Little known to those outside of the Hollywood rumor mill, Gillian Anderson was once in talks with Fox to produce a children’s show between shooting the third and fourth seasons of The X-Files. While the show never went to air, a test episode has recently been unearthed, wherein the scifi star, aloft a large sofa, devotes 10-minute segments to Telling Time, What To Do When You Go #2 and Manners. Anderson was eventually considered an “ill fit” for the program, after she “attempted to simulate oral sex on her puppet sidekick,” a former Fox employee says. The show was later reworked into The Big Comfy Couch.

That it turned from summer to fall overnight has me all kinds of excited, and hurriedly whipping out my vest, Pumpkin Spice, Taylor Swift, and Gilmore Girls.  So maybe that’s why recalling Veronica Mars in my father’s house by myself at 5:45 this evening — that’s the movie, not the TV show — has me full-to-bursting with love.  It’s still my favorite movie of the year.  It dwarfs the others like Logan dwarfs Veronica.  See above for proof.  I am still in love with this movie.

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here:

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown:  


I’m sure you’ve all seen what’s up with Tumblr, but this is REALLY serious, guys.

4 real tho

This is important. Please take part in it. Please.

Sites like tumblr, where people can freely discuss societal and political issues would suffer tremendously. I swear sending a message to FCC is so important for everyone in the United States, where the Internet is the only true outlet for this kind of stuff.
