Week 05.27.12 – Regular readers of this blog are well aware that there hasn’t been a “Head-turning Headlines” post in two weeks, and I apologize for that. I was suffering from SKS. If you read this past Wednesday’s post you know what that is. If not, read more about SKS here, after you’ve read this post of course.
Anyone searching the Internet this week or watching the news knows that the recent stories in the headlines sound a lot more like trailers for a Hollywood blockbuster film than everyday news reports. For instance, there are “zombie” stories about crazed people eating other people, and then there’s the one about the insect bite (Chagas Disease) that can make your heart explode if you’re infected. What the hell going on? You can read about both stories in the “Life in General” section. A few posts back I put up a story about Andre 3000 shooting a Jimi Hendrix biopic. Check out a few of the photos of the rapper-turned-actor in costume in the “Entertainment” section.
A few of these articles took place prior to last week, but I thought they were still interesting and wanted to share them with you anyway. Leave me a message and let me know what you think.
