I really liked Persepolis, the book and the movie, by Marjane Satrapi. That is why I am so excited to hear about a sequel of sort, Persepolis 2.0. It includes an expanded storyline about the recent events happening in Iran. While not by Satrapi herself it is being made with her approval.

Last year while I had nothing to do during the day. Well, actually I did have something to do but didn't feel like doing it. I stumbled upon perhaps the greatest children's show since Sesame Street, Yo Gabba Gabba. To the annoyance of my wife I filled our DVR with episodes, constant conversation about the show and occasionally reinterpretations of the songs and dances I saw that day. Well I'm pleased to announce to any other appreciator that the Pink Hobo Gallery in Minneapolis is hosting a show called The Art of Yo Gabba Gabba. I want to go to there.
