Birds show off their dance moves
"Some birds have a remarkable talent for dancing, two studies published in Current Biology suggest.
Footage revealed that some parrots have a near-perfect sense of rhythm; swaying their bodies, bobbing their heads and tapping their feet in time to a beat.
One bird, Snowball, a sulphur-crested cockatoo (Cacatua galerita eleanora ), came to the researchers' attention after YouTube footage suggested he might have a certain prowess for dance - especially when listening to Everybody by the Backstreet Boys."

Anyone who has birds could tell you that. My bird Figaro goes bananas whenever I play Mozart! Truly. Love,from suicide watch, no joke-I have an ankle bracelet like I'm under house arrest. Life is a kick!

Thanks Eddie, this anklet makes me feel like Martha Steward! So L.A. glam, don't you know all the chic chicks have worn these Paris Hilton etc. It seems the meds I was on for my shoulder pain gave me a chemical reaction and caused a deep depression. Be careful with the meds you take! Love the bird story! And you last photos you looked great-very youthful!

Hey Eddie, I was reading the comments after your Thursday, 3 May 2007 Vinnie Colletta article until they abruptly ended. Maybe you could fix this or, if not, email them to me? Comments about Mr. Colletta never fail to entertain.

Um... I'll just check back...
no way. We have had enough of that baloney.
How can people take comic books so seriously? It really is all rubbish.

Tita,

The big Alec book will have all the Alec books except fate of the artist, as well as 100 pages of rare stuff and out of that 100, at least 45 have never been in print before.
