Red Sox take a 4-0 lead in games, set the stage to lose five in a row for heartbreaking 5-4 loss. Wait a minute. It's best of seven. THEY FUCKING WON!

We can be thankful for scheduling conflicts. Queen Latifah was originally cast to play Halle Berry's role in Monster's Ball. And she says she was gonna do the sex scene, albeit with Robert DeNiro instead of Billy Bob Thornton.

Who was voted movie villain of the year? Despite stiff competition from Doctor Octopus from Spider-Man 2 and Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the winner was President Bush in Fahrenheit 9/11.

The National Enquirer claims: President Clinton is fighting a blood infection and may have suffered possible brain damage. All Presidents seem to get this brain damage eventually. Clinton is one of the few to have it happen after he left office. Seriously, Clinton's weakness explains his recent decision to cut back on the campaigning he once hoped to do.

I could say that reality TV has hit a new "low point", but that might be a bit obvious. Fox presents "The Littlest Groom." Mad Max, meet Mad Min. Twelve tiny women enter, one leaves with a tiny fellow.

The trailer and a stills gallery from Closer. This is an adaptation of Patrick Marber's acclaimed play and revolves around two couples. When the guy from the first couple links up with the girl from the other couple, the group dynamic turns ugly. The film stars Jude Law, Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman, and Clive Owen.

Scientists discover an ancient race of 'Little People'. Believe it or not, we had pre-modern human ancestors smaller than Tom Cruise. I learned a lot from this article. Anthropologists discuss something called The Wallace Line, which distinguishes the evolutionary path of species on islands which have never been connected to a continent, as opposed to islands which have broken off from the mainland over time. Isolated Pacific islands to the East of the Wallace Line have a species rule based upon the size of a rabbit - given an absence of predators, island creatures smaller than rabbits tend to breed upward in size, while creatures larger then rabbits breed downward. Rabbits, presumably, stay the same. The net effect is that all species approach the same size. The new mini-human finding is important because it is the first known case of humans or primates conforming to the rabbit rule.

Western women don't know squat. Scientists have concluded that white women squat no better than white men jump.

The Daily Show's Rob Corddry is excited to say he's covering the election, and not just because he's contractually obligated to make that claim.

Here's the trailer for the STV haunted house flick, The Dark. It stars Anna Paquin, Lena Olin, Iain Glen, and a man I like to think of as the Italian Olivier, Giancarlo Giannini. You have to love a film that uses the word "heinous" in the official synopsis, but features neither Bill nor Ted. In other news, straight-to-video films have trailers.

Eight clips from Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. In a weird time-space paradox, the length of the clips is now hundreds of times greater than the actual running time of the film. To make the puzzle even more mystifying, the length of time Hugh Grant is on screen in these clips is longer than Hugh Grant's actual life.

Incredibly obnoxious German TV commercial for K-fee, a caffeine-enhanced energy boosting drink.

Joi Ito's Web: www.georgewbush.com blocks access outside the USA. For some reason not clear to me, but subjected to endless speculation at this blog, the President's official re-election home page seems to have intentionally or unintentionally blocked access to anyone outside North America. This includes the countries in the coalition of the willing. It can not be accessed in Norway, Australia, or England, for example.

I'm sure it would have been inaccessible in Poland if they had computers there.

The Toronto Star has published this new photo of Michael Chiklis as The Thing on the Vancouver Fantastic Four set. It's probably one of the best looks yet at the full costume for the character.

Red Sox take 3-0 lead to set the stage for biblically tragic 4-3 defeat. In order to produce four consecutive last-minute losses, Johnny Pesky and Bill Buckner are ready to be activated if necessary.
