Morning Roundup: Tim Burton Does Not Take Angelina Jolie for His Evil Sorceress

Morning Roundup Time! Every morning we gather some cool outside links and highlights from the satellite sites and our handy “Of Interest” sidebar for your pre-work perusal. Check out the Facebook portals themselves—linked below—for even more items that might tickle your fancy.

This morning we’re changing out our bookshelves for some more artistic specimens and smoking smoke pork in our favorite astromech droid.

From the “Of Interest” Sidebar:

  • Time Burton has said no to Maleficient, Disney’s live-action retelling of the Sleeping Beauty story. We wonder if Angelina Jolie is disappointed….
  • A meditation on the ray gun, in all of its glorious forms over the years, and how history has morphed it.
  • We always knew there had to be another use for that trash can-shaped swiss army knife: the R2-D2 smoker.

Stubby the Rocket is the mascot and often random voice of Stubby’s got a ray gun.
