Morning Roundup: Turns Out the Moon Was Adopted. Don’t Tell It.

Ocean currents visualized

This is a picture of visualized ocean currents over the course of several years. Van Gogh was right!

You can watch a time-lapse video of our massive, writhing planet down below. Here’s some other stuff we want to show you:

Highlights below include:

  1. The Willow cartoon that never was.
  2. Age catching up with Disney princesses
  3. Tim Burton explaining why he mostly ignored the Dark Shadows TV show

Every day Stubby the Rocket jets around the internet looking for links of interest. When Stubby finds these links, they get put in our handy Links of Interest section and sometimes on our Twitter and Facebook! Sometimes Stubby creates an extra section in Morning Roundup for the stuff Stubby knows you crave. Here’s today’s selection:


Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Tor.com and knows the moon is ours because it, well, that would be telling.

It's Dynamite Comics who are being told to stop, not IDW.

Turns out we’re not so sure now whether the moon is ours or not.
Eh? The linked article states that the hypothesis that the moon was NOT formed from the Earth has been largely discredited. So it would be more accurate to state that "we're pretty sure now that the moon is ours," although we still don't understand how it was formed. In other words, the article is discrediting the giant impact hypothesis, which would indicate that the moon is NOT adopted.

Spoiler warning on the "Hunger Games Racism" thing would've been nice. Haven't seen the film yet, but now I know a character that dies.

Given Tim Burton's decidedly — um — uneven output, I'll happily ignore his opinion on what is awful and what isn't, and substitute my own:

I'm going to go out on a very short limb and predict — nay, state categorically — that his take on Dark Shadows is going to be awful.

I am with Nomad on this. I am so not a fan of Tim Burton.

So... the new Dark Shadows is a comedy, and the new Munsters is a drama? What?

I can't be the only person that groans every time I see that Burton is putting out a movie with Depp and Carter in it.

@JFKingsmill16 - hanging out with you must be like hanging out with a zombie for all the groaning you must do.

Anyway - Burton hasn't made a good movie in a long time. The trailer for this one intrigued me, but I'm still pretty skeptical.
