Walt Disney Studios revealed that it was developing a brand-new Muppets feature film which it hopes to put into production this fall and then release sometime in 2011?
FYI: This is a completely different project than the one that was announced back at September of 2009 at the D23 EXPO. The Mouse House no longer plans on making “The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made.” Mind you, the film that Mickey is thinking of producing is currently untitled. But the word on the Web that this project is reportedly called “The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made.” More importantly, that this production will be directed by “Flight of the Conchords” creator James Bobin and feature a screenplay that’s written by Jason Segel & Nicholas Stoller.
for years now, we’ve been testing you. Aggressively. Time and again. Through a mind-boggling series of product releases that call to mind Europe’s inexorable slide into the Second World War—with each new development bringing something more unfathomable, disturbing, and unspeakably inhumane.
As one of the few people to own both devices, I have to ask: What if the naysayers are right? Should the fence-sitters who are still considering the iPad get a Virtual Boy instead? Would they be happier as early adopters or really, really extremely late adopters?
Because of the county’s actions, Clay missed the final months he should have had with his partner of 20 years. Compounding this tragedy, Clay has literally nothing left of the home he had shared with Harold or the life he was living up until the day that Harold fell, because he has been unable to recover any of his property
“As a grammatically conscientious person who frequents internet forums and YouTube, I have found it necessary to develop a few coping mechanisms. When someone types out “u” instead of “you,” instead of getting mad, I imagine them having only one finger on each hand and then their actions seem reasonable. If I only had one finger on each hand, I’d leave out unnecessary letters too!”—Hyperbole and a Half: The Alot is Better Than You at Everything
When people in Japan began eating seaweed with their rice and fish, they also ingested some bacteria from the ocean. And as these ocean bacteria passed through the intestine, they exchanged bits of genetic code with the gut bacteria.
…Unsurprisingly, bacteria in North American guts don’t have the genes to break down seaweed, which means the body can’t get calories — energy — from it. And these bacteria probably never will, even if sushi becomes a staple in North America, Hehemann says. That’s because these days, seaweed is roasted before it’s used to wrap a maki roll, so the bacteria are dead long before they reach your gut. And so are the bacteria in most foods in industrialized countries, Sonnenburg says. “We’re undergoing a tremendous experiment right now,” he says. “We’re consuming a lot of really highly processed calorie-dense food that’s incredibly sterile, so they lack the microbial reservoirs for these gene transfer events.” Sonnenburg says that could be a problem for humans because gut bacteria help us digest new foods, modulate our immune systems, and even ward off some diseases.
When war-hero-turned-handyman Kesuke Miyagi is found drained of blood, it becomes clear that the occult gang known as the Lost Boys are targeting the only individuals that can stop them from complete domination of America. It’s the perfect case for the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen—except that their government contact, Oscar Goldman, disbanded the team in 1979 after they defeated Mr. Han’s army of the living dead. Now, disgraced scientist Emmet Brown has to put together a new team to combat the growing threat of the Lost Boys and their leader, a newly resurrected vampire kingpin Tony Montana: Transportation specialist Jack Burton, ex-commando B.A. Baracus, tech wizard Angus MacGyver and the mysteriously powerful femme fatale known only as “Lisa.” But will Brown be able to stop the Lost Boys before time runs out?
