Dust in the Martian wind

Was this a river on Mars?? It sure looks like one to me.. Pretty cool and, if it was, reinforces the host of questions we all have about the red and maybe once blue little planet..

Monday night geriatrics

Monday Night Raw was 20 years old last night. I was flipping channels and saw a truly elderly Rick Flair trying to bring back the past.

And it made me laugh in spite of myself--plus feel rather old as well, knowing this man entertained me much throughout my childhood.

And I thought he was old then!

Woooooooo

Lady Gaga's new fun gun bra

Gaga's got a gun--on get bra!!
And according to a report in the always reputable UK SUN, she risks 'outrage' over it with the recent rash of shootings in America..

Not sure how accurate it could be that she is risking such hostile outrage-- though PETA was outraged years back when she wore a meat dress. But if people get outraged in a large number than people need to reassess what they get outraged about, because a gun on a bra sure ain't worth it.

Jodie Foster steals the show at Golden Globes

Her lifetime achievement award speech garnered tears from the Hollywood audience and had a meaning far beyond Tinseltown.. Foster said, in part: "You see, Charlie and Kit, sometimes your mom loses it too. I can’t help but get moony, you know. This feels like the end of one era and the beginning of something else. Scary and exciting and now what? Well, I may never be up on this stage again, on any stage for that matter. Change, you gotta love it. I will continue to tell stories, to move people by being moved, the greatest job in the world. It’s just that from now on, I may be holding a different talking stick. And maybe it won’t be as sparkly, maybe it won’t open on 3,000 screens, maybe it will be so quiet and delicate that only dogs can hear it whistle. But it will be my writing on the wall. Jodie Foster was here, I still am, and I want to be seen, to be understood deeply and to be not so very lonely.

"Thank you, all of you, for the company. Here’s to the next 50 years."

Fiction or not, ZERO DARK THIRTY tops the weekend box office

The movie has been controversial.. There have been conspiracy theories.. The CIA was even reportedly angry at ZERO DARK THIRTY, the movie about the demise of Osama Bin Laden..
