Researchers at Oregon State University have created and patented a new seaweed.
Uh-huh. Sooooo...what's the big deal?
It just so happens that what looks like translucent red lettuce tastes like bacon when you fry it. It's easy to grow, and it has twice the nutritional value of kale. It's full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, protein...
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Whatever. You say it tastes like bacon?
Here's the sneak peek of Episode VII that debuted at this year's Comic-Con in San diego. The most exciting aspect for me is to see this new production trying to remain true to the originals by, as Mark Hamill notes, "keeping one foot in the predigital world."
You've never heard of the local public access show Only in Monroe. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that most people in Monroe County, MI, have never heard of it. But that didn't stop Stephen Colbert from stopping by to guest-host the entire 40-minute show. Featured are interviews with the show's regular hosts, Kaye Lani Rae Rafko Wilson and Michelle Baumann, and Michigan rapper Marshall Mathers. (Hey, wait. Isn't that...?)
Spencer Butler and Grant Krause wanted to break in their new GoPro camera by going rock climbing. On their way back home, they spotted smoke coming from a nearby apartment building and thought they could get some interesting footage of firefighters in action. But when they realized that firefighters were not yet on the scene, they began going door to door checking to see if anyone was still in the building. The GoPro caught it all. They ended up saving three dogs, and no one was hurt in the blaze.
I couldn't help but be reminded of this Foo Fighters music video:
If you're pressed for time but still want to get through all six Star Wars movies once more before Episode VII comes out, you may try watching all six at the same time. And I don't mean watching them simultaneously in six separate videos; I mean watching all of them layered on top of each other in one video. You are about to experience a great disturbance in the Force.
