Thursday This And That

Its been a while since I’ve done one of these.  Here we go:
Remember me telling you about those paparazzi leaked pictures of Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows?  Entertainment Weekly has the full cast photo and a clearer idea of what the movie will be about.
Ken Levine finally got to see Thor, but didn’t think much about it.  I’d correct him, but I liked reading his review of it.
Today would’ve been Charles Schulz’ 88th birthday.  Mental Floss has a post about comparing Schulz with Charlie Brown.
What can you do if you have a similar phone number as a business, and they’re refusing to do anything about it (or dragging their feet)?  I suggest what Mark Evanier did about an art gallery that not only had a close number but listed his phone number in advertising by mistake.
Worried about what to do about buying Christmas presents? Layaway is making a comeback.
