Friday Odds & Ends: The Blob (sorta), V, goats and the actual Big Bang

+ So, uh, Rob Zombie wants to remake "The Blob" but without so much of know...blob-iness. Personally, I hope he uses balloon animals instead. Improperly inflated, those things can be terrifying.

+ Well now, this is a little worrisome: production on ABC's remake of "V" has shut down for two weeks for some creative fine-tuning. The execs say the shut-down won't delay the show's Nov. 3 debut.

+ Check out this great video explanation of The Big Bang. It's really simple but visually quite effective and also, yes, mind-blowing. Kinda puts things in perspective...

+ I really, really want to see this movie and will cry small, sad tears if it turns out not to be as good as its trailer. It's called "The Men Who Stare at Goats" and it stars George Clooney and Ewan McGregor and it's about the U.S. military training soldiers to use their minds to fight...or, as Clooney's character calls it, training them to become Jedi. It already gets three stars from me just for having the word "goat" in the title:

Okay, terminal lurker here, but I have GOT to see the "goat" film - it looks wondrously amusing... And the Big Bang thingy was cosmically cool. Many thanks!
