The Walt Disney Co. recently bought Lucasfilms from George Lucas for $4.05 billion (Yahoo! as in the site of the article, not my reaction). Some people were thrilled since they’ve been lambasting George Lucas for everything he’s done post the original Star Wars Trilogy. Others thought there was a great disturbance in the force.
We’ll have to see how it’ll all turn out with time, but I can tell you the first good thing that has come of the transaction is the Disney-Star Wars mash-ups immediately found in the Twitterverse (#DisneyStarWars hash tag) and other places.
Some of the best ones I’ve seen are below, but I want to hear more so if you’ve heard of others, or came up with one of your own, please do share by leaving a comment! View full article »
Earth from Space is by far the best video I have ever seen about the Earth. The videography is absolutely stunning, but the information presented also rivals that. See how natural forces work on Earth, on its own and, of course, together. You really get a sense of how everything influences everything else. There’s a TON of information to learn, then contemplate consequences after that. Headache medication makers should really sponsor these awesome documentaries!
Below is the entire documentary. You can watch it in HD if you have the bandwidth and want to see it in all its glory. Do that by clicking on the YouTube icon near the bottom left corner.

If you know the song, quickly think what’s the best version you’ve ever heard. If it isn’t the one done by Louis Armstrong and Danny Kaye like the title of this post, have a listen in the video below and tell me you’ve heard a better version.
No. Seriously. Do tell me in the comments at the bottom if you like another version better. I’d love to hear it. Whether I agree or not isn’t the point, really. I want to hear all the variations of that tune. But right now, this one is far above the rest in my opinion, and I am posting it to share it with you in case you haven’t heard it.
