Happy Winter Solstice Open Thread

seasonalvariations-edited

The winter solstice is the solstice that occurs in winter. It is the time at which the Sun appears at noon at its lowest altitude above the horizon. [2] In the Northern Hemisphere this is the Southern solstice, the time at which the Sun is at its southernmost point in the sky, which usually occurs on December 21 to 22 each year.[3]

The world hasn’t yet ended, but a new season has begun and we’re now spinning toward favor with the sun once again. Hope you’re having a good one. This is an open thread.

    “Skyfall” producer Paul Epworth revealed that singer Adele recorded her vocals for the film’s theme song in just 10 minutes. Epworth said the Grammy award winning singer immediately loved the track, and had the lyrics ready in her head when she drove over to the studio. “Within 10 mins, she put down most of the vocals. It was the most absurd thing. Shes fast, but it was really quite phenomenal,” said Epworth. The producer also said that he was surprised by Adele’s sultry delivery in the song’s opening bars. “She never really mentioned she could sing the Shirley Bassey-esque slurs that does in the opening”. Kudos to you Adele, on your talent and more importantly, your professionalism.

    I’m shocked. I was driving home, and rarely listen to NPR anymore, because it’s such an O-love fest, but I actually heard Bill Moyers and other panelists criticizing Obama for putting entitlements on the table and saying he was “to the right of Eisenhower.” He went on to expose his hypocrisy on lobbyists and transparency, citing the huge loopholes in finance reform. Merry Christmas–some truth!

    Politically potent Hollywood escapes scrutiny following mass shootings.
