10 Cereals That Should Be Revived

21 Feb homer20cinnamon20dohnut

FROM PASTE MAGAZINE, 10 Discontinued Cereals That Deserve A Revival is a blast from a very sugary past. The writer is definitely a millennial – I’ll admit I had no idea there was a Homer’s Cinnamon Donut Cereal – because the list is missing many cereals from the 70’s, and 80’s, including a favorite of my childhood:



Bye-Bye Bao Bao

21 Feb

BAO BAO THE PANDA is saying “bye-bye” as she’s leaving the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.  today. She departed the zoo via a Fed Ex truck this morning and by now is on an airplane heading back to China.

Bye-bye, Bao Bao. You’ll be missed.



Watch “Crashing: Official Trailer (HBO)” on YouTube

20 Feb

MY NEW FAVORITE SERIES even though I’ve only seen one episode, the debut, last night. No surprise I’m already overboard without a life raft about it as the show is about two of my favorite things: relationship struggles and stand-up comedy.

Holmes brings an akward and painful humility to his character while remaining, at the core, funny. The struggles are real – and humorous. 

How To Turn Around A Jumbo Jet

19 Feb

I LOVE AIRPLANES AND AIR TRAVEL and I’ve often stared out the window at an airport and wondered about the carefully choreographed work done by the ground crew to turn around a jumbo jet. “Turnaround” meaning all the work that goes into getting a jet ready for it’s next flight. If you’ve ever wondered how it’s done check out this cool piece from The New York Times a few years back.

A Favorite Podcast: The Hilarious World of Depression

19 Feb

A SHOW ABOUT CLINICAL DEPRESSION…with laughs? Yes, and its great, and if you’ve dealt with depression you might find this very enlightening, and yes, funny.

The Hilarious World of Depression is “a series of frank, moving, and, yes, funny conversations with top comedians who have dealt with this disease, hosted by veteran humorist and public radio host John Moe. Join guests such as Maria Bamford, Paul F. Tompkins, Andy Richter, and Jen Kirkman to learn how they’ve dealt with depression and managed to laugh along the way. If you have not met the disease personally, it’s almost certain that someone you know has, whether it’s a friend, family member, colleague, or neighbor. Depression is a vicious cycle of solitude and stigma that leaves people miserable and sometimes dead.”

China Loves Movies

16 Feb

THE PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA love going to the movies: According to the Wall Street Journal 27 movie screens a day are being built in China, and the total number of screens there has now surpassed the U.S.

Which may be part of the reason Matt Damon is starring in “The Great Wall.” That, and because Damon is a big star there, apparently.
