R.I.P. Psychic Octopus, Charlie Sheen, And Halloween Parties In Today's Twitter Report

Charlie SheenI'm assuming that Warren Ellis, Jhnonez Vasquez and Matt Fraction won't all be attending the same Halloween party this week, but after seeing Fraction's costume proposal yesterday and Ellis and Vasquez's today, you have to imagine that few parties could generate the kind of reactions that the three of them would walking into a room together all dressed up.

Meanwhile, Charlie Sheen has been in the news today following reports that he was found intoxicated in a hotel room, and even sadder news hit the feed today as it was revealed that Paul the psychic octopus has passed away. Remembrances and Gail Simone's thoughts on the new "Yogi Bear" film await you after the jump.

I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for October 26, 2010.

Paul pt. 1: @andydiggle BBC News 24 story on Paul the Psychic Octopus is immediately followed by a story on Take That. Aren't there, like, a couple of wars on...?

-Andy Diggle, Writer ("The Losers," "Daredevil")

Paul pt. 2: @simonpegg He knew this day was coming. RIP Paul the octopus.

-Simon Pegg, Actor ("Star Trek," "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn")

Paul pt. 3: @mattfraction What does julian assange think about the passing of Paul the octopus, media?

-Matt Fraction, Writer ("Thor," "Casanova")

@BrianReed As the reviews continue, FABLE 3 becomes "love it" or "it's okay." FORCE UNLEASHED 3 is firmly in "1 part shovelware, 1 part fan fiction."

-Brian Reed, Writer ("Ms. Marvel," "Secret Invasion: Front Line")

@KatzMoney Oh, Charlie Sheen. The gift that keeps on giving.

-Jeff Katz, Writer/Producer ("Booster Gold," "Freddy vs Jason vs Ash")

@JhonenV Got in trouble last year for answering the door pantsless on Halloween. This year I will wear my MC Hammer, balloon pants made of shlongs.

-Jhonen Vasquez, Writer/Artist ("Johnny the Homicidal Maniac," "Invader Zim")

@warrenellis If I can just fit my head inside this pig's arse, my David Cameron halloween costume will be complete

-Warren Ellis, Writer ("Planetary," "Transmetropolitan")

Deep Thought for the Day:

@GailSimone I would like to introduce some genuine viral marketing, that if you worked on the cgi Yogi Bear movie, you catch a virus and die.

-Gail Simone, Writer ("Birds of Prey," "Wonder Woman")
