A world rejoices as Olympic athlete Jana Pittman joins the fight to save the northern hairy-nosed wombat. As I picture these li'l critters in my imagination, I'm thinking for some reason that their spokesperson should be John Turturro. I don't actually know whether northern hairy-nosed wombats look like John Turturro, but I believe they should, and if they do not now, the last 90 of them should be given plastic surgery toward that end.

The nicely storyboarded trailer for Modigliani, a biopic of the great artist, focusing on his famous rivalry with Picasso. "Emotionally-charged and bathed in absinthe green, Modigliani is the decadent portrayal of this tortured genius, his debilitating addictions, and overwhelming passion. The film delivers nothing short of a deeply heartfelt tribute to the artist".

The trailer for You I Love . "A breezy comedy of manners, set in Moscow, about three strangers from very different walks of life (a female news anchor, a male ad executive and a young man who works in the zoo). These three form a fast-evolving relationship as friends and lovers, upending tradition and responding to the craziness of daily life in modern Russia"

Astounding and scary story. "The latest big fine by the FCC against a TV network -- a record $1.2 million against Fox for its 'sexually suggestive' Married by America -- was brought about by three complaints."

Very bad news for that African tribe that worships Salma Hayek's breasts. Scientists have discovered that celebrity worshippers are harming their mental health. It is bad news for me as well. I belong to a vary rare cult which worships former baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn. Maybe I'll be OK. He's not really a celebrity, is he?

MVP #7 for Barry Bonds, following a year in which he broke more seemingly unbreakable barriers, amassing 232 walks and a .609 on-base percentage. Beltre and Pujols finished 2-3.
  • Bonds also hit 30 homers or more for the 13th consecutive year, a record.
  • Seven MVPs is a baseball record, but is still two behind the major sports record, held by Wayne Gretzky

Hey, Hollywood, HERE'S your next sports movie. Soccer is a lot more fun when the players can use their cars. "A first-division soccer match was abandoned in Moldova after a furious club official drove his car onto the pitch and tried to run over the referee when the opposing side was awarded a penalty."
  • You have to read the story. He actually tried several times to get the ref. The best part of the story is the result: the Moldovan soccer federation (which is presumably one guy named Mikosh) fined the guy in the car a whopping thousand quid. So I guess if he had only made one pass at the ref, he could have skated in for about fifty bucks.

"'As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron." H. L Mencken wrote that in 1920. He proved to be right soon thereafter when Warren Harding was elected that same year.

The trailer for After Midnight. In After Midnight, the magical Mole Antonelliana (the cavernous Museum of Cinema in Turin, Italy) is the setting and inspiration for a very unlikely love story. One fateful evening, Martino, an avid cinephile and the museum's timid night watchman, comes to the aid of Amanda, an enchanting young fast-food cook on the run from the police after dousing her overbearing boss with hot oil. Martino's dreamy kingdom of silent movie characters becomes a sanctuary for Amanda, as she awaits rescue by her devilish car-jacking boyfriend Angel. Spellbound by the museum, Amanda develops a surprising romantic connection with Martino, who until now has only found companionship in his celluloid dreams. Torn between her newfound feelings for Martino and her troubled relationship with the irresistible Angel, Amanda attempts to balance the affections of her two suitors. Misadventure and chaos ensue as the characters become embroiled in this dubious love triangle. Infused with humor, intelligence, and passion, After Midnight is a masterful homage to the silent movie era. Ferrario's daring visual choices and unconventional storytelling make for a charming celebration of love and cinema.

The first pictures from Million Dollar Baby: "In the wake of a painful estrangement from his daughter, boxing trainer Frankie Dunn (Clint Eastwood) has been unwilling to let himself get close to anyone for a very long time - then Maggie Fitzgerald (Hilary Swank) walks into his gym. In a life of constant struggle, Maggie's gotten herself this far on raw talent, unshakable focus and a tremendous force of will. But more than anything, she wants someone to believe in her. The last thing Frankie needs is that kind of responsibility - let alone that kind of risk - but won over by Maggie's sheer determination, he begrudgingly agrees to take her on. In turns exasperating and inspiring each other, the two come to discover that they share a common spirit that transcends the pain and loss of their pasts, and they find in each other a sense of family they lost long ago. Yet, they both face a battle that will demand more heart and courage than any they've ever known."

The trailer for Conspiracy of Silence: "Set in modern day Ireland, 'Conspiracy of Silence' begins with two seemingly unrelated events - the unexpected suicide of beloved and well-respected Father Frank Sweeny, and the expulsion of idealistic, young Seminary student, Daniel McLaughlin. Local investigative reporter, David Foley, aggressively pursues the two stories and begins to uncover a deadly secret that links both incidents and leads directly up to the highest ranks of the Church. His suspicions are confirmed when he receives anonymous threats and is chased by mysterious and shadowy figures. As he digs deeper he unwillingly puts his and his young family's lives in grave danger. Meanwhile, Daniel is forced to make a decision that could haunt him forever - will he return to the Church and help cover-up its lies and deceit, or will he surrender all dreams of becoming a priest and return to the beautiful girl he left behind."
