Pondering the Imponderable

I know this isn't standard Haus fare, but hey. Disney is releasing season one of the Muppet Show on DVD today. I enjoyed that show quite a bit back in my younger days. I've a feeling my kids will like it too. Wal-Mart (no affiliation) and others have screaming deals on it. The set includes a video made to pitch the show to CBS execs and one of the two pilot episodes. Previously the show has been available piecemeal. According to one source, Disney was so happy with the pre-orders that they plan on releasing the remaining four seasons the same way.

The Master comments: I remember watching that show all the time. Animal just made me laugh like mad. Go figure :-)

J.t.Qbe comments: Oh yeah, we watched that show every Saturday night. It was good stuff. My wife has just picked up the DVD with the Mark Hamill episode on ebay.

Also released today is Kung Fu Hustle, my pick for movie of the year. Ok, it's the only movie I've seen this year, and the only one I'm likely to see. It's a great action/kung-fu movie with great effects and surprises. If you have any interest in action and/or kung-fu movies, you've probably already seen it--if not, you should.

Discovery Returns

At 7:12 am CST this morning, Space Shuttle Discovery completed it's re-entry glide into Edwards Air Force Base, California, with a (from my non-pilot's perspective) perfect landing. This was a great thing to watch, especially since for some strange reason I have never seen a shuttle landing myself. That was an incredible relief to see Discovery and her crew home safe.

We actually prepared to get up at 3:30 am this morning to watch the shuttle landing. Eeyore did get up and check it, and then told me it was cancelled. Those weenies :-) I expect a landing dang it. 4:07 am will be a bit easier tomorrow.

It's weird to see all the deaths of people I know lately. The announcement on Peter Jennings last night was a real shocker. He was the news man for as long as I can remember. I get all my news via CNN online now, but it's still weird knowing he's gone, even if he did retire in April.
