Baby Goats, Brian Wilson, and More! My Fun Desert Adventures This Week! 


Monday began with a visit to Desert Adventures Eco-Tours in Indio, CA. Every time there's an earthquake in the valley, folks want to partake on their tour because they're sitting smack dab on the San Andreas Fault! Take a look:

Wednesday, my adventure continued at The Living Desert! Their theme is BABIES IN BLOOM! Why? Because there are many cute babies at the zoo! I met a baby porcupine (they're called porcupet do you know that?) named Tootsie, and baby goats! Take a look:

Let the Oscar Games Begin -- Check Out "Foxcatcher" Trailer! Steve Carell is Mesmerizing! 


All I can say is WOW! Steve Carrell is the subject of this brand new trailer of "Foxcatcher" from esteemed and respected auteur, Bennett Miller ("Capote," "Moneyball").

Based on the true story of John du Pont, Carell personifies the multimillionaire who was convicted of killing his friend, Dave Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo), an Olympic champion freestyle wrestler. Channing Tatum stars as Ruffalo's brother, Mark, a wrestler.

I can see Oscars all over this movie! Miller won Best Director at this year's Cannes, and the film is getting ready to flex its muscles at Telluride, Toronto, and New York film festivals!

Take a look at "Foxcatcher" trailer below:
