Escándalo!

Despite their wonderful and enticing promos, I admit that I’ve never actually watched ABC’s hit show Scandal. But I must say that, if it’s half as good as the takes of it done by Jimmy Kimmel Live, it might just be worth checking out! ;)

An Update on the ‘Cosmos’ Reboot!

Many of you will recall this excited bit of writing from my Cosmos – A Spacetime Odyssey! post of last July:

If you’re as big a fan of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage mini-series as I am, which is only the most widely watched PBS series in the world, then you’re probably well aware of the fact that an all new version, Cosmos – A Spacetime Odyssey, hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, has been in the works.

Well, while I haven’t been able to find an exact premiere date for the new show, they have released its first official trailer – an awesome spectacle in its own right!

Your Hump Day Nightmare…

Despite all its beauty, the change of seasons is not without its drawbacks as well – particularly for us “aging” folks with arthritis. In addition to the usual pains in my neck, shoulders and back, I’ve been living for the last month or so with a pain that feels like some idiot doctor broke a needle off in my right hip and decided to simply leave it there.

2nd Star To The Right, And Straight On Til Morning!

As one old enough to have watched the original Star Trek series on TV when they were new back in the 60s, not to mention every one of the spinoffs and movies except for Star Trek Into Darkness, I absolutely refuse to apologize for tearing up whenever I see this closing sequence from Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country…

More Marvel Madness!

Okay, my previous post included two clips from Monday night’s 3 hour presentation of Iron Man 2 on ABC. Well here’s a couple of things ABC and Marvel Entertainment used that presentation to promote:

Sunday Thoughts…

I’m not feeling quite up to doing my usual “big deal” type post today, so instead I’ll just talk a little about one of those “cosmic synchronicity” things, revolving around the number 50, that occurred to me just recently. As I’m sure most of you are aware, particularly those in African-American communities, the term “Five-O”…
