Morning Roundup: Springsteen on Mars

Thursday is right before Friday, which means it’s sort of like being on the edge of the plank on the pirate ship that is your workweek. If Thursday is the plank, then Friday and the weekend are the waiting jaws of the crocodile. (Can you hear the ticking clock?) To give you something to occupy your thoughts while you wait, here’s a selection of interesting offsite links.

Highlights include:

1.) J.J. Abrams is supposedly committed to Trek 2

2.) Pop songs are duking it out for sci-fi supremacy

3.)The Boss is going to Mars (image via The Onion)

4.) Asimov Bradbury hearts Heinlein forever
