Firefox users ignore online ads, change the internet business model. This coudl be a very big deal, because many sites rely on ad revenues to maintain viability. If Firefox gains share and clicks fall, ad revenues may fall. Then there will have to be, as the business geeks say, "a new paradigm". Somehow, I think we and the internet will survive.

Michael Moore is a fat assed self righteous loser. He got his nose rubbed in the piece of liberal crap he was so proud of. As for hugging Hollywood, does he actually believe we're stupid enough to listen to those rich,drug and alcohol abusers ? Look at Dan Rather and CNN. People may be realizing that the media is telling it (slanted so left they're sick and tired of it) off the middle ground. Dem's are so far left now that they blew real Dem's to the right to find common ground. Wake up!! OH! IT'S TOO LATE. You're soooo smart Mikey.

Here's the trailer for Dark Water, Jennifer Connelly's new film. : "Based on a film by the successful Japanese filmmakers who created 'The Ring' comes this haunting, chilling film about a young mother who goes to extreme lenghts to keep her daughter safe. Dahlia Williams (Jennifer Connelly) is starting a new life; newly separated with a new job and a new apartment, she's determined to put her relationship with her estranged husband behind her and devote herself to raising her daughter, Ceci. But when the strained separation disintegrates into a bitter custody battle, her situation takes a turn for the worse. Her new apartment - dilapidated, cramped, and worn - seems to take on a life of its own. Mysterious noises, persistent leaks of dark water, and strange happenings cause her imagination to run wild, leaving her to wonder who is behind the endless mind games. As Dahlia frantically searches for the links between the riddles, the dark water seems to close around her. But one thing trumps all others in Dahlia's world: no matter what it is that's out there, nothing is going to harm her little girl."

Think there's no good reason to visit Cleveland as a tourist? I guess you haven't heard about the Contraception Museum, one of the very few places where you can find out what crocodile dung and beaver-testicle tea have in common. In fact, if you need to know that, your choices are pretty much just the Cleveland Contraception Museum and the Clinton Library.

Paris Hilton covers Lennon's "Fame", Blondie's "Heart of Glass". Do you believe this album will not be ready for Christmas? This would have been my Christmas present to everyone on my list. Now you'll all be getting "Hung for the Holidays" instead.

Baby Spice as America's next pop diva?

Posh Spice as the Virgin Mary? Yes, in wax. Madame Tussaud's has created a nativity scene from their wax celebrities.
  • "David and Victoria Beckhams' waxworks take the role of Mary and Joseph. President Bush, Tony Blair and The Duke of Edinburgh are the Three Wise Men and Kylie Minogue is the Guardian Angel. Other celebrities to feature in the nativity are Graham Norton, Samuel L Jackson and Hugh Grant as shepherds."
  • I did like the idea of one of the shepherds looking like "Julie Andrews on heroin", but it turned out that the story was mistaken. The third shepherd wasn't really a wax Hugh Grant. It was the real Hugh Grant.
  • Samuel L Jackson as a shepherd? "This here's the Sheep Dog. When you absolutely, positively got to round up every motherfuckin' sheep in the herd, accept no substitutes."

Here's the trailer for Appleseed: "With eye-popping, in-your-face visuals, 'Appleseed' boasts a new form animation called '3D Live Anime.' A combination of groundbreaking three-dimensional computer animation, in conjunction with two-dimensional character animation recreates the best qualities of traditional cel-based anime. Set in the year 2131, after most of the world has been devastated by war, 'Appleseed' chronicles the battle between mankind and bioroids, a race of cybernetic pseudo-clones designed to aid humans in domestic capacities. But when ideologies flare and aggression rises to the surface, the thin veneer of peaceful coexistence is shattered."

This story has two parts: the first part is that a family put their late grandfather's ghost and cane up for sale on e-bay. The explanation was a cute story and the auction fetched $105. Here's the actual e-bay link.

Now here's MSNBC's version of the story - Ghost cane nets $65,000 on eBay. So which is it? $105 or $65,000?
