So I was watching the director's commentary for Captain Marvel over the weekend, and one of the directors mentioned that the burning piano that briefly flashes onscreen near the beginning has an interesting history, and that I should look it up. So, I did. Turns out it's a poignant WW2 Air Force tradition, to honor pilots that have 'flown west'. Great little read on it and the pilot it was included in the film for over at

The BBC reported this several months ago but I just stumbled across it. This is fantastic news and hope for medical breakthroughs like this springs eternal.

The Easy Rider himself, Peter Fonda, was pushing 80 when he passed away early Friday morning - it was respiratory failure due to lung cancer that took him out. But that gamechanging 1969 movie made him immortal, freezing him in time as Wyatt, the stoned biker chasing an elusive freedom.

This black hole is huge, even by cosmological standards. The team say at a conservative estimate, it is 40 billion times more massive than the sun. By comparison, the black hole at the center of the Milky Way, Sagittarius A*, is only 4 million times more massive than the sun.

Residents living in a Virginia neighborhood woke up to find free televisions on their doorsteps. It sounds like a great gift until you see the older box sets left at the homes. Doorbell surveillance cameras captured the man with a TV set over his head, laying an older set down on someone's front porch and just walking off. Outdated boxes were found at more than 50 homes.

When Jamie Bisceglia first put an octopus on her face, she says it felt "squishy" and "fun." Then, the freshly captured mollusk chomped down.

I just stumbled across this sad news that one of the NFL's greatest and iconic deep threats at split end died last week. At the age of 71 and found dead in a hotel room. The initial review is that he simply died of natural causes.
Oh, did you want to see him in his prime? I still get goose bumps listening to The Autumn Wind and John Facenda.

The world's most popular fruit is facing extinction, and scientists are racing to use gene-editing to save it. To succeed, they'll need to overcome an even bigger problem: opposition to GMO crops.

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time?

I happen to have little sympathy for criminals but at the same time, I lack compassion for the flaming asses who treat them inhumanely.

Understand going into this that I flat-out abhor infantized versions of popular characters - Muppet Babies and Tiny Toons and even Littlekenny fill me with irrational anger that makes anything of that nature an automatic non-starter in my realm of interest. They're so hyper-pc and forward-apologetic and homogeneously cute, it makes me want to barf broken gin bottles at the sun.

That being said, I just blew an entire morning reading through JL8, a little kidified take on DC's Justice League, and enjoyed it considerably. Color me baffled, but I was sad when it ran out of pages. Fortunately, it's a long-term ongoing project and new strips do continue to be added at irregular intervals.

I bet you cannot even find a drive-in these days. When I lived in California, the closest one was in Sacramento, a good two hour drive. Call it a drive-out, not in.

The one on state highway 303 in Rockland County, NY? It's now a flea market.

Take a trip down memory lane and relive the glory of catching a movie on the cheap during a hot summer night while listening to the soundtrack through a tinny and cracking speaker.
