Pop Culture News Roundup 01.16.09

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Pop Culture News Roundup


If you’re anything like me, I love browsing through my feeds, scouring for interesting news all over the Internet. It’s a dirty job, but it’s worth it when I find those face-rocking news items. I’m here now to share to you comics and pop culture news that I found this week. This is actually me continuing what I started with Comics News Roundup, only more pop culture-y.

ITEM! Heath Ledger posthumously received the Golden Globe award for Best Supporting Actor! It was for his legendary role as the Joker in The Dark Knight, which I’ve already watched a bajirrion times. Nerds all over the Internet are now hoping for an Oscar. FOR HEATH!

ITEM! First OFFICIAL Winnie the Pooh story in 80+ years! The first authorized sequel to “Winnie the Pooh and the House at Pooh Corner” is entitled “Return to the Hundred Acre Wood” and will be released on October 5th, 2009. I haven’t read the original, but hey. Maybe it’s time that I do.

ITEM! Patrick McGoohan and Ricardo Montalban passed away. Rest in peace, legends of Geekdom.



Ask Cerebra: The Comics Blog Search Engine

Sometimes, you just have to know what comics bloggers are saying about… I dunno… Joe Quesada and Dan Didio allegedly having midnight sword fights to determine who’ll be the next ruler of Hell? And what better way to do this than to seek the help of search engines, right? Wrong. You can do better. You can Ask Cerebra.
