Link roundup

1. Six Flags is ditching most of its branded rides as a cost-cutting move:

The new-new name will be "Apocalypse" and the coaster itself will stay pretty much the same. But where Six Flags takes one in the pants, is they spent upwards of $1 million on the Terminator-themed intro in the queue. It included several animatronic Terminators and a training video featuring two of the film's stars, Common and Moon Bloodgood.

Six Flags will now remove all the Terminator robots and re-shoot the sequence to match the new Apocalypse theme. The coaster will officially no longer be Terminator: Salvation and bear its new name as of January 8, 2011.

2. McBess posted a wallpaper-sized version of the (NSFW) illustration he created for the cover of Nobrow 4. (Copies are available at Amazon.)

3. Michael Douglas is either dying or well on his way to recovery depending on which gossip magazine you read.
