The SF board has been quiet...too quiet! What has everybody been up to?

Then I read this:

Quote:
Witness in Kenya blast blames bearded man

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) A witness wounded in a blast in downtown Nairobi says that the explosion occurred soon after a bearded man left a bag near her stall.

The police lineup is going to look a lot like the line to get into the Somerville on Presidents' Day Weekend! Wink


Let's not forget Metaluna:

I'm gonna have to check out the Somerville Theater mens room to see what people are writing on the walls about me. It sounds like it's a lot more interesting than my real life.

You can't expect me to remember something like that with all the guys I sleep with.

MIT Scientists Develop a Device for Needle-less Injections

Quote:
MIT scientists are developing a needle-less injection that could make getting a flu shot as painless as a mosquito bite.

The device shoots a tiny, high-pressure jet of medicine through the skin as fast as the speed of sound.

Sorry but Ken Tobey is for giant octopi who are shy of eight legs.  Kirk Douglas and James Mason would be better suited for fighting off giant squid.
 

I bring you peace. It may be the peace of plenty and content or the peace of unburied death.

Sorry Tobey is strictly a squid, super carrot, rhedosaurus type of hero and the odd lost missle, werewolf and sech.  Oh yea helicopter rides too.

The Best Trailer in theaters right now. It's for a Norwegian film called TURN ME ON, DAMMIT!. It's already come and gone in L.A. - but, for some reason, a theater in Santa Monica is still showing the trailer. It's terrific, possibly NSFW, and has Orson Welles singing!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tfu99WkSrs



Unfortunately, the movie's been Banned in 'Bama (big shock - in the SOUTH! No, way!). Article: http://www.al.com/entertainment/index.ssf/2012/06/tuscaloosa_arts_council_pulls....
