I am super excited!
Not only did my TV boyfriend Dr. Gregory House return to prime-time this past week but apparently Heroes premieres on Monday! Yay for non-reality television!The Huffington Post published this article about the new season that I did not read because I don’t want to know anything ahead of time.
In other entertainment, Issabella Rosselini stars in Green Porno, a documentary about the amorous escapades of insects. You know how I love buggy macro, so I will have to check this out. Lucky for me, it is available for viewing online, as I don’t get fancy cable channels like Sundance… Also available on the website is a quiz to determine what kind of green porno star you are. I haven’t taken it yet, let me know your results if you do.
I stopped buying books a while ago- more a monetary things than a paper thing- but my library doesn’t have all the eco-books I want to read. EcoBrain conveniently offers a good variety of these titles in a downloadable format, and a weekly free download. This week you can read Mary Appelhof’s Worms Eat My Garbage, the “definitive guide to vermicomposting”, for free! (via Green Daily)
How sexy is this car? The Tesla Roadster, an all-electric vehicle for the rich and fabulous.
I’m not going to dwell on the ethics of marketing electric cars specifically to the wealthy, rather than building more cars that are priced for the average citizen. I suppose it’s a good argument that “crazy rich people pay top dollar for tiny, blazingly fast and impractical cars every day. So really…why not make them green too?”.
Martha Stewart now has a blog (of course, because there is NOTHING that Martha does not do) and has invited bloggers to comment and link, and she will feature some on The Martha Blog. Now, I can’t imagine anything more frightening than Martha Stewart reading my blog, but loads of others don’t seem to find the prospect so scary. Go ahead, I dare you, invite Martha to your blog…
Like many others, I have been slacking somewhat on the blogging, and like this woman, I am blaming the “Sarah Plain effect”. Politics are definitely at the forefront of my interest at the moment, as they should be, I think; but I will do my best to not allow the “political cacophony” drown out everything else I am passionate about.
And finally, today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
Umm…Aaarrr. You scurvy knave, and whatnot. (Have a good weekend!)
