Case of the post-Thanksgiving Mondays

MONDAY DECEMBER 2, 2013
THE 'GRIND' RESUMES.

For lots, it never ended. Today is also Cyber Monday. Which is an annoying term, but at least it prevents stores from using that horrendous word "doorbusters" to describe their sales.
So does HEALTHCARE.GOV work in time for Cyber Monday?

Onto the news..

More scary Google patent news: Google files patent for robot that writes your Facebook posts, emails and tweets - but will need FULL access to scan your accounts It would study you, be you, and mimic you. When someone posts a message, your robot you would reply just as you would. But what if the other person is a bot, too? What if we are all bots? This is a ride down to the abyss, where your mind will be dead to 'them' and your body will simply be a cavern of organs, blood, and a semi-beating heart.

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

“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..
