Things are tough right now....but everything will be fine.

As long as we elect Trent Reznor as President.

I see press conferences with Reznor standing next to a keyboard instead of a lectern, unleashing his special brand of emotional abuse, delivered through powerful industrial electronic riffs, upon a cowering David Gregory.

I want to see Helen Thomas find her "Happiness in Slavery".

Movie Spotlight

Currently on Showtime Beyond:

Deep Evil (2004)

"An assault team heads into remote Alasksa following a distress signal from a top-secret weapons lab."

There are no stars listed, it is like it is not even rated.

Maybe thats because Lance Cumson is in it.

Lorenzo Lamas

Stop it.

Con Man

One of the better quotes out there, courtesy of Billy Ray Valentine (Eddie Murphy). The scene when he is confronted by the police, while pretending to be a disabled Vietnam veteran, in Trading Places:

Cop: "You were in 'Nam? What unit?"

Valentine: "Uh, the Green Berets Special Unit Battalion's Commando Airborne Tactics Specialist Tactics Unit Battalion. It was hush-hush."

Dr. Evil is really Lorne Michaels

Dennis miller has a radio show these days. Dana Carvey was on tonight and he did an impression of SNL Producer Lorne Michaels asking Carvey (while part of the cast) if had nailed the Danny Bonaduce impersonation yet. After Carvey's brief monologue, Miller commented that the accent Myers uses in the Austin Powers movies, as Dr. Evil, is actually Myers impersonating Carvey impersonating Lorne Michaels.

It was true, at least according to my ear.

Obi-Wan's Big Entrance

Watched some Return of the Jedi again tonight....because HBO is shoving it down my throat. I got something out of it though, in this case a good chuckle after noticing something I never noticed before. I was wondering about Obi-Wan and his ability to use the Force to communicate with Luke Skywalker even though Kenobi is dead. When Luke is visiting Yoda and Obi-Wan appears, he appears 25 feet away and sort of walks into the scene as if he is returning from a nice walk around the block. If he is so powerful, why can't he just materialize on a swamp log, right next to Luke? Its almost as if that is too easy, and he enjoys materializing a few feet away so he can make a big show of it.

I'm not sure, but I had a good laugh either way.

the military channel

Just seen on the Military Channel, during an episode of "Warbots": brief comment from one of the Northrop Grumman reps, regarding the X-47n flying combat drone. More specifically, comment from a fellow by the name of Mick Jaggers.

That is an awesome name.
