1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Wait a minute! Now that the first black president is looming in our future, what about a black James Bond for us? Daniel Craig says, "Why not?"

    Does anyone remember Scotty? He was an American spy more than forty years ago.

    Djimon Hounsou could do it. He reminds me of Craig a bit, actually.

    Chiwetel Ejiofor, in the Connery/Brosnan smooth-but-still-actionable mode.

    Nah. James Bond is as white as they get, IMO.

    Cool show.

    If I recall correctly, Diddy was interested in the job after Brosnan's departure

    If Sydney Poitier was 50 years younger, I would have signed him up!

    Craig must really be jonesing for a black Bond. I read this interview in PARADE a few weeks ago where Craig decided Obama would be a better Bond, and McCain a better M.

    +1 I love Ejiofor in just about any role. That movie Firefly wasn't very good, but he was an awesome villain. Well worth watching just for that.

    .... I also went down that road. I think Richard Roundtree could also pull it off, assuming a black Bond is allowed to behave black.
