This week, we run the gamut of emotions here at the ol’ Tower, from joy (at the prospect of no more new Phil Collins tunes to be shoved down our throats) to potential existential dread (the strange deaths of the Dyatlov Pass incident in the former USSR) to fond nostalgia (Don Rosa’s “Captain Kentucky” run in the Louisville Times in the early 1980s) to envy (in this case, of Aaron Eckhart’s chin in the film Battle: LA, although, to be fair, he was wearing chin-accentuating head gear for much of the film). Also, TowerBot let’s his freak flag fly in the wild on the search for Bigfoot and nachos! Uncork your bottled-up emotions and sit a spell, won’t you?
