Several Imax theaters, including some in science museums, are refusing to show movies that mention evolution, the Big Bang or the geology of the earth. Good move, but what were they thinking of before they made this move? Those kiesterkaps were showing science films in a science museum? That's nuckin' futz.

Half of all Americans think there is too much nudity on TV. I want to know this. Which channels do they get? They must get some German programs via satellite. Either that or they're really sick of seeing that fat guy's butt on NYPD Blue.

AICN readers go ga-ga for Sin City. The reviews may be studio plants, but the key point for now is that Gugino's nudity is specifically mentioned.

You know, Scoop, I think that Sin City trailer might be one of the best of the last ten years.

No need to convince me. I have never read the comic, never heard of Frank Miller before this, and am not a fanboy in general, but they have absolutely dazzled me with the stuff released so far.


I will be there the day it opens.

New technology uses human body for broadband networking. By sending data over the surface of the skin, it may soon be possible to trade music files by dancing cheek to cheek, or to swap phone numbers by kissing. (I wasn't sure whether to filter this one through the bullshit meter.)

Kid saves the Minnesota 4A state basketball title by making a shot while lying on his back! (Apparently he was being guarded by Verne Troyer). With video. My heart goes out to the poor kid who was supposed to be guarding him, but let down his concentration because ... well, because the guy was lying on the ground, dammit!

Bobby Short, the suave, tuxedoed cabaret singer who epitomized Manhattan glamour and sophistication with renderings of the great American songbook, died of leukemia Monday, aged 80. Seeing Bobby play at the Carlyle was one of the quintessential Manhattan experiences for more than 35 years.

Further proof that The Guardian will print anything. I have often referred to them as "the world's most gullible newspaper," and I didn't even realize that they had printed the famous George Turklebaum hoax! Add this to their coverage of the Presidential I.Q. hoax, and their brilliant conclusion that the Pentagon was preparing for cataclysmic global warming.
  • "Sadly, George Turklebaum didn't live to enjoy the drama of the US election. He died of a heart attack on Monday October 23 while sitting at his desk in an open-plan office he shared with 23 others in the New York publishing house where he worked for 30 years as a proofreader. He can't be accused of going out with a bang: it was not until the next Saturday that anyone noticed. 'George was always the first guy here in the morning and the last to leave at night,' explains his boss, Elliot Wachiaski. 'So no one found it unusual he was in the same position all that time.' May he continue to rest in peace."
  • This story, of course, is notonly false, but could not be true, for various reasons involving the impact on a human body of a little thing I like to call "death." But I guess they were willing to suspend the physical laws of the universe based on the extremely reliable source: that bastion of journalistic responsibility, The Weekly World News
