John Malkovich is thumbing a ride on "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," a Disney adaptation of the Douglas Adams novel. Malkovich will play a religious cult leader called Humma Kavula, created by the late author especially for the long-gestating film.

April 27 - The Weather Underground
During the late 1960s and early 1970s, several hundred young women and men tried to spark a socialist revolution. The Weathermen waged a low-level war against the U.S. government: bombing the Capitol building, breaking Timothy Leary out of prison and evading one of the largest FBI manhunts in history. The Weathermen were a surviving faction of the SDS. (Where are the Weathermen now?) [link]

{Past Re-visited}
I recall Cliff Potts came by the university in his converted old bread truck and parked in front of the Student Center where all us 'ne'er do wells' were lounging. He set up a table with SDS pamphlets and we all signed up and discussed Nixon's pending visit to the campus and talked to us about the ROTC program and how to take over that building in protest of Vietnam. Within a year I was onboard with NOW, SDS, and for fun, Montrose, a performance troupe of drama and art majors and assorted strays named for the historic Montrose building that now housed many university students (read: freaks). I was eighteen and felt electrically plugged in, challenged and scared.

The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror VIII


It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
