A SUNDAY MORNING SIDEWALK, Sunday November 10, 2013

A sampling of news from the world..



The horror in the Philippines is almost too much to grasp..10,000 dead from a storm? It could be that high, or higher. Yes, mother nature is cruel.. but we're told God is not. And if He's not, I urge someone to tell me why such events like this one happen..

The death toll from the superstorm in the Philippines could reach upwards of 10,000 people. There have been some who believe it may actually end up being even higher than that..
One witness described Haiyan of being like a tsunami..
The situation is dire, but with the conditions and lack of power, it will be some time before a true accounting of the devastation is actually known.

Hollywood Reporter laments Blockbuster: A eulogy for a three day rental..

People are mocking Blockbuster and what we, as movie watchers, used to do. I will tell you this, it wasn't that long ago ---up until about 4 years I was still renting at Blockbuster---that the store got me through many nights.. it was a shining gold light on top of a hill--quite literally for my store.. You felt like home in it.. I think people will one day miss movies this way. Same way I say we'll miss bookstores too..

More news later.. until then, enjoy your stroll down the Sunday morning Sidewalk..

New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
