The Incredibles had the seventh best "second weekend" of all time. Each of the top 15 films on this list did at least $250 million in total gross. The films in positions 5-9 (the two above and the two below The Incredibles) averaged about $350 million.

The lost city of Atlantis has moved yet again. Actually, this discovery sounds promising.

You probably know that the USA and India rank 1-2 in the world in the number of computer programmers - but can you name #3 and #4? You may be surprised, especially by #4

Watch two scenes from "All About Anna". The first scene is boring, but be patient. In the second scene, Gry Bay and her lover get completely naked and do some very naughty things!

Commander Buzz Corry dead at 84. Ed Kemmer was one of the very first nationwide TV stars in live broadcast history. (Space Patrol is regarded as the first West Coast show to be broadcast live nationwide on Saturday mornings.)

Trial reveals spammer techniques. Interesting article, if you wonder where all that junk e-mail comes from.

This week's movies: late news. Kinsey - 93% positive reviews. Frankly, I don't know which week Kinsey belongs to, if any.
  • According to Box Office Mojo, Kinsey is only in five theaters in the entire USA, but it has already been reviewed by several dozen critics, and has already attracted the wrath of religious conservative groups. Although the reviews and the averages per screen have been excellent, Fox Searchlight continues with an exceedingly modest expansion plan. In other words, it is not coming soon to a theater near you.
  • Fox Searchlight is now sitting on two films (Kinsey - 93% positive reviews - and Sideways - 97% positive) with heaps of critical praise and minimal distribution.

Iran tells guillible Europeans it will suspend uranium enrichment. This is a good strategy for them. If they develop uranium enrichment and admit it, they are subject to possible U.N. sanctions. If they continue with the program and deny it, they will be able to hustle the Europeans for technical and financial aid, including help in developing Iranian nuclear energy for {cough} power generation.

This week's movies: late report. Seed of Chucky - 31% positive reviews. There were no pre-release reviews because The Chuckster was not pre-screened for critics. That is usually a very bad omen. I haven't seen the film. Roger Ebert's review is excellent and funny. He says that the movie is really two separate films: one half is actually quite funny when Jennifer Tilly is on screen, but the other half fails miserably when the puppets are at bat.

The Incredibles has another ... well ... incredible weekend at the box office.
  • It took in another $51 million, roughly equalling the take of the four new releases added together.
  • The Bridget Jones movie did look strong in its limited release, with an average of $16,700 per screen (actually higher than The Incredibles)
  • Among the 2000 screen films, Alfie was the weak sister with a total of only $2 million in its second weekend.

Is it just a coincidence that the Clinton Library looks like a mobile home? I thought so, until I noticed that the ticket-takers are ol' Cletis and his coon dog.

Crooked Timber: The British American Project. Why England, Ireland, and America should be one country.
  • The countries have a lot to give to one another. Great Britain would enter as three states, Northern England, Southern England, and Scotland. Northern Ireland and The Republic of Ireland would both become part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Wales would become an independent country. Y'know, he's half kidding, but there is a lot of merit to what he is saying. The Neocon Red State lads, the fellas who are now calling the shots, would never allow it, of course. That would be six new democratic Senators, and would automatically apportion about 1/6 of the electoral votes to the new guys - all new Blue States.
  • As long as we are just spouting theoretical crap, there might be a way to make it happen politically. Before the Civil War, both sides would agree to admit a free state or territory if there was a corresponding slave state or territory, and vice-versa. Conservatives might agree to a new form of Missouri Compromise. They might admit the liberal, secular UK to the union if a conservative, religious country (say Poland, for a very realistic example) could be admitted at the same time.
  • The current name of the country is The United States "of America". It would have to be changed to the United States of the Atlantic or something. Something with an "A". Gotta keep the "A" so you don't have to order new stationery and towels.

Are you already bored with Japanese octopus porn? Looking for something really different? You might try Ulli's Roy Orbison in Cling-film site: "Hello, and welcome to my homepage. My name is Ulrich Haarburste and I like to write stories about Roy Orbison being wrapped up in cling-film. If you have written any stories about Roy being completely wrapped in clingfilm please send them to me and I may put them up on the site. If you have a site with stories about other pop stars being wrapped in cling-film, mail me and we can exchange links. "

Indignant conservative groups are protesting this week's opening of the film 'Kinsey', denouncing it as propaganda seeking to glorify the researcher they blame for inspiring the sexual revolution.
  • "Instead of being lionized, Kinsey's proper place is with Nazi Dr. Josef Mengele or your average Hollywood horror flick mad scientist," said Robert Knight, director of Concerned Women of America's Culture & Family Institute. "Kinsey mocks Christianity and condones immorality," added another spokesperson.
  • Jeez, I wasn't planning to see the movie until I read that, but now I'm curious. I guess the conservatives plan to draw a lot of attention to the film with protests, drawing on the same masterful battle strategy used by Bill O'Reilly to make Al Franken's crappy book a major best-seller.
