TESLA LIVES…

I saw this piece in the WSJ and had to post a tune, lol:

Decades after he died penniless, Nikola Tesla is elbowing aside his old adversary Thomas Edison in the pantheon of geek gods.

…Tesla has been rediscovered by technophiles, including Google Inc. co-founder Larry Page, who frequently cites him as an early inspiration. And Teslamania is going increasingly mainstream….

Spartacus: Blood and Sand – Vengeance promo – Premieres Jan 22 on Starz

I am pretty psyched for this one. Our previous posts on Spartacus: Blood and Sand here. It has already been renewed for a second season…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

SciFiWire has more inside scoop including news Lucy bares all:

Battlestar Galactica‘s Lucy Lawless finally bares it all for her role as Lucretia, the rapacious wife of John Hannah’s Batiatus, in Starz’s upcoming Spartacus: Blood and Sand, and she’s not shy about it. At all.

“It’s a way of telling the audience, ‘You ain’t in Kansas anymore,'” Lawless said in a conference call Wednesday. “It certainly jolts you into a new reality where people had completely different relationships to their bodies and other human beings. Slavery, different attitudes to sexuality, prostitution, you name it. They thought of things differently, but essentially human beings haven’t evolved so very much, so you’re still able to relate to them.”

Scott Brown Boston Globe Op-Ed: Taking on the one party rule and Beacon Hill bosses…

Great Op-Ed by Scott in the Globe:

I didn’t grow up with all the advantages in life. My mom was on welfare for a time, but I had the support of a loving family and good friends and neighbors. I don’t have all the advantages in this race either, and that’s fine by me. Being the underdog has taught me to work harder, and to appreciate the opportunities of our state and our country.

I’m running because more of our people are unemployed today than ever before. Public debt has reached $12 trillion and counting, and Washington politicians want to borrow trillions more. Terrorists want to strike our country again, and they will do so if we let down our guard. We have fighting forces in two theaters of war, and those men and women need our support.

… As this special election draws to a close, the enthusiasm from everyday citizens has been remarkable. To those who have lost faith in their elected leaders, I say: Don’t lose heart. One-party dominance in our state has led to bad decisions and a culture of corruption, but we can restore people’s faith by restoring balance to our political system.

They call me a long shot. But I’m betting that a new day is coming in Massachusetts. I am running in the name of all independent-thinking citizens, whether they are Democrats, Republicans, or unenrolled, to take on one-party rule, and the Beacon Hill bosses, and their machine, and their candidate. With your help, I intend to win.

Scott Brown is a Republican state senator from Wrentham.
