Has anyone not seen Stranger Things? I’d recommend it.

Does anyone know why the shark from Jaws was called Bruce on-set? Let us know here at delicate adventures! Please keep joke questions to a minimum.

Never having seen Zardoz, I can only guess that it was a smash hit. Who wouldn’t want to see Sean Connery in a diaper again? I say again because he wore hot pants for a good part of Thunderball.

Today in 1977, Star Wars was first released! In honor of this auspicious day, I wanted to find a Star Wars character of whom I had not yet made an egg. Our answer comes in the form of Jek “Red 6” Porkins, also known as the first casualty on the Death Star run. You may also remember him as Major Eaton from Raiders of the Lost Ark. He was the guy who said “Top. Men.”

Ian Curtis

In almost every picture of Ian Curtis, he looks very tired, punctuated by a picture of him shooting invisible lasers out of his eyes.

(Apologies again for the lateness of this egg)

If you’re going to have sculpture made of your likeness, look to Yuri Gagarin’s. The sculptors apparently combined Superman and art deco styles into monument that’s super cool, yet astonishingly tasteful. Soviet sculpture in the 60s is where it’s at.

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss

As child, I read very little of Dr. Seuss’s catalogue. The one Seuss been we did read in the Glanting household is Green Eggs and Ham. I’m not sure, but I think reading this book may have been a ploy by my folks to get the Glanting boys to eat more things. But, gentle reader, you’ll be happy to know that my brother and I stayed the course and remained adamantly against new foods and experiences despite being exposed to Seuss’s gastronomic propaganda.
