Weird Wednesday

The midweek meltdown is beginning. I am particularly tired this early morning, not sure if it's due to increased travel or perhaps increased radiation from Fukushima. I have a tin foil hat but it doesn't seem to fit any longer.. Maybe an upgrade needs to be made to the deluxe version.
Until that..
News and more news.. better and worse and even worse than that. Presented for your reading displeasure..

A space rock craze hits South Korea after a meteor shower.. The hunt is on for valuable souvenirs in a corner of the country.. There seems to be lots of meteors and asteroids these days..

The world seems to be talking a lot more about war--more than we should. And Washington's BLOG writes a great piece on how the media's reporting on Russia and Ukraine is just as bad it was about Iraq..  I completely concur with that premise..

On Ukraine/Crimea/Russia, a wrap:
Fear over war as a Ukrainian officer was killed at a military base in Simferopol..
Ukraine on armed alert as war fears grow..
Biden goes to Poland to 'reassure allies'..
Russia warns the west over Crimea sanctions..

The newest NSA revelations say this: The surveillance program is able to go back in time replay your phone calls--recorded in a database for all snoops to hear..

People hold Snowden masks in Brasilia
The revelations about the NSA are on our newsfeeds  because of Edward Snowden. On Tuesday, Snowden remote controlled a robot from his undisclosed location and spoke to a TED audience. He said some more information--perhaps the most tantalizing yet--is coming..

Giant dust storms swallow part of Texas..

TIME (and lots of other sources) is laughing at 'conspiracy theories' that claim African Americans were injected with HIV.. While the HIV issue may be untrue, let's remember some facts about the past: The United States government injected people with plutonium.  The United States injected African Americans with syphilis..  So why is TIME magazine laughing at something--though perhaps untrue--that could be a logical conclusion given other famed injections from the past?

Greenland's glaciers are melting faster than anyone feared they would.. 

A sad end to a strange story.. you may recall a few weeks ago, the story of Walter Williams, 78, who woke up alive in a body bag in a morgue? Williams has now passed away--again.. This time, according to news reports on the death of Williams, his family is handling the death well, given the near death experience that made national headlines two weeks ago..

Duke porn star hits the stage at NYC strip club
School's out! Duke porn star hits the stage in New York City.. Belle Knox wiggles her way across the stage at the famed Hell's Kitchen strip club.. She chose the song CHERRY PIE.

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..
