Odds and ends

Sorry about this post wandering all over the Wordcandy map, people...

Eric Schlosser and Charles Wilson have released Chew On This, a kid-friendly book exploring the same territory that Schlosser covered in Fast Food Nation. Highlights include information on what makes your drinks pink (hint: it has legs) and a description of the lives of the chickens that are destined to become chicken nuggets.

There is going to be an animated movie version of Neil Gaiman's Coraline. This not a surprise--Coraline is the kind of book that Hollywood laps up--but the news that Teri Hatcher and Dakota Fanning will be starring in it is kind of a bummer, frankly. I mean, it's gonna be a cartoon, so it's not like they'll be able to sell the movie by tempting us to go see Hatcher dressed up as a soulless monster with button eyes. Did they really have to cast two utterly pedestrian American actresses? Was every British actress with a decent voice between the ages of 11 and 50 busy?

And, last but not least, Wordcandy is trying to iron out some details so we can begin hosting Banhonsa, an awesome manhwa (Korean manga) with beautiful artwork and an amazing story. Banhonsa is being scanlated by Korean Manhwa, and we're hoping to have a home for the story soon.
