Almost 20,000 Indonesians flee erupting volcano

An urgently important story coming out of Indonesia tonight.. Mount Sinabung has been erupting for months.. overnight last night it shot lava into the air nine times. As a result, 19,000 have been forced to flea as the volcano shows more signs it's ready to blow..

The thing I cannot stop thinking about was how it was just nine years ago, around Christmas 2004, when Indonesia was decimated by the massive tsunami resulting from an earthquake.. and now, the same area is worrying about a volcano that is threatening so many..

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...

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 …

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..
