The esteemed My Sammy Sosa is now #8 on the all-time home run leaders. He needs only nine more to tie Killebrew for 7th, but Sammy has only 25 this year, and is hitting only .238 since he came off the DL, so 2004 will not turn out to be one of his great seasons.

Kingsley to play Vampire Kagan in the movie version of the 'BloodRayne' videogame. Gandhi is a vampire? Y'know, I'm really not very afraid of a vampire who's always on a hunger strike. What can he do? Give me a hickey?

The artist formerly known as Madonna (she's now Esther) needs a soundproof room for all her concert appearances. Come to think of it, that's not so weird. I also need a soundproof room when near a Madonna concert.

"Bill Clinton has two important goals these days -- promoting his new best-selling book -- and dating the Olsen twins" The article states that Clinton has kept an Olsen twins scrapbook for years, has every TV show and movie they've done on video, and even has a secret shrine to them in his Harlem office.

Conservative commentators have been lining up to denounce 'Team America: World Police' (without knowing anythign about it!). These IQ-impaired lads don't seem to realize that Matt and Trey are (1) comedians, whose job it is to make fun of people - and they do it better than anyone, and (2) middle-of-the-road Middle America conservatives who will save their harshest barbs for America's enemies and the liberal elite (Michael Moore, Streisand, the Baldwins, and Affleck)! Example: "Among the film's chief villains is Kim Jong Il, who throws UN weapons inspector Hans Blix into a huge aquarium, where he is promptly ripped to pieces by a shark."

Romanian police to ban ladies over 60 years old from topless sunbathing. Dude, why not go all the way? Get rid of the naked guys and children, and the ugly chicks - legal toplessness for hot chicks only. And while you're at it, make it mandatory.

South Africa terrorized by a gang of fat women. Didn't I see this on Monty Python? The funniest thing is that the Durban police inspector says this is not his first encounter with plus-sized gangs.

McGruff, step aside - "kids will be introduced to a Homeland Security mascot in the form of a dog, an American shepherd." Thank God it's not a German or Belgian Shepherd, but a shepherd from the good ol' US of A. Can a dog cry "wolf", or is that post-ironic? I can't wait to hear the comments from Triumph, the insult comic dog.

Walesa says Americans are making fun of Poles. I can't see how he could think such a thing. He must really have his bowling shirt buttoned too tight. (Seriously, Walesa has a point. America requires Poles to get a visa to visit the USA, but not Frenchmen, despite the fact that Poland is probably America's #1 ally on the continent of Europe)

The Earth is gradually vanishing from the view of any aliens that might be looking for us, because we are using fewer technologies that leak radio waves into space. According to New Scientist our transition from radio transmissions to cable could mean that our window of detectability is no more than 100 years. (This also explains, or partially explains, why our own searches through the galaxy have revealed dead silence. "Assuming any hypothetical Aliens have developed at a similar pace to ours, and accounting for the fact that we're looking for a needle in a haystack int he first place, we shouldn't be too disheartened that we've not found anyone out there.")

'American Pie 4' is on the fast track to production. It doesn't have a lot to do with the previous three. This time it will feature a new generation - Matt Stifler, the Stifmeister's little brother. It appears that a new actor will play that part. No news on whether any of the famous characters will appear. The director will be Steve Rash, the director of Under the Rainbow and Can't Buy Me Love. (And, yes, those were a long time ago.)

Here's the trailer for Nicotina. Greed transforms into twisted desperation when a simple exchange goes awry, and the lives of amateur thieves, an obsessed hacker and ordinary people explode in a tumultuous night over a fortune in diamonds. When the haze finally clears, computers have been hacked, people have been whacked and lives have gone up in a cloud of smoke. (This offbeat Mexican dark comedy/crime drama looks like it might have some merit. Looks like a Guy Richie movie with a touch of salsa. It was nominated for 12 Ariels, winning 6.)

Most moons have no haze layer at all - why does Titan have two? Images from the Cassini spacecraft that slipped into orbit around Saturn last month confirm that Titan, the Solar System's most mysterious moon is surrounded not only by a thick atmosphere but also by two distinct spheres of haze.
