Grant Morrison’s web site has been updated for the first time in years.

Thanks to Klintron on Technoccult:

There’s also a new column he’s running there (you’re supposed to register to be able to see it, but direct links there seem to work fine):

The mental, magical immersion in the DC Universe of superheroes that’s consumed all my time these five years past is finally, and quite literally, drawing to its apocalyptic conclusion and I can’t concentrate on much else until the dust settles.

[…]

What else? It’s been hectic but I’m having a good time doing these ‘Final’ storylines for Superman, Batman and the DC Universe itself. I want to end on a couple of big, definitive stories before I take a break from superheroes for a little while and I’m really happy with the way all of these are turning out.

AAA PPV to debut 08-24-2008 in the US

Posted by invizweb on July 9, 2008

Breaking News: The AAA PPV show will be moved to Sunday August 24, 2008. It is speculated this is due to ROH having a show around the time of the original prospective show date of August 1st, and since ROH and AAA now have a talent exchange program the two groups wanted to make sure this show succeeds by not competing with another show. The matches appeared to be pretaped. I think that second Ciber in the semi is a typo. Also I am not certain but I think they mean Pentagon not Octagon.

Here is the tentative card according to this site.

Main Event: LA PARKA -VS- CIBERNETICO

Semifinal: DOME OF DEATH
The Mexican luchadores
Cibernético, Apocalipsis, Chessman, and Chary Manson
-VS-
The Foreign Legion
Kenzo Suzuki, X-Pac and El Mesías

BROTHER VS BROTHER
Charly Manson
-VS-
Electroshock

FATHER -VS- SON
Juventud Guerrera, Sangre Chicana
-VS-
Fuerza Guerrera, Octagon

RUDOS -VS- TECHNICOS

MINI LUCHADORES
The Rudos
Mini-Chessman, Mini-Abismo Negro, Mini- Jerrito Estrada
-VS-
The Técnicos
Octagoncito, Mascarita Sagrada, La Parkita

Enough Already: Big Pharma Wants To Medicate Kids Again, This Time For Cholesterol

Posted by invizweb on July 9, 2008

Thanks to the big don, Gary C Baddeley @ Disinfo for posting the article and giving it a new title.

Mike Carney for USA Today On Deadline reported:

A leading group of pediatricians wants some children to begin taking cholesterol medication at age 8.

“If we are more aggressive about this in childhood, I think we can have an impact on what happens later in life … and avoid some of these heart attacks and strokes in adulthood,” Dr. Stephen Daniels of the American Academy of Pediatrics tells the Associated Press.

The group is advising physicians to begin screening children for high cholesterol between the ages of 2 and 10.
