Marge Simpson is a Playboy Bunny

Yup, you read it right. Marge Simpson, mom to Bart and Homer's "bitter- half" is gracing the cover of Playboy Magazine's November issue.

So, what did Homer say to Marge when he saw her on the cover of Hugh Hefner's mag?

"Marge, you're as beautiful as Princess Leia and as smart as Yoda."

I guess the devil is in the blue hair, eh?

Donald Duck is a Gran'Pa

Yes, Donald Duck is really old. And boy, I am old.

When I was a kid, I used to watch him on black and white TV for hours. Aside from Bugs Bunny, the duck with his unintelligible gibberish and grouchy character is my favorite cartoon character.

He was your next door anti- hero; the quintessential loser but you've got to give it to him for he was always a fighter and you will not find the word "quit" in his limited vocabulary.

So, who cares if the grumpy old duck is 75 today?

He will always be the young, hot-tempered but unflappable duck to me.

Everybody in the house, say quack!

The Ballad of J.G. Ballard

"I would sum up my fear about the future in one word: boring. And that's my one fear: that everything has happened; nothing exciting or new or interesting is ever going to happen again... the future is just going to be a vast, conforming suburb of the soul. "

J.G. Ballard (1930- 2009)

Note: “Ballardian” adj) 1. of James Graham Ballard, the British novelist, or his works (2) resembling or suggestive of the conditions described in Ballard’s novels and stories, esp dystopian modernity, bleak man-made landscapes and the psychological effects of technological, social or environmental developments.”

True Stories of CSI

This book is a re-introduction and re- writing of the various crimes that have been featured on the top- rated show and is a good read by itself to have a general view of the said cases.

But if one considers himself a serious student of crimes even before the onset of the CSI phenomenon, then this book will offer nothing new that you have never read before.
