Here's what they are:
- I've been posting a lot on MyLeaky, the social networking site from The Leaky Cauldron. I'm known at Dean O. there. If you haven't joined yet, please do, and friend me. And please join the group I created, Housing Other Quartets.
- I have a piece on the latest episode of Inside the Magic, where I'm known as That Anonymous Guy. In it, I play a clip from The Black Hole and riff on it, MST3K-style. I also unabashedly plug this play and this blog. Thanks very much to ITM host and creator Ricky Brigante for letting me do that. Episode 204 is here, I'm on at the end, but the other segments by Skipper Ben and Jay and Mark are great, too.

Bespin investin’ brought
Fortune and fame.
He bent his ethics quite
Screwing his friends is just
Part of the game.
Looks like a tush
Is he the ultimate
Cheney’s lost ancestor?
Is Jar-Jar Bush?
(again, no need to debate politics here, but everyone seems to think the third prequel was a Bush critique, so ...)
