Now the Japanese have a perfectly sensible system for presenting the news when their newsanchors are women. (VERY naughty.)

An artist who randomly vandalised nearly 50 cars for a project said the owners should be happy they were part of his 'creative process'.
  • "Mr McGowan nailed his feet to an art gallery last year - in protest against leaves. In 2003, he attracted the media's attention when he pushed a monkey nut with his nose for seven miles to 10 Downing Street in a protest over student debt."
  • He protested leaves? To whom was the protest directed?

Amityville takes #1 spot with a respectable $23 million in an uninspired weekend.
  • This time of year, new movies usually bring in $30 to $40 million in a weekend. Because Amityville's $23 million was basically the whole slice for newcomers, the second week movies dropped less than usual (27-29%, compared to a normal level of 40% or more)
  • Sahara seems to be headed for a final tally in the fifties, which doesn't seem bad until you see the production budget: $130 million. That's a vast amount for an April movie.
  • Meanwhile, Kung Fu Hustle continues to post amazing per-screen numbers in its tiny pre-release.
  • Next weekend will be very different from this one. Kung Fu Hustle will expand to 2300 theaters, and three other films will open in 1500 theaters or more: Kidman/Penn in The Interpreter, the urban comedy King's Ransom, and Kutcher/Peet in A Lot Like Love. The crowded field of debuts may cause some steep drops for the carry-overs.

Six clips from A Lot Like Love, a romantic comedy with Ashton Kutcher, Amanda Peet, Kal Penn, and Ali Larter.
  • " It takes some people years to fall in love at first sight... 'A Lot Like Love' is a romantic comedy about destiny, connection and the frequently fuzzy line between chance friendships and happily ever after. 'A Lot Like Love' traces the relationship of Oliver (Kutcher) and Emily (Peet) who meet on a flight from Los Angeles to New York seven years ago - each of them declaring that they couldn't be more wrong for each other.

    Life keeps bringing them back together over the next seven years, but the timing never seems right. As they struggle with their different partners, careers and breakups, they turn from casual acquaintances into trusted friends who can say anything to one another. As they each search for love and a relationship that's not fated for disaster, it takes seven years for Oliver and Emily to figure out that maybe what they really have is something...a lot like love."

Intel Dual-Core Systems Begin Shipping Monday
  • "Intel Corp. officials said Friday that systems containing its first dual-core processors will begin shipping Monday. Systems from Dell, Alienware, and other OEMs will begin rolling out, ending a wave of speculation as to when the systems will actually ship. Analysts predict that very few dual-core chips will be sold this year, in part because of their premium pricing. "

Two Moscow-based Intel employees have setup a Wi-Fi hotspot near the North Pole. I'm not sure if "hotspot" is really an appropriate term in this case.
