According to the Huffington Post:
In 2007, the FBI published fake Associated Press articles and impersonated an AP reporter in emails meant to help unmask a hoaxer who was sending bomb threats to a high school in Washington state. But the agency didn’t do a particularly credible job, even failing to follow AP Style.


The full OIG report is here.

Solomon Todd would not have made such a rookie mistake.

So new, in fact, that the main page hasn't caught up yet! Not that that stops our Powers That Be ...

The Kung Fu Master is [IN]

The penultimate episode of Shadow Unit is now live on the WTF network: Asylum, by C. L. Polk and Elizabeth Bear.

No spoilers here - but do keep an eye open for the hidden DVD extra.

In case you missed the announcement on the main page, Shadow Unit episode 4x11 Due North, by Leah Bobet ([livejournal.com profile] leahbobet), is now online at http://www.shadowunit.org/duenorth.html.

Good stuff, as one would expect from the Shadow Unit crew.

Well, let's see:

1) We finally got a snowstorm to leave some of the white stuff around here (instead of continuing to dump on Baltimore and DC). Much prettier looking than the combination of grimy plow leavings and bare patches that I've had for the last few weeks.

2) Season 3 of Shadow Unit is underway.

3) I've put in my request for this year's Amplifying Your Effectiveness conference. I missed last year's conference due to the unhappy timing of certain events at the Current Paying Gig; however, those events are not going to recur this year. The Great And Powerful Oz Has Spoken.

4) I've also mailed off my registration for the All-Star II conference on Star Island. Between Star and 4th Street Fantasy, the summer should get started with a bang.

...

Hmm. Looks like four things make a post. Or at least this post. Works for me!

Season Three of Shadow Unit officially starts next Sunday, and one of the threads on the Shadow Unit message boards is, appropriately enough, the countdown until episode 3.01 The Unicorn Evils airs.

That thread, in turn, inspired the following filk:


We're waiting together
But still ECR
We're hoping they'll come back
From wherever they are

I hope there will be a Gulfstream
That's leaving ground (leaving ground)
Will things be all right for our team?
It's the S3 countdown

The S3 countdown

Oh we're ready to refresh (refresh)
And set to go "Awww"
When Wabbit in the flesh
Takes Coyote's paw

With so many stories untold
And eggs to be found (to be found)
Oh where is our next episode?
It's the S3 countdown

The S3 countdown (S3 countdown)

Oh ... oh

The S3 countdown (S3 countdown)

Oh ... oh

It's the S3 countdown

The S3 countdown (S3 countdown)

It's the S3 countdown
We're ready to refresh
The S3 countdown
Our next episode
It's the S3 countdown (S3 countdown)
Oh, it's the S3 countdown!


(Links in the filk are to pages in the Shadow Unit Wiki. Any who are woefully confused may find amelioration of such confusion therein.)

(ETA: In case it isn't obvious, the tune is Europe's The Final Countdown.)
edschweppe: (shadow unit)
In honor of the season, and in particular honor of the highly-anticipated Very Special Holiday Episode of Shadow Unit, scheduled to be aired Christmas Day, I present to you a filk, to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas"





Cut because we care )
(Easter eggs? Would I do that?)

And I have at least some idea, for I have committed ... fanfic in the Shadow Unit universe. (My bit starts here.)

According to these reactions, I appear to have fan-fic'd quite successfully. I'm especially pleased that both Emma Bull ([livejournal.com profile] coffeeem) and Elizabeth Bear ([livejournal.com profile] matociquala) liked my contribution, as they are the two main writers of Shadow Unit. (Not to mention the collection of Hugo and Nebula nominations that Emma has, or Elizabeth's Campbell and Hugo awards.)

On the other hand, considering how much time it took for me to come up with those few paragraphs, and how crappily-paid most fiction writers are, I think I'll keep the day job...
