Falling Skies

This looks like it might be worth a watch in 2011. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg and written by Saving Private Ryan‘s Robert Dodat, this is (another) alien invasion story. What’s with all the aliens in 2010/2011? I guess vampires and werewolves are out of fashion [bye-bye Twilight 🙂 ]

This does actually look quite cool and with Spielberg behind it, it should be epic. Staring Noah Wyle and Moon Bloodgood, Falling Skies arrives next summer on US network TNT, and the rest of the world sometime thereafter.

Kitten Cuteness

Too cold for little kitten? Too cute video of ickle kitten’s first experience of snow. Stay watching til the end for the biggest wuss kitten escape plan. Kittens + snow = Too much sugary goodness even for the biggest of Grinches. AAhhhhhhh! 🙂

Dolphin Intelligence

Everyone knows dolphins are intelligent, but here’s the proof. A bunch of dolphins in an aquarium in Baltimore have been studying themselves in a mirror showing indications that they recognise themselves – something only a handful of other animals can do, including ourselves. This clearly shows they can think and are sentient. Watch them swim around the mirror, they are able to realise they are seeing themselves instead of another of their species. They can track marks on their own bodies and even stick their tongues out and playfully have fun in the mirror. This is groundbreaking in that it shows how there are other highly intelligent mammals we are cohabitating with and ethical points arise. We really do need to be more aware of our choices towards other animals and show more respect to their well-being. More concern to fishing methods and captivity standards are among the few that spring to mind. Dolphins might be smiling at us for a reason… perhaps they know more than they are letting on, or are able to communicate verbally.

Brilliant Lost Dog Poster

You’ve got to appreciate the owners honesty on his lost dog poster. In all fairness, the dog does look as though he’s (pardon the pun) on meow meow.

By the sounds of it Klaus can hold his own and I’m sure he’ll find some bitch to shack up with this Christmas.

Film 2010

2010 has been a pretty damn good year for the movies. Inception was my standout favourite, but there were a hell of a lot of others that might have slipped your mind or passed you by completely. Watch this wee YouTube clip for a round-up of the year in 6 minutes and 3 seconds.

These crazy Japanese kids have WAY too much time on their hands!

More Oprah Reveals

I have recently been introduced to the big Oprah prize reveals (I know, where have I been?! We don’t really get her in the UK). I previously posted on Winfrey and thought I’d add this little mini-post to complement it. I would totally watch the episode illustrated by this gif!
