SQL Korma

Korma is a new Clojure library for SQL from Chris Granger, who is also responsible for the popular Noir web framework. Korma looks very promising; it is a very simple, direct mapping of SQL syntax into composable primatives. In contrast to ClojureQL which is a Relational Algebra to SQL compiler, Korma looks like it should result in less surprising SQL generation.

Mike Mignola talks about ghost movies

Adult Swim interviews Hellboy creator Mike Mignola about ghost movies and stories.

“My favorite ghost stuff is the stuff that doesn't rely on special effects. It's mood and atmosphere. There's such an amazingly small handful of those movies. Any tool is great when used well, but I think these days restraint is not something people use.”
