News of the Day -- Friday, June 13

+ Unicorns, baby! We got unicorns in the news. Sadly, none of them are ridden by Neil Patrick Harris. No, this is a deer with a honkin' huge horn on his forehead. The other deer just look at him and kinda point their hooves at his forehead and mutter, "Dude, you got something...right there...on your...nevermind."

+ Apparently, the sea life's been whoring it up again in Georgia. This time, it's an unmarried male sea dragon announcing his pregnancy. Although his mother is very disappointed in him, having reminded him that other sea dragons "will never buy the cow if they get the milk for free," conservationists are pretty happy since these dudes are highly endangered. Way to go, McTrampy the Sea Dragon!

+ Moleskines and iPod Touches: put 'em together for an extra dollop of coolness. Everything's better with Moleskine! (TM me)

+ A disturbing rumor about the new "Office" sequel. Unless you're a huge Rashida Jones fan, in which case let me amend that to say, "Hey, great news about the new 'Office' sequel!"

+ If anybody goes to see "The Incredible Hulk" or "The Happening" this weekend, let me know how it is. I'm trying to decide if I should spend my hard-earned coin on either of them or just go see "Sex and the City" sarcastically instead.

Yeah put me in the category of not thrilled with the Rashida rumor.

The great thing about the unicorn story is that they manage to work narwhals into it.

Whoever thought of the name narwhal should get some sort of an award. It's just a great word, made even greater by its inclusion in B-52s songs and now, stories about unicorns.

I saw Incredible Hulk in a sneak preview on Monday night. It was definitely worth seeing. Marvel has done a fantastic job lately with their movies, and I am excited to see more of them!

I have heard nothing but horrible things about The Happening, all from well-known Shyamalan fans. Basically, it's needlessly gory and lacking in story. :(

In other news, I will happily shell out money to see Edward Norton rip his shirt off in a fit of Hulk-induced rage. :)
