It's been announced that the popular TV show Gilligan's Island will be made as a movie in the coming year. I watched many of the episodes from the original TV show. Its hard to imagine anyone other than Bob Denver as Gilligan.
A French speaking radio station in Canada had a guest on their morning show. And when you watch the video and hear the youngster sing, you'll think twice about wondering if ELVIS has been reincarnated...
I was one of many sitting here at my desk watching the live stream on my computer. I was in awe of what I was seeing. The highest free fall ever attempted. When the door opened and Felix stood up, and then jumped out. Watching it happen, I sat there intently hoping for the best. Now comes a documentary on the backstory of the jump. The preparation and behind the scenes of the countless amount of people who were a part of this historic jump.
This doesn't happen often. It won't happen for a VERY long time. The American holiday Thanksgiving is the same day as the first day of the Jewish holiday Hanukkah. Many people are calling it Thanksgivikkuh. Do you know anyone celebrating both?
The folks of Foot Locker have released a tv commercial which is really good. It's clever, it's funny, and it's brilliant. It features Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, and even Dennis Rodman. Definately worthy of the Super Bowl.
You hear about artists in police departments that can look at pictures of a person when they were young and use techniques to almost accurately draw a pic of what the person would look like years older. A new article has come out with some amazing depictions of famous musicians that passed and what they would look like today. John Lennon, Elvis, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Bob Marley and more.
Ok, we all know the importance of brushing your teeth with toothpaste to help prevent cavities and other problems associated with bad teeth. BUT, did you know toothpaste is a great product for other uses. Apparently, its a great household item that can be used to clean everything from carpets to CD's to even using it as a detergent to help rid your clothes of stains.
Most of us has been to see the Harlem Globetrotters. Whether you were a young kid, or a parent taking their kids to see them, its always a good and magical time. The players are incredible athletes who can do amazing dribbling, passing and shooting exhibitions. They also have fun messing with the other players, the refs, and even the audience when they throw a bucket of 'water'. Back to the players being amazing basketball players, yesterday was Guinness World Record Day. A rookie member of the Harlem Globetrotters attempted to break a record.
November 11th is a day that we honor those who have served and those who are currently serving in our nations military. I have many family members that served and are currently and many friends as well. THANK YOU for your service and I truly appreciate your sacrifice of being away from family and friends when serving.
The inner sci-fi geek in me is giddy. I am a huge fan of anything space related and aliens. I was a big fan of the tv miniseries V, the most recent V, all four Star Trek tv series and their respective movies and the recent reboots and who wasn't a fan of STAR WARS... And now, they've announced the date of release for the next and latest installment of the Star Wars movies.
At one time back in the 70's, the Houston Astrodome was a monster indoor facility used by the Houston Oilers and Houston Astros. Back then, there were no other domed stadiums. It was often referred to as the '8th Wonder of the World'. Now, in today's world, its a relic and forgotten structure next to the now current Reliant Stadium in Houston. Today is voting day, and the city of Houston is voting whether to have it demolished. I had MANY memories inside the Astrodome and would hate to see it go.
