R.I.P. Sir Edmund Hillary - Sir Edmund Hillary, the mountaineer and explorer who won worldwide acclaim in 1953 by becoming the first to scale the 29,035-foot summit of Mount Everest has died at age 88. If ever someone could be called a hero, as in someone to look up to, it was he.

Hollywood workers take a beating over Golden Globes cancellation - OK, I can only imagine the numbers of people who would have been working that are now not, what with the show itself not happening and all the parties, etc. That's a lot of work lost, and I am sorry for that. At the same time, though, I've been sick of what these award shows have become for years. In my own opinion, it should never have gotten this bad, regardless, so I'm not shedding a tear for it's loss. Frankly, I think it's too bad that it'll just come back stronger next year. This overdone schmaltz and bullshit, it's a waste.
