MICHAEL WOLF | PHOTOGRAPHY | HONGKONG - the architecture of density. Odd stuff, but also kinda fascinating.

AOL pulls the plug on Usenet! "The Usenet dates back to around 1980. Now that blogs and instant messaging have supplanted older Internet technologies such as newsgroups and IRC, it's unlikely that AOL users will create much of an uproar over the decision. But the event nonetheless represents a milestone in Internet history."

The next big talk show host - Tyra Banks. The show is not scheduled to start until fall, which will give Tyra time to learn some of the essential skills of talk show hosting, like talking for example, and maybe the alphabet if she has time.

"He's my father, married to my sister. That makes me his son and his brother-in-law. That is such a moral transgression."
  • "Brothers and sisters, I have none ... but this man's father is my father's son!"
  • It always gives me a great sense of relief to know that we live in a simple world where moral transgressions are easily spied, because I often fail to recognize them.

Draft 2000: The Quarterbacks. There were five guys rated higher than Tom Brady. Where is that Hofstra legend, Giovanni Carmazzi, now that we need him? Well, the COWBOYS need him. Here are Giovanni Carmazzi's lifetime stats in the NFL. Most impressive.

Forget cowbell - I gotta have more bagpipes!! Act now on the Burns Night Special: Digital Bagpipes!
  • I swear I didn't make up one word of this quote: "The best-looking MIDI pipes ever are these on the right, made by Version Midi. They sell for around $5,000, and are played by Spanish bagpipe hearthrob José Ángel Hevia."
  • Scholars generally argue that given the age and continuity of the English language, it is difficult to construct a completely original phrase, but I have to believe that the words "Spanish bagpipe heartthrob" have never been together before.

Great video - 101 celebrities tell their favorite swear words to Britain's Channel 4. I don't think Channel 4 will be getting a US franchise from the FCC any time soon.

Director John Madden (SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE) has been selected to turn Elmore Leonard's crime noir novel KILLSHOT into a Miramax movie. At one point Quentin Tarantino wanted to be the man in the director's chair but things failed to materialize. Tarantino or Madden? I can see that. They have a lot in common. Why not do both? I'm pretty sure they could both make the same movie and nobody would realize they were using the same source novel.

The Weekend Warrior's box office predictions. There are only two new films this week, both unreviewed, one of them virtually unmarketed. Two meritorious Oscar nominees are being expanded from mini to general distribution. The Warrior expects Hide and Seek to ride its ubiquitous marketing campaign to the #1 spot, and he calls Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby #2.

This week's expanded releases: Million Dollar Baby - 94% positive reviews. Since the new releases are two untested horror flicks, this is probably a great week to catch Sideways or Million Dollar Baby, two Oscar nominees going into wider distribution.

This week's movies: Alone in the Dark - no reviews. It's the official week for horror movies with no advance screenings. Unlike Hide and Seek, this one is coming out with little fanfare, and I can't imagine why it's getting a theatrical release rather than going straight to video. I haven't seen it, but expect the worse. Ewe Boll's last directorial effort (House of the Dead) is rated 28th worst of all time at IMDb.

OSCAR.com - 77th Annual Academy Awards - Nominees: Nominee List. Surprises:
  • Paul Giamatti was not nominated as Best Actor for Sideways
  • Michael Mann was not nominated as Best Director for Collateral (surprise replacement: veteran Mike Leigh for Vera Drake)
  • Red State/Blue State update: Passion of the Christ was nominated for Best Cinematography and one minor award. Fahrenheit 9/11 was shut out

This week's movies: Hide and Seek - no reviews. No reviews? Nobody has seen it? They are hiding it? That can't be good, can it? I'm surprised, because the trailer is not bad. The one "rated" review at RT is for the 1999 movie with the same title.

Seven clips from Because of Winn-Dixie.
  • "Based on the perennial best seller, a lonely young girl adopts an orphaned dog, Winn-Dixie (so named for the supermarket where she found him), who helps her makes friends in the small Florida town. The bond between the girl and her special companion brings together the townspeople, and helps heal her own troubled relationship with her father."

Please enjoy sex with a woman before watching this, because it will be your last such sex. This is the Spongebob video that will make you gay. Believe me, I know. I watched it, then spent the entire day shaving my chest and trying to score tickets for the Cher Farewell Tour.

The trailer for Crispin Glover's new film, What is It? Makes Eraserhead look like an episode of the Cosby Show. It does include some female nudity.
