UK kicks ass in piracy! The U.K. accounts for an astounding 38% of the world's TV piracy - five times as much as the United States. In a possibly related story, the U.K. also accounts for nearly 40% of the world's sales of parrots and eyepatches. Hey, the British practically invented piracy, didn't they? What nationality do you think Long John Silver was?

An interview with Sandra Bullock. Three interesting bullet points:
  1. "I was making some crappy choices, things that maybe I shouldn't have done"
  2. She states that she has now turned things around.
  3. Her next film is Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous

Berchtesgaden, Hitler's notorious hideaway headquarters in the Bavarian Alps, is now being promoted as the ideal vacation getaway for yodeling and thigh-slapping dancing. The new resort opens next month. Do you think this will create a "furor"?

Russell Crowe wants Aussie director to salvage Eucalyptus. The Australian newspaper also said the film, which was postponed last week following the acrimonious departure of director-writer Jocelyn Moorhouse, would probably no longer star Nicole Kidman.

George Clooney makes fun of Russell Crowe.
  • The outspoken Aussie has criticized celebrities like Clooney, DeNiro and Harrison Ford who "mis-use" their celebrity to promote products. Clooney promised that he and the other guys would drop that mis-use and start mis-using their celebrity to promote their crappy new rock band, following Crowe's high-minded example.
  • Crowe must be really pissed that Paris Hilton is outscoring him at "Am I Annoying?", but he's doing everything possible to regain the top spot.

"Aniston sadly but firmly gave her husband a quiet ultimatum: Take me back now, or let me go for good... and file for divorce!"
  • Now, see, this is where women go wrong. Obviously, what any guy would do in response to that ultimatum is tell her he's taking her back, then go right on philandering behind her back. That way he gets to start having sex with her again, and doesn't have to give up the other sex with Jolie or Clooney, or whomever Pitt likes to love long time.

Rather to Host His Own Farewell Tribute on CBS, although he will hire other people to check his sources. This seems unusual, since he is the only source, but I guess one can't be too careful.

Prosecutors in Pennsylvania said yesterday they would not file charges against entertainer Bill Cosby in connection with a 31-year-old woman's allegation that he drugged and molested her. The District Attorney pointed out that the decision was unrelated to his childrens' unexplained acquisition of a lifetime supply of pudding pops.
