The fourteenth season of Mister Roger's Neighborhood debuted in November 1983 with a five-episode arc titled "Conflict", a direct response to the ABC telefilm The Day After, which featured graphic nuclear-war imagery. This arc focused on the Neighborhood of Make-Believe where they almost go to war by jumping to conclusions. Due to both the episodes and news of the time involving war, the arc was pulled from regular rotation on April 5, 1996.

Full episodes have turned up and are now being presented on the yootoobs. The second episode has recently been uploaded, here's the running list to date:

The programmer of Atari's 1976 arcade game Starship 1 placed the first Easter egg in a video game, and then promptly forgot how to trigger it. Now, 40 years later and after a lot of experimenting, he remembered the right sequence of coin-dropping and control-whacking needed to set it off. HI RON!

One of the silliest movies of the 1970's with one quick-hitter bit of sketch comedy after another. Here's a segment where they parody a "science for better living" spot.

Senate lawmakers voted Thursday to repeal a historic set of rules aimed at protecting consumers' online data from their own Internet providers, in a move that could make it easier for broadband companies to sell and share their customers' usage information for advertising purposes.

Translation: So now your ISP wants to make more money by watching what you do in the privacy of your own home and sharing with others.

Chuck Barris, best known as host of the TV series "The Gong Show" and creator of "The Dating Game" and "The Newlywed Game," died Tuesday.
He was 87.
He passed away at his home in Palisades, New York, from natural causes, according to publicist Paul Shefrin.

As host of "The Gong Show," Barris introduced amateur performers to three celebrity judges, who could put a stop to terrible performances by striking the gong. Much like on "American Idol," awful performances became ratings smash hits. The TV show aired from 1976 to 1980.
While his shows were wildly popular, they were not a hit with critics. Barris was panned as the King of Schlock, Baron of Bad Taste and Ayatollah of Trasherola.
Apart from game shows, Barris found success as a writer. He penned six best-selling books and a 1962 pop song, "Palisades Park," which became a No. 3 hit in the US for Freddy Cannon.
Barris later wrote in his book "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind," that he worked as a CIA assassin while working in TV -- a claim denied by the agency. The book became a 2002 movie, directed by George Clooney. Sam Rockwell starred as Barris, and the cast included Julia Roberts, Drew Barrymore and Clooney.

Sesame Street has introduced Julia, a four-year-old character with autism.
Along with Julia, the show has also created a site for parents and children with information about autism and started the See Amazing in All Children campaign.

Julia has already appeared in Sesame Street books and online material, and the show recently shared clips of her interacting with other characters like Elmo and Abby.

Hmm. Does this go under the GAMES topic or the MUSIC topic? Whichever I choose, Dave will swap it.
Anyway, the guitarist for the rock group Queen, Dr. Brian May (astrophysicist) has announced that they will have a Queen themed version of the classic board game.

The cosmologist and physicist will leave the Earth on board Richard Branson's spaceship, he has said. Professor Hawking told Good Morning Britain that he'd never dreamed he'd be able to head into space. But "Richard Branson has offered me a seat on Virgin Galactic, and I said yes immediately."

While I happen to be a fan of fitness for the past 20 years or so and have put on some muscle, the goal is not quite about bodybuilding for me.
Still, there is some great information in this relatively long read.
If your goal is to lose weight, putting on muscle will build your metabolism (about an extra 50 calories per day for every pound of muscle gain). Sounds like nothing, but 5 pounds would mean 250 calories per day, even while sitting in traffic, sleeping, reading a magazine, etc.
If you want to just look better, again you can find some great information and advice.
If you just like some relatively entertaining reading, the article is worth it. Trust me, not a heavy lift.

Chuck Berry, who with his indelible guitar licks, brash self-confidence and memorable songs about cars, girls and wild dance parties did as much as anyone to define rock 'n' roll's potential and attitude in its early years, died on Saturday. He was 90.

A drifting man struggles to pull objects from the roiling sea below him and scrambles to keep the objects from slipping through his fingers. A stop-motion animation using textured and tactile materials, as well as personal imagery, that represents the progression of Alzheimer's disease. Inspired by my grandfather.

Jim Vorel at Paste Magazine really really likes MST3K, and has written up his definitive list of every episode, with commentary and clips (even a full ep or two), ranked from worst to first. While my pick for #1 came in second, it's a solid presentation of cult television at its finest.

These photos of ice-engulfed lighthouses are sure to send shivers down your spine. Formed under very specific circumstances, these pasty kraken emerge annually on the shoreline of Lake Michigan each winter. Their alluring formations are enough to entice the hot-weather-loving photographer, Tom Gill, to photograph their sculptural encasings every year.

Someone has been hiding empty A.1. steak sauce bottles throughout the Avon Lake Public Library and no one knows why. Dan Cotton, the library's page supervisor, said 28 of the 10-ounce bottles have turned up since he found the first one Jan. 11 hidden among the library's newspapers.
