Let’s do another Dream Cast. If Cowboy Bebop were made into a live-action movie, who would play the main characters? I suggest:
Nick Stahl as the fearless, lanky, pointy-nosed Spike Spigel. Spike isn’t fearless because he thinks he’s indestructable, he’s fearless because he doesn’t seem to care what happens to him. Stahl could both look and act the part, assuming he’s up for the stunts and martial arts.
Ron Glass as the wise, strong, and patient Jet. Jet is tricky because he’s older, yet muscular. Check out some of the scenes from Firefly where Book and Jamie are lifting weights. Ron glass is ripped for a guy his age. He looks and sounds the part. I’d love to see him do it.
AnnaSophia Robb as the clever and curious Radical Edward. (Who is a girl) AnnaSophia starred in Because of Win-Dixie as well as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and she’s brilliant. She’d have to do the part soon, though: she’ll be too old in a couple of years.
Kirsten Dunst as the irresponsible, trashy, gambling-addict Faye. A young Sharon Stone would be even better, but I think Dunst could pull it off without us needing to resort to time-travel or cloning.
Heather points out that Angelina Jolie is a much better choice if you want trashy. She’s too old, but doesn’t look too old. She’s better than Dunst, anyway.
Lost Laughs in Leisure Suit Larry
Why was this classic adventure game so funny in the 80's, and why did it stop being funny?

An interesting but technically dense talk about gaming technology. I translate it for the non-coders.
What was the problem with the Playstation 3 hardware and why did Sony build it that way?
PC Gaming Golden Age
It's not a legend. It was real. There was a time before DLC. Before DRM. Before crappy ports. It was glorious.
