On a Lighter Note, Random crap

If you want to see a great movie, check out Pressburger and Powell's The Red Shoes (1948). Simply put, it's the best movie about ballet ever. (Even better than White Knights.) It's loosely based on the short story by Hans Christian Andersen. For a guy that died in 1875, he has a rather extensive writer filmography, don't you think?
Here's a less profilic filmwriter, but he's been around for a tad bit longer. Notice his trademark is dactylic hexameter verse and please add estate info if you can!

I like to click that "Go To Next Blog" randomizer button, but these spam bloggers are starting to really annoy me.

And finally, over on PolySciFi, Thason posted about TV theme songs a while back. This got me interested in looking up some TV stuff and how the run of 167 (so far) TV shows exist in the mind of autistic Tommy Westphal, who was the son of a Dr. on St. Elsewhere. You can read more about this at your local library or in the comfort of your own browser at: Homicide: Life on the Street Crossovers & A Multiverse Explored. One thing to note from all this are some of the amazing crossovers:
Not only did Arnold and Mr. Drummond considering purchasing the Banks' family home on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, but so did George and Weezie Jefferson!
Both Colonel Klink and Lurch appeared on Batman.
Newhart was a figment, but this show's run was a dream by Newhart, so it was actually a double figment (as were all shows connected to it).
Although NBC has the two central shows, ABC seems to be the big crossover whore with The Drew Carey Show in particular being connected to an inordinate amount of shows.
