First things first, there is a SuperMoon this weekend, but this article claims it is over-hyped and won’t be that special. Enh, go look at it with your loved ones anyway. http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2013/06/20/supermoon_big_bright_moon_but_no_more_than_usual.html

This article about book-to-movie adaptations caught my eye today. http://www.blastr.com/2013-6-20/8-big-book-movie-adaptation-changes-we-loved-plus-3-we-hated

And Gene Roddenberry’s ashes are headed to space, my dears. The Final Frontier. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/20/gene-roddenberry-star-trek-remains-space_n_3474455.html?utm_hp_ref=entertainment

Joss Whedon is gearing up to see Man of Steel to do his homework. http://www.blastr.com/2013-6-20/joss-whedon-explains-why-he-wont-be-seeing-man-steel-just-fun

News broke that Robert Downey Jr. will continue being Iron Man. Why not? It is a steady paycheck for the guy. http://io9.com/rdj-will-definitely-be-iron-man-in-avengers-2-and-3-520057042

Poking fun at the New Doctor fervor, Kevin Bacon told people it was he. http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/06/20/kevin-bacon-tells-people-on-the-street-that-hes-the-new-doctor-who/ And, this finally came out about the Doctor Who “missing” episodes and people still are believing there are 3 tons of film somewhere being sorted through by BBC minions as we speak. I have given up hope, myself. http://www.bleedingcool.com/2013/06/20/doctor-who-episodes-they-are-not-missing-but-destroyed-the-end/

Woodley is out of The Amazing Spiderman trilogy and Gadon is in, which makes me sick. http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/news/a492094/the-amazing-spider-man-casts-cosmopoliss-sarah-gadon.html

In real Science news, a huge bumblebee death has been discovered and just adds to the bees dying off concern. http://www.digitalspy.com/tv/news/a491988/james-gandolfini-remembered-by-sesame-street-video.html

Orwell’s 1984 being only $3.00 as an ebook is a travesty to me. http://io9.com/keep-your-eyes-on-big-brother-with-a-3-copy-of-george-515588246

Here is an R2D2 cake that actually has a holographic Leia message emanating from it. http://www.blastr.com/2013-6-20/r2-d2-cake-actually-projects-princess-leias-holographic-plea-help

And finally, in non-Sci Fi news, James Gandolfini died of a heart attack and broke many of the hearts of those of us who loved his work. Here is a sweet Sesame Street video featuring him. http://www.digitalspy.com/tv/news/a491988/james-gandolfini-remembered-by-sesame-street-video.html
