The stamp boys have gone all postal over stamps.com. The do-it-yourself stamp program has been suspended, will be re-evaluated. I think they have to find out a way to keep this program going. It has been a phenomenal success, and is about the best marketing idea in the past two decades. They just need to find some way to censor the craziness.

The trailer and a clip from Vera Drake: "London, 1950 - Vera Drake lives in a small flat with her husband Stan, and their grown-up son and daughter, Sid and Ethel. The family is not rich, but their combined incomes make for a reasonable life. Vera is a cleaner, Stan a mechanic in his brother Frank's garage, and Ethel works in a light-bulb factory. Sid is an apprentice tailor. The Drakes have something money can't buy: they are a genuinely happy family."

Current Electoral Vote Predictor 2004: Bush 295, Kerry 243.. Changes: New Mexico is back in the Kerry column, but Bush picks up New Hampshire, temporarily breaking Kerry's stranglehold on the Northeast. (Bush is ahead by one point there. He barely won New Hampshire in 2000 as well.)

A featurette for A Love Song for Bobby Long : Southern Gothic drama. "Set in a forgotten section of New Orleans, Purslane Hominy Will (Scarlett Johansson), a jaded teenage loner, returns to the city of her childhood upon hearing of her mother's death. Expecting to find her mother's house abandoned, Pursy is instead shocked to discover that it is inhabited by two men whose lives took a wrong turn years before. Friends of her mother's, Bobby Long (Vinny Barbarino), a former literature professor, and his protege/biographer have been firmly rooted in the dilapidated house for years with no intention of leaving. When all three stand their ground, they are forced to try to live together, setting the stage for the story of three people and their unlikely home. As time passes, Bobby, Lawson and Pursy are surprised by the secrets they discover about themselves and their histories, revealing the seemingly small choices that have inextricably intertwined their lives"

The trailer for Five Children and It. The brilliant Kenneth Branagh seems to be kind of down on his luck lately, reduced to co-starring in a kiddie flick with a goofy-looking muppet from Jim Henson's Creature Shop. BBC said, "The sole bright spot on a lacklustre canvas is comedian Eddie Izzard, whose semi-improvised contributions as 'It', the film's 8000-year-old, wish-granting fairy, recall the inspired lunacy of Robin Williams' genie in Aladdin."

The trailer for Brothers
  • "Michael has everything under control: a successful military career, a beautiful wife (Connie Nielsen) and two daughters. His younger brother Jannik is a drifter, living on the edge of the law. When Michael is sent to Afghanistan on a UN mission the balance between the two brothers changes forever. Michael is missing in action - presumed dead - and Sarah is comforted by Jannik, who against all odds shows himself capable of taking responsibility for both himself and the family. It soon becomes clear that their feelings have developed beyond mutual sympathy. When Michael comes home, traumatized by being held prisoner in the mountains of Afghanistan, nothing is the same..."
  • TRIVIA FROM IMDb: This is the first time Connie Nielsen has acted in Danish in many years. Nielsen has been living in the USA, and doesn't even speak Danish in her everyday life. Director Susanne Bier thought Nielsen's accent was more Swedish than Danish and made her take Danish lessons, but the result of the lessons turned out to be pretty good (though still with a little accent).

Actress Janet Leigh has died at the age of 77, presumably not from multiple stab wounds incurred while showering.. She is survived by her daughters, actresses Jamie Lee Curtis and Kelly Curtis.

Weekly World News: "LAURA BUSH: 'WHY I'M VOTING FOR JOHN KERRY'"
  • "I'M VOTING for John Kerry for President because sooner or later, when it becomes politically expedient, he shares my views on everything. He's not hard-headed like my husband.
  • "And he's not always saying, 'I answer to a Higher Power! It is the Lord's will!' when I fuss at him for forgetting to put the toilet seat down."

Virgin Atlantic Offers Upper Class Passengers Double Beds Onboard. When I used to fly first class a lot, I always chose my airline based on two things (1) the number and quality of movies available in the personal entertainment system (2) the amount of contact allowed with the lapdancers in the champagne room.

GALLUP: Kerry Pulls Even With Bush at 49%-49%. I guess Newsweek's poll wasn't as bad as suspected, because Gallup produced similar results. Gallup says, "There is little question that Thursday night's presidential debate has made a significant difference in the presidential race." Bush's lead of eight points on September 24 has now dissipated into a dead heat. The sampling error is plus or minus three at 95% confidence.

Fox News apologizes for Cameron's crazy fabricated Kerry quotes about manicures. :
  • "It was a poor attempt at humor", said Murdoch's designated lackey.
  • The Guardian article continues (immediately slipping from reporting into editorializing), "The "metrosexual" story taps into a persistent theme underlying the election race, in which the Republican party and its supporters in the media have sought to make a campaign issue of the candidates' perceived masculinity. At the party's convention in New York last month, California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger called Mr Kerry's advisors "economic girlie-men".
  • If that is true, why are the Republicans pussy-footing around? Are we to believe that they aren't even any good at dirty campaigning? Ol' LBJ at least had some balls. He would simply have said that Kerry was a homosexual (LBJ would have pronounced that word "homersexshill") and that his wife was obviously a fag-hag providing him with a convenient beard. Except Lyndon would have used much more colorful terminology. Lyndon's general theory, as applied to this case, could be summed up as follows- "I don't care if Kerry smokes the sausage or not. I just wanna hear the sumbitch call a press conference to deny it!"
