Starbucks just bought Clover. I've yet to try the coffee from one, since the only shop in town that has one makes such good espresso that I always go for that instead. Maybe it means we'll finally be able to get a good cup of coffee at four-bucks, though.

Neon John's Nuke Stuff. DO NOT miss the Three Mile Island Inn menus!

Walt Disney's Adventures In Music: Melody was one of the first stereoscopic animated cartoons. We'll probably never get to see it in 3D.

I know my posts have been a bit thin lately, sorry. Why don't you watch a movie or something?
