Out of the Blue

Good news everyone! ComicMix has a clip revealing that Futurama is renewed for another season (thanks Ant). The video, by voice actor Maurice LaMarche, also reveals we missed two special occasions on Sunday, as besides the first day of spring, it was William Shatner's 80th birthday, which also marked the 3rd Annual International Talk Like William Shatner Day. Better late than never, I plan on talking like Shat all day. I think I will also put the moves on any green alien chicks I encounter.

People dont seem to mind paying $8 for a 20cent bucket of popcorn, so not sure what the theaters are so afraid of.

I can't dig it up now, but there was an article I saw recently that I thought I posted a link to here that explained just how bad the popcorn sold in most theaters is. Most of it is popped in oil high in saturated fat, and thus even when un-"buttered" has incredibly high levels of calories, cholesterol, and sodium. Considering how most of it is stale and awful-tasting to start with, I think they have good reason to be concerned that sales of it would dip if people found out just how unhealthy it is.

Had a friend years ago that managed a big theater, and said it costs his company 1 cent to fill the largest pop they have....

I wouldn't be surprised. Coke syrup is extremely cheap and they can pack an awful lot of ice in those big cups.

And I always figured there was enough salt in the popcorn to last me a life time. A few handfuls and my lips feel like they've shriveled up into little strips of beef jerky.
