Lunar eclipse tonight!

Tonight, from 7pm to 7:51pm (Eastern standard time), I'll be checking out the last lunar eclipse until 2010. Hopefully it will take my mind off the final root canal appointment I have in a few hours.

Check it out during your local time zone tonight and watch out for werewolves.

UPDATE: Hmm, when I said "7pm to 7:51 pm" I must have been on crack because I didn't see anything then (and I was looking reeeeeally hard). Luckily a friend informed me of the real viewing time and we all got to see the eclipse around 9pm. Sadly, after staring at the creepy bloody moon for ten minutes, I failed to develop any enhanced superhuman powers. Pity...

"Look at me! I'm a Lady T.V.! HEY!! LOOK AT ME!!"

Introducing the latest in obnoxious technology and ubiquitous marketing: The Wearable Video Vest.

Notice that the models for the 'Video Vest' website are all women wearing outfits that vary from "friendly Gap employee" to teeny weeny bikini. Only one of the leering spectators appears to be making eye contact, probably practicing a 'boob tube' joke in his head.

I know what you're thinking: "For Pete's sake, that thing looks too "Videodrome meets Teletubbies" for my taste! Isn't there a slimmer, more fashionable version for everyday douchebags like myself?"
