Doctor Sleep

This just in.... Stephen King has (tentatively) announced that he is planning a SEQUEL to one of my top 10 favorite books of all time - The Shining. It might even be one of my top 5 but hands down it's the scariest book I've ever read. And not like 'scary gruesome' but scary as in a total mind-fug. Can I say that? I just did. If you haven't read it then you won't understand.

The last time I read it I could only read it outside in the Texas sun while floating in the middle of my in-laws' pool where no harm could come to me. It was not allowed indoors. Jack Torrance's mind is a scary place to be, you should try it sometime.

So the sequel - Doctor Sleep.

I admit that I have wondered what ever happened to young Danny Torrance. You know, the finger talking Mr. 'redrum, redrum' kid and one of the freakiest child actors EVER. Him and that little girl from Poltergeist. Doctor Sleep picks up 40 years later and centers on said freaky kid Danny Torrance who is living in upstate New York and working as an orderly for hospice. Yikes. I'm intrigued.

Sad to say the sequel is not a sure thing as Mr. King joked that he 'keeps talking about it so he won't have to write about it.' And I say: SHUT UP AND WRITE STEPHEN!!!

Get Lost

Yee-freakin-HAW ya'll. The count down is on and I need to get my ass in gear. I started out strong early in season 5 and then all recaps LOST came to a screeching halt around mid March. It seems like so long ago. I'd stopped recapping and for the first time in years I stopped KEEPING UP! ouch. Like, I couldn't tell you what happened in the last 3 episodes if my life depended on it. That's just sad. But now I'm back and ready to pick-it-to-death. Who's with me? Here's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna run back through the season and while I'd love to recap the remaining episodes, let's face it, probably not gonna happen. BUT, I will at least recap the season as a whole and I'm VERY excited for the refresher course.

But before I leave I ask you this:
What did one snowman say to the other?

Say it isn't Sosa

This is weird, right? These latest images of the Home Run Slugger have caused quite a stir ever since he debuted his 'new look' at the Latin Grammy's last week. Jaw dropping Michael Jackson speculations have been made but Sosa insists he owes his new creamy complexion to a face moisturizer and paparazzi flash bulbs. Huh.
