"Moments after resigning his post at the Justice Department, Attorney General John Ashcroft was tapped for another big job in the Bush administration, being named the United States's first-ever ambassador to Mars." "I can think of no one better suited to being ambassador to Mars than John Ashcroft," said President Bush in a brief statement. "He has been preparing for this job for his entire life."

The Johnny Web review of Frankenfish
  • "We know that the Good Lord did not want gerbils to be 80 feet tall, because He would then have made Richard Gere much larger, for obvious reasons."
  • "God intends to punish her for something she did with another woman and some KY jelly and some Japanese octopus porn and some common table salt - even though she was only 16 at the time, and it was just one time, and she was just experimenting with sexuality in ways familiar to so many of us, especially those of us who live near the Japanese seacoast."

A trailer and five clips from Casshern: "An action-packed sci-fi thriller, 'Casshern' blends Japanimation and manga-inspired live action resulting a new kind of hybrid filmmaking that is both visually stunning and thought-provoking. The human cast propels the action against a backdrop of CGI, special effects, and a wide range of animation techniques, from state of the art to simple stop-motion animation. It is late in the 21st century. After 50 years of devastating war between Europa and the Eastern Federation, the latter has emerged victorious, and the new federation of Eurasia is formed. There can be no glorious peace, however, as the planet has been ravaged by chemical, biological and even nuclear weapons and the entire human race is dispirited and exhausted by half a century of war. A geneticist named Azuma brings hope in the form of a 'neo-cell,' which can rejuvenate human parts with no risk of rejection. But nature interferes with science to create a new kind of menace that forces the entire human race to fight an ultimate war against its own extinction."

Here's a trailer for The Work and the Glory: "Adapted from Gerald N. Lund's blockbuster series, 'The Work and the Glory' is a moving love story set against the backdrop of religious intolerance of 19th century America. Recently moved to upstate New York from the comfort of their Vermont homestead, the Benjamin Steed family makes their way into the established social structure of Palmyra. In their attempt to settle peacefully into the new community, they find that the help they have hired to clear their land is at the center of a religious controversy threatening to tear the family apart. As two of the Steed brothers contend for the favor of a wealthy merchant's daughter, their family battles over deeper issues of spiritual truth, religious tolerance and family loyalty."

Here's the trailer for Easy - an independent romantic dramedy. "Jamie Harris, portrayed with sparkling intelligence by actress Marguerite Moreau, is a neurotic, bright 25-year-old with a career naming peculiar consumer products. Though she gives them their identities, she's rather confused about her own. After dating a string of jerks, she's bewildered about whom to trust or how to find true intimacy. When two seemingly honorable men orbit around her, Jamie must confront what she is most afraid of."

Brosnan agrees to do a sequel to The Thomas Crown Affair. In a bid to become the least original movie ever made, this film will not only be a sequel to a remake, but at the same time it will also be a remake of another movie (Topkapi).
  • Strange. I thought After the Sunset was the sequel to The Thomas Crown Affair. I guess it doesn't count because they changed the names of the characters.

What wasn't mentioned is whether they made a distinction between natural and synthesized vitamin E. The synthetic form consists of both d- and l- isomers of alpha tocopherol, whereas the natural form is exclusively d-alpha tocopherol.

Analogous to cis- and trans- fatty acids, the cis- form are natural and are processed easily, whereas the trans- form cause all kinds of problems, most importantly suspected as a leading factor in heart disease and hardening of the arteries. Hence why there is an emphasis on "trans-fat free" food products these days.

I wouldn't be surprised if l-alpha tocopherol has health risks as well. For sure, I'd stick with natural source vitamin E, even though it is more expensive. For vitamin C, there is no difference between synthetic and natural, I go with whatever is cheaper.

Beatles' 1968 song Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da has been voted the worst song ever. I don't know about EVER, but it's a solid candidate. I have to admit, though that I mentally discard any poll that doesn't show "Good Morning, Starshine" in the Top 10. Everyone sing alone with me "Nibby aba noopy ...."

This week's movies: Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason - 17% positive. The critics did not think that this was a worthy successor to the popular original.
  • James Berardinelli wrote: "On those rare occasions when The Edge of Reason isn't regurgitating material from Bridget Jones' Diary, it is taking ill-advised excursions into unfunny slapstick and sappy melodrama. Bridget Jones in a Thai prison?"

Colin Farrell May Star as Sonny Crockett in in 'Miami Vice'. If Michael Mann directs, while Colin and Jamie Foxx star, that might actually be worth seeing. Of course, it still hinges on finding the right script, doesn't it?
