"...as human beings we are capable of making sense of situations based on the thinnest slice of experience."
— Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink and The Tipping Point.
ODDFELLAS: Juxtaposing Kevin Jonas and Adam Lambert is just too much to resist. One of them -- Lambert -- wants to be David Bowie without the substance and the other wants to be, I dunno, maybe Rick Springfield? Anyhoos, Lambert's revealed his album cover and it's very campy and kind of reminds us of Bowie's "Pin-Ups" cover from 1973. And Jonas took his fiancee home to mom and she approved, which is a bit more wholesome than a Bowie infatuation and a lot less interesting. (RL)
PARANORMALCY: The cheapo film Paranormal Activity was a big time winner at the box office this weekend, proving that with $15,000 and a creative imagination you can make lots and lots of money and scare the wits out of millions of people. The film relies on suspense rather than gore. What a novel concept. (RL)
THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT (NOT): We here at Thin Slices do not believe that the world is going to end anytime soon. Call us optimists, but while we acknowledge that humanity is a life form that could get zapped by something that's out there, we're doubters. And so is this guy, who explains the point quite well.
