Peeps, here’s your numbers-beyond-what-you-can-dial Wednesday jam.
Whenever I see Adam Horovitz I think of the late 80s Lost Angels movie he was in with Donald Sutherland. You guys ever see that? It was little corny, soap opera-ish but definitely worth watching. I couldn’t find it on Netflix but you can get the DVD from Amazon for only $20.
While you’re out there checking out the renegade youth genre be sure to watch 1979’s Over the Edge with Matt Dillon and My Bodyguard from 1980. I always wanted a friend like Ricky Linderman.
Anyways, I need to put together a film crew and head over to Japan. North Aurora or South Elgin might be closer. Make some low budget robot/monster movies. Maybe just make them at home. Maybe this Saturday afternoon/evening. Who’s in?

Beginning at 5:30 a.m. EST on Jan. 31, a live feed of the Moon will be offered on NASA TV and NASA.gov/live. You can also follow at @NASAMoon. Weather permitting, the NASA TV broadcast will feature views from the varying vantage points of telescopes at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California; Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles; and the University of Arizona’s Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter Observatory.
“For the (continental) U.S., the viewing will be best in the West,” said Gordon Johnston, program executive and lunar blogger at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “Set your alarm early and go out and take a look.”
The Jan. 31 full moon is special for three reasons: it’s the third in a series of “supermoons,” when the Moon is closer to Earth in its orbit — known as perigee — and about 14 percent brighter than usual. It’s also the second full moon of the month, commonly known as a “blue moon.” The super blue moon will pass through Earth’s shadow to give viewers in the right location a total lunar eclipse. While the Moon is in the Earth’s shadow it will take on a reddish tint, known as a “blood moon.”
“Super Blue Blood Moon” sure is a mouthful. No matter how I rearrange the words, it never just rolls off the tongue.
