’t judge him on a personal level. At the same time, what she says doesn’t surprise me at all…

The Independent in something worth reading shocker – a really good interview with Terry Pratchett . Of course, the same issue also had an article headed “Don’t panic! We can go skiing and save the planet” which was the worst kind of middle-class pseudo-environmentalist self-justifying consumerist wank imaginable, so it doesn’t look like it’s the start of a new trend in a paper which goes visibly downhill almost by the day since the new editor took over after doing much the same to the Observer...

And amypoodle at Mindless Ones has some stuff to say about Batman RIP, to which I will be returning myself once I’m semi-lucid.
