Monday night ramblings

While the world was busy trying to find a missing airliner, lots of other stuff happened.

A wrap on a troubling, troublesome, and scary day in March.

We're Fuk-ed.. Radiation begins to hit the West Coast of the Untied States--despite all those experts who said no fear .. radiation is here. Of course it's also being called 'low level.' Low level radiation.. It's nice to put some happy adjectives before a dreadfully serious word, isn't it?? 

Lots of earthquakes are rattling earth just in time for the anniversary of the big Japan quake.. in just the past day a strong 6.9 hit Northern California, a 5.8 rattled Southern Mexico..and this: Three earthquakes shook Ohio and were felt in Pennsylvania Monday.. ..  Some in Ohio called 911 fearing that the earthquake was actually an intruder in their homes..  Marcellus Shale territory .. One result of the earthquakes: Ohio has halted gas drilling near Youngstown. Not that there's any connection................

Scientists have discovered that Yellowstone is TWO AND A HALF TIMES larger than previously thought.. the TORONTO SUN asks 'when will Yellowstone blow?' .. and their report reminds us that most of North America will be 'wiped out'..

America is filled with dilapidated structures, broken down bridges, and pothole infested highways. Trains are dead.. Malls are dying. The nation is shifting into a lower standard of living. But at one time this nation was thriving.. here's some images of the past. It wasn't great for all, and sometimes for no one.. But these photos of yesterday showcase perfectly that the nation was in its youth and alive with energy and vibrancy. ..

Here's my parenting tip of the day: Children watch what you do, and say what you say. They emulate behavior.. they love and hate the same things you do. They have their own personalities, but the amount of sway that a parent has over the life of a child from the moment of birth on is amazing.. This YouTube video commercial presented displays great examples of how that could be a very bad thing.  Stay strong, parents. Your children--and the future of humanity--depend on it..




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..
