Tuesday terrors: It's almost Christmas, American teenagers are dumb, and Darth Vader took a selfie


I just looked at my calender for the first time this month--December 3 but it just seems to have a feel that December is already over. Maybe it's due to the oddly short time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Maybe it's because the rest of 2013 was a steamroller of time, marching through existence like a pale midnight rider.. taking with it the memories of the year and the hopes and dreams that never became reality through the last eleven months..

It's almost Christmas, everyone. And almost 2014. I can hardly wait until the SYFY TWILIGHT ZONE marathon heralds us into a new beginning..

And now for the news..

NO news is GOOD news? CNN is about to make a major change and have LESS news.. Well, the Weather Channel stopped airing weather.. The Central New Network may as well fire all their newscasters.. Call me crazy, but I miss the days of CNN'S HEADLINE NEWS back in the early days when they'd have a live broadcast, every half hour, of the news of the moment. Real news--like NEWS, and not just blips and beeps coming from talking heads. I am tired of politics.. I am tired of the 'right wing and left wing' arguments, arguments that go no where and are tired out from their own weight of hair air. And now CNN will air less news.. I am releasing a big 'sigh.'
I suppose this is only more evidence to show why millions of people go immediately to the INTERNET and Twitter for news--news you cannot find, or ever will, on any news network on the TEE VEE..

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..
