-- When the Harlem Shake costs you your job. A YouTube video shows eight miners wearing safety gear while performing the convulsive dance in the Agnew Gold Mine last week. The West Australian newspaper quoted a sacked worker who wouldn't give his name as saying up to 15 people were fired, including some who watched the performance but did not participate.
-- I've said here before I'm in no rush to see a Justice League movie be made. Do Superman, and let life move on. BUT, Warner wants 'their' superhero money like Marve/Disney's getting theirs with the Avengers. Sounds like Christopher Nolan's stepping in to oversee the entire project AND bringing Christian Bale with him. Wait, what? Can't we leave greatness alone!? Sure, Nolan's movies have all been brilliant but bringing together a project of this size, not in vision, but with bodies and egos and tying things together, seems like it goes against Nolan's very simply, gritty and world of realism. What. Ever.
-- Passover plagues getting a head start for the end of the month celebration. As if we hadn't already seen enough Biblical events this year, a plague of over 30 million locusts swarmed over Egypt's cities and farms just three weeks before Passover begins. But put your apocalyptic fears to rest. This happens every year as part of the locusts' natural migration pattern, though this year's swarm is especially large. That doesn't mean Egyptians aren't freaked the heck out by millions of nasty bugs buzzing through the air at all hours of day and night, possibly descending upon the agriculture fields where they're known to destroy entire crops, just like in the actual Passover story.
-- Back to the Dark Knight. Remember in the beginning of TDK there were inspired copy cat crime fighters? They're in real life too. Surveillance footage showed a portly figure wearing an ill-fitting costume including gloves, cape and mask, bringing a 27-year-old man to a police station in Bradford in northern England.
The suspect was arrested and charged with handling stolen goods and fraud-related offences, according to the force. But the costumed crime-fighter disappeared into the night without leaving his name.
-- Ralph Macchio looks much better at 51 than Pat Morita did. Yeah, a tweet made today by Roadside Attractions pointed out that Ralph Macchio is 51 ... and so was Noriyuki 'Pat' Morita, once upon a time, even though his infinite wit and wisdom made him seem like he was at least a thousand years old.
