We've had real Spring weather here lately, and I'd really love to go to the Antique Rose Emporium this weekend to walk through the gardens, but on this weekend, so does everybody else in the state. Maybe next week. Tonight we're treating ourselves to Sherlock Holmes on DVD.

And Monday, we're going to see Stephen Hawking speak on campus. This will actually be the second time we've seen him give a presentation here.

YouTube: Fred Phelps and his hate group the Westboro Babtist Church Attack Gunn High School and are repelled by the sheer power of awesomeness.

From alfreda89: The Sex Scholar a Stanford Magazine article about Dr. Clelia Mosher: In other words, it was a sex survey. A Victorian sex survey. It is the earliest known study of its type, long preceding, for example, the 1947 and 1953 Kinsey Reports, whose oldest female respondents were born in the 1890s. The Mosher Survey recorded not only women's sexual habits and appetites, but also their thinking about spousal relationships, children and contraception. Perhaps, it hinted, Victorian women weren't so Victorian after all.

Noel Kerns' Photostream Making art with abandoned buildings and light.

From taraljc: Top Shelf Announces League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1988 I wish this wasn't an April Fool's Joke, because I would totally preorder it.

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?

I would buy that LoEG 1988 in a heartbeat. A HEARTBEAT.

Mr. T and MacGyver fighting vampires! That would be awesome!

I'd not only buy it for myself, I'd stock copies... Too bad we can't get 'em to make it Real. :-(

I could do without Mr. T, and I have no idea who Lisa is, but Doc Brown is great, and I like Kurt Russell, but he needs to be playing Snake Plisskin instead. Buffy would be good, but she's 90's, not 80's. Same problem with Mrs. Peel, she's 60's. The bionic couple were 70's. This just highlights how there's always been a dearth of good action/adventure female parts in TV/movies.

Lisa is from "Weird Science." I couldn't figure out who she was at first, either.

I pity the fool who can do without Mr. T! But you're right about the dearth of action heroines in the 80s... all I could come up with was Ellen Ripley, but she lived in the future and so would not work for this team.

Phelps and his gang o' hate showed up at my niece's school when they did The Laramie Project (as they always do), and half the town showed up with "Canton is no place for hate" t-shirts. :)

Good for Canton. :) That's about the only thing that seems to work, is making human walls between Phelps and his targets.

My husband, ComicbookMan, called and told me about the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: 1988 -- one of his customers came in and enthused about it, thought it was real! Looks like there are a lot of us who would really like to see this book come to be.
