Sthar Warths

Thousands of “Star Wars” fans have suddenly developed a lisp after greeting each other on May the 4th.   BTW, the proper response to “May the 4th be with you” is “And altho wif you.”

The Mice & the Maze

I recently read about the old drug, Methylene Blue and how after extensive testing they discovered it was an aid in fighting Alzheimer’s disease and dementia which is awesome news.

It did get me to thinking on how they knew this.  Did a mouse have a worry that it was becoming forgetful and eventually started turning up in places it had once frequented for no apparent reason?  And then suddenly after being given the Methylene Blue, it remembered just where it was it had left that piece of cheese and had no issues working its way around a maze.

At least now they won’t have to take the mouse’s car keys away from him.

Festivals of Film

Some quick observations of the biggies in the film festival world from a small fry in the film world.

Cannes tends to remain fresher over time while Sundance can be over-baked.   Telluride is a trip while Toronto is…just Toronto.

Get it?

Checking In

After carefully typing in my sign on and password I slowly scroll through my menus and execute a couple of plugin updates.  I then peer around the corner and look up some old posts.  I glance through some of the “What doesn’t kill you…” postings and giggle to myself.  This is self-pleasing, but what the heck…I thought they were funny.

I write a new post entitled “Checking In” to, you know, let folks know that I was checking in.  And then I posted it.

That’s it…really.  Nothing else earth shattering or unique.  So you can stop reading now…

for today anyway.
