Pinky, Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering?

Are you pondering...

...that Sun Paik-Kwon is a witch? 

She's the Neville Longbottom of Lost. The show never really explained why Sun was so good with plants, but seriously, she could have taught herbology at Hogwarts.

A year or so ago, I read an article about TV characters who were never referred to as witches, but who nonetheless clearly demonstrated aspects of the craft. I wish I could find a link to that article for you, but despite my valiant efforts, I could not. I believe Wonder Woman and Radar from M*A*S*H were on the list.

...that Carly Rae Jepsen and Moby should collaborate on a song called "Call Me Ishmael Maybe?"

Hey, I just joined your crew,
And this is crazy,
But let's go whaling -
Call me Ishmael, maybe?
...that one of the next old-school movies I watch should be The Killers?

Baby is a bad boy with some retro sneakers
Let's go see The Killers and make out in the bleachers...

Do you think the band that Lady Gaga is singing in "Boys Boys Boys" about is named after this movie? Based on a short story by Ernest Hemingway, starring Ava Gardner and a beautiful young Burt Lancaster. What's not to like?

The next movie to arrive at my home via Netflix will be The Hunger Games. I'm so excited to finally see the movie. Are you pondering what I'm pondering?

...that Mrs. Slocombe from Are You Being Served? was changing her hair color every day before Effie Trinket made it cool?

Ava Gardner - not yet married to Frank Sinatra when 'The Killers' was filmed in 1946 - played a lying, conniving, backstabbing Irish-American woman in that movie. She looked damned good doing it, too.
