"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
Somewhere over Lyra's Oxford.

The trailer for The Golden Compass, first book of the His Dark Materials series (which is definitely one of the best sets of books I've ever read), just dropped.

Actors look bang-on. Art direction looks awesome.

I am tentatively hopeful that it will not suck!

(And Lyra really does look like Lyra. Yay!)
