This week, Sharknado, the car wreck of a flick that ran on Sy Fy dominated the social media sites and incited many to near violence. Why is this dreck being made and why am I now giving them free promotion? Ugh. We got a glimpse of David Bradley in the upcoming Adventures in Time and Space docudrama about Doctor Who, we found out that a police car in NY is driving around at night playing the Imperial March from Star Wars, and heard what we thought was a legitimate story about Mia Farrow and Philip Roth watching the above Sharknado together. It was almost weird enough to be believable, but evidently wasn’t. Read on, my Deep Fryers…

This cool, if a bit forced, theory about the Pixar films being in the same universe was posted this week. http://jonnegroni.com/2013/07/11/the-pixar-theory/
