What You Missed Over the Weekend
What could arguably be the worst day of the week can now be very fun for you and for us – introducing CafePress’s new “Case of the Mondays” (The great Office Space reference being put to good use), which will be a delicious mouthful of what happened over the weekend. Did you go check out that awesome movie that was playing this weekend (*ahem, Inception *cough cough)? Take a hike and have a picnic outside? We’ll be sharing the latest in pop culture, entertainment and news (and even some off-the-beaten-path stuff too). If we miss anything you think is worth mentioning, please do share! And onward we go…
- Comic-Con 2010 in San Diego this past weekend brought out the geek, the unique and Will Ferrel with a giant blueberry on his head (and I have a feeling his wasn’t the most interesting costume of them all). But there were some great sneak peeks at upcoming new movies, like Tron, The Avengers and the Green Lantern, as well as news about J.J. Abrams’ super secret Super 8 (I have a feeling this will be epic). What are you the most excited about seeing come out?
- AMC delivered Mad Men season 4 last night after a long-awaited arrival. And delivered it did. The premiere conveyed the main characters in new, strange situations, such as Don Draper living alone in a Manhattan apartment going on blind dates and a staged fight over a ham to boost a media budget from a client (Ask Peggy about that one). What are you thoughts on the season opener, home run? Strike out? And what do you think you can expect for upcoming episodes?
- The Kings of Leon got pooped on by pigeons so much at a concert this weekend in St. Louis, they canceled their show after just three songs. Getting pooped on is supposed to be good luck, but in this case I’d say nay. The Verizon Amphitheater in St. Louis is supposedly notorious for their pigeons letting loose that they warn performers beforehand about the problem.
- Green energy is hiding in the pond: a San Diego laboratory is looking into using algae as a form of fuel. According to the New York Times article, “algae are attracting attention because the strains can potentially produce 10 or more times more fuel per acre than the corn used to make ethanol or the soybeans used to make biodiesel.” That sounds awesome, because there is a lot of algae out there getting a free pass to just hang around all day long and not do anything.
What did you catch over the weekend?
