Sunday Burst of Weirdness

Oddities abound!!!

:: Everybody remembers the theme song from Dallas, right? And everybody remembers the opening credits to the show, right? The way they were presented? Well, if not, here's a refresher:

One of the best teevee theme tunes ever, in my opinion.

But anyway: what if, say, Star Wars had been done this way?

Or...Star Trek: The Next Generation?

Would they have done a "Who shot Darth Vader?" thing?

:: Lynn links the latest whacko theory: Mother Teresa was a man. (Of course, the story is dated April 1...and it links, for "further information", a story at The Onion, so....)

:: As dumb as I find the fighting in hockey to be, this video made me laugh a lot, for some reason. Maybe it's because there's something inherently funny about watching goalies, with all the extra crap they have to wear, going at it...combined with the slippery ice...I dunno, but I laughed. And two of these involve Sabre goalies!

:: It turns out that getting married in the Electronic Age can have some potentially unpleasant consequences. I wish I could help, but I don't know either Bruce Sterling or his wife. But seriously -- really?

My vote for top T.V. theme song goes to Hawaii 5-0.

In a weird way I also liked the jazzy feeling of the Barney Miller song.
