    Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk told an audience at South by Southwest that his timeline for sending a space vehicle to Mars could mark its first milestone early next year. The privately-funded venture, announced in September 2017, aims to send a cargo mission to the Red Planet by 2022. SpaceX's ultimate objective is to plant the seeds to put a human colony on Mars. Musk held a surprise question and answer session at the annual technology and culture festival in Austin, Texas on Sunday. The billionaire told attendees that "we are building the first Mars, or interplanetary ship, and...

    Fred and Ginger! What a pair. Nofamily enjoyed "Carefree" (1938) last night, a typically silly story featuring the stiffest Ralph Bellamy performance ever. Who cares? Don't watch for plot. The couple danced a dream sequence filmed in slow motion that captures magic. He's dramatic. She's magnificent. They're explosive, yet perfectly in synch. Tell Noman whether their kiss at the end doesn't convince you? Fred did a solo with golf clubs that gets off to a slow start, picks up steam and finishes strong. Who else besides Fred Astaire could pull this off?

    (photo -- see caption LOL) Let us be the first to say it: Come out of the closet, Chris Matthews. Matthews on-going Obama-erotic comments get stranger and stranger on a nightly basis. Last night the host of MSNBC’s Hardball compared Barack Obama to suave 1940’s dancer and heartthrob Fred Astaire. “Yeah, he’s Fred Astaire out there,” Matthews enthused. “He is light-hearted, I mean he’s light, he still moves around with incredible alacrity.” For god’s sake, Chris,...
