Today marks the 105th birthday of the first man ever to play everybody’s favorite Time Lord. Hartnell played the Doctor from 1966 to 1969. He died in 1975 (during the era of the Fourth Doctor) at the age of 67.

WalMart: The Evil Empire

January 4, 2013 Leave a comment

People—myself included—refer to WalMart as the “evil Empire” for a variety of reasons, but it never occurred to me that WalMart might actually recognize itself as such. For years it used a star as its logo, but that star was replaced on June 30, 2008. It’s taken me until now, however, to see the connection.

Happy birthday, J.R.R. Tolkien!

The legendary English writer, poet, linguist, and Oxford university professor, best known as the creator of Middle Earth and the author of many books about its inhabitants—including the The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion—was born 121 years ago today in Bloemfontein, South Africa. Incidentally, today is also my sister’s birthday, but she’s not nearly as famous.
