Japanese game show involving hot wax and plastic umbrellas. As usual, I have no grasp of the intricacies of Japanese popular culture.

The international teaser for Creep, a new horror movie starring Franka Potente. London, midnight, on a cold evening. Unable to find a taxi, Kate (Potente) heads for the Underground. She takes a seat away from the crowd of late-night revelers and waits for the last train. Before long she drifts off to sleep… and wakes to find everyone gone. She momentarily panics until another train pulls in. She boards, unnerved that she's the only passenger, but relieved at last to be on her way. Halfway through the tunnel the train jerks to a violent halt. The lights shut off and the train is plunged into darkness. Kate screams… she is trapped, in the dark… and she is not alone… her nightmare has only just begun.

A trailer and clip from White Noise: "The 'White Noise' of the title refers to a phenomenon known as EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena). Listen carefully, believers will tell you, and in amidst the white noise of a detuned radio you might hear voices...and in amidst the white noise of a detuned television, you might see faces. These, they'll tell you, are the voices and faces of the dead."

A-Team' Movie Ramping Up. My dream casting: BA- Ving Rheames, Murdock - Jim Carrey, Face - Brad Pitt, Hannibal - George Clooney. Unfortunately, that cast would cost too much.

Here is the trailer from Sex is Comedy. "Sex is Comedy," the latest film from controversial, groundbreaking French director Catherine Breillat ("Romance," "Fat Girl"), takes us into the world of Jeanne (Anne Parillaud of "La Femme Nikita"), a director struggling with a difficult sex scene between a young actress and actor who can't stand each other. Aided by her loyal assistant Leo (Ashley Wanninger), Jeanne is hell-bent on getting the scene right without compromise. Inspired by Breillat's own experiences, "Sex is Comedy" explores the mysteries and humor of social manipulations, sex and power within the confines of a feature-film set.

Astros hope to extend their miracle finish against the Cardinals.
  • I like the Cards, but I think the 'Stros have a chance. The Cards have Tony LaRussa and the best line-up in baseball, but the 'Stros have the hot hand, almost as strong a line-up, and better front-line pitching from the Rocket and Oswalt. Clemens went 18-4 for the year (and he's Roger Clemens, dammit), and Oswalt won an imposing 13 games after the all-star break!!
  • I would pick the Astros if their third and fourth pitchers were Wade Miller and Andy Pettite, as the Good Lord intended. Unfortunately, those guys are down for the count, replaced by Brandon Backe and Pete Munro. Munro will start game one in St. Louis, so the 'Stros will be massive underdogs in that game. If they survive Game One, they ... could ... go ... all ... the ... way.

Yanks and Sox square off in the most storied rivalry in professional sports.
The Red Sox finally seem to have the stronger team this year, and should be deadly in a short series after several days off, with Schilling and Pedro to pitch at least four, maybe five. (I'd try to start Schilling three times, if I were managing the BoSox.)

But that's way too logical. Simple truth is that the Red Sox are the Red Sox, and there is a greater, cosmic purpose for their existence in the master design of the cosmos. They have been added to the universe for the very purpose of getting to the edge of victory, then collapsing faster than Frankie Yankovic's accordion during a speed rendering of "Lady of Spain".

The Lord has created them to teach all of us underdogs that we should always hold out hope - even though we will end up with our heads mercilessly crushed under the hooves of our masters - for it is that heart-rending characteristic of baseless optimism which distinguishes us from the lesser species, like cherrystone clams, and marmots, and Iowans.

The greatest country singer of them all: C.S. Lewis, Jr. (Requires registration. It's really bobanddavid.com - those two crazy mofos from Mr. Show - so the registration is worth your time invested. This is one of the funnier bits I've seen in a while!! You have to love it when C.S. uses a full-sized French flag for toilet paper.)
