The Dork Report for September 22, 2006

  • Aww, look! The cutest li’l spaceships you ever did see, from IconFactory.
  • Voting is open for the MyDreamApp first elimination round. You can vote for up to 18 projects, so the task is really better described as choosing which 6 will have to leave the island. The three I find most interesting and/or useful to me are Blossom (a virtual plant that feeds on productivity), Ground Control (an at-a-glance view of well, everything going on in your Mac), and Whistler (bringing music making to the masses in an amazing new way, which if is technically possible, could be huge).
  • Two of my favorite Doctor Who stories are coming to DVD as parts of the Return of the Master DVD box set: "The Keeper of Traken" and "Logopolis," plus "Castrovalva." The exhaustive repair work done by the Restoration Team should put George Lucas to shame for dumping sub-par copies of the original Star Wars trilogy out on DVD.
  • WHO’s a good dog? Park Entertainment posts details and a poster (WHERE’s the hyphen?) on their site about K-9 Adventures.
  • Download Peter Gabriel’s Passion Outtakes, a bootleg of unreleased recordings from the Passion sessions and location recordings for Martin Scorcese’s The Last Temptation of Christ.
  • Gorillaz’ Phase Two – Slow Boat to Hades, a DVD of videos and live performances from over the past two years, is coming out in Europe on October 30. Comes with a CD-ROM and an absurd amount of extras.
