Musicals and westerns are way down. Horror and documentaries are up. Surely there's at least one Ph.D. thesis coming to explain this.
A spooky UFO story gets thoroughly debunked by the prosaic.
Yet another place where chronic inflammation could matter.
I've had a good time with mine.
And a darn good thing it is.
That, of course, won't stop them from still being made.

Article raises an interesting question--Why does baseball in the U.S. seem less important than it used to be?--and then expands the question to movies and music. But I don't think "moneyball" is the right answer.
Sure surprised me.
"A geoscientist and bikini model has gone viral removing a five foot alligator from a euthanized, 18-foot Burmese python"
Not something you see every day.
