What the Boss Likes – Some time killers for a Friday

While I’m sitting here listening to the soundtrack of Rocky Horror Picture Show (my husband introduced me to this when we first were dating), let me show you some cool links.

  1. Thanks for reminding me of Rocky Horror! Since I’ve seen it on stage (they make the whole audience sing and dance!) the music makes me go mad. 🙂

    Zooniverse is great! Looking for shellfish on the bottom of the sea can be really absorbing.

    • I saw it for the first time as the movie in college. I had heard about it and just sat with my jaw dropped through the whole thing. My husband has been to some of the more interactive screenings, not me. He’d make a good Riff Raff if he shaved his goatee and ‘stache.

    • that’s exactly what I thought when I saw them. 🙂 I love post-apocalyptic stuff and one of my favorites is the Planet of the Apes series from the 60s-70s. I can just see the mutants living in those tunnels.
