Step away from the tweezers, people. Seems eyebrows are "in" this season. That's good news for the likes of me, who's never been much of a plucker anyway. During my early years at Turner, a girl I worked with had shaved her eyebrows on a dare (she said) and they never grew back. She had these drawn-on brows that looked like, well, drawn-on brows. Scared me away from tweezing for years! And while Groucho's a little over the top, I'm glad the surprised clown look is out of fashion. Brooke Shields must be thrilled!
Boy - who'd a thunk the JonBenet Ramsey murder would've ever been solved? How'd this guy get away with it for so long? Maybe solving the Black Dahlia murder and Judge Crater's disappearance (though unrelated, I believe - ) is just around the corner!
Wonder why they've remade The Wicker Man? The point being . . . ? Can Nicholas Cage do a better job than Edward Woodward. Pro'ly not.
Glad those World War I soldiers executed for desertion/cowardice have finally received an en masse pardon. Lots of good fiction revolves around the British and French executing troops suspected of trying to get out of running full tilt across a barren waste land straight into the arms of bullets, bombs, and deadly gas. A Very Long Engagement comes to mind. And the Inspector Rutledge mysteries by Charles Todd, as well.
The Guardian is reporting that Camus' The Stranger is on Bush's summer reading list. Uh. Yeah.
Go out and make some (good) news of your own!
