With the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic looming on the horizon there has been a load of television,books,movies about that fateful night making the rounds. I'll fully admit that the Titanic is one of my favorite historical "things". I'll watch almost any show about it on History or NatGeo Channel, I had a brief obsession with the movie (Give me a break, I was like 18 and went to see it with my boyfriend...there's a metaphor for our relationship in there somewhere.) I am thoroughly enjoying the James Cameron special airing on NatGeo right now and am looking forward to the Ballard special airing tomorrow night.
On the lighter side of things (yeah I know it was a tragedy, dont lecture me) the hashtag Titanic2012 was trending on Twitter tonight and I literally laughed myself to tears over a few of these tweets.
It is basically the sinking of the Titanic/Movie! Titanic if it were to happen in our tech savvy always connected world today...
