The advance demand for Shrek 2 is so "ogre-whelming" that the release date has been pushed back two days to a Wednesday. I guess they are expecting it to achieve mega-blockbuster status.

Greg Rucka, the writer of the new WONDER WOMAN movie, says that Charisma Carpenter has lost the chance to appear as the lead character because she posed for Playboy Huh?? So T&A and a buff body will be a liability for the role? Is Katharine Hepburn still alive?

Mac OS X riddled with security holes. Secunia has given the five - yes, five - new patches a "highly critical" rating and warned that they may allow hijacking, security bypass, data manipulation, privilege escalation, denial of service and system access.

I searched Amazon.com for "Bertolt Brecht", and it took me directly to the page for "Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama". Apparently Brecht did some slumming when he wasn't working on Mother Courage and The Threepenny Opera.

Today's big news in Norway: New embassy fence built in downtown Oslo. Construction expected to take a year. It is supposed to be designed to prevent terrorist attacks. That seems like an implausible justification, given that time frame, unless they figure the terrorists are entitled to a year of free access!

MichaelMoore.com givers the expected reaction to Disney's decision to block Miramax distribution of Michael's new film. This is only the beginning of the story.
  • Moore ends up the big winner on this. I'm sure he will find some way to distribute the film eventually, if not theatrically, then on DVD, and when he does, all this "censorship" publicity will drive additional sales! In effect, Moore is letting Disney and the mainstream media do his promotional campaign for free, while also getting the opportunity to scream "censorship" and push his agenda. (Remember how Bill O'Reilly and his pals drove Al Franken's incredibly crappy book toward the top of the charts?)
  • Having said that, I don't know what else Disney could have done. They are into bland entertainment and they avoid controversy whenever possible. They didn't want to piss off either one of the Bushes, especially Florida Bush - Florida is essential to their profit structure. The situation forced them to make a good faith effort to show that they were not supporting Miramax on this project.
  • If you don't know the politics involved. Disney and its Maramax division have been fighting over this from Day 1. Disney just didn't want the kind of attention that this kind of project generates. Miramax's Harvey Weinstein, however, mixes up his profit motive with Democratic politics, and has consistently encouraged Moore on this project.
  • Overseas rights have apparently been secured, so North America is the remaining battleground.

7 clips from Off the Lip : "Kat, a brand new journalism grad, has landed her first big job. It's in Hawaii and she couldn't be more excited. All it requires is an upbeat personality, good instincts and a lot of perseverance. But Kat is finding the work harder than she ever imagined. For one thing, her prey - an elusive big wave surfer named 'The Monk' - doesn't intend to be found, and the friendly locals are being somewhat less than helpful. Her uninvited boyfriend is driving her crazy, her ex-surfer guide has been on the losing end of too many waves, the geek she's reporting to is falling in love with her, and she's wanted by the FBI. What's a girl to do?! Kat realizes too late that finding 'The Monk' will cost her more than she could ever afford. But can she foresee that she'll wind up finding herself?"
