"The guy with the weird hand"

I showed Mom the opening sequence of FFX up through the end of the "We called it Sin" bit and the beginning of the first battle. She liked Tidus, thought Auron was creepy as all get out with his "weird hand", and was fairly convinced he'd summoned the big tidal wave to wipe out the city.

I swear, when I first saw him, I thought he looked like a cool cookie. Did anyone else think he was sinister? Okay, yes, I thought he looked a bit sinister, but in that "I am Batman" sort of way.

How to help Peter S. Beagle defeat King Haggard

Peter S. Beagle has written many wonderful books. The Last Unicorn is wildly popular. The company that turned it into a film is claiming they made almost no profit, and therefore they don't owe him anything.

I think this is fishy, and I think Peter is a mighty good fellow who's touched an awful lot of people. He's attempting to put the money together to sue. There are various ways to help him. Click the link above for more information.
