Tuesday Newsday: 17th Edition (UPDATES)

ITEM: We've lost the great Edward Woodward, best known as The Equalizer, but rendered immortal for his role in The Wicker Man. Check out a memorial by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz). UPDATE: Loren Coleman has a nice obit as well.

ITEM: Don't forget the Leonid meteor showers, peaking in the early morning hours on Tuesday. The Leonids were a plot point on an episode of the short-lived Point Pleasant TV show, starring the radiant Eloah-Isis-Beth Harnois.

Jake Kotze's latest videos have some boggling Kirsten Dunst syncs, herself born in Point Pleasant. Harnois' next role is in Mars Needs Moms, based on the Berke Breathed children's book. Co-starring is Joan Cusack, sister of the Superstar.

UPDATE: The worldwide anti-Scientology campaign hits Australia now:
CLAIMS of Scientologists forcing members to have abortions and imprisoning and torturing others have been tabled during a speech by a federal MP.


  1. Oh man, Mars Needs Moms stars Seth Green, one of my favorite synch holes! Metaphorically speaking, of course...

  2. did you ever see the 1972 movie, The People? all these alien themes showing up lately got me thinking about that one. i loved it (and studied acting very briefly with the main kid in the movie).

    thanks for a great website!

  3. My apologies for this not being directly related, but wanted to share something I found on the MJ Movie Poster. Here's the link to it:


    I see "ISIS" in the title: ThIS IS It

    If I wouldn't have read this blog, I wouldn't have noticed it. Thanks Chris!


  4. Michael- DEFINITELY not your type ! =)

    Morgan- you win star of the day! That's an amazing find.

    Laura- Oh, there's plenty more where that came from...

  5. Christopher,

    I was wondering if you could point me to a particular direction/sources to read up on (a good place to start) so I can better understand your posts? I find them all incredibly interesting, but at times I'm finding things to be rather over my head.

    Laura :)

  6. Definitely a favorite. Between this film and Equus, the Shaffer brothers certainly had a knack with touching a nerve.

  7. Laura- the links are a good place to start with the individual posts- which is why they're there!
    Just keep reading- you'll catch up =)

  8. Thank you Christopher, I shall continue :)
