Remember when I sang "the kid is not my son"? Just kidding. MICHAEL Jackson has a secret FOURTH child who is now 19. (The boy definitely resembles him, so maybe it is true.)

Here's the trailer from Laura Linney's latest "unfulfilled woman movie", P.S.:
  • "Louise Harrington (Linney), a divorced, thirty-something admission's officer at Columbia University's School of Fine Arts is intelligent, pretty, successful, and ... (Here's a big surprise for a Linney movie. Wait for it ... ) ... unfulfilled. That is, until a graduate school application crosses her desk and she arranges to interview the young painter. When Scott Feinstadt appears, he bears an uncanny resemblance to Louise's high school boyfriend and one true love, an artist who died in a car accident twenty years earlier. Within hours of the interview, Louise and Scott have embarked on a passionately uninhibited older woman/younger man affair. But is Scott just a reminder of Louise's lost love? And is Scott just trying to wheedle his way into the Ivy League? Adding to the romantic complications is competition from Louise's best friend from high school, Missy, who shows up to claim the affections of the boy; Louise's co-dependent ex-husband Peter; her cynical mother, and fresh-out-of-rehab brother."
  • Isn't this basically the same plot as every other Laura Linney movie? In terms of doing the same thing over and over, she's becoming the female Hugh Grant. I'd like to see her packin' some heat in her next role, maybe one of those bad girl roles that Gina Gershon or Lena Olin would normally play.

Here is the full trailer for House of Flying Daggers: " 'House of Flying Daggers' is set in the year is 859AD as China's once flourishing Tang Dynasty is in decline. Unrest is raging throughout the land, and the corrupt government is locked in battle with rebel armies that are forming in protest. The largest, and most prestigious of these is the 'House of Flying Daggers', which is growing ever more powerful under a mysterious new leader. Two local captains, Leo and Jin are ordered to capture the new leader and the two hatch an elaborate plan. Captain Jin will pretend to be a lone warrior called Wind and rescue the beautiful, blind revolutionary Mei (Zhang Ziyi), from prison, earning her trust and escorting her to the secret headquarters of the House of Flying Daggers. The plan works, but to their surprise, Jin and Mei fall deeply in love on their long journey to the House. Danger lurks in the forest surrounding them, and the wind is still, as if sensing the tension in the air. What lies ahead for Jin and Mei, these star-crossed lovers? If this is true love, then why are there plots in their heads, and secrets in their hearts?"

Flirting With Disaster - The vile spectacle of Democrats rooting for bad news in Iraq and Afghanistan.This is written by Christopher Hitchens, the ultimate intellectual iconoclast and provocateur, who dumps on the right and left with equal vigor.

1) Hitchens stated he was "rightwing" on Tim Russert (CNBC) this weekend--and he was clearly dumping on the democrats. Apparently he had his rebirth in the late eighties.

2) Nothing he said on Russert should make one confuse him with an intellectual.

sample: The day will never come when they [fundamentalists] will own Iraq, and there will be no one in the United States who will be able to disagree with that even if every one of their sons has been killed in this war.

3)If Hitchens is perceived as an intellectual, the world is worse off than I thought.

4) Hitchens made a rather vile statement himself regarding Moslems on the show which Russert let pass w/o comment .

Somehow, I think Hitchens's comments on Ronald Reagan may cause him to lose his membership in the conservative club.

"The fox, as has been pointed out by more than one philosopher, knows many small things, whereas the hedgehog knows one big thing. Ronald Reagan was neither a fox nor a hedgehog. He was as dumb as a stump.

I could not believe that such a smart country would put up with such an obvious phony and loon."

Hitchens pretty much hates everyone and everything, but he is definitely an independent thinker. His thoughts on the current world stage seem to be more in line with the right.

But tomorrow he will be savaging them.

I have found him to be fearless. If he thinks Islam is vile, he is willing to say it publicly. Of course, I don't always agree with him, but I admire his guts and his intellectual honesty.

The Comedy Central late-night series 'Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn' has likely reached the end of its run. Intense ratings analysis showed that the show's audience consisted of only two groups: (1) People too stoned to turn the TV off after The Daily Show (2) Colin Quinn's mom

Wacky Danish director Lars von Trier vows to revolutionize gay porn. And thank God for that! I was really getting tired of those stale old gay porn films. I mean ... um ... in theory! Not that there's anything wrong with that. John Waters must be so jealous that von Trier thought of this first.

Easily duped Americans view Rather's memo story as an 'honest mistake'.
  • Oh, yeah. Sure. And the Easter Bunny is real. I would think it was an honest mistake, too, except that when the documents were revealed to be false, Rather self-servingly pled for the President to deal with the charges and issues involved instead of to question the authenticity of the documents. Well, let's see, Dan. Why did he not deal with the issues raised by fake documents? Gosh, I don't know, call me crazy, Danno, but I'm pretty sure if I fake evidence that you fuck sheep, you'll attack the documents rather than discuss your sheep-fucking habits on the air. "Hey, it was only once, maybe twice. Nobody but Kenneth really knows the frequency. And I was in college. And I was drunk. And it was a ewe."
  • In order to believe it was an honest mistake, one has to be able to answer "no" to the following question: "If the documents had been about the youth of John Kerry, or the youth of Dan Rather, would they have been subjected to more rigorous standards of authenticity?" I believe the answer is obviously "yes", and if you think the answer is "no", I would like to talk to you about buying some swampland in Florida from me. Since only extreme naivete could produce a "no" response, I must conclude that it was therefore a dishonest mistake.

Propeller Island City Lodge Padded Cell - Live in a Work of Art: "From top to bottom and all around the bed, everything is upholstered with green leather. A kingly or queenly room where one can hear his own heart beat when the spirit grows weary. Small but exquisite, and undeniably noble on top of that!"
