The list of people Bowie worked with or wrote songs for is enough to make any musician jealous: Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Freddie Mercury, Mott The Hoople, John Lennon, Brian Eno, Pete Townshend, Trent Reznor, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Glass, Robert Fripp, Jordan Rudess, Massive Attack, TV On The Radio, Goldie, BT, Placebo... the list goes on and on and on. Shit, he offered his song "Golden Years" to Elvis Presley, WHO DECLINED IT.
Don't forget singing "Little Drummer Boy" with Bing Crosby on the 1977 TV special "Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas."

The powerball is $1.3billion, an $806 million lump sum.
I was pretty surprised it rolled over again. I figured for sure there would be a winner, probably multiples winners on Saturday Night. I saw one article saying California normally sells about $1 million of Powerball tickets a day. But on Saturday they were selling $2.8 million an hour. However, I saw something saying that only about 75% of the possible combinations had been purchased.

The thing to remember is that while you might only have 1 in 292 million change of winning -- your chance of winning is just as big as any other ticket buyer. It definitely has reached crazy money territory.

They don't need a new story for HL3, TFA just proved that. (sorry, I couldn't resist)

Sure there are a few similar plot settings and ideas but TFA stands up just fine as it's own movie.
My problem isn't with the movie itself, my problem is with the movie makers failing to fulfill the potential of the movie. Thirty years they've had to think on this, and repeating a previous story was the best they could come up with. IMHO, that is a failure.

You guys sound like the SC fanboys protecting SC. Despite your denials it is effectively the same story.

Seeing as they apparently don't need to write new stories for Star Wars movies their potential is unlimited, right?

TFA becomes only the second film to earn $750m domestically. Avatar is the only other. It took Avatar 253 days in release to reach that mark, it took TFA 18 days.

Hmm, all the picks in the Playoff Pool seemed obvious -- likely means I have absolutely no idea what is going to happen.

If I lived in a NFL/MLB city (I don't) I would never vote to approve the use tax dollars to build them a stadium. Building stadiums for millionaires (if not billionaires) doesn't make the list of things that need to be done with tax dollars.

I'm fine either way Bats.

Weeks 12 and 13 we the killers for me. Seven people in each of those weeks got 11 picks or more correct. I was 9 and 8 in those weeks, if I had gone 11 and 11, I would have tied Pigeon. Oh well, wishes and fishes...

Blindfold the experts, give a collection of reds and whites, and they'll probably do a much better job than when you're deliberately deceiving them.
You mean, blindfold them so they can't deceive themselves. If someone gives me Pepsi and calls it Coke, I notice the difference. Perhaps the wine differences are more subtle, but if they are so subtle they are easily overlooked, then most people probably couldn't tell the difference anyway. Which is kind of the point, right?
