I recently watched "The Late Great Planet Earth" on youTube.  Narrated by Orson Welles, it was the culmination of a lot of 70s Armageddon hysteria.  Here's a choice quote (from imdb):

Welles: "Scientists are now warning us of terrible dangers from outer space in 1982. In that year, Jupiter and all the other planets will be aligned on the same side of the sun."

Poor Orson.  Reduced to this sort of sensationalism.  And touting Paul Masson wine (see some of his commercials, plus outtakes, online).

The movie makes a decent drinking game.  Take a shot every time "prophecy" is mentioned.  And try not to giggle.  The final minutes are an orgy of thermonuclear footage.  Turn up the subwoofer!

Watering the roses after dark, since the California sun would evaporate the water.  It's dark, so I need a flashlight.  Batteries dead.  Started using "flashlight" mode on the phone, but that battery is also low.  So I'm standing there with a tablet in flashlight mode.  I feel like an idiot.  But I'm not getting poked by any of the thorns!

Mold will grow if you water in the evening, but parks do it and they are fine. The better time around 5am.

At the doctor's office: "We just need to verify some of your personal data to see if it has changed since your last visit.  Date of Birth?"

Me: "No, my date of birth has not changed"

So KFC, which was originally Kentucky Fried Chicken, is now rebranding itself back to Kentucky Fried Chicken.  Apparently their trademark police haven't made it across the Atlantic, where one can enjoy Euro Fried Chicken (yes, it is an actual chain).

I've really enjoyed Popeye's Fried Chicken for the last few decades.  Is there any reason to try the new Kentucky?

Give me Popeye's three piece Spicy Dark, the Cajun Rice and a coleslaw please.  Fine dining.

I tried to launch iTunes while the App Store was updating it, and received the following inscrutable error panel.

I grew up in Louisiana, and despite a lot of weird politics in the state, there are occasional gems.  Bobby Jindal rejects license-plate cameras.  A real pro-privacy move!
LPRs "create large pools of information belonging to law abiding citizens."

I am shocked, SHOCKED, to learn that celebrity PR companies are covertly editing Wikipedia pages ...

I am willing to bet that celebrities don't personally post their tweets, but I need to gather more evidence.
Many Hollywood public relations firms have pledged to observe Wikipedia’s policies against covert editing. But one firm continued to change entries.
